The perfect quality front end for your project studio.

The DBX 1046 Quad Compressor Limiter is designed to provide the audio professional with 4 channels of great sounding dbx compression. Smooth classic dbx OverEasy or hard knee compression perfectly suited for use on individual tracks of your multitrack recorder. Separate channels can be individually interfaced and used for entirely independent purposes. PeakStopPlus protects your system from violent peaks that can KO your P.A. or studio monitors. Each channel features threshold, OverEasy or hard knee compression, ratio, input/output meter, output gain, hard-wire bypass, stereo link combining channels 1&2 and 3&4 for 2 channels of true stereo compression, balanced gold-plated XLR and 1/4" inputs and outputs, and switchable +4dBu or -10dBV operating level.

  • simple set-up and good metering

    As reviewed by Cole on 6/6/2010

    This is a great compressor for the money. I have 2 of them in my rack and have never been disappointed. The biggest benefit is you have 4 channels of compression in only one rack space. Its simple set-up and good metering makes this unit friendly enough for beginners and acceptable for pros. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs 4 channels of quality compression and has limited rack space and budget.
