very good compression, very musical. But rather difficult to connect by inversion hot spot and cold spot on XLR connectors. Provide a soldering iron.

UTILIZATION

Yes, a compressor just like the others, on paper, but very different in practice Rather surprising, remarkable by its musicality.

SOUND QUALITY

oh yes it is effective in many areas, so that it would take several opportunities await you.

The compressor, limiter, peak limiter and de-esser reference 19-inch rack unit. Electronic classic with a lot of capacitors and DBX vca equipped with high quality. Weaknesses: The chemical capacitors must be replaced at least every ten years, leave the road and especially in the well ventilated it will wear less, this applies also to all the electronic stuff, because n not like to put on and off in succession, and finally the knobs very fragile, very expensive and not easy to replace.

UTILIZATION

Orders for compression, limiting and de-essing are very easy and intuitive. The manual is well done, put out the lack of electronic schematic for the sav, if of course you want to troubleshoot yourself. As against the various configurations from the rear terminal block is not easy for non-pro.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects obtained with this machine can be insane as very soft. Useful for radio work to magnify sounds and voices. If you like compression finesse, it's possible but not as much used in this way.

OVERALL OPINION

Certainly this compressor is very poor value for money, because they are too expensive to buy new or even used (beware of second hand ones they're often out of breath, caution, and never buy it from a radio-station : it will certainly seem beautiful, but not in the inside...) But remains the legendary compressor. If you can afford to buy it and maintain it then you need it.

OVERALL OPINION

I obviously can not compare a compressor or any compressor Distressor whose purpose is as compression work on the patch, but a dynamic neutral, it is much more effective than DBX160 or a Drawmer its real asset is his cot round and smooth without being Soft! it's always music and do not go without sending in large dynamic sources trs, trs it will make a great job

Three functions for the processing unit: De-esser, compressor and peak limiter. XLR connectors only. Behind the DPR you have 2 "switches" for adjusting the response of the peak limiter FAST or SLOW and a third "switch" LINK ensuring the coupling of the 2 channels to stabilize the stereo image without phase shifts (negative) if you use it well.

2 sets of twelve screw terminals have the particularity to provide other configurations than those offered directly in front, such as reverse phase, the LF re-emphasis, HF re-emphasis and control of the filter. They also provide access to various sections of the device and used to connect filters in the chain of command of the gain as a...…

2 sets of twelve screw terminals have the particularity to provide other configurations than those offered directly in front, such as reverse phase, the LF re-emphasis, HF re-emphasis and control of the filter. They also provide access to various sections of the device and used to connect filters in the chain of command of the gain as a parametric eq for example. You can also compress the more severe, compressing the presence of severe acute or reverse, order expansion are also possible by reversing the direction of the control voltage applied to the FFA board. You also have, by one of the terminals, the ability to connect several machines together .. But beware, their settings will be identical.
An important thing for the user link, you can also disconnect the controls half of the unit for control by a single channel.



UTILIZATION

This compressor is very simple to use, but for full use of it, he must read the manual (very well done) before use .. This is one of the most complete compressor market ..

SOUND QUALITY

The DPR 402 is still a real gem when subjected to a signal, its effectiveness is remarkable! The sound is always soft and natural. Whatever the compressor settings, compression remains stable, no pumping (except the desire of course).
The de-esser is remarkably efficient, difficult to hang in sound with fine tuning of the de-esser, for my part, I think it's an almost ideal tools in difficult conditions, mainly due to switching wide and LF which provides a rigorous selection of filters de-esser.
For limiting ridge, no problem with BSS, it compresses and limits its own peaks even going to be foamed which deserves to be.

OVERALL OPINION

I will not dwell, I never went out without my DPR 402!
