dbx and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd have announced immediate availability of the new dbx 560A Compressor/Limiter 500 Series module. They tell us that the dbx 500 Series processors are five compact yet powerful half-rack-space recording studio signal processors which also include the 530 Parametric EQ, 580 Mic Pre, 520 De-Esser and 510 Sub Harmonic Synth.
The dbx 560A Compressor/Limiter provides flexible control of dynamics including threshold, compression ratio and output gain. It offers selectable classic hard-knee compression or exclusive OverEasy mode incorporating dbx's highly musical program-dependent attack and release times. The compression ratio is variable from 1:1 through infinity:1 to -1:1 and the 560A also has a unique Infinity+ compression mode using negative ratios. dbx says that adjustment is easy thanks to the 560A's ladder-style LED RMS gain-reduction and input/output meter displays with true RMS level detection.
Spokesperson, Jason Kunz, said, "Our 500 Series processors bring renowned dbx signal processing to a smaller footprint than ever before while delivering the signature sound quality engineers, producers and musicians know they can rely on from dbx. In addition to taking up little real estate, they're extremely simple to use yet provide the sound-tailoring flexibility needed to create the perfect track or final mix."
