SlapKid's review (This content has been automatically translated from English) " More than adequate at this price"

I depuis4-five years, no worries. It is an analog device with 16 presets tuned compression differently. We can act on the level of input and output as well as the enhancer on or off. It looks anything but it is infinitely more than any compressor pedal, and eyewitnesses at that.
Stereo, but the two channels have identical settings, handy indeed.
2in-2out 6.3 jacks, 9v power supply provided alternative type as in digitech.
No breath or hum, all good.
Considering the price is 10/10

UTILIZATION

Ingeniously simple, visual, just great ... To adjust a compressor it is imperative an input and a display level, minicom has two, one for compression and applied to the input level or output .
If you have it you're doing every time. I find unacceptable and almost unusable almost all compression pedals on the market, especially in terms of their prices (without power supply which is more).
My main use is on electric guitar, here is the chain: guitar pedal overdrive or distortion without true bypass (so that the signal is at the right impedance required by minicom) - minicom-amp output by L and pedal delay / rev per output R that file on 2nd amp.
This arrangement allows long cables and a main dry signal analog signal with delay / rev parallel.
Not to mention the price is great.

SOUND QUALITY

The presets are customizable and usable, and their name is quite realistic.
The color changes in function and frequencies (non-) affected.
Compared to my pedals compression, I'll spare you the long list, the sound is better or much better here. Except the nova dynamics overpriced.

Home studio I use, always on electric guitar, autocom rack of the brand and there hello difference in sound quality, really three notches above for a still very reasonable price. on the other hand it is clearly not intuitive or easy, but many additional useful options. But beware, no question of entering in after a simple non pedal true bypass, so need a console these two products are not comparable.

OVERALL OPINION

It is a balance in fact, you could possibly want exactly the same version as the hi-end concept is good.

I also tested the output of cd to see, and dedicated presets are effective. It is qualitatively my rfx300 zoom around so already correct.

Here, for local use between guitar and vox ac15 is useful and simple, whatever the type of compression you need. It goes from subtle to punchy through the nashville (chouic skinny etc.), with visual control over the enhancer siouplé.De board does not blow and is more effective than at first glance.
A remake I would do, taking care to study the market for a similar device but higher-end anyway, willing to pay 4-6 times more. But that's just because I'm crazy compressor!

Small compressor simple, economic and versatile presets for those who can not settle a compressor (and should not be easy!)
I / O can be symtriques (Stereo jack 6.35) but also works with strings asymtrique mono.
Potentiomtres the volume and the meter can make a good adaptation of levels very easy. Similarly we can choose between two sensibilitsgnrales - 10 dB + 4 dB. This means that it is necessary to have a prampli upstream to weak signals (microphone, guitar ..)

UTILIZATION

The use is very simple, luckily becaufe the effects obtained are difficult trs evaluate the Difference disagree much testing, does not provide a dramatic but subtle. There is an increased awareness by giving large map of dynamics and with the help of dedicated red meter at the rate of compression applied after the input signal and the preset.
I prcise essay that I have a microphone with voice being the only use that interests me but there are presets for all kinds of instruments and it must be extremely easy to find his prev rent configurations.
At first glance, the enhancer is not working because it meant no diffrence. This is because it is dclenche proportion to the compression ratio and indeed it rcupere trs harmonics but also discreet. It is useful to have an IDE add this accessory uncommon.

SOUND QUALITY

This is the second time in my life that I try a compressor, the first I did not understand the rglages. I imagine that it takes a lot of exprience and ear rgler a pro camera. The COM800 facilitates the task of nophite with presets that after all vitent got big mistakes or handling hazardous.
So for our use with a microphone singing, added flexibility in voice cards, remove the saturation and can raise the level of distortion and without fear of saturating the receiver when the singer gives full voice . In this sense, it brings more comfort to her a touch more "professional". We also found an enjoyable rduction the effect of proximity with the SM58.
The amlioration even if it did not seem spectacular even when significant.
But I rpeter I can not compare with a real compressor pro since I do not know.

OVERALL OPINION

I had it in hand one week, both charged to develop a small sound system for a friend singer / pianist Bar less fortunate. He does not regret this modest acquisition which provides more comfort and vocal sound more lightweight "class". It can push Submitted trs strong voice without appearing "brawling" and saturate the system.
There was just room to put a COM800 but I wish one case even more compact and less toc (trs I find ugly) I think Behringer should have done this in small rectangular boxes SERIES sharp angles , rack them easily with a faade more "pro" and condenses, black can be. The appearance also helps the reputable. Why this is good entry-level market should it appear cheap and poorly ncessairement damn?
You really get the line level because it is not without a little breath if you push the sensitivity of.
We think this is a purchase for economic take his first steps in the discrete compression without making head.

Said.

UTILIZATION

It's simple to use, even if you do not really know what the presets.

SOUND QUALITY

I use it to record vocals offs, and frankly means very fast distortion. I do not know maybe not very well use it, but I have to limit it to a small compression.

OVERALL OPINION

It's cheap, it is perhaps not bad for some instruments, but for the voice, I will continue to go through a compressor software.

Compressor with 16 preset effects. (Voice, percussions, drums, bass drum, bass, electric guitar and acoustic elettric, etc). Voila, a compressor is perfect for null like me, know that not set a compressor, or do not have time. I did small concerts, we arrive, we choose the desired compression, and it's good. No waste of time. I utlise two, one for the bass drum also an e acoustic electric guitar for my Godin. Of course, the purists will say, bah behringer, but I tell you, for 50 euros, it is very very very very good job.
I am a musician profissionel it's been 25 years passione (excuse me, it's very hard for me to write in French), his passion, I've tried almost everything, but behringer amazes me.
I also have a tube preamp Beringer (tube ULTRAGAIN t1953), and one of his embelliseur ULTRAFEX II.
So thank you Behringer.

UTILIZATION

It is very clear, but no need to book. Even my wife can settle it

SOUND QUALITY

But I already said everything. it's something perfect. I Utilize for my godin acoustic electric and bass drum.
