    Product Description

    The Behringer MDX4600 4-channel expander/gate/compressor/peak limiter is better than ever with a new dynamic enhancer and low contour filter. It's a completely re-engineered dynamics processor, in which proven and reliable circuitry is coupled with clever innovation. Features include an interactive IDE enhancer, which restores high frequencies lost during heavy compression, stereo coupling, switchable hard bypass, and IKA (Interactive Knee Adaptation), which provides a combination of hard and soft knee compression. The switchable low contour filter prevents pumping due to low frequency dominated compression. Interactive Gain and Ratio control make for ultra-musical compression - with total control. The MDX4600 has XLR and 1/4 inch TRS inputs and outputs.

    The MULTICOM PRO-XL MDX4600 gives you four channels of first-class dynamic control in a single rack space. With a multitude of new features like the advanced program-adaptive expander gate, extensive metering plus a variety of configuration options, the MULTICOM PRO-XL puts a lot of dynamic processing power in your rack.
