Spokesperson Jason Kunz, told us, "The dbx goRack boils all the essentials of our industry-leading DriveRack processors into an affordable product that is incredibly simple to use. With the introduction of goRack, bands and musicians everywhere can now easily and significantly improve the sound of their PA."
The goRack offers processing including EQ, compression, AFS Automatic Feedback Suppression, Subharmonic Synthesis for enhanced low-frequency response and more. Five buttons offer access to the most commonly used processing effects, and a large data wheel lets users quickly dial in any of the goRack's processing sound-enhancement effects including 20 musical genre-based 31-band graphic EQ settings.
