Behringer MDX1600 Compressor/Limiter




This unit is an alternative to the old Behringer Ultramizer Pro which we use in our audio rack. Robbie calls this a “must” for any audio or video podcast studio.

Behringer MDX1600 AUTOCOM PRO-XL – Two Channel Compressor/Limiter with Gating and De-Essing

The AUTOCOM PRO-XL MDX1600 from Behringer is an interactive, reference-class two-channel expander/gate/compressor/peak limiter with integrated dynamic enhancer, de-esser and low contour filter, housed in a single space rack-mount chassis.

Applicable to recording, mixing or mastering, the unit provides total dynamic control. Additionally it features a unique adjustable IDE dynamic enhancer that provides subtle and very musical compensation for the bass “boost” effect that can result from heavy compression.

Switchable program adaptive compression circuitry combines the advantages of both hard and soft knee characteristics
Adjustable dynamic enhancer with level meter for boosting high frequencies under heavy compression
Interactive gain control peak limiting circuitry combines clipper and program limiter for reliable and inaudible protection against signal peaks
Switchable de-esser removes excess sibilance from vocal tracks
Interactive ratio control expander/gate circuitry for virtually inaudible noise suppression
Automatic or manual adjustable attack and release times
Switchable low contour filter prevents “pumping” due to low-frequency dominated compression
Stereo coupling function with independent output level settings
Switchable side-chain input with side-chain monitor function
Separate 12-segment LED meters for input/output levels and gain reduction
Servo balanced inputs and outputs with gold-plated XLR and 1/4″ TRS connectors
