The DBX 162SL Purple Series Audio Compressor Limiter combines the best features of all the great DBX compressors, past and present, and gives you more versatile performance than ever before. In addition to having the auto attack and release as well as the hard knee threshold characteristics of the classic DBX 160, the 162SL compressor offers AutoVelocity manual mode, in addition to the classic DBX OverEasy mode, made standard by the legendary DBX 165A.
The familiar striking front panel of the DBX 162SL, machined from 1/4 inch aircraft aluminum, handcrafted solid aluminum knobs, LEDs mounted individually in machined stainless steel housings, custom VU meters with peak indicators, and heavy gauge chassis mark the 162SL as a leader for decades to come.
The heart of any dynamics processor is its VCA. The DBX 162SL is no different. This great compressor limiter features dual proprietary DBX VCA modules. This state-of-the-art implementation of DBX's original Blackmer decilinear VCA boasts an unheard of dynamic range and ultra-low distortion seen only previously in the Blue 160SLs. With sonic clarity designed for the studio, the DBX 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 DBX 162SL compressor takes full advantage of the best parts available and DBX's advanced manufacturing, including Jensen transformers on each output standard. Following in the footsteps of the Blue Series 160SL, with the Purple Series 162SL, DBX continues to create to the most technologically advanced compressors in the world.
