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.
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.
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.

houseboy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" efficient and Cheap"
very complete and very simple. yet he must know how to set a compressor, which requires some experience
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.
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.

blackle's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Limiter / Compressor
expander / gate
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 ..
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 ..
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).
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!

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

cotto's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
1U XLR or jack + 6.35 in return send jack processor in order to have treatment supplmentaire (not bad)
Config simple and effective enough to what to do
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
, And the compressor quite satisfactory
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

igdidier's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
doc trs use and complete technical and french more
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
To compress a bass is nikel, a fine tune to not fall into sounds too metallic
qq requires hours of listening to refine
Once found the right set
gives a good potato and eliminates small game defaults

uservinc's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Simple. Bar graph useful. Buttons notched apprciables trs.
The sound quality is more or less subjective and is the apprciate each (he sounds as you got?)
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.

Oliviercool's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Expender / gate
Compressor / Limiter
Simulating the circuit with his "lights" feature "Interactive Knee", SO Contour, rglage Auto attack time and release of the Tagus compressor activated, rglage line level -10 / +4 dB and possibility to link both channels for the second pilot or by the same potentiomtres the first channel (some are rglagent-even when individually).
For each of the possible Rglages two channels:
Stage Expander / Gate:
Trigger (Off + 10dB)
Relchement short or long
Mode "Expander" or "Gate"
Stage Compressor / Limiter:
Rglage threshold application (-40 to + 20 dB)
Compression ratio (from 1 / 1 infinite, in this case: limiter)
Attack time (0.3 ms 300)
Relchement time (0.05 s 5)
Set automatic or not these two rglages
The output level will affect the following Tage
Getting on or off duty depending on the Trat dynamics in a external audio signal (string latrale)
Inject it or not the audio outputs
Activation or not the high-pass filter in the chain latrale
Key "Interactive Knee"
Activation or not of the enhancer
Activation or not the lamp circuit emulator circtuit
Slction display of VU meters (the level of display or output)
On / off the Tagus compressor / limiter.
Application level (0 10 dB)
Removing sibilance of male voices or fminines
On / off of the floor (which also only works if the compressor is activated.
Floor peak limiter:
Rglage threshold application (0 dB + 15 dB, beyond = OFF)
LEDs and LEDs:
Stage Expander / Gate:
LEDs indicate if the input signal is below or above the threshold for
Indicator of long relaxation and implementation based on the noise gate in place of the expander
Stage Compressor - Limiter:
LEDs indicate the application of rduction signal (from - 1 to 30 dB)
VU level of nitre or output (-30 + 18 dB)
Indicator for monitoring the chain latrale
Indicator of the commissioning of the string latrale
"Lo Contour" (the high pass applied to the string latrale)
Indicator turning on the attention of the Interactive Knee
Indicator of the commissioning of the automatic rglage attack time and relchement
Indicator of switching on the emulator of circtuit lamps
Indicator of activation of the Enhancer
Indicator of the state of nitre-LED signal level (input or output)
Indicator On / Off the Tagus.
Indicator of the introduction of the female and male version of desseur
Indicator of the rduction treble (-12 -3 dB)
Indicator for power on / off of the Tagus.
Floor peak limiter:
LED that illuminates when the signal threshold Exceeds fix (and when attnu)
Connectors, a pair of:
XLR line input
Jack 6.3 mm symtrique of line
XLR line out
Jack symtrique 6.3 mm line out
Jack 6.3 mm assymtrique sending the string to latrale
Jack 6.3 mm assymtrique back from the string latrale
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's not appropriate to use trs gear such as this dtruit the original musical of the song. But against, there'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.
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.
I have just the reevoir.
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'm bluffing ))
Cheap one point that this applies even bother to get it used, especially when you live in Switzerland ))
Potentiomtres notched, as usual at Behr ^ ^
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.

Heesh's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
General configuration quite simple.
Manuel too fast, too empty, the weak point.
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.
I use it for 1 month.
Rack of very good quality at very low prices.
Excellent quality / price ratio!
