The Contour switch
is extremely useful
in keeping low frequencies from
“muffling” or
“punching” holes in
your sound.
Flexible expander/gate works over
a 70 dB range.

Sidechain Monitor selection connects
the sidechain return signal to the 1066’s
output. This allows monitoring of any
signal that is inserted into the sidechain
loop to assist in setup.

dbx compressors have been the standard in signal processing for
dbx processing and that eight out of the top ten U.S. tours use dbx
over thirty years. After all, our processors are in daily use all around
each night because their sound is too valuable to trust to anyone
the world with major touring companies, world class recording stu-
else. But don’t take our word for it, head on down to your local deal-
dios, radio and television broadcast facilities and anywhere else that
er today and hear for yourself why dbx just sounds better.
audio professionals ply their trade.
dbx’s industry-standards: 166XL and 266XL
Why do the best ears in the business time and time again turn to
dbx for their processing needs? Maybe it’s because we invented the
modern day compressor. Perhaps it’s because we have over 30
patents to our credit. It could that our technology like OverEasy and
PeakStopPlus won’t be found in any other compressor. However, we
think it’s because dbx just sounds better.
It’s no wonder that countless gold and platinum albums have used
