According to the titles I have to mix, they serve me on any style of source vocals, bass drums, guitars, bass, synths, organ, Everything has been said, it’s a great machine. Pre-emphasis for broadcast applications By inserting a pre-emphasis filter network in the detector path of a XT processing pre-emphasized dbd, higher levels can be run within the headroom limitations of the broadcast chain.

The converse of 160s above EQ technique may be used: The manual will only help you if you know compression and how much to use or not to use.


Using this unit you wont be able just to click on different limiting presets and compression presets. This gain reduction would cause the perceived image of any sound spread between the two channels to move 160s the side which had not been compressed, because the spread signal would be momen- tarily softer in the compressed channel.

He mixed all of his guitars in a stereo bus dedicated to this pair of compressors. There are other hardware compressors that attract me much, but they are so much more expensive This X has no color, it gets bigger, it wakes up the details buried in his home, but added nothing.

For a stereo system, bdx can separately stereo couple the two high band crossovers, low band crossovers, etc. Mixing Board If you wish to compress a particular track of a multi-track recording or one channel of a live performance mix, the 1 60XT output can be directly 16×0 nected to janual line input jack balanced or notor wired to an Insert mnaual. Value for money monstrous opportunity between and Euros The output gain is monstrous: In hard-knee compression mode, the threshold is defined as that point above which the output level no longer changes on a 1: Such sources can be balanced or unbalanced — this is no problem for the 1 60XT.


Then there is simple and too bad if it was already said elsewhere, is transparency! In the studio, the 1 60XT can be used on everything from vocals to percussion.

Over a button-easy for a more gradual compression, and a bypass, a truth, which directly connects the input jack to output jack. For vocals, even at a mere 2: Not satisfied with those reviews?

Dbx 160X Instruction Manual

Applications The dbx XT is capable of handling a wide range of applications. Manufactured under one or more of the following U. This symbol, wherever it appears, alerts you to important operating and maintenance instructions in the accompanying literature. For more specific installation information, refer to Installation Considera- tions, page Please fill in the Registration Card, detach it from the Warranty Certifi- cate, and send the card to us today.

An unbalanced line is generally a single-conductor shielded cable with the center conductor carrying the signal and the shield at ground potential.

On this terminal, there is a jumper between the compressor inlet and amnual detection input: I just purchase in the euros. If multi-way loudspeakers with low-level electronic crossovers are used, the XT s should go after the crossover s. 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.

There are two versions X: Please refer to the 16x of your Limited Two-Year Standard Warranty, which extends to the first end-user.

It then has a buttons for bypass and to change the display of the metering. Side-chain applications Frequency-weighted compression It is possible to separate certain vocals and instruments from a mix by fre- quency-weighted compression. As a general rule, the compressors should be as close to the amplifiers as possible in the signal chain.

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. 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 unit is a high quality piece of gear and should not be over looked especially if you need a great limiter.


Do not ground Pin 2 or 3 of the XLR-type output connector distortion can result. Those fre- quencies passed by the filter are subject to compression or at least they are subject to considerably more compression than those frequencies out- side the passband. While this isn’t the best sounding compressor out there, it is very solid and works great for drums.

The metering is smartly made and the bright LEDs help you to see exactly where you level is at. If two independent compressors are used to process the stereo program, a dhx sound occurring in one channel will cause a gain reduction only in that channel.

In the latter case, the signals will most likely be unbalanced. For the price it is a bit high for my liking and I would not get this unit for the studio but that is my opinion and I am sure that there are many studios that use them in-house for vocals and other instruments but for me it is way to compressed sounding even on a light ratio and with not much input gain it can be heard. When compressing a stereo program with a pair of XTs, the factors manuaal a compression curve and the actual compression ratio and threshold settings, are like those previously covered with reference to single channels of program material.

Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. 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.

Know the serial number of your unit — this is printed on a sticker attached to the rear panel. It has XLR connections in the back and is rackable – it will take up a single rack space. Note that the XT does not have a power switch. Mark the package with the name of the shipper, and with these words in red:
