DBX 166XL - Used

This DBX 166XL is a dual compressor/limiter/gate. Most compressor/gates provide less than musical compression, coupled with gating that swallows transients—or closes early, cutting off decay and reverb tails. The superb engineering in the 166XL ensures that both its compression and gating provide versatility and excellent sonic performance in situations where other compressor/gates typically produce undesirable processing artefacts.

When using the 166XL’s Attack and Release controls, artists and engineers will find that the centre settings deliver classic DBX compression, while the full control range produces voicings that extend from slow “levelling” to aggressive “peak” limiting. The 166XL’s advanced gate circuitry uses a completely new, program-dependent timing algorithm to produce ultra-smooth release characteristics—even with complex signals, such as voice or reverb decays. DBX engineers went on to take advantage of the wide dynamic range and high precision of the DBX V1 VCA to design in an extra-wide threshold range and ensure top gating performance for each application.
