dbx 166A Professional Dynamics Processor

dbx166A compressor

Manufactured by dbx, Inc., this rackmount device is generally used between the sound modules or the Boss BX-16 16-channel mixer and the Fostex MR-8HD/CD Digital Multitracker Workstation. My primary purpose of this expander/compressor/noise gate is to increase the dynamic range of the music production. It provides two channels, which can be used in stereo mode, as well. This mode lets me use just the first channels controls to tailor both channels to my liking.

I have also used this unit and the dbx 266XL to expand the dynamics of some music that I had recorded onto cassette tapes, some 30 years ago. The MP3's created from this audio processing of the cassette tapes made the music sound great!
