DBX DBX266XSV Professional Audio Compressor/Gate Dynamic Processor

The DBX DBX266XSV Professional Audio Compressor/Gate Dynamic Processor gives you more dynamic control to help create a more polished, professional sound. Compression in your audio chain allows you to smooth out uneven levels, add sustain to guitars and fatten up your drums. It also makes it easy to bring vocals to the front of your mix adding greater clarity and making them stand out from the surrounding instruments.

The 266xs is the latest in a long line of the world's most successful compressors from the inventors of the technology. Its patented Overeasy compression technology provides smooth and musical performance while the AutoDynamic attack and release controls, found only on DBX compressors, puts great sound within easy reach.

Smooth Operation

The 266xs can operate in stereo or dual-mono modes that have true RMS power summing and feature quality XLR and 1/4 inch TRS inputs and outputs. It cuts no corners on visual feedback with gain-reduction metering and easy-to-read backlit switches.
