DBX 266XS Compressor/Gate, Most compressor/gates provide less than musical compression, coupled with gating that swallows transientsor closes early, cutting off decay and reverb tails. The superb engineering in the 266XS ensures that both its compression and gating provide versatility and excellent sonic performance in situations where other compressor/gates typically produce undesirable processing artifacts.


  • Error proof operation to smooth uneven levels, add sustain to guitars, fatten drums or tighten up mixes
  • New gate timing algorithms ensure the smoothest release characteristics
  • Program-adaptive expander/gates
  • Great sounding dynamics control for any type of program material
  • Separate precision LED displays for gain reduction, compression threshold and gate threshold allow quick, accurate setup
  • Stereo or dual-mono operation
  • Balanced inputs and outputs on 1/4 inch TRS and XLR connectors
  • Side Chain insert
  • Classic DBX Auto mode
