dbx 1046 · Dynamic Processor

With the 1046 dbx took the 1066 dynamic processor and decided that if two channels of compression were good, four channels of compression would be even better. The dbx 1046 provides four independent channels of operation, stereo linkable in two pairs, and PeakStopPlus limiting control for setting maximum level regardless of compressor settings. the dbx 1046 gives you twice as much of everything that was in the 1066 in the same size package, but NOT at twice the price!

Each channel features threshold, OverEasy or hard knee compression, ratio, input/output meter, output gain, hard-wire bypass, stereo link combining channels 1&2 and 3&4 for 2 channels of true stereo compression, balanced gold-plated XLR and 1/4" inputs and outputs, and switchable +4dBu or -10dBV operating level. Control the level, placement in the mix, or overall characteristics of four independent signals or control the gain leveling on a couple of stereo pairs, the dbx 1046 Quad Compressor Limiter is for you.
