    I mainly put the bass on it, taking then to mix with rglage diffrent each time.
    It's true we hear a clear improvement when going through something. I think other resume thereafter, because it does not cost too much to chance.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The compression effect is very good "calibrated" I'll try to pass bass drums and snare to see what happens but I'm pretty confident in the result <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

    The two bass players who were able to use the studio were both delighted, one playing the rock "vintage" and the other from Hard, and each with a diffrent rglage have been possible their own sound ...

    **** EDIT **** OF 28/12/2009
    After having played well in the mix with my compressors, it seems that this one gives a nice color on the bottom when it comes strong in it. The resulting sound is pretty good detaches from the Bass Drum (which it even happens in a 1176 bus via the table), and that's exactly what I was looking ... on the other hand, seeking a color Particular re for my compressors, I do not think taking another dbx160 for guitars or keyboards, but possibly for toms, why not <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for little, but Fawn systematic dsormais. Moreover it has no on / off switch, thus prompting the use ds that the whole system is powered <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

    One of my friends told me that the faade ings people "known" (Veronicas among others) used it on each slice of the table, but also on each output from their table !!!! To dcrire the somewhat "universal swiss army knife" of the craft ...

    I possde or I possd few compressors: Joemeek VC1qc, TLAudio Fatman 1 & 2, Universal Audio 1176 Summit TLA100 ...

    This one, and a great price, is the Swiss Army knife, systematically used any session, ALWAYS !! And this is not the case for autrezs "big" references ...

    What I like least: the small little less is no On / Off button, but as it would still be "On" .... <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />

    Monstrous price quality ratio occasion (between 200 and 300 Euros ...), do NOT hsiter take one or even more !!

    I would like to buy many more !!

    Compressor transistor size rack (1u)

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use for a compressor, the attack and release settings are factory pre-set which not modifiable.

    on the other hand, it must attack with a transformed impedance (600 ohms) and not the gross impedance low (a few million ohms) to get the best part.

    that means it must be used loop send / return of the amp head is used an impedance transformer (DI or preamp / DI) active.

    SOUND QUALITY

    compression is high quality, very musical compared to compressor pedal size (EBS, Markbass, boss, Maxon, etc.), no coloration.

    There is little use of high compression without the breath of death.

    The soft and hardknee modes allow light cuts or prominent for large differences in dynamic compressions.

    Some magazines, you can read it tends to eat treble for what my use with electric bass, I did not feel (probably also related to the spectrum of the instrument)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I would recommend this product to a basic use of compression, since there are fewer parameters to manage, it is very easy to use (very live), it is also a good ally in the studio.

    Highlight: the meter seen that can visualize the operation and adjust input levels and output correctly.

    A very good compressor

    The manual is clear and offers many possibilities.

    SOUND QUALITY

    What I love about this compressor is that absolutely no one hears it: for the use I make of it is completely transparent, the sound of my bass in spring without damaging the stamp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use the machine for two years, once in my rack, it has more left. I bought after much research, and a little closed eyes, after all the advice I have read on the net. Despite its price a little high, it perfectly fulfills its role and confirms its reputation.
    I think I would do this choice, despite the lack of available settings this compressor does exactly what can be expected of him.

    His only default is the size. A single channel unit has a compression may be little, when you can have four. But this reproach concerning the world of live plutt or space is often counted. As part of a studio, my opinion is a plaything possder absolutely.

    Over Easy, dude!

    SOUND QUALITY

    Bass, guitar, bass drum, snare, ...
    This compressor is a killer! I love it. It is as it is, so sometimes it's wrong, but at least it has character, punch.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used in the mix for a month (the original 160).
    I like its ease: one patch, we listen, we fiddled two knobs and it sounds serious! No decision on cabbage stories techniques ... Well, it's also a bit weak: you can adjust almost nothing.
    Q / p good. When you want the sound, it pays. Over Easy!

    SOUND QUALITY

    Compression is both subtle and effective. This is a compressor which enhances the sound becomes more and prcis Retailer. This may not be adquate for people who need to hear a compression "massive" like me.
    I used it with bass.
    It sounds a hell slap!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Sold a few weeks ago to return to pedals.
    Its strengths is that it's the kind of effects does his job but is meant only when not in use, it is very simple and allows rgler get good sounds quickly, even if it is not Aguri compression.
    The weak point is that the triple compression / attack / release is prdfini, and occupies 1U in a flight case for a single channel compression.
    Essay I had nothing like this before.
    Qualitprix report is correct.
    This is an excellent compressor, geared more ings of sounds that bassists.
    With exprience, I would do not have that choice because I found a compression pedals that better use my current (Carl Martin).

    Compressor single channel analog input signal is either XLR or Jack connector 6.35 mm in both cases symmetric. The output is XLR symmetrical. But it also offers another Jack asymmetric specifically and completely separated from the balanced output. Add to that, an entry called "Detector Input" that allows (even to her) to use a different signal as the input to control the VCA board, and a last connection via 6.35 mm Jack for connecting a second 160 for use in stereo mode.
    As for the possible setting, it offers the bare minimum of what is expected on this type of machine, namely a set threshold levels and output gain. But it compensates with a quality and professional architecture. Added t…

    Compressor single channel analog input signal is either XLR or Jack connector 6.35 mm in both cases symmetric. The output is XLR symmetrical. But it also offers another Jack asymmetric specifically and completely separated from the balanced output. Add to that, an entry called "Detector Input" that allows (even to her) to use a different signal as the input to control the VCA board, and a last connection via 6.35 mm Jack for connecting a second 160 for use in stereo mode.
    As for the possible setting, it offers the bare minimum of what is expected on this type of machine, namely a set threshold levels and output gain. But it compensates with a quality and professional architecture. Added to this a key switching the "Soft Knee", a function with a smoother entry into compression, that's it.

    UTILIZATION

    Simple and rational, more thanks to the two bar graphs large "level" switchable input / output and "gain reduction", the display of the compression performed by the Dbx is a great visual comfort. It should be added that none of the knobs is notched ..

    SOUND QUALITY

    Without particular coloration despite the transformer option I had taken when buying to have a real galvanic isolation, which enters the compressor as is apparent, with only less than dynamic. A lag close to nil and pumping almost inaudible, a compression which takes place without adverse effect on the frequencies ..
    Regardless of the compression ratio and the source is treated as the result will always be optimum and it does not alter Dbx your job, which is a high quality.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It is a real working tool, simple but not simplistic, to do a good job. The sound remains clean until the end. Of course, since it allows no time setting attack and release, do not ask the artistic treatment as with a BSS DPR 402, for example, but it was not designed for it .. Compress without adding anything to it's function.
