The MULTICOM PRO MDX4600 from Behringer provides four channels of Interactive Knee Adaptation (IKA) compression/limiting, housed in a single rack space chassis. A peak limiter on all channels helps prevent clipping of the audio source.

Each compressor features program dependent attack and release times with a switchable side-chain filter to help with bass dominated compression. Channels 1/2 and 3/4 can be switched as independent pairs for stereo operation and accurate metering and professional connections provide extensive processing power.

Program adaptive compression circuitry (IKA) combines the advantages of both hard and soft knee characteristics
Compression characteristics switchable between IKA and hard knee characteristics
Interactive gain control peak limiting circuitry combines clipper and program limiter for reliable and inaudible protection against signal peaks
Switchable high-pass filter in the control signal path prevents "pumping" due to low-frequency dominated compression
Stereo couple function for channels 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 selectable with real totaling RMS output
Accurate 8-segment LED meters for input/output levels and gain reduction

        Podcasting is filled with unexpected highs and lows of sound and noise to say nothing about "heavy breathers and laughter while recording your program. The Behringer is a "must have" for all serious recordings. This device makes you sound better than you are!

                Comments about Behringer MDX4600 MULTICOM PRO-XL 4 Channel Dynamics Unit:

                I produce Internet radio shows and podcasts. Sound quality is essential. I need the "thickness" that professional radion stations have. The MDX4600 gives me this.

                At first I was afraid because everyone was saying how difficult it is to set up. Then I looked at YouTube videos and found resources that walked me through.

                It wasn't difficult to set up, in my opinion. And I've never set something like this up before.

                        I purchased this to remove any hissing background noise before it hits the mixer and works great. Basically anything under the voice sound is filtered out.

                            This piece is a must for podcasters. Although the user manual is somewhat obscure if you're not used to the lingo, it is very useful to know about what compression and limiting can do to enhance the audio quality of any podcast. I use single channels for microphones and skype audio, and run final stereo mix back through two channels before recording. It has improved the quality of my podcast immensely. Again the user manual could have given more thought to the novices out there, but again, good guides to setting it up are only a Google search away.

                                This compressor unit performs its job very well! It has been a life saver in my little church! Two of these units allow me to compress the vocals and guitars, as well as use two channels as limiters for the main signals.

                                The only thing that causes me to give this unit four stars is with its user "friendly-ness". Since this was my first time using a compressor, I would have been thoroughly confused and frustrated without the assistance of professionals who walked me through Compressor 101! If this is your first time using a compressor, ASK FOR HELP from professionals who know!! It'll save you a great deal of headache! Plus, once you've mastered Compressor 101, you will really enjoy and appreciate the functionality and features that are packed in this little unit!
