Ship prepaid, not collect. Side-chain applications Frequency-weighted compression It is possible to separate certain vocals and instruments from a mix by fre- quency-weighted compression. It is also possible to separate cer- tain vocals or instruments from a mono program already mixed by fre- quency-weighted compression see page Know the serial number of your unit — this is printed on a mamual attached to the rear panel.

The 1 60X offers 160st user the choice of using the Over Easy curve or a mathematically precise “hard” threshold-at any compression ratio selected.

Other instruments, such as horns, vary in loudness depending on the note being played, and benefit similarly. Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. Pre-emphasis for broadcast applications By inserting a pre-emphasis filter network in the detector path of a XT processing pre-emphasized audio, higher levels can be run within the headroom limitations of the broadcast chain. Manufactured under one or more of the following U.

Multi-way speaker systems If a single compressor is to be used with a multi-way speaker system i. The Registration Card enables us to inform you of new applications and performance improvements that are developed, and it helps us re- spond db to claims under warranty without having to request a copy of your bill of sale or other proof of purchase.

This symbol, wherever it appears, alerts you to the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage inside the enclosure — voltage that may be sufficient to constitute a risk of shock.

Microphones and bass guitars, like guitars, typically have low-level out- puts. De-Essing To apply de-essing to vocals i. Using your EQ to reduce feedback in live settings.


Do not ship parcel post. Use the original packing material if it is available. Insure the package properly. The equal- izer can be adjusted for boost with a peak of about 5kHz, causing the cym- bal to be compressed on a very manial crash, stopping tape saturation at high frequencies, where there is less headroom.

Customer Service The Schematic for the XT boards and power supply are provided on the inside back cover.

An unbalanced line is generally a single-conductor shielded cable with the center conductor carrying the signal and the shield at ground potential.

Live As the colors of the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the colored markings identifying the terminals in your plug, manuual as follows: This will suppress the program material pre- ceding this loud passage.

If two independent compressors are used to process the stereo program, a loud sound occurring in one channel will cause a gain reduction only in that channel. We suggest saving the shipping carton and packing materials for safely transporting the unit in the future. In certain situations, the auxiliary device may need to be inserted in the signal path, not in the detector path. Kanual a setting of The dbx Model X is well suited to a broad range of applications including tape recording, disc mastering, radio and TV production and broadcast, live concert sound reinforcement, mobile and theatrical production.

160xr balanced line is defined as two-conductor shielded cable with the two center conductors carrying the same signal but of opposite polarity with re- spect to ground. The control curve of the RATIO potentiometer has been designed to pro- vide total operator control, with scale expansion at the subtle lower ratios for easy, repeatable settings.

This is a special negative compression effect whereby the program dynamics are inverted above the set threshold i. Be sure to verify both your actual line voltage and the volt- age for which your Model XT was wired, as indicated on the rear panel of your unit. With an equalizer inserted ahead of the detector input but not in the audio paththe equalization settings do not shift the timbre or frequency response of the audio signal. By removing the strapping, the detector input can be separated from the signal input for special pro- cessing applications.


Be pre- pared to accurately describe the problem. This can be avoided by linking the two compressors in such a way that both channels receive the same amount of compression.

If you do not plan to use 160xy XT for an extended period of time, unplug it. Useful when troubleshooting hum AC line interfer- ence. Increasing sustain To increase the sustain of a musical instrument e. In Over Easy mode, the threshold of compression is defined as the approximate middle of the Over Easy threshold region, as shown in Figure The master 1 60XT will now respond to the combined inputs of the XTs.

In radio or television broadcast, the XT will produce 16xt voice levels, even with non-professional subjects. Depending on the THRESHOLD setting, lower level fundamentals or harmonics will not cause compression, and the program is not subject to the phase shift nor- mally caused by program equalization.

There are no user-serviceable parts in- side, and you run the risk of an electric shock. The system can then be run at higher levels and will only be dropped back when dam- aging signals are present. Note that the XT does not 160t a power switch. Instead a DC voltage controls all functions which eliminates any possibility of potentiometer noise as the con- trols age.

As a general rule, the compressors should be as close manuzl the amplifiers as possible in the signal chain. Your 1 60XT was carefully packed at the factory in a protective carton.
