For vocals, even at a mere 2: There are other very real compressors, much more expensive as the or the dbxLA2A If you hit this compressor with a very hard signal you will hear the compression and the sound of the unit. It is true that we hear a clear improvement when going through something.

And A are made in China I don’t think you would want this for studio applications. I have tried this on Live Sound and snare is the most common use for it or in a guitar rig it is great. On this terminal, there is a jumper between the compressor inlet and the detection input: I would buy a better compressor such as the Empirical Labs or a really high end unit. A super mono compressor, stupid: What I like least: If rbx are looking for some compressor that are 1660x reasonable price and sound good, the dbx X is worth a look.


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.

User reviews: dbx X – Audiofanzine

If you use two X stereo from time to time, you can leave the jack coupling continuously. Using this unit you wont be able 160 to click on different limiting presets and compression presets.

Sort by most recent most useful. Our members also liked: I do it again this choice without any problems! The manual will only help you if you know compression and how much to use or not to use.

Did you find this review helpful? I love DBX for live but not my favorite in the studio. Threshold, ratio, fbx, bypass Not only does it once the settings for both, but it behaves like a “real” stereo: The sound of the unit is not what I want in a compressor for all things. If you like colored compressor this unit will suffice but if your not use to compression this will be over your head.

This analog limiter is a rack able unit that can also be used as a compressor as well. I used this for very specific instruments such as snare drum or at dvx a kick drum, but not on vocals. One of my friends told me that ingestion front of people “known” Veronique Sanson and others used it on each slice of the table, but also on their table every ride!! Request a new review.

When I have tried it in the studio it really does not sound like some of my compressors that cost about the dbbx.

It can be seen as a good or not according to what you want, but in my opinion, color the sound is not a compressor And this is not the case autrezs “big” references I own or have owned a few compressors: Mono Analog Compressor Rack 1U in height. Everything has been said, it’s a great machine.

I have not read the manual, 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. I just purchase in the euros.
