Straightforward and intuitive controls make set-up very easy and fast

Critical when working with gates is the ability to trigger on the signals you intended to trigger on. For this reason the dBG-8 has been equipped with a very powerful side-chain band-pass equaliser. We have even added a listen function so that you can really fine-trim the signal on which you want the gate to trigger.

Bypass and Gate open/close functions are clearly indicated by LEDs. No compromise has been made to the audio quality, the unit has fully electronically balanced inputs and outputs and uses very accurate circuitry.

With 8 channels available, you can put gates on the complete drum kit, or use some on backing vocals. dBG-8 offers you a very powerful means to clean up your sounds and tighten your mix.

A must have in any outboard rack !
