DBX DDP Digital Audio Dynamics Processor Look Ahead Limiter Compressor Analog IO [Used]
( 363139034480) )
Tested/Guaranteed • Used, Fully Working (But NO LCD Backlight) • Good Condition • Analog I/O on Balanced XLRs
Item is used and has been tested to confirm that it works as it should, apart from the fact that the LCD backlight has failed. The display is legible under normal indoor lighting conditions, but it will be difficult to read if your studio has low light levels. It is in good cosmetic condition - the photos show the actual item for sale. Note that these units have an internal CR2032 memory back up battery which has a finite life and which therefore is not warrantied. If the unit reports a checksum error on start up, just replace the battery. I'll include a spare one in the box for you. This is a 115V device.

The LCD display shows you all the information you need to know, complete with a digital meter that will blow your socks off, featuring peak and average levels at the same time. Wouldn't it be nice if you could see the effects of your entire setup in one place? They are displayed visually in the form of a graphical curve on the right side of the display, making it a snap to set up even the most challenging of systems. In fact, it works right out of the box, no Ph.D. required, with 50 great factory preset setups to help you get started.
The DDP's operating system offers you the ability to refine and save presets to your liking then name and save them as your own presets for later recall. Wide ranging gain controls allow for both +4 and -10 operation, without any effort on your part. The 8-step analog LED ladders show you exactly what is coming in and going out of the DDP. Metering on the display shows the effects of the processing on the signal in real time. Audio performance is also top shelf, with ultra-wide range 24bit A/D and D/A converters with dbx® TYPE IV™ Conversion System featuring TSE™ (Tape Saturation Emulation) right on board. Digital input/output is also available as an option, giving you the ability to go all-digital.
