L'avis de Nonolepiano"Formidable machine"

Empirical Labs Mike-E EL-9
Superbe préamp, fonction compsat géniale, compresseur que je siturai entre un distressor et un fatso.
Y'aurai un eq en plus ce ne serait que mieux, mais bon j'arrête de me plaindre !!


Superbe d'utilisation compression parallèle très utile


Plusieurs soniorités possibles grace au compsat, plutot simuler un préamp à lampes ou un au germanium, il sait tout faire


C'est génial je l'adore !! surtout la section compresseur qui est le coeur de la machine. Seul souci on en veut immédiatement un second pour la stéréo.
Quelque petits soucis de fiabilité, mais l'excellent Cédric Marion de chez Jukebox, m'a réglé ça sans problème et très rapidement

Empirical Labs Mike-E EL-9
The Empirical Labs EL9 Mike-E is an analog channel strip that consists of both a mic preamp and a compressor.  The unit has both 1/4 inch and XLR connections and is generally pretty user friendly.  It is indeed a rack mountable piece of outboard gear and will take up only a single space in a traditional rack.


The make up of the Empirical Labs EL9 Mike-E isn't too hard to follow overall.  It is easy to use and has parameters that are ubiquitous across most mic pres and compressors, so those with previous experience with channel strips like this one should be able to adapt to this rather quickly.  In the mic pre section, you've got parameters for plus or minus gain as well as a phase button and a phantom power button.  The compression section has parameters for drive, comp mode, ratio, attack, release, and mix.  There is also an overall output level knob that is in its own section.  I haven't seen the manual for the EL9 so I can't say too much about it.


The all around sound quality of the Empirical Labs EL9 Mike-E is very impressive.  The mic pre is quite accurate and has a sound that can be described as fat and wide.  The compressor is probably the most impressive part about this unit, however.  Since compressors are their specialty, the compressor in this channel strip has an incredible sound.  It has a variety of parameters that make it possible to get all sorts of different tones.  For this reason I find it easy to use the EL9 in tandem with just about any type of instrument or voice as it can adapt to all sorts of different situations.


I've been using the Empirical Labs EL9 Mike-E for about a year and it has become one of my favorite pieces of gear made by Empirical Labs, which is saying a lot considering their impressive line of gear.  I would definitely recommend it as a top choice for those looking for a top tier channel strip with a great sounding pre and an even better sounding compressor.  While the price isn't exactly cheap, it is reasonable and is aimed at those professionals looking for great tone regardless of the price.  All in all the Empirical Labs EL9 Mike-E is a very impressive unit that should be looked into by any professional engineer interested in new and exciting channel strips.
