DBX 160 question

Can't find much info on the reverse ratio thing. Is it really just a downward expander?

It's been a VERY long time since I used one, but that was my general impression. If it's the same model I am thinking of, this was early to mid 90's and while it was essentially a downward expander, I recall some distinct weirdness if taken too far. I hesitate to call them artifacts, as it might have been intentional. I just don't know, and didn't regularly use it for that purpose.

Are you sure you mean a 160. Its a very straightforward compressor. I do recall a box like you describe....maybe a 170 or something?

It was more or a consumer box as I recall.

It's the 160 with ratio all the way up. It's a little odd, never used it. Everything else below that setting is great.
