The dlM sixtyfive is a vintage-style, Soft-Knee RMS Compressor, inspired by the dbx® 165A
, a classic 1970's compressor found in many studios, but adding some new twists. The RMS detection and soft-knee help to give a smooth and musical compression experience, the non-linear response imparts character and the gentle saturation brings colour and warmth. Your dlM sixtyfive will deliver compression from gentle smoothing of vocal performances to brutal slamming of your drum buss. Enjoy!
