Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600
The Behringer COMPOSER PRO-XL MDX2600 total dynamic control. It has a compressor—plus a voice-adaptive de-esser, a new dynamic enhancer, authentic tube emulation and more. This compressor can give you control over your mixes, mastering, or recording. It has IRC (Interactive Ratio Control) expander/gate circuitry for inaudible noise suppression. Switchable tube simulation for the warmth classic tube. You can automatically or manually adjustable attack and release times. This uses digital tech, and simulates tubes. Interactive reference-class 2-channel expander/gate/compressor/ peak limiter with integrated de-esser, dynamic enhancer, tube simulation, and low contour filter. I don't think is can be plugged into the PC or Mac. You can input your acoustic/electric guitar, bass, drums and vocals into this machine. I think it works the best on the vocals. Easy to use and follow. Just plug in and sing with the gate and limiter set. It has two main channels with XLR and quarter inch inputs and outputs. The attack time and release time can be set on automatic or manual by 0.3mSec to 300mSec and 0.05S to 5S.

UTILIZATION

I think the compression is the hardest part of the effects. I know the basics on how to use it, looked at the manual and it's still a little unclear. You dealing with frequencies and that sometimes are hard to follow. Main frequency 0.35Hz to 200kHz, +0/-3dB. The limiter and gate are easy to use. You just play around with the device until you get what you want. You want some response time in your vocals but enough to cut off after your phrase. I recorded one of my CD's with this and it works very good. It helps a lot in the feeling and style of the recorded audio. Gives you that commercial cut-off sound.

SOUND QUALITY

It's realistic enough. You could use in live venues for sure. You always see tons of rack crates with gear in it at shows and let me tell you, they are heavy. Forget trying to pick one up. They must have rollers on the bottom, but the sound in this unit comes out clear and clean. You always have to adjust the EQ of the instrument or vocals in your recording software. Good sound for a low priced item. Meets commercial recording quality.

OVERALL OPINION

I've owned mine for 1 year now. It's fitted in the rack road case I purchased. I use one or two general settings to get the right sound. There is always a few tweaks here and there. I've never tried any other models besides this one, I would think that they all pretty much do the same things. $109.. good price and good quality. It is a lower model but puts out a decent sound. I would buy another compressor for every instrument. It's a must have. This unit is made well. All steel. This item you can tell is put out quick but it does not seem to make a difference.

Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600
compressor with sidechain rack (I used to make house / electro to "sidechainer" instrumental parts of the song.

UTILIZATION

very complete and very simple. yet he must know how to set a compressor, which requires some experience

SOUND QUALITY

for the live electro based mpc and synths, I send all beats and vocal samples on a bus from the console, which passes through the compressor and the sidechainé kick. this is a bit basic but it allows for potato live. I have a 2nd to compress the overall mix. and it does its job.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for several years. I have tried other low-end models (alesis, AudioPhony) and plenty of vst, LA2A emulation and other CL1B .. at this price, all we can ask what is a comp that works quite accurately, which keeps the potatoes without browning ... passqu'on can not expect a color type CL1B for 100 €, but rather an effect "fm radio" .. the behringer suits me perfectly for sidechainer or compress a mix.

It is neutral and is suitable for the compression of sound. for voice recording, choose a model tube.

Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600
The MDX 2600 XL offers different treatment in the same rack as follows:
Limiter / Compressor
expander / gate
Peak limit
de-esser
The inputs and outputs are on XLR or jack, it also offers an entrance and an exit for the side-chain (for each channel).
It also provides a circuit for simulating a sound "tube". In fact it is just a little digging in the upper midrange EQ to get a more "sweet". The effect is to forget as it distorts the signal ..

UTILIZATION

use is relatively simple for those who are accustomed to handling this kind of device .. One can only regret the choice made by using potentiometers Berhinger notched prohibiting any fine tuning is done ..

SOUND QUALITY

This is where it gets complicated .. In use compressor not much to say, given the price offered by Berhinger compression is pretty good if you do not exceed a ratio of 3 / 1 and / or a compression ratio of 3 / 4 dB if the Shadocks are not far ..
The peak is very limited way to stay cool (the Shadocks return for revenge).
The expander / gate is cons of good quality, but does not claim, however, to replace a true dedicated expander.
De-esser is to forget as it hurts his work, and approximate compression for all frankly unusable! Prefer him a BSS DPR 402 certe much more expensive but no action level as "de-essing" (and compression as well).

OVERALL OPINION

Purchased a few years ago for some menial, I do not regret my purchase. But do not ask him what he can not do, it obviously can not compete with a DBX 160A for compression or pure BSS DPR 402 but the price is not the same do not forget it!
To summarize the compressor does not break the bank (its main asset), but as soon as possible go to the higher speed!

sinclar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not bad!"

Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600
Even if I'm not dupe products behringer, I find that this unit works well! The build quality is exemplary for the price, the settings are complete, the connector also ...


UTILIZATION

The usage is very clear, the unit is very ergonomic, well, it's a limiter / compressor which, nothing extraordinary, they all look like!

SOUND QUALITY

The snobbery of some of them from being objective and I who have old dpr 402 bss, I am often amused to be lacking some of my friends who swore by the poor sound quality of this compressor behringer wrongly and badly taught them about how they see things! Outside of electronics, is the onscreen user settings and choose who he will make a difference for a particular application.

