dbx DBX1066V overview

  • 1Description

Based on a new VCA, the 1066, a dual mono/stereo compressor/limiter with gate, carries both the classic dbx response, in addition to full manual control over the attack and release characteristics. Frequency dependent gain control is easy to set up and execute with the side chain, and the Side Chain Monitor button helps with setting up the required EQ.

The contour switch allows entire mixes to be easily smoothed with soft compression, while keeping low frequencies from punching holes in the overall mix. Selectable input and output metering provides information to help match equipment level-wise, maximizing signal-to-noise ratio. For overall speaker protection, PeakStopPlus represses unwanted transients that could blow drivers, while minimizing the distortion common to many other hard-limiters. Selectable Hard-Knee or OverEasy characteristics make the 1066 ideal for gain control needs, whether for "heavy" almost-special-effects compression or soft, smooth gain leveling.

In the studio, broadcast facility, or on the road with a P.A. system, the 1066 is designed for simple operation. It allows the user to eliminate unwanted signals, control overall signal gain, and guard the overall mix in dual mono or stereo operations.

Stereo or dual mono operation of gating, compression and peak limiting
Easy operation to smooth uneven levels, add sustain to guitars, fatten drums, tighten up mixes or protect speakers
Selectable auto (classic dbx) or manual compression
Selectable OverEasy or Hard Knee compression modes
Contour switch removes unwanted low frequency information from detector circuit
Limiting for setting maximum allowable level with minimal distortion
Side chain with monitoring for setting up external devices for gating function
Separate precision LED displays for gain reduction, compression threshold and gate threshold allow quick, accurate setup
True differentially balanced gold-plated XLR and 1/4" inputs and outputs

    dbx DBX1066V reviews

    1066 - Dual Mono/Stereo Compressor/Limiter/Gate is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd buy again I've used several other dbx compressors for years and when I needed a new one to add punch and clarity in a live-sound application, this was perfect.
