User reviews: dbx X – Audiofanzine

I have seen a lot of them in guitar racks for some time. 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 don’t think you would want this for studio applications.

DBX has a very distinct and so you have to be very careful as to how much to use. Not only does it once the settings for both, but it behaves like a “real” stereo: The unit lay out is about as simple as you can get. He mixed all of his guitars in a stereo bus dedicated to this pair of compressors. I have tried this on Live Sound and snare is the most common use for it or in a guitar rig it is great.


Over a button-easy for a more gradual compression, and a bypass, a truth, which directly connects the input jack to output jack. I do it again this choice without any problems! And have a sound that loses the level when it exceeds the threshold.

Threshold, ratio, output, bypass To record voice and acoustic guitar. Mono Analog Compressor Rack 1U in height. There are other very real compressors, much more expensive as the xbx the dbxLA2A For cuts of pork, we can push beyond the ratio of the infinite!

Using this unit you wont be able just to click on different limiting presets and compression presets. I have never used compressor that level but in terms of transparency, 610x is sufficient to compare the processed sound and the sound and untreated in terms of compression efficiency, well The sound comes off fairly well with the Bass Drum which itself goes into a via a bus the tablewhich is exactly what I was looking I have been using this limiter off and on for bout 7 years now, im not sure when it was created probably way before I started using it but comparing it to any software limiters is a mistake.

I think it’s a good value but of course, home studio, you can do without this kind of tool.

If you like colored compressor this unit will suffice but if your not use to compression this will be over your head. To describe the somewhat “universal Swiss Army knife” of the craft I used this for very specific instruments such as snare drum or at times a kick drum, but not on vocals.


He had with him-among others-2 dbx X. But without changing an iota of the original sound.

The output gain is monstrous: For the price 160z 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.

Finally it should be noted that one can also use it on stage, I was tough enough air for that! Everything has been said, it’s a great machine. By using our services, you agree to our use of cookies.

I think back to others later, vbx it does not cost too much to chance I love DBX for live but not my favorite in the studio. When you need it, it triggers the button “slave” on one of two compressors, and it made all the settings on the other.

The price is what will draw most to these, as they are quite cheap, but not cheap enough that they can be considered an entry level compressor. It can be seen as a good or not 160d to what you want, but in my opinion, color the sound is not a compressor Once it was removed, it was a more punchy, more honest with attacks.
