[AES] New dbx 676 channel strip
The new 676 channel strip that dbx introduces at AES 2014 this week-end includes a tube mic preamplifier.
The dbx 676 is a rackable channel strip featuring a Class A mic preamp with a 12AU7 tube, that can be adjusted for a wide variety of sounds, ranging from clean and clear to dirty with loads of harmonics.
The channel string includes the compressor/limiter from the dbx 162SL, with threshold, attack, gain, release, auto-attack and release controls, soft and hard-knee modes, Auto-Velocity and OverEasy modes as well as a PeakStop limiter algorithm. You’ll also find a 3-band parametric EQ and a multifunction VU-meter.
The dbx 676 offers XLR and 1/4” jack inputs and outputs, a front-panel instrument input and a side chain insert. An expansion card for digital output is available as an option.
The dbx 676 is expected in January, 2015 for the US street price of $999.95. More info at dbxpro.com.
