The Arousor is the only classic knee compressor plugin made by the creators of the Distressor, Empirical Labs. It’s been well over 20 years since Empirical Labs released its first compressor, the Distressor. From those early days on, Empirical Labs has been bombarded with requests for a great compressor plugin for those working in the box… and it had to be one with the creamy sound and ease-of-use of our own award winning hardware compressors. We are sure you will find the 20+ year wait worth it!


With twelve powerful sections of processing, BIG FrEQ offers the ability to create modern “flat-top” parametric shapes with an analog workflow and added controls for more tone-shaping possibilities than a typical EQ plug-in. Inspired by the precision and warmth of Empirical Labs Lil FrEQ parametric equalizer, BIG FrEQ introduces superior fine tuning controls for surgical tone shaping and a unique FINISHER section for adding organic harmonic distortion. Like the plug-in’s predecessor, the Arousor, Empirical Labs brings the soul of analog hardware to the digital realm and includes features that can not be replicated in the analog domain. As always, Empirical Labs offers new twists and functionality to their new plug-in EQ and labors over making it mindless to learn, and just plain FUN to use.


Since its release in 2016, the AROUSOR has become an industry standard used on dozens of Grammy Winning records. Now, that glorious AROUSOR sound is available in its simplified and cost-effective little brother: AROUSOR LT

Like the full version, AROUSOR LT is a Classic Knee Compressor plug-in, with identical processing. Its Distressor “DNA”, gives it that look, feel and sound of beloved analog compressors. AROUSOR LT brings all this tone and functionality into a price range that works for everyone. The “AROUSOR SOUND” top tier engineers rely on for their hit tracks will now improve your mixes at a price that won’t sprain your wallet.

By simplifying the controls, hiding a few functions, and reducing the available ratios from 12 to the most commonly used 4, the AROUSOR LT provides the core sound and function of the full version in a low cost, easy to use but still powerful package. The AROUSOR LT can excite any source, be it an instrument, voice, submix or master buss. Just like the full version, LT provides Mono and Stereo versions.

Empirical Labs plugins are available to PC and Mac users (VST, AU and AAX) and require an iLok account.
