About Behringer MDX2600

The Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600 Reference-Class 2-Channel Expander/Gate/Compressor/Peak Limiter 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.

Behringer MDX2600 Features

  • 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 with switchable male/female voice recognition, 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
  • Switchable tube simulation for the extra "warmth" and transparency of classic tube circuitry
  • 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
  • High quality detented ALPS potentiometers and illuminated switches
  • Relay-controlled hard bypass switch with auto bypass function in the case of power failure
  • Servo balanced inputs and outputs with gold-plated XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors
