I bought almost all versions of Multicom compressor gradually emerged as the Behringer. I am the 3rd generations.

Usage: compress four sound channels in diffrent live. Gnralement vote.

Multicom Advantage: trs great compactness 4 compressors in a single unit high.

Each Next-Generation has brought new features while keeping the same format. Each time a new potentiomtre and one or more keys appeared. Now I do not see any new feature Behringer can make the next time the device was so advanced and t the front is full.

I résumé:

1. Gate / expandeurRglable in line (1 knob) and two positions for speed (switch) + 1 green (pass) / red (ferm. Simple and effective: the microphone of the snaps that do prsentateur when it comes in and closes automatically when s'arrte talking. Opening time instant phasing and silent.
It's simple, effective and sufficient.

2. Compressor with adjustable threshold, the percentage of compression and output level. I use the key that systmatiqueent Reduces the bass sound in the control circuit. Compression is more natural.
I also use the button that goes back systmatiquement the acute high compression ratio, which can compress quite strongly effects without teachers.
The time of action are well rgls gnral for use. The effects of compression nfastes disagree as long as one does not compress too much (6 10 dB). Above, the sound is fine but lacks a bit of momentum I got.
I also use the button systmatiquement KNEE makes the compression more progressive.

3. Instantaneous peak limiter. The only command available is the threshold dclenchement. Simple and effective. 1 LED indicates operation.

Each compressor is equipped with two bars VU meters LEDs, one for levels (switchable pre / APRS compression) and one red for the compression ratio. This bar has its dernire Premire LED that lights up for 1 dB compression (insensitive), the next to 2 dB, then the cart increases. Thus, although we DTECT The beginning of the compression and the dose is very precision.

UTILIZATION

I often amateur artists who are not trs wise in the use of micro. It follows the peaks and troughs of dynamics for some who are close or too s'loignent the microphone. Other rgler do not know the level of their voices and whisper tantt tantt shout.

I therefore use the quad compressor to compress the voice least four of my wisdom mix.

It happens as often to compress the live recording and in this case with two compressors are key synchroniss Stro, while two other compressors limit remaining two votes less wise.

SOUND QUALITY

While there are compressor-limiter-gate more complete in terms of the hard dclenchement, retention and release, but they possdent that two compressors per unit height and are 2 see more bulky.

In addition, the harsh chosen by Behringer and automation make the operation completely transparent, which is not the case for all devices o rgler can not empty well and rgler ncessitent who edits throughout the show. The automatic is a good thing.

OVERALL OPINION

I kept the two compressors Previous versions, which would allow me to compress 12 channels of console if ncessaire.

But the last assurment MODEL is much more powerful than its prdcesseurs and finally trs not complicated to use: once you have configured the buttons and it has been r gl there are not many other actions to do except adjust the compression threshold depending on the level desired.

As against the manual is enough for those who pnible beginners with the MODEL: it covers all the range of compressors and Behringer Describes many functions that are not Submitted on this unit.
For me who was lucky enough to have read the manual versions antrieures dcrivaient that only the product sold, I did not need much explanation to use this new version amliore .
