DBX SL. 2-channel Compressor/Limiter Patent-pending AutoVelocity™ circuit dB of Dynamic Range High-Drive output transformer. The dbx S is a stereo compressor could not be more complete consists of a multitude of rotary pots, buttons, LEDs, and two good old. Despite being both smaller and lighter, this new compressor yields little in performance to Dbx’s flagship SL. The name Dbx is pretty much synonymous with.

Also on the back panel, dbx has provided three push-button switches for each compressor channel: Finally, here we are in the thick of it. At first it is also imperative handled with tweezers, as mistakes can be made.

Request dbbx new review. The Auto button toggles between manual and automatic attack and release times. Attack time is defined as the time the compressor takes to respond after program levels have exceeded the threshold setting.

Including playing time break: Auto mode is great for live situations where you don’t have time. Well to correct all these inconveniences manual mode, and just put it into action to get everything in order, except that the sound loses part of its appeal. The lighted VU meter has two scales: The amount of control available for both specific effects, like spanky drum and guitar sounds, and more classic applications such as vocal recording is unsurpassed by any other previous dbx compressor.
You can hear the confident “click” of a hard-wired bypass relay with a verifying red LED when you select sidechain mode. It does this without introducing harsh-sounding artifacts. To back up a moment, PeakStop was first introduced with the dbx A compressor and allows setting up an absolute ceiling for all fast transients that outpace or slip by the compressor’s gain reduction setting.
But after compressed and limited the signal, there is still, in this first case, the output gain knob to regain what was lost level dynamically.
In sidechain mode, the compressor responds to signals coming into the sidechain return connector rather than the normal input. This makes it much simpler to use and allows compressor work much more finesse, since the settings are changing constantly following the signal envelope, a pretty daunting thing to do manually. Optional AD converter board X: This “brick wall” limiting is an important feature for successfully engineering maximum-level digital recordings, radio broadcasts or satellite transponder audio uplinks.
This compressor has been tweaked through its taken by a specialist, which led to a great and professional tool.
This posed with a little practice and a look at the lights on the facade of the S allows to navigate quickly. The Output Gain control adjusts the output level with up to 20 dBu of makeup gain. In OverEasy mode, the dialed-in ratio setting is not fully reached until the signal has exceeded the OverEasy range 160xl the red LED lights. Including 160ssl operation Overeasy triggered mode. I have always used and preferred the dbx compressor for the OverEasy mode for its musicality. We will come back later.
The second observation is its ability “to eat” decibel easily and without reproach. This feature helps to soften the activation of the VCA to the trigger point, which resulted in making softer and more discreet compression. 10sl

Where the DBX is perfectly astonishing is used for purely creative, so its potential can be outstanding. Release time is defined as the time the compressor takes to return to original levels after the last excursion over threshold. There is an LED “traffic light” that shows when the signal is below dnx green dbz, over threshold redand yellow when the OverEasy mode is selected and the level is in the OverEasy threshold range.
A short signal path is used for sidechain de-essing or ducking functions. If you have arrived at a threshold level setting with OverEasy switched out and then switch it in, you will notice more gain reduction movement on the meter.
16s0l The Threshold control adjusts the input level above which compression occurs. The so-called “Side Chain” feature allows to introduce in the loop detection S bike as an external equalizer, turning eg a de-esser to compet.
This then becomes an exercise in breathtaking style.
Pin 1, Unbalanced and Ground. Mix Magazine “Compression And Compressors”. The Unbalanced switch changes the output of the SL from balanced to unbalanced and drops the level 6 dB. You could also short pin 3 to ground if you want to unbalance but keep the level up.
Though precise, the nomenclature can be confusing, dbs since there is no established convention among compressor manufacturers as to whether fully clockwise is fastest or slowest. Back face a series of buttons change the system output symmetrical asymmetrical cut with or without mass, with the possibility of setting up 1 point for a floating mass or making dgx chassis ground central point of the transformer chassis.
