SKU: DBX-1066

For general speaker insurance, our new PeakStopPlus improves. With another configuration, the PeakStopPlus curbs those unwanted transients from blowing your drivers while minimizing the twisting normal to numerous other "hard" limiters. Selectable Hard-Knee or OverEasy attributes make the 1066 perfect for your addition control needs, whether you're searching for "substantial" practically embellishments pressure or delicate, smooth increase leveling. New lightpipe innovation replaces standard LED's found on most different units, making the 1066 both simple to peruse and much less demanding to work. 

In the studio, communicate office or out and about with a P.A. system, the 1066 is intended for splendidly basic operation. The 1066 permits you to wipe out undesirable signals, adaptably control general signal gain and guard your general mix in dual mono or stereo operation. 

At the heart of the 1066 is our new dbx V2 VCA. introduced directly for the 1066, 1046 and other 10 arrangement items to come, this progressive VCA brags heavenly element range qualities while keeping up low distortion and verging on unlimited noise attributes. The main issue is this: another VCA working in conjunction with world class outline improves the dbx 1066 perform than compressors offering for hundreds more. 
latest technology VCA's, careful part selection, and trustworthy testing methods are only a couple of more reasons that the new dbx 1066 is the most recent in a long line of pedigreed dbx signal processors.
