The FATSO (Full Analog Tape Simulator and Optimizer) is a digitally controlled analog device that gives musicians and engineers easy access to many of the desirable characteristics exhibited by older tube and Class A electronics and magnetic tape mediums. This two-channel audio processor musically integrates frequencies and transients, increasing apparent volume while maintaining tight control over peak levels.
ELEVEN is a new compressor for the FATSO that replaces the old GP Ratio and emulates the famous UREI 1176LN in 20:1, with the slowest attack and fastest release. This 1176 setting has been used on countless hit records over the years. With the slower "1176" attack, the transients keep the dynamics present, whereas the high ratio can drastically limit the dynamic range of any source, making it present and sitting in a nice little spot in your mix. It can be slammed or simply touched with a few dB of compression. It sounds great on vocals, bass, acoustic guitars, drum room mikes, pianos, and so on.
