This Channel Strip Packs Serious Bang for the Buck!
Looking for a fast way to get a great vocal sound? Check out the dbx 286s channel strip. Equally at home in the studio as it is in your live rig, the 286s channel strip puts four powerful vocal processing tools at your disposal. First and foremost, the 286s is an excellent microphone preamplifier, which features a +48V phantom power, an 80Hz highpass filter, and a wide range of gain control. Next, there's the 286s's compression section, which sports dbx's classic OverEasy soft knee function to smooth out vocals without robbing them of their natural expressiveness. Remove unwanted sibilance with the 286s's de-esser section - a must-have processor for live vocals and a great tool for taming harsh-sounding cymbals. You can also add low-end resonance and high-end sparkle with the 286s's enhancer section. Finally, there's the expander/gate section, which helps bring down stray noise and reduce ambient stage volume. The 286s also features an external "loop out" insert path, so you can patch in an EQ or other processor as well. That makes the dbx 286s a perfect fit in any kind of rig!
