After producing the world's most renown series of compressors, the task of producing a new compressor worthy of our reputation would be daunting for most engineers. Not for dbx®. Our engineers know audio like no one else in the world. Now the fruits of their talents are available to you in the form of the 1066 Stereo Compressor/Limiter/Gate.

Features:

  • Selectable auto (classic dbx®) or manual (variable Attack and Release) compression
  • Contour switch removes unwanted low frequency information from detector circuit
  • Selectable Overeasy® or Hard Knee compression modes
  • PeakStopPlus™ limiting for setting maximum allowable level with minimal distortion
  • SC Ext and SC Mon for setting up and monitoring external devices for gating function
  • True 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
  • True stereo or dual mono operation
  • Switchable +4dBu or -10dBV operation per channel
