A setting of 2: Compression lessens the loudness variations among the strings and increases the dvx. It is nice to have a few of these at once while you are tracking if you like to track drums with compression.

The system can then be run at higher levels and will only be dropped back when dam- aging signals are present. The equal- izer can be adjusted for boost with a peak of about 5kHz, causing the cym- bal to be compressed on a very loud crash, stopping tape saturation at high frequencies, where there is less headroom.

You will have a lot of control over your music but you can do the same with software as well except the software limiters just arent as good, manua you spend a ton of money on a limiter and compression plug in and in that case the dbx x would be cheaper to go with because it is not expensive at mamual anymore.


Plug in the AC power cable to power On the unit. Depending on the THRESHOLD setting, lower manyal fundamentals or harmonics will not cause compression, and the program is not subject to the phase shift nor- mally caused by program equalization. Of course, when compression does occur, the level of the entire program is affected. However, it will generally be found that large amounts of compression are more audible in a mixed stereo program than they might be on the separate tracks that were mixed to cre- ate the program.


The hardest hitting instruments. And have a sound that loses the level when it exceeds the 1160x. Using a Filter in the Level Detector Circuit The results of inserting a filter in the level detector circuit are basically the same as obtained with an equalizer, as previously described.

We chose a ratio, and adjust the Threshold watching small LEDs that work well: For more detailed information, refer to the specified pages.

I like the Blue Tube better for the studio personally. Purchased on ebay usa, from a vendor that I know. Due to the gentle OverEasy characteristic of your XT you will find that even fairly high ratios are handled transparently.

Applications The dbx XT is capable of handling a wide range of applications. That is, when a phone plug is inserted, the detector input is no longer connected in parallel with the audio input. The master 1 60XT will now respond to the combined inputs of the XTs. Did you find this review helpful? Live As the colors of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the colored markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows: The XT will then begin to release recover from compression before the loud passage has ended.

Patch bay In the studio, the 1 60XT may be connected to a patch bay to allow it to be used anywhere in the studio system. The stereo coupling can be disengaged instantly by a front panel pushbutton. This symbol, wherever it appears, alerts you to the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage inside the enclosure — voltage that may be sufficient to constitute a risk of shock. Not only does it once the settings for both, but it behaves like a “real” stereo: Another option is to install an output trans- former, which will allow grounding of either pin 2 or 3 of the XLR-type out- put see page In hard-knee compression mode, the threshold is defined as that point above which the output level no longer changes on a 1: Assuming the tom-tom is a lower frequency instrument and can be better tolerated by the tape, it has less need for compression.

Never remove the cover. Hard-Knee Compression Curve Figure 3: Note that the XT does not have a power switch. This symbol, wherever it appears, alerts you to important operating and maintenance instructions in the accompanying literature.

Ensure that all terminals are securely tightened and that there are no loose strands of wire. On this terminal, there is a jumper between the compressor inlet and the detection input: Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet.

Make sure you have correctly followed installation steps and operation procedures. I have seen many young producers use this compressor and use it the wrong way. Mounting the unit directly over large heat-producing devices such as a vacuum-tube power amplifier may shorten component life and is not rec- ommended. If, for example, mid-range drivers are frequently damaged, the whole system must be operated at a lower sound-pressure level, or additional mid-range drivers must be added.

This analog limiter is a rack able unit that can also be used as a compressor as well. Be sure to verify both your actual line voltage and the volt- age for which your Model XT was wired, as indicated on the rear panel of your unit.

For cuts of pork, we can push beyond the ratio of the infinite! There are other very real compressors, much more expensive as the or the dbxLA2A Our members also liked: Finally, we can give a little gain with the last pot.
