dbx 286S · Dynamic Processor

The dbx 286 S has a balanced XLR socket for microphones and a balanced jack input for line level. Input signals can be amplified by up to 60 dB, the level is displayed with four LEDs. Low-frequency hum, wind noise and other background noises below 80 Hz are effectively filtered with the "High Pass" function. High-quality studio microphones can also be operated with the 48 V phantom power. An insert socket allows external effects devices to be looped in before dynamic processing.

An effective compressor for limiting and compressing the signal is available for dynamic processing of the signal. The gain reduction is indicated by eight LEDs. The de-esser is used to remove unwanted hissing sounds, two LEDs help for visual control.

The Enhancer is an intelligent tone control: With "LF-Detail" the range is raised by 80 Hz and at the same time the range is lowered by 250 Hz - this gives rich bass without obtrusive and uncomfortable low mids. "HF-Detail" not only raises the high frequencies, but also generates additional overtones through phase and amplitude changes, which make the sound image more present and make the sound more "shine".

The noise gate can be used to remove crosstalk and background noise. Two LEDs inform whether the set threshold value is undercut or exceeded. The gain control adapts the output level very flexibly to downstream devices.
