West Milford, NJ – Empirical Labs is pleased to announce the DocDerr, a brand new
API 500 series multi-purpose channel strip. This breakthrough tone enhancement
module houses six different sections of digitally controlled analog processing at an
extremely affordable price point ($799 MSRP).
A super low-noise preamp capable of line or 16 dB of “instrument” gain is followed
by four sections of EQ offering one selectable high pass and three parametric bands.
 The dynamics section provides renowned Empirical Labs compression at an
unprecedented price, as well as a tape emulation circuit to soften high frequencies
and clips.  A “Mix” knob allows the user to blend the uncompressed EQ’s signal with
the compressed and saturated signal.  Inputs and outputs are DC coupled, and the
output can be switched between single ended or differential, yielding + 6dB of gain.
 A “Bad!” hard clip indicator monitors most every section for internal clipping.

“I couldn’t be more delighted with this piece,” says ELI founder and designer Dave
Derr.  “It has an interface and feature set unlike anything else on the market.”
The DocDerr model EL-Rx will be available with either horizontal or vertically
oriented front panel configurations, and begins shipping July 2011.
