When you think ELI, you think rock & roll. You think Dave Derr. You think quality modern analog. Aggressive, but never harsh in the extremes. The Empirical Labs Complete Collection allows you to do more than think about it. It lets you hear it, feel it, touch it, and taste it. All. For less.

Made in close collaboration with Dave Derr himself, this bundle of Empirical plug-ins will give your mixes that coveted analog tang heard on so many thousands of records. Precisely modeled and calibrated with mixing professionals and recording engineers in mind, the collection brings the retro grunge that ELI does so well into the DAW-based studio. Into your studio.

Here we are now


Empirical Labs, under the leadership of the pro audio icon Dave Derr, is on a mission to make innovative, long-lasting equipment that’s a riot to use. With greatest hits like Fatso, DerrEsser, and Distressor, it’s safe to say they’re succeeding. Part of that success is due to ELI's dedication to real-world testing and results. As well as the conviction to go past good enough. ELI insist on continuing to refine their products. It’s an ethos we can get behind.

And so, after fifteen years of friendship and fun, we have. With a dedication to sound quality and quality gear, we proudly introduce four new products from Softube + Empirical Labs: Mike-E Comp, Lil FrEQ, Trak Pak, and the Empirical Labs Complete Collection.
