But + gate limit, all by hand! (Or linckable so if you want to work on a stereo pair)
Very simple, 1U rack mount, with the expected adjustment (sic) for an analog audio compressor
threshold / release to the gate expader
threshold / ratio / attack / relase / output gain compression
PeakStop limit for the ... uh ... limit!
In short, a tool 3 in one, and any time 2 or double mono, with rear jack and XLR connectors
Archi reliable, rot, can cumbersome ... ideal analog insert on tables What especially at this price.
Well, no editing via a computer, it's really cut "for the road", not to prepare patches at home! Super
use, fairly intuitive tools (if you know what it's like a compression!) And with everything close at hand, no menu, nothing, everything at your fingertips ...
But with a manual for beginners with nickel even "proposed" standard setting super efficient and very educational (well explained and well translated monpotes!). It is rare in the records!
And it's stupid, ais looove the little lights that tell you if your 166XL works well (or not) in a glance, you know that it turns, it optimizes your signal, if the "dual mono" or the gate is "in" etc.. Well done and enjoyable performance: you gain time, because if you ask yourself a question of compression, he answer you in visual! Super
effective as fact, but be careful, look no "color" with this ... "Too expensive my son"
For me, it's just vital for those who are working with such a makie onyx or soundcraft spirit or type in short, the first "real" small consoles with 16 votes analog inserts (uh, if they did not cuts added since
to put an insert on a kick and then possibly (depending on caisseux) on the snare and / or the toms (if a group toms caisseux metalheads with 30 barrels, hop, is a slap in 166XL stereo insert on the group of toms! and it is almost the same taf an insert for voice) and there you blessed the gate if you have the microphone proximity everywhere! Anyway, I use rarely gate, matter of taste, I find it not very musical in general, except metal, and yet
I've got two (uh, huh 166XL, remain polite) are 4 cuts, often with
one on the lead,
one on the bass or guitar
one on the kick
and one on the snare ... and it Roulle

I'm using it since uh, forever (!) Type 10 years ... and am still not tired ... are nickel, like new in their everyday racks. Only the transition to a digital table that I use less, but I use it in a home studio in addition to my TL Audio (well, not like it either) but that if I made the taf too many tracks at once.
To my taste this is a must to start cheap in the world of analog devices LIVE without breaking the bank ... made with real!
Avoid especially the so-called "equivalent" or Beringer = Sanson is the mud, their pseudo-treatment side of it! Super
