The most compact 8-channel compressor ever

Clear input signal and compression meters are available on each channel. Bypass mode is indicated by a LED as is the channel link function which enables you to link adjacent channels for stereo compression.

The audio quality is uncompromising, the unit has fully balanced in- and outputs and offers you that fat British compression sound equalling units costing much more !

No more hesitating on which channel you are going to use compression on because there are not enough compressors available, just patch the dBC-8 compression channels where you need them.

A must have in any outboard rack !
