OverEasy® or classic hard knee compression with dbx's® ultra-musical program dependent attack and release times
OverEasy®/Hard Knee Selection -- allows selection between our famous OverEasy compression curve and the classic“Hard Knee” curve popularized by the original dbx 160, 161 and 162. In OverEasy mode, the threshold of compression is defined as the middle of the OverEasy threshold region, that is, “half-way” into compression. In Hard Knee mode, the threshold of compression is defined as that point above which the output level no longer changes on a 1:1 basis with changes in the input level.
Compression ratio variable from 1:1 through infinity :1 to negative compression
Rotate the dbx160A's Compression Ratio control clockwise to increase the amount of compression from 1:1 (no compression) up to infinity:1 (no increase in output level, regardless of input level increases above threshold); further clockwise rotation increases compression into the INFINITY+ region, up to a maximum of 1:1 (i.e., a 1dB increase in input level above threshold causes a 1dB decrease in output level). In the INFINITY+ region, the 160A inverts the program dynamics for special effects.
Precision dual RMS LED display monitors input or output and gain reduction over a wide range and calibrates for different operating levels
True RMS Level Detection™ -- senses the power in the program in a musical manner, much as the ear does, giving results superior to peak or average detection.
19-Segment LED Display for high resolution monitoring of True RMS INPUT and OUTPUT LEVELs; 12-Segment LED Display for GAIN REDUCTION (up to 40dB).
Input/Output meter calibration, so the 160A can be used in a variety of situations where the “0” reference is not consistent
XLR-type Input and Output Jacks
The 3-pin XLR connector has been recognized as the most durable and widely used connector for professional applications.
Input Ground Lift SwiInput Ground Lift Switch
The 160A's Ground Lift internally disconnects pin 1 of the input XLR jack from 160A chassis ground to eliminate any ground loop hum problems that may arise
Strappable with another 160A for true RMS stereo summing operation
When two 160As are connected via their rear panel STEREO STRAPPING jacks, depressing the SLAVE button on one160A of the stereo pair determines that the other 160A will be the Master
