Control your dynamics, all in a single rackspace unit!

    The dbx 1046 Compressor is bursting with features! Each of this compressors four channels is an independent compressor / limiter with separate connection points (gold-plated XLR and ¼") so you can use them for different purposes at the same time! Each channel allows you to select between dbx's classic OverEasy® or hard knee compression and control threshold and compression ratio. Plus, you get dbx’s legendary PeakStop® limiting on each channel to control your recordings and help protect PA system components.

    Features

  • Four independent channels of operation, stereo linkable in two pairs
  • PeakStopPlus™ limiting control for setting maximum allowable level regardless of compressor settings
  • Independent Threshold and ratio controls
  • Switchable OverEasy® or Hard Knee compression
  • Classic dbx® 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
