DISTRESSOR EL8 MANUAL PDF

No nonsense audio engineering. Just finally getting around to writing a review for this blog. They are very versatile units that have lots of different capabilities. If you look through the manual you can learn plenty of what this baby can do and how. If you were to just buy one compressor for all of your tracking duties, I believe the Distressor would be it.

No nonsense audio engineering. Just finally getting around to writing a review for this blog. They are very versatile units that have lots of different capabilities. If you look through the manual you can learn plenty of what this baby can do and how. If you were to just buy one compressor for all of your tracking duties, I believe the Distressor would be it.

It can be mellow, it can be ridiculously over the top. You can lightly tap a signal or crush it to all oblivion. You can emulate tape saturation, emulate tube optical compressors, emulate an , or do super clean high fidelity transparent limiting. Really a surprising piece of gear. I wish I had five more. The Sound The Distressor is a very hi-fi piece of equipment, boasting a frequency response of something like 20hzkhz accuracy with all of the "Distortion" modes turned off.

It can sound quite transparent, which is something a lot of people are worried about before buying - they think "eh, it may be too aggressive for me. Very wide! Very mellow. The attack and release times are quite variable, so you have lots of options for super mellow compression. However, if you want to get a little bit dirty, Distortion mode 2 emulates second order harmonics, which is generally associated with tube like saturation.

Distortion mode 3 emulates second and third order harmonics, which can closely emulate the sound of magnetic tape saturation. Keep in mind these Dist modes are emulating saturation, not any specific pieces of gear.

The different attack, release, and knee curves of the various ratios provide different compression sounds, and the different attack and release times can provide that classic sound. The Dist modes may be used in conjunction to further accentuate the warmth of the source.

I like it on or , fast attack and fast release, Dist modes off, just tapping 1 - 3dB on kicks, snares, etc. This helps prevent any clipping, and also keeps the source a little more consistent in level. You know how drummers always play quieter while checking the mics Set with a low ratio, fast attack and fast release, with Dist 3 mode on, the sound somewhat resembles analog take saturation, which can nicely warm up guitars and give them some edge.

The Distressor can in general is a very pleasing soft knee compressor that is quite transparent at lower ratios. Once you get into and higher, it becomes more obvious compression. Throw it on "Nuke" and destroy your drum room mics - it really sounds quite special on that setting.

You turn the knobs, you watch the lights, and you hear the difference. I use it while tracking, I use it while mixing, Ive even used it live! Bass, vocals, drums, guitars, percussion, it REALLY does it all, and not in the way that it "does 20 things okay as opposed to one thing great.

May not be the best, but it always works. I love pieces of gear that always work. It rocks. Very easy to learn, lots of great info in the startup manual they include, and tons of great info about it online.

It is a rack mountable piece of gear and will take up just a single space. Overall, without a doubt one of the compressors I use the most. The Big knobs are very comfortable and the recall is accurate. Best of all, when you want to vote very, very close and slightly saturated, it works to hell. Procured analog distortions have nothing to do with guitar amps, they are softer saturation, goes very well with voices, guitars or snares. Like all well-built machines that work well and it is not cheap, but good.
