A Complete Empirical Labs Channel Strip!

Get your hands on a ELI Trak Pak complete 2U channel strip from Empirical Labs. For a limited time only, the ELI Trak Pak puts two of Empirical Labs hottest units (an EL-9 Mike-E and an EL-Q Lil Freq) together into one power-packed processing bundle that saves you hundreds on the gear you want. Start off with the EL-9 Mike-E, an amazing, low-noise digitally controlled mic pre loaded with dynamics tools that give your tracks serious punch. The Mike-E's CompSat section gives you one of the most sought-after sounds in the industry, adding smooth compression and saturation to a unique Emphasis control. Add to that an EL-Q Lil Freq fully parametric equalizer, with its built in highpass filter and adaptive dynamics, and the ELI Trak Pak gives you one of the best sounding signal paths out there!
