Smack it Down - Reign it In - Warm it Up - Spread it Out. The UBK Fatso.
Put the analog tone-butter on your digital tracks with an Empirical Labs EL7 Fatso thats been modified by Kush Audio and UBK. A Completely retooled compressor section is what sets the UBK Fatso apart form a stock Fatso. Designed to give the operator the most unflinchingly musical compression regardless of the sound being processed or the amount of compression being applied, it will never pump or fold. The UBK Fatso makes easy work of the most difficult and mysterious process in sound engineering: compression.
Vintage Limiting, smooth optp leveling, transparent reduction, aggressive modern squeeze... whatever your vision, the UBK Fatso not only makes it possible, it makes it easy!
7 Unique compressors, - 4 labeled presets plus 3 "hidden gems", produce a remarkable range of flavor, attitude, and grab.o.
