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.

Intend to buy another one!
Your general opinion of this product.
I bought this as a start to a processing chain I am building for a radio station studio. The unit processes the whole mix at the moment. On its own, it provides very predictable compression results with very little "pumping". I have tried using the gate however it is rather un-usable, far too harsh and not a very smooth release. The other features work excellently and as a low-end processor it is ideal for people on a budget. I have driven a very strong signal into it and there is no distortion up until an extreme point. The limiter works well as a brick wall limiter, with virtually no colourisation. I find there is very little self noise. The unit can also be setup to work as an effective AGC if you use the attack and release settings correctly.
