Product Description

Now, for less than the price of a handful of good cables, you can dramatically improve the sound and impact of your mix with a powerful dynamics processor. The new Autocom Pro-XL is an Interactive reference-class 2-channel Expander/Gate/Compressor/Peak limiter with an integrated Dynamic Enhancer, De-esser and Low Contour Filter. This combination of features, plus automatic and manual interactive controls makes it a powerful tool that's easy to operate. The automatic voice-adaptive De-esser with male/female voice recognition removes those hideous "S" sounds from vocals and sibilance from overly bright signal sources. The onboard Expander provides virtually inaudible noise suppression, even under heavy compression. Other features include switchable hard bypass and XLR & 1/4" inputs & outputs.

The AUTOCOM PRO-XL MDX1600 is loaded with many of the same features as the COMPOSER PRO-XL. Additionally it features a unique adjustable IDE dynamic enhancer that provides subtle and very musical compensation for the bass “boost” effect that results from heavy compression.

Behringer Autocom Pro XL MDX1600 Features

  • Switchable IKA (Interactive Knee Adaptation) program-adaptive compression circuitry combines the advantages of hard-knee and soft-knee characteristics

Subject
Behringer has done it again. Great sound, easy to use and an easy to read manual.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
All knobs feel very sound and secure. I have been playing music for over 4 decades now and have purchased a lot of junk down through the years. The Behringer MDX 1600 does NOT fall into the category of junk.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The noise gate works "superbly"!!!! This is the main reason I ordered it in the first place.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
As always, Behringer is easy to use and their manuals are easy to understand.
Sound
How is the tone?
Ter"riff"ic!!!! The in/out switch when not depressed (bypass) does not affect the sound of my guitar at all. I recorded a track or two with the effects on. Then recorded a track or two with the effects off. I then rewired my system completely bypassing the unit and recorded each "take" in Cakewalk. I could hear no difference in sound between the "bypass" take and when I took it completely out of the loop.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
As I previously stated, I have been using this for a little over one week now. Reliability is a "?".
General
Your general opinion of this product.
The more I work with this item the more I like it. Every time I learn a new part/effect it makes me want to keep going. I've only used this for a week or so now and the ease of use is impeccable.
