Killer 2-channel Compressor/Limiter!
The heart of any dynamics processor is its VCA. The dbx 162SL is no different. It features dual proprietary dbx VCA modules. This state-of-the-art implementation of dbx's original Blackmer decilinear VCA sports an unheard of dynamic range and ultra-low distortion seen only previously in the Blue 160SLs. With sonic clarity designed for the studio, the 162SL maintains its superior performance in harsh environments, pure enough for the studio, rugged enough for the road was the engineering motto of the Purple Series of Compressors / Limiters. Like it's big brother the 162SL, it takes full advantage of the best parts available and dbx's cutting-edge manufacturing, including Jensen transformers on each output standard. Following in the footsteps of the Blue Series, with the Purple Series 162SL, dbx continues to make to the most technologically cutting-edge compressors in the world.
