Show us a pro audio system without compression capabilities, and we'll show you one that isn't finished yet! This category of hardware is seen as must have for any serious sound professional, and there are good reasons for that. Not only does it allow you to tame sounds that may reach out of hand volume without them, but it also helps to protect equipment (and ears) from unexpected noises that could otherwise be powerful enough to cause distortion or even physical damage. That's just a sampling of what they can do, and dbx compressors and limiters are trustworthy devices to handle it after all, it was dbx that developed these technologies in the first place.
The universal starting point in the dbx lineup is the dbx 266xs CompressorGate. You'll see a lot of proprietary terms in its description such as "OverEasy compression technology" and "AutoDynamic attack and release controls" but what all those boil down to is that this unit provides a light touch of automation along with its manual controls, making it easier than ever to craft your signature sound profile. It also delivers accurate visual feedback through its LED displays, so you can watch what this compressor is up to even as you listen to the results.
Maybe you're looking to take your compressor to the next level? All the dbx units in this section rank among the best reviewed and top selling models, but they're not all the same because not every audio system is the same. When your setup calls for the best of the best, be sure to check out flagship units like the dbx 1066 CompressorLimiterGate. This one is loaded to the teeth, with THD performance specs and world class noise levels. On top of that baseline performance, it piles on lots of features including an SC monitor equipped sidechain, contour, true RMS power summing and more.
So whether you're interested in the excellent straightforward performance of an entry level model or all the bells and whistles on the 1066, the bottom line is there's something for everybody in this lineup of dbx compressors and limiters. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that they set the standard for the industry, and that makes each one a welcome addition to any setup.
