Achieve Smooth and Controlled Audio with the dbx 560A Compressor/Limiter
The dbx 560A is a versatile compressor/limiter that offers a range of features to help you achieve controlled and polished audio. Whether you're looking for subtle dynamic control or more pronounced compression effects, the dbx 560A has the tools to suit your needs.
Flexible Compression Options
The dbx 560A offers both OverEasy® compression and classic hard knee compression modes. OverEasy® mode provides a smooth and musical compression response that adapts to the input signal's dynamics. This mode is particularly useful for maintaining a natural and transparent sound while keeping dynamic peaks in check.
On the other hand, the classic hard knee compression mode provides a more traditional compression behavior. It responds abruptly when the input signal crosses the threshold, offering a more pronounced compression effect. This mode can be suitable for situations where you want a clear and defined compression action.
Variable Compression Ratio
The dbx 560A allows you to adjust the compression ratio to your liking. You can set the ratio anywhere from 1:1 through infinity:1 to -1:1. This wide range of ratio options enables you to achieve various degrees of compression, from gentle smoothing to aggressive limiting.
Precise Metering and Gain Reduction
The compressor features precise RMS gain reduction and input/output meter displays. These meters provide visual feedback on the compression process, helping you monitor and adjust the levels accurately. The calibration control allows you to tailor the metering to different operating levels.
One of the unique features of the dbx 560A is the exclusive Infinity+ compression mode. This mode uses negative compression ratios to create intriguing and experimental compression effects. By reversing the compression process, Infinity+ compression can produce artistic and unconventional dynamics manipulation.
Program Dependent Attack and Release
The dbx 560A incorporates dbx's program dependent attack and release times. This means that the compressor adjusts its attack and release parameters based on the input signal's characteristics. This adaptive behavior ensures a musical and natural compression response that enhances the audio without introducing unwanted artifacts.
