The Legend Continues

Since its introduction in the mid 1970's, the dbx160 series has been a very popular compressor. Solid construction, foolproof operation, great sound, at-a-glance metering and a bulletproof output stage, all contributed to its popularity with musicians, recording studios, consultants, installers and broadcast media production people.

The 160A from DBX is the latest generation of this family of compressor/limiters. It features switch-selectable Over Easy and Hard Knee compression curves, along with extremely wide-ranging threshold, ratio and output controls. True RMS level detection provides the most natural-sounding dynamics processing available, from subtle compression to "brick wall" peak limiting. The user can choose low ratios and Over Easy compression to transparently smooth out fluctuating vocal and instrumental levels, or use the Hard Knee compression and high ratios for absolute protection against overload distortion in digital recording, P.A. systems and broadcast signals.

The 160A's unique "INFINITY +" inverse-compression mode actually decreases the audio output level below unity gain when the input exceeds threshold, a real lifesaver for correcting overbearing vocal choruses and controlling runaway house mix levels. A detector input can be used with an equalizer for de-essing sibilant vocals and selectively smoothing out boomy notes on acoustic guitar and bass. Two units can be stereo-coupled to process an entire mix or a stereo microphone setup, without shifting the left/right image.
