This makes the XT audio input suitable for use with virtually any dbd impedance, low or high. Each XT is tested, burned in and calibrated at the factory and should require no internal adjustment of any type throughout the life of the unit.

Microphones and bass guitars, like guitars, typically have low-level out- puts. If you have not it will be confusing.

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 the trouble to read the manual I mainly placed above the bass, then taken to the mix with a different setting each time. Your 1 60XT was carefully packed at the factory in a protective carton. Frequency-Weighted Compression With this arrangement, raising certain frequencies on the equalizer causes them to be suppressed in the audio signal.

Mono Analog Compressor Rack 1U in height. Mounting the unit directly over large heat-producing devices such as a vacuum-tube power 1160x may shorten component life and is not rec- ommended. I did not have the manual but I found the site DBX see abovethere is also that of the A same thing but easier to read in English only.


Once it was removed, it was a more punchy, more honest with attacks. These features make the Model X compatible with the operating levels of virtually all professional sound and creative audio manuwl.

Dbx 160X Instruction Manual

When compressing a stereo program with a pair of XTs, mnaual factors affecting a compression curve and the actual compression ratio and threshold settings, are like those previously covered with reference to single channels of program material. The best starting point is to ground the shield of the input cable at the source device leaving it unconnected at the 1 60XT and to ground the shield of the output cable to the ground terminal of the 1 60XT leaving it unconnected at the receiving device.

The metering is smartly made and the bright LEDs help you to see exactly where you level is at. Preventing tape saturation With programs of widely varying levels, compression can prevent record- ing levels from saturating tape tracks see Frequency-weighted compres- sion, page Make sure you have correctly followed installation steps and operation procedures.

When you need it, it triggers the button “slave” on one of two compressors, and it made all the settings on the other. If you are using a Stereo phone plug at the next device, tie the Ring and Sleeve together, and connect the sleeve to the wire’s Shield. Threshold, ratio, output, bypass Not only does it once the settings for both, but it behaves like a “real” stereo: By removing the strapping, the detector input can be separated from the signal input for special pro- cessing applications.

Do not short either pin 2 or pin 3 to ground. If you need to return a product to the factory for service, include a letter describing the problem. I will come to an edit if necessary later! The 1 60X offers the user the choice of using the Over Easy curve or a mathematically precise “hard” threshold-at any compression ratio selected. On the Athis entry exists in jack, the terminal has disappeared.


This X has no color, it gets bigger, it wakes up the details buried in his home, but dbc nothing. It is also possible to separate cer- tain vocals or instruments from a mono program already mixed by fre- quency-weighted compression see page 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 Due manuwl the gentle OverEasy characteristic of your XT you will find that even fairly high ratios are handled transparently.

And have a sound that loses the level when it exceeds the threshold.

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. Another option is to install an output trans- former, which will allow grounding of either pin 2 or 3 of the XLR-type out- put see page To describe the somewhat “universal Swiss Army knife” of the craft In the studio, the 1 60XT can be used on everything from vocals to manuzl.

Applications The dbx XT is capable of handling a wide range of applications.
