dbx® 160 Compressor / Limiter
A 'Must Have'
This compressor is definitely a 'must have'. Perfect for drums, buss or for parallel processing ,the Dbx 160 is in every song that I produce. Thanks UAD!
Works very different to other compressors,great for attack,good on bass,drums,perfect for parallel compression
Gives an edge to the sound you're working on. I have it a lot of things in a mix. Become my go to vst compressor
All I can say that it’s great. Love the sound
Best software emulation of the hardware I've heard
I've used the Waves plugin since it was released and it's become a big part of my sound, particularly on snares. I demoed the UAD DBX plugin and did a blind test between the two and the UAD one was in a different league. Really punchy with a nice slam but maintains the weight of the drum
THE SNARE DRUM PRO SOUND CHAIN COMPRESSOR dbx® 160 THE ONE!
Yes, and wait till you use it on everything else. It has massive wide spread usability and you'll know where when you patch it in. Everyone loves it on Bass too. Low DSP - Fat Sound...Warm & Punchy! This is one of the UAD TOP 20. If you have the 33609 get it. NO OTHER Compressor can do what the 160 does. The Virtigo maxed out comes close. If could only use one compressor on drums....this is THE ONE!
Like it very much!!!
Small in size, but big in business. This compressor handles the drum parts very well. It's really just a miracle!Everybody has to have the compressor!
big sound on drums
big sound on drums especially an 808
Nice and little but powerful drum-compressor/limiter
Great for drums and other stuff...gives great punch. GUI is a bit little, we hope for scaleable versions of all plugins in future ;-D.
Why'd I wait..
I always loved this little box. UA nailed it of course. Nothing else gives me that pop like the dbx 160. THx!
Best Drums Compressor!
So easy to use takes just a few seconds to tweak and BAM I got that snare sound that i was looking for. Works great on any type of percussive source Just like the Hardware and it's very Dsp friendly as well which is a big plus. A must have Compressor!
Talk about easy!!!
When they say easy to use... oh man they mean it!!! Anything you put the 160 on, it just works. It adds flavor to the harmonics. I love it!
Love it on drums!
Been recording a lot of drums using it and couldn't be happier.
Great gear, great emulation! I just wish UAD would revamp the UI. The plugin windows is too small for nowadays monitor res.
Punch and hard sound over every sampler you want
Warm, tight and punch sound. I really love the way this compresor make my samplers sounds bigger and great!
Want punchy drums, GET THIS.
This plugin just delivers punch and in your face drum sounds. I use it on my kick and snare and it seriously took them from ok to being present, punchy and powerful. A really useful tool for tracking / mixing.
DBX 160 Classic
Easy to use and and poweful compression !
Big little thing
My first impression was: Oh how pathetic it looks!! Hard to find it again once it got lost between other open plugins...Really, it needs to be scalable! OK - the original was a tiny little box, but...Under the little hood it sounds as you´d expect it from Universal Audio: Big! Great on drums. I definitely would use it more often - but its guy stops me from really loving it. Call me crazy.
Simple and effective
What a great and simple to use compressor. It was always my go to compressor for bass guitar but I have used it on vocals and guitars too, it sounds greats
