Hey, I just randomly picked one of these compressors up on ebay for 25 bucks, but I have been having trouble finding a lot of information about it. I am somewhat new to outboard gear, doing everything in protools up until this point.

I understand that this compressor is very similar to a dbx160, but I don't really know what that means lol.

Any info about this compressor would be greatly appreciated, such as quality, what people normally use it on, etc?

Thanks in advance

its one kick ass compressor in my opinion.

For the measly sum you pay for, you get a compressor with variable attack, release, threshold and you get a de esser plus a sidechain.


Not bad.

I don't know how close it is to the dbx160 but it sounds great on its own without the dbx qualifier.

I heard they can be modded.

I used to own a pair of them, I used them on snare and bassline for The Goonies first album.

Peace

I got one some times ago and used it on vocals and bass up to now.
This thing kicks ass really, it has a lot of tone to it, either it works wonder or it doesn't at all, it's pretty extreme.

The controls are hard to set, you can't really just take 1-2db off, it's either nothing or at least 6dB pretty much but it's still a nice tool to have around.

Anyways, does anybpdy have a manual for this thing?
