    Product Description

    Behringer MDX2600 Composer Pro XL

    With the original COMPOSER, Behringer set the industry standard. Hundreds of thousands of units have been sold worldwide, making it one of the most successful compressors of all time. Today, the revamped Composer Pro-XL benefits from their experience and input from musicians & engineers around the world. The Composer is a state-of-the-art, 2-channel dynamics processor with auto and manual Compression, Tube simulation for extra warmth and transparency of classic tube circuitry, an Interactive Expander/Gate, a Peak Limiter, an adjustable Voice-adaptive De-esser with male/female voice recognition, a Dynamic Enhancer and relay-controlled hard bypass. It's a powerful tool that lets you precisely control an instrument or a complete mix. Behringer ensures that quality does not take second place to fancy new technology. Ultra low-noise 4580 op amps and state-of-the-art VCAs for more headroom and a crystal-clear signal path as well as high-quality ALPS pots and servo-balanced I/Os with 1/4" TRS and gold-plated XLR connectors complement the new design.

    Whether you’re recording, mixing or mastering, the COMPOSER PRO-XL MDX2600 gives you total dynamic control. It includes all of the features you would expect from a reference class compressor—plus a voice-adaptive de-esser, a new dynamic enhancer, authentic tube emulation and much more. These are some of the indispensable tools for producing clean, consistent audio with virtually no loss in signal quality.

    Behringer MDX2600 Features

    • Switchable IKA (Interactive Knee Adaptation) program-adaptive compression circuitry combines the advantages of hard-knee and soft-knee characteristics
    • Integrated de-esser with switchable male/female voice recognition removes excessive sibilance from your vocal tracks
    • IGC (Interactive Gain Control) peak limiting circuitry combines clipper and program limiter for reliable and inaudible protection against signal peaks
    • Switchable dynamic enhancer for brilliant, lively audio even with heavy compression
    • IRC (Interactive Ratio Control) expander/gate circuitry for virtually inaudible noise suppression
    • Switchable tube simulation for the extra warmth and transparency of classic tube circuitry
    • Automatically or manually adjustable attack and release times
    • Switchable low contour filter prevents "pumping" due to low-frequency dominated compression
    • Stereo couple function with independent output level settings
    • Switchable side chain input with side chain monitor function
    • Ultra low-noise 4580 operational amplifiers and state-of-the-art THAT® VCA's
