The reference-class MDX2600 is a marvelous dual-channel Expander/ Gate/Compressor/Peak Limiter that is ideal for: compressing mono/ stereo signals and providing virtually inaudible noise suppression, without loss of high frequencies, increasing vocal presence and energy, and limiting, or smoothing out extremely-high signal peaks. Additionally, the MDX2600 features an integrated Dynamic Enhancer, De-Esser, Low-Contour filter and our revolutionary, switchable Tube simulation - for the extra warmth and transparency of classic tube circuitry. Put simply, the MDX2600 can do amazing things for your vocals or instruments - providing virtually everything you need for studio-quality dynamics processing!

Here are just a few of the MDX2600`s outstanding capabilities:

Switchable IKA (Interactive Knee Adaptation) - provides program-adaptive compression, combining all the advantages of both hard and soft-knee compression
IGC (Interactive Gain Control) - combines clipper and program limiter for reliable, inaudible protection against signal peaks
Enhancer - lets you emphasize the Bass, Midrange and Hi output at selectable frequencies for maximum punch, clarity and detail - without raising overall volume
Tube Simulation - provides the extra warmth and transparency of classic tube circuitry, creating a sound rich in harmonic content
De-Esser - must-have tool with switchable male/female voice recognition for reducing sibilance, while preserving natural voice timbre - often used to enhance upper-mid, to high-frequency smoothness in vocals, drum overheads, strings, etc.
Side Chain - allows insertion of graphic/parametric EQ to reduce specific frequencies - also often used to tighten up tracks using an internal or external signal to trigger compression, or gating of signal being processed (ex. using bass guitar signal to un-gate kick drum)
Stereo Couple - links both channels, allowing Channel 1 dials and switches to provide dynamics control over both channels (true stereo processing)

The secret behind the COMPOSER PRO-XL MDX2600`s incredible sound is our Tube Modeling processor, which exudes the very essence of tube and compression. This amazing circuitry accurately emulates the performance characteristics of highly sought-after classic tube compressors, creating a sound that is so rich in harmonic content - you`ll wonder where we hid the tubes!

The MDX2600 features amazingly-accurate 12-segment LED meters for In/Out Level and Gain Reduction, switchable +4 dBu or -10 dBV operating level, Side Chain I/O, and servo-balanced XLR and quarter inch Inputs and Outputs. Best of all, the COMPOSER PRO-XL MDX2600 takes up just a single rackspace.

The incredible MDX2600 is the ideal solution for becoming the master of your dynamics. With its flexible routing options, all the I/O you could ask for, plus a host of other professional features - the MDX2600 is an exceptional tool for your live shows - and an absolute must-have for your studio!
