And this is not the case autrezs “big” references The dbx Model X is well suited to a broad range of applications including tape recording, disc mastering, radio and TV production and broadcast, live concert sound reinforcement, mobile and theatrical production. If multi-way loudspeakers with low-level electronic crossovers are used, the XT s should go after the crossover s.

The 1600x 60X offers the user the choice of using the Over Easy curve or a mathematically precise “hard” threshold-at any compression ratio selected. At a setting of I don’t think you would want this for studio applications. This is equivalent to a cable with V 4 ” Mono Phone plugs on both ends.

Power consumption is low. By removing the strapping, the detector input can be separated from the signal input for special pro- cessing applications.

Mixing Board If you wish to compress a particular track mnual a multi-track recording or one channel of a live performance mix, the 1 60XT output can be directly con- nected to a line input jack balanced or notor wired to an Insert point.

Mark the package with the name of the shipper, and with these words in red: This symbol, wherever it appears, alerts you to the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage inside the enclosure — voltage that may be sufficient to constitute a risk of shock.

Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. Finally, we can give a little gain with the last pot. The converse of the above EQ technique may be used: Frequency-Weighted Compression With this arrangement, raising certain frequencies on the equalizer causes them to be suppressed in the audio signal.


Patch bay In the studio, the 1 60XT may be connected to a patch bay to allow it to be used anywhere in the studio system. If the XT is wired into a patchbay, never insert a mono phone plug into the patchbay.

Dbx 160X Instruction Manual

What I like least: This unit is a high quality 10x of gear and should not be over looked especially if you need a great limiter. Other instruments, such as horns, vary in loudness depending on the note being played, and benefit similarly. Plug into mains power.

This analog limiter is a rack able unit that can also be used as a compressor as well. Purchased on ebay usa, from a vendor that I know. When I have tried it in 1160x studio it really does not sound like some of my compressors that cost about the same.

In other words, the output level is constant when the input signal is above thresh- old.

Assuming the tom-tom is a lower frequency instrument and can be better tolerated by the tape, 1160x has less need for compression. If, for example, mid-range drivers are frequently damaged, the whole system must be operated at a lower sound-pressure level, or additional mid-range drivers must be added. Unpack and Inspect the XT package.

Be sure to verify both the actual line voltage and the voltage for which your Model X was wired, as indicated on manua, rear panel of your unit. The system can then be run at higher levels and will only be dropped back when dam- aging signals are present. Then there is simple and too bad if it was already said elsewhere, is transparency!

It has a knob dbs set the threshold, a knob to set the output gain, and a knob for compressor ratio. I also use it on kick or room mics. I own or have owned a few compressors: Value for money monstrous opportunity between and Euros The XT will catch it, and hold it as a constant tone so you can adjust your EQ to minimize it. If you need to return a product to the factory for service, include a letter describing the problem.


Not only does it once the settings for both, but it behaves like a “real” stereo: If you like colored compressor this unit will suffice but if your not use to compression this will be over your head. I like the Blue Tube better for the studio personally.

Do not short either pin 2 or pin 3 to ground. Program-dependent attack and release times assure natural sound without the need for con- tinuous manual adjustments.

If you do not plan to use the XT for an extended period of time, unplug it. Anyway, it’s very simple.

User reviews: dbx X – Audiofanzine

This is a special negative compression effect manusl the program dynamics are inverted above the set threshold i.

We chose a ratio, and adjust the Threshold watching small LEDs that work well: For more specific installation information, refer to Installation Considera- tions, page Each XT is tested, burned in and calibrated at the factory and should require no internal adjustment of any type throughout the life of the unit. I did not have the manual but I found the site DBX see abovethere is also that of the A same thing but easier to read in English only.

This limiter can not be compared to a software limiter because it is just so much better than mznual software limiter to me.
