4 channels of dbx compression. Each channel has threshold, ratio and 'OverEasy' (between soft compression for overall gain control or Hard Knee compression based on the characteristics of the original dbx 160). Plus In/Out meter, output gain, bypass and PeakStopPlus.

You can stereo link channels 1&2 and 3&4. XLR and 1/4" I/O, and switchable +4dBu or -10dBV operating level. 1U.
