Empirical Labs DocDerr 500 Series Channel Strip - Horizontal

500 Series channel strip
MFR# EL/Rx-H DocDerr

Product Description

The Empirical Labs DocDerr is 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.

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 is available with either horizontal or vertically oriented front panel configurations.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
