COMPOSER PRO-XL MDX2600 V2
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!
Audio Dynamics Toolkit
THere 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)
Revolutionary Tube Simulation
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!
