Quad Compressor / Limiter
In today’s recording and sound reinforcement environments, the need for multiple channels of high quality, easy to use compression is growing rapidly. The new dbx’ 1046 is designed to provide the audio professional with just that: 4 channels of great sounding dbx compression for a variety of applications. Incorporating the industry standard dbx designs and the latest available manufacturing techniques, the dbx 1046 provides pristine sonic quality with that classic dbx sound.
The 1046 provides 4 channels of smooth classic dbx OverEasy’ or Hard Knee compression that are perfectly suited for use on individual tracks of your multitrack recorder, and in virtually all applications the separate channels can be individually interfaced and used for entirely independent purposes. Additionally the newly developed PeakStopPlus“ is ideal for protecting your system from the oppressive peaks that can take out valuable drivers in your sound reinforcement rig or studio monitors.
All four channels have the following controls:
4 independent channels of operation, stereo linkable in two pairs.
PeakStopPlus limiting control for setting maximum allowable level regardless of compressor settings.
Switchable OverEasy or hard-knee compression.
Selectable Auto (classic dbx) or manual (variable Attack and Release) compression.
Differentially balanced gold-plated XLR and 1/4″ inputs and outputs.
True RMS level detection.
Precision metering of input level, output level, and gain reduction.
Dual True stereo or quad mono operation.
Switchable 4dBu or -10dBV operation per channel.
