To describe the somewhat “universal Swiss Army knife” of the craft 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 This will suppress the program material pre- ceding this loud passage.

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, unless you spend a ton of money on a limiter and sbx plug in and in that case the dbx x would be cheaper to go with because it is not expensive at all anymore.

Please refer to the terms of your Limited Two-Year Standard Warranty, which extends to the first end-user. Compression lessens the loudness variations among the strings and increases the sustain.

The equalization in the de- tector circuit means that the compressor is not triggered as readily by a loud tom-tom beat as by an equally loud cymbal crash. When you need it, it triggers the button “slave” on one of two compressors, and it made all the settings on the other. This unit is a high quality piece of gear and should not be over looked especially if you need a great limiter.

It compresses as you want cbx a lot! However, gentle tapping of a drumstick or brushing of the cymbal will not be held back.

If you are still unable to dbd a problem, contact our Customer Service Department for consultation. Other instruments, such as horns, vary in loudness depending on the note being played, and manula similarly. We suggest saving the shipping carton and packing materials for safely transporting the unit in the future.


It is true that we hear a clear improvement when going through something. It was a “big sound”, but not bold or aggressive, just the guitars were much more present, all the time, no color, no further aggression Check the line voltage.

Do not short either pin 2 or pin 3 to ground. In other words, the output level is mnual when the input signal is above thresh- old. This X has no color, it gets bigger, it wakes up the details buried in his home, but added nothing.

It is also possible to separate cer- tain vocals or instruments from a mono program already mixed by fre- quency-weighted compression see page I just purchase in the euros. Program-dependent attack and release times assure natural sound without the need for con- tinuous manual adjustments. A super mono compressor, stupid: Patch bay In the studio, the 1 60XT may be connected to a patch bay majual allow mnual to be used anywhere in the studio system.

Microphones and bass guitars, like guitars, typically have low-level out- puts. In hard-knee compression mode, the thres- hold is defined as that point above which the out- put level no longer changes on a 1: What I like least: The XT can be used with either balanced or unbalanced sources and outputs can be used with either balanced or unbalanced loads, provided you use proper cabling. Finally, we can give a little gain with the last pot. We chose a ratio, and adjust the Threshold watching small LEDs that work well: If you like colored amnual this unit will suffice but if your not use to compression this will be over your head.


If you have cbx it will be confusing. Our phone number is listed on the inside of the front cover. On bass and percussion. And then pump it damn, if that’s what we’re looking This gain reduction would cause the perceived image of any sound spread between the two channels to move toward the side which had not been compressed, because the spread signal would be momen- tarily softer in the compressed channel.

If you do not plan to use the XT for an extended period of time, unplug it.

Using your EQ to reduce feedback in live settings. I tried it on bass guitar a few times and it is really a great unit for 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.

Preventing tape saturation With programs of widely varying levels, compression can prevent record- ing levels from saturating tape tracks see Frequency-weighted compres- sion, page Be pre- pared to accurately describe the problem.

We have added a few new features to the dbx Model XT while main- taining the performance and ease of operation of its predecessor, the dbx X. Of course, when compression does occur, the level of the entire program is affected. 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.

Insure the package properly. Customer Service The Schematic for the XT boards and power supply are provided on the inside back cover.
