Microphone Pre Amps

EL Mike-E EL9 Pair

When the engineering team at Empirical Labs sets out to build a microphone preamp, you can be sure it’ll deliver spectacular sound, be effortless to work, and will provide features unlike any other device in its class. To that end, we proudly present Mike-E, a high performance transformer-coupled mic preamp with a noise floor far below any microphone’s self noise, combined with a one-of-a-kind compressor/saturator circuit that delivers classic knee compression as well as versatile tonal ‘coloring’ that can replicate many of the best characteristics of vintage analog recording equipment.

In today’s modern age of digital recorders, DAWs and software plug-ins, Mike-E is the ultimate solution for getting a clean and strong, yet warm and musical signal into the box…and it couldn’t be easier to work – its front panel layout is so straight ahead that even inexperienced engineers will have no problem moving around on it right away.

Key Features

  • Mic Preamplifier with super low noise and stepped gain switching.
  • Built in ‘Direct Box’, called the ‘Inst In’, offers unparalleled distortion, noise, and frequency response when pre-amping instruments.
  • ‘Colored’ 80Hz High pass filter emulates the warm low frequency cut of our favorite vintage equalizers.
  • Phase Switch to invert the audio signal 180 degrees.
  • CompSat offers both a musical Compressor/Limiter and a unique tape-like saturation circuit.
  • Emphasis high-frequency emphasis system softens high frequency ‘pile-ups’ and further the creamy color of the Mike-E.
  • Mix Control allows the blending of the Compressed/Saturated signal with the clean unprocessed “Dry” signal.
