Aphex 720 Dominator II
The Aphex System Dominator 2 AX 720 is a multi-band peak limiter. It isn't your traditional limiter for starters. It has XLR connections in the back, and will only take up a single space in a traditional rack case.

UTILIZATION

While the Aphex System Dominator 2 AX 720 doesn't have the most often found parameters, it is still a pretty easy unit to use. As far as your parameters do go, you've got knobs for input gain, low and high EQ, release, density, fine, and coarse. It also has a number of buttons and a meter so you can monitor your peaks. I haven't seen a manual for this device, so I can't say anything about the type of make up that it might have and if it would be useful or not.

SOUND QUALITY

I don't have all that much experience with the Aphex System Dominator 2 AX 720, mostly because after using it once or twice I decided that it was something that I didn't really like the sound of. While it does do the job and will help for limiting your peaks, I found that it hit the signal way too hard for my taste. While you can of course set the unit in a variety of ways, even when I had it on a low level of limiting, I still felt that I couldn't get the sound that I wanted from it. I used it on a full drum set, so perhaps it is best suited for another application that I didn't try...

OVERALL OPINION

The Aphex System Dominator 2 AX 720 is definitely a good idea, which is why I tried it out, but I'm just not a big fan of the execution. It doesn't sound as punchy or clean as I would expect from a unit like this. I don't know the price of the Domniator 2, but unless you're looking specifically for a multi-band peak limiter, I'd steer clear of this and check out some more traditional signal processing.

The effect of the Aphex Dominator 2 is quite characteristic, bass, bells loud and clear, strong sound prsence sometimes lgrement mtallique or slightly AGESSA.
The multiband processing (3 bands) is free pumping sound quality high-end, the output gain is very well calibrated and prcis, a clipper possde final internal high quality can be very dense depending on the setting.
Clearly audible sound effect, ideal for applications "commercial", no breath, which probably explains the lack of gate.

OVERALL OPINION
