Product Details

dbx 1046 Quad Compressor / Limiter

In today's recording and sound reinforcement environments, the need for multiple channels of high quality, easy to use compression is growing rapidly. The new dbx® 1046 is designed to provide the audio professional with just that: four channels of great sounding dbx compression for a variety of applications. Incorporating the industry standard dbx designs and the latest available manufacturing techniques, the dbx 1046 provides pristine sonic quality with that classic dbx sound.

The 1046 provides four channels of smooth classic dbx OverEasy® or Hard Knee compression that are perfectly suited for use on individual tracks of your multitrack recorder. In virtually all applications, the separate channels can be individually interfaced and used for entirely independent purposes. Additionally, the newly developed PeakStopPlus™ is ideal for protecting your system from the oppressive peaks that can take out valuable drivers in your sound reinforcement rig or studio monitors.

All four channels have the following controls: 

Threshold - sets the level at which the compressor starts affecting the gain.

OverEasy - selects between soft compression for overall gain control or Hard Knee compression based on the characteristics of the original dbx 160. 

Ratio - sets the slope of gain reduction affecting the signal over the threshold level. 

Input/Output Meter - sets the meter to check the input and output levels for maximum signal-to-noise ratio and best level matching. 

Output Gain - adds make-up gain or to adjust the output level for that channel to match the next device's input gain. 

Bypass - hard wire bypass for monitoring how the compressor is affecting the original signal signal. 

PeakStopPlus - sets the maximum signal level to pass through this channel. While it's virtually impossible to eliminate distortion, the PeakStopPlus circuit does it gracefully and effectively with minimal
