Mackie ADX100

Model: ADX100
Frequency Conscious Gating, Limiting, and Expansion, Compression

Acknowledged as master of the analogue dynamics processor, Drawmer now brings its expertise in noise gates, expanders and compressor/limiters to the Mackie Digital 8�Bus.

- Left and Right input levels. -15.75dB to +16dB in 0.25dB increments.
- Input VU meters. -42dB to 0dB.
- Faders for quick parameter control. All thresholds and levels are in linear dBs, but other controls are scaled to a user friendly law which minimizes 'fine tuning' and allows a wide range of operation.
- Mem A and Mem B Presets. You can instantly recall two preferred settings.
- Noise Gate. Operates like an audio switch, and is particularly suited to percussive signals, where it can shape the envelope to create a crisp, well defined signal.
- Triggering. Click on to toggle selection of trigger sources. In Stereo mode, the gate can trigger from either the Left or Right channels, a mono signal generated Left + Right or MIDI.
- Envelope Controls. Control the speed at which the Gate opens and closes.
- Gate/Duck switch. When Duck is selected, the operation is reversed, so that when the signal is above threshold, the output is attenuated. Below Threshold, the signal passes un-attenuated.

The ADX100 provides either a Noise Gate or an Expander. Use the Noise Gate to shape the envelopes of percussive signals, such as drums. For vocals or other expressive signals, the Expander may be better suited to the task, since it can track the signal levels instead of simply switching on and off.
