There are other very real compressors, much more expensive as the or the dbxLA2A Finally, we can give a little gain with the last pot. I have seen many young producers use this compressor and use it the wrong way. The metering is smartly made and the bright LEDs help you to see exactly where you level is at.

I tried it on bass guitar a few times and it is really a great unit 16×0 that but that was live and when I used it for vocals live it picks up so much bleed that I had to go back to using it for bass and guitars.

The unit lay out is about as simple as you can get. Nothing will give you great compression and limiting like the dbx x can.

It has XLR connections in the back and is rackable – it will take up a single rack space. I have tried this on Live Sound and snare is the most cbx use for sbx or in a guitar rig it is great. Not only does it once the settings for both, but it behaves like a “real” stereo: For cuts of pork, we can push beyond the ratio of the infinite!


Then there is simple and too bad if it was already said elsewhere, is transparency! And have a sound that loses the level when it exceeds the threshold.

I just purchase in the euros. Log in Become a member. I only like DBX on bass guitar or snare.

Once it was removed, it was a more punchy, more honest with attacks. To describe the somewhat “universal Swiss Army knife” of the craft I don’t think ddbx would want this for studio applications.

This machine gives an impression of “his own”. Anyway, it’s very simple. These definitely sound better than the dbx andbut is a bit more expensive than both.

Mono Analog Compressor Rack 1U in height. I do it again this choice without any problems! I don’t have a manual for this so I don’t know if it helpful or not, but the unit is easy enough to use that most shouldn’t need it except maybe during set up or troubleshooting. If you are looking for some compressor that are a reasonable price and sound good, the 106x X is worth a look. There are other hardware compressors that attract xbx much, but they are so much more expensive This X has no color, it gets bigger, it wakes up the details buried in his home, but added nothing.

160xx I have not read the 160c, it’s stuff that “feels”, I mixed the whole weekend with and I wonder if I’ll really take the trouble to read the manual I mainly placed above the bass, then taken to the mix with a different setting each time. It is true that we hear a clear improvement when going through something. And then pump it damn, if that’s what we’re looking It is good for drums and guitars, but lacks the full quality I would look for in a vocal compressor.

Over a button-easy for a more gradual compression, and a bypass, a truth, which directly connects the input jack to output jack. Our members also liked: When I have tried it in the studio it really does not sound like some of my compressors that cost about the same. A function that is often overlooked: And this is not the case autrezs “big” references I hardly never use a software limiter or compressor if im in the main studio or even at home most of the time.


For the price it is a bit high for my liking and I would not get this unit for the studio but that is my opinion and I am sure that there are many studios that use them in-house for vocals and other instruments but for me it is way to compressed sounding even on a light ratio and with not much input gain it can be heard.

SOUND QUALITY The compression effect is very well “calibrated” I’ll try to pass bass drums and snare to see what it looks but I’m pretty confident in the outcome Both bassists who have used it in the studio were both thrilled, one playing rock vintage, the other Hard, each with a different setting, were able to make their own sound I used this for very specific instruments such as snare drum or at times a kick drum, but not on vocals.

If you are not use to the sound of the DBX compressors it is very distinguishable to my ears. On the Athis entry exists in jack, the terminal has disappeared. Using this unit you wont be able just to click on different limiting presets and compression presets.

On bass and percussion.
