TC Electronic DBMAX
Rack with all digital from analog, S / PDIF, AES / EBU, world clock etc. ... twelve o'clock

The general principle is that of the Wizard Finalizer broadcast standards, but it work the dynamics of 1 5 bands of frequencies. It allows three inserts multiband treatment before treatment (against one of the Finalizer) and adds a few more tools inserts.

It also has a double soft-clip and a limit that intervienent multiband after treatment. The floor limit / soft-clip function mode radio emission (pre-emphasis) or studio.


It lergonomie TC electronic and must recognize that they know about it. I find it easier in the end that many soft.
The manual is effective but is not enough in the details for each tool.

Compare a Finalizer, Finalizer I would say that is more instinctive, the DBmax is much sharper and finally. For the size of its Finalizer is a longer length.

There is no automatic gain compensation on the last day and put it no worse.

It allows the use of 1 5-band treatment.


I had a Finalizer Wizard I found it great but the vraimen the top. This unit can go all what the Finalize all but allows much further. I do not like too much equalizer which is also very effective but I prfer the analog. The machine is flexible and efficient redoutablemen it allows ratraper big mistakes or problems of mix. Practice to correct a power live. I also used sound, it works not bad either.

Can be treated naturally or make a mix carrmen aggressive or ramolire completemen depending on the type of adjustment.


Atention, like all the dynamics processing multi-band, you gotta go molot departing because it is quick to make big mistakes but for a beginner, no problem, there is the Wizard feature simplifies and the machine is already loaded with preset answer for all situations.

I have a few years and I would do this choice without problems because the machine is sound quality xptionel and goes much further than many competitive landscape. More thinner than a Finalizer with settings much more pointed and many of the shots is not easy to ateindre the size of its grain and a Finalizer (but there is a 3 band preset Finalizer can s' approach it rather quickly on the other hand, it was not preset the Finalizer).

Compared to MasterX5, I compared, same settings, I hear no diffrence, the TRS is good for MasterX5 against the MasterX5 does not access all the settings and has much less possibilities which can be quite annoying when you have to act on very specific parameters of the sound but I think that in order to sell other Powercore plugs.

I use it for 4 years.

The + and is easily taken in my studio or rack for my Batteries appliances.
It sounds all the time, it is reliable, lightweight, small, pro quality audio, capable of violence rare on batteries ... like absolute discretion ...
