Maxidingue's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very pro"

dbx 162SL
Compressor dynamic upscale
2 U Rack
Balanced XLR Connectors


For those familiar with the operation of a compressor just good classic
Parameterization effective and progressive nothing violent
Gently compressed
I find it very transparent, no color marked


Ideally I think t he use master output to give the homogeneity your dynamic
Also does a good job on my Access Virus (I have a C and a rack at) synths pêchus by excellence
I was also pleased with the analog outputs of my MPC drums patterns on TR 808
But in the end it is most often in mastering the main outputs of my soundcard


I've had about 6 months. I think now the master and extract every which has not been easy. We must listen, compare, edit, long before they anticipate change, setting the goal to obtain search
To be honest I've had .... e m before this one (Sanson, behringer)
I decide to switch to the heavy without falling into the high-end pro (Avalon or Manley would have tempted me but financially out of reach)
The DBX 162 is a great value (almost pro) / price

I do not regret my purchase

dbx 162SL
analog stereo compressor
see the feature on the site dbx


use relatively simple and effective
I used on any type of instrument, but principalemeent on kick, snare and bass / lead
(I'm mostly techno, electro, minimal)


He can be heard or go "unnoticed"


Very good compressor that adapts to any style, can be aggressive and gentle, I do not understand it so little appreciated that!
