It is really difficult to decide which one to buy between dbx X and dbx XT, I have done lots of research on the forum: Some people said. 0% Financing, ✅ FREE Shipping, and ✅ FREE Warranty for your dbx X! In the world of compressor/limiters, the X is one of the standard – and with good . Description. The X is probably the best-known of the classic dbx compressors. The original was a half-width 2U box and the X was the first of the.

I only like DBX on bass guitar or snare.

All user reviews for the dbx 160X

It compresses as you want possibly a lot! I don’t have a manual for this so I don’t know if it helpful or not, but the unit is easy enough to use that most shouldn’t need it except maybe during set up or troubleshooting. I will come to an edit if necessary later! Finally, we can give a little gain with the last pot. Nothing will give you great compression and limiting like the dbx x can.

According to the titles I have to mix, they serve me on any style of source vocals, bass drums, guitars, bass, synths, organ, Our members also liked: I have tried this on Live Sound and snare is the most common use for it or in a guitar rig it is great. I also use it on kick or room mics.

For this money I would shop around for a studio compressor. I have seen many young producers use this compressor and use it the wrong way.

The hardest hitting instruments. While this isn’t the best sounding compressor sbx there, it is very solid and works great for drums. Write a user review Ask for a user review. You will have a lot of control over your music but you can do the same with software as well except the software limiters just arent as good, unless you spend a ton of money on a limiter and compression plug in and in that case the dbx x would be cheaper to go with because it is not expensive at all anymore.


And this is not the case autrezs “big” references I do it again this choice without any problems! To describe the somewhat “universal Swiss Army knife” of the craft I tried it on bass dbbx a few times and it is really a great unit for that but that was live and when I used it for vocals live 1600x picks up so much bleed that I had to go back to using it for bass and guitars.

For vocals, even at a mere 2: Not satisfied with those reviews? It is nice to have a few of these at once while you are tracking if you like to track drums with compression. And then pump it damn, if that’s what we’re looking I have never used compressor that level but in terms of transparency, it is sufficient to compare the processed sound and the sound and untreated in terms of compression efficiency, well It is true that we hear a clear improvement when going through something.

I think back to others later, because it does not cost too much to chance On bass and dbbx. The price is what will draw most to these, as they are quite cheap, but not cheap enough that they can be considered an entry level compressor.

I have been using this limiter off and on for bout 7 years now, im not sure when it was created probably way before I started using it but comparing it to any software limiters is a mistake.

There are two versions X: If you are not use to the sound of the DBX compressors it is very distinguishable to my ears.

DBX X: Signal Processors/Rack Effects | eBay

Not only does it once the settings for both, but it behaves like a “real” stereo: It was a “big sound”, but not bold or aggressive, just the guitars were much more present, all the time, no color, no further aggression Using this unit you wont be able just to click on different limiting presets and compression presets.


It has a knob to set the threshold, a knob to set the output gain, and a knob for compressor ratio. Request a new review. One of my friends told me that ingestion front of people “known” Veronique Sanson and others used it on each slice of the table, but also on their table every ride!!

The manual will only help you if you know compression and how much to use or not to use. The over-easy is the voice or if you just want to smooth the level of an instrument without audible compression effect.

Stereo linkable with a simple TRS. I just purchase in the euros. A super mono compressor, stupid: I own or have owned a few compressors: This analog limiter is a rack able unit that can also be used as a compressor as well.

This X has no color, it gets bigger, it wakes up the details buried in his home, but added dvx. I would buy a better compressor such as the Empirical Labs or a really high end unit. Did you find this review helpful? And have a sound that loses the level when it exceeds the threshold.

I have not read the manual, it’s stuff that “feels”, I mixed the whole weekend with and I wonder if I’ll really take dnx trouble to read the manual I mainly placed above the bass, then taken to the mix with a different setting each time. If you are looking for some compressor that are a reasonable price and sound good, the dbx X is worth a look. It can be seen as a good or not according to what you want, but in my opinion, color the sound is not a compressor He had with him-among others-2 dbx X.

He mixed all of his guitars in a stereo bus dedicated to this pair of compressors. It is good for drums and guitars, but lacks the full quality I would look for in a vocal compressor.