Personally, for the use I make known to the speeches stirred at parties weddings or other device that makes me a great service to provide a clean, well-packed lined with large "silent" thanks to its gate which saves me a lot of feedback!


OVERALL OPINION

It's not tech or manley tube, but in terms of price and quality manufacturing, linked to an appropriate use for this device, there's no picture I found!

Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600
Compressor / limiter / gate / de-esser
1U XLR or jack + 6.35 in return send jack processor in order to have treatment supplmentaire (not bad)

UTILIZATION

Config simple and effective enough to what to do

SOUND QUALITY

This is a compressor before it's all what I asked so no problems but I do have a prference for ALESIS 3630
if no parasites in quality cabling.
I rather like:
-Function tube that adds a little heat as the tube circuit as say
-Limiter very practical
-The ehancer
, And the compressor quite satisfactory

OVERALL OPINION

I will not get into the dbat BEHRINGER I am satisfied with the product it does what I expected from him as for me everything is okay.
A default in the manufacturer: the spacing of the knobs and the fragility of those it

Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600
See description above
doc trs use and complete technical and french more

UTILIZATION

I use it as bassist with the config: B200r Ampeg combo amp and passive Jazzbass 75
must look for it we want to lower the compressor section is interesting

SOUND QUALITY

To compress a bass is nikel, a fine tune to not fall into sounds too metallic
qq requires hours of listening to refine

OVERALL OPINION

Super telling,
Once found the right set
gives a good potato and eliminates small game defaults

Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600
Well, little notice purely personal, but above all to put some music in this view (useful because a compressor to play video games, I find out about, but hey ........ ..) so voila, behringer return with the youngest (who has 3 or 4 years for that matter, but I've found 60 euros later I'm not .....) gn behringer feedback is critical devices but with a smaller component cot, and is cheaper to pay the bill .. Ben and I say children, even if some few people can afford to buy tables and swallow 3000.00 euros, I'm sure in their small home studio, despite these BCAN, the finished product certainly sound better, but will always be that model, it will be necessary to review with the pros, the real, to finalize everything, and even I'm on, take everything ZrO. So, when you have not too many ways, and that we want to make nice models, without any prtention, starting with the behringer, to be released by a major cole sound, but really believe that this kind of guy will choose the behringer !!!!!!! for the compressor in it even, it's his job properly, a lot of option, I think that the tube function is a little weak, and according to Esser, really wheezing, but a very low level, the rest is his job properly and clean 60 euros used, certainly I would do this choice, then the pros sound DSOL for my query, but s'agirrait to play with the same weapons, it do not fight with a knife against a gun (mtaphore rotten that will delight fans of gangters ------- shriff there is a new town, I ........

Gather information about the manufacturer's website.

UTILIZATION

Simple. Bar graph useful. Buttons notched apprciables trs.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality is more or less subjective and is the apprciate each (he sounds as you got?)

OVERALL OPINION

It's been three and a half years I use it. I 'Inserra between prampli, connect to the PC and the mixer. I used rguler volume PC when I play video games or when I watch a DVD. It fulfills its rle, cash many levels, and provides a good output. The device is filled with buttons and switches that I used frquemment. Yet they still work: without grsillement or failure (mcanique and electronic). This is almost a miracle.

</ul>

UTILIZATION

I am to see so many tonn rglages possible, as many lights and LEDs in a space as Reduces (only 1U in height with 19 inches wide are shared between the two channels!) .

Easy, no need manual to operate it, but it is still the same advice to STUDY to learn the intricacies MODEL own this one.

As usual with Behringer, the rotary potentiomtres are notched. The inconveinient is that it is impossible to make with rglages purposes but the advantage is that with the habit, it can quickly and easily find rglages that were selected.

Well, for electronic and classical music, it&#39;s not appropriate to use trs gear such as this dtruit the original musical of the song. But against, there&#39;s nothing for the CONTRL "sound mood" or hard rock bands, especially scne as it is-even when the amps and mnager ensceintes, especially the facade, while retaining a maximum of music. This is especially Designed to be insert into branch on the master section of the table to mix contrller what sends it to the amps and speakers.

The Tagus Expander / Gate can fight effectively against noise indsirables due to compression and also helps fight against feedback.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality is correct trs rglages provided that are well made because they spend practically the only cock ^ ^ The music is fast dtruite sitt a map of R COMIS adjuster.

OVERALL OPINION

I have just the reevoir.

Advantages:
<ul>

Rglage automatic attack and relchement section compressor / limiter activated

Chanage latral possible (Tagus contrllable compressor by an external signal)

Trs visible LEDs and LEDs

Many rglages and lights in a space as Reduces: I&#39;m bluffing :-) ))

Cheap one point that this applies even bother to get it used, especially when you live in Switzerland :-) ))

</ul>
The inconveinients:
<ul>

Potentiomtres notched, as usual at Behr ^ ^

</ul>
Well, I have not tried other (except for the Joemeek VC3Q but it is not the same cathgorie) because the o live, music stores have little trs stocks, I have to order it. Perfect for mnager amps and speakers of power.

Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600
Compressor / Limiter / Expander / Gate / Goddess / Peak Limiter.
What features!
Analog compressor.

UTILIZATION

General configuration quite simple.
Manuel too fast, too empty, the weak point.

SOUND QUALITY

For me, it gives a great report, its a super transparent and non-poor according to the Anti Behringer.
We just have to settle his thing well and it rolls.
Brief but good.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 month.

Rack of very good quality at very low prices.

Excellent quality / price ratio!
