dbx Professional Products, a Salt Lake City-based manufacturer of professional signal processing products and a division of Harman International, showed a new compressor/limiter at the recent 2004 Namm Summer show.
The Purple Series™ 162SL Compressor/Limiter features dbx’s proprietary AutoVelocity attack and release circuit. The 162SL has been designed to provide contractors uncompromising, state-of-the-art compression and limiting, while maintaining a simple and intuitive control interface.
Based on the prestigious lineage of the now legendary Blue Series 160SL Compressor / Limiter, the 162SL is designed for the most demanding user in the most extreme conditions. Built to be as transparent as possible, the 162SL’s sonic purity is rivaled by only its big brother, the Blue 160SL. Designed specifically to handle the abuse of the road, while still delivering clarity henceforth reserved for the studio, the 162SL is currently available.
