Product Details

dbx 286A Mic Preamp / Channel Strip Processor
The dbx® 286A's mic preamp and its five processors can be used independently or in any combination. Why mic up vocals and instruments through a noisy, blurry mixer? The dbx 286A's sonically pristine mic preamp has all the features you need, including wide-ranging input gain control, switchable 48V phantom power and an 80 Hz high-pass filter. Use the 286A's newly designed and patented OverEasy® compressor to transparently smooth out uneven acoustic tracks or deliver that classic "in your face" rock vocal. Take out vocal sibilance and high frequency distortion in cymbals with the 286A's frequency tunable De-Esser. Fine-tune the enhancer's HF Detail control to add sparkle and crispness to tracks. LF Detail control adds fullness and depth to vocals and bass instruments while simultaneously cleaning up muddy low midrange frequencies. Additionally, the expander/gate's separate threshold and ratio controls allow the subtle reduction of headphone leakage, or the radical gating of noisy guitar amps. The floating balanced XLR mic input accepts balanced or unbalanced inputs. An additional 1/4" TRS phone jack can accept balanced/unbalanced line signals to process live electronic instruments or pre-recorded tracks at mixdown. An insert jack between the 286A's mic preamp and signal processing sections can be used to "loop out" to external processors (such as EQ) or to mix the mic preamp's signal out to an external destination.
