DBX 165

Never used one, but here's some stuff from the www:

The DBX 165 is a solid state compressor/limiter with VU metering & like other dbx compressors, is known for its 'over easy' trademark compression sound.... the compression can be transparent, even when applying a significant amount of compression.

You could link two together for stereo use - Controls are: threshold, compression, attack, release, auto switch, meter function, output gain -


  • distortion (THD) <.2% (IMD) <.2% SMPTE
  • equivalent input noise -90dBu
  • dynamic range 114dB
  • compression ratio variable 1:1 to 1:infinity
  • attack time (auto) 15ms for 10dB, 5 ms for 20dB, 3 msfo 30dB (manual) variable from 2.5 to 1ms/dB

    Here's a company with a compressor plugin (compressorbank) which they say is modelled on the DBX 165 - might be interesting...
