Compressor/Gate/Limiter with Tube Emulation

Looking for a multi-tool for stage and studio? The Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600 Compressor is a dual-channel compressor/limiter/expander ready to take on your biggest challenges. The expander increases signal presence and energy, while the compressor minimizes peaks without loss of high frequencies. The switchable Interactive Knee Adaptation (IKA) in the MDX2600 combines the advantages of hard and soft-knee compressors. The integrated de-esser has switchable male/female voice recognition to remove excess sibilance. You can combine both channels for stereo operation, and also turn on the side chain input for monitoring. Switchable tube emulation lets you add warmth to your tracks.

Excellent Sound Compression

I am using the Behringer Composer Pro-XL MDX2600 with my FM station. All audio hits this great compressor/limiter before being chained into the FM transmitter. The result is a smooth sounding signal without pops and over-modulation. It takes the untamed audio from the computer, turntables, tape deck, and the microphone and controls it the way I want; the way it should be to the listener's ears.


My studio has a lot of analog going on in it, we have an 88-input console so we can insert lots of signal processing. Four 1176 and a couple of LA2a do the majority of compressor heavy lifting but occasionally we need a compressor on a stereo channel and these Behringer Composer Pro MDX2600 do the job better than any other budget piece. I really like the metering on these, where other units give you a multipurpose display that must be switched to do the job, these have dedicated meters for gain-reduction and output level. This unit has XLR and 1/4" inputs and outputs so it works in any connection situation. I don't use the gate or other special features like "enhance" in my situation but it's nice to know there is extra there. One of my Composer Pro's is over 10 years old and still working great. I have four of them now. A great piece of gear for an incredible bargain price. Good music to all!

COMPletly Blown Away!

Composer Pro-XL 2600 exceeded expectations. Using it in a club to control band inputs into the house system and simultaneously controlling the level of the outdoor patio system. No more blown speakers. Would definitely recommend.

Great Sound for very little Cash! Behringer always pleases!

This makes the second Composer Pro-XL MDX2600 from Behringer that I've purchased -- not because anything went wrong with the first one, NO... Because I couldn't get enough of the first one and wanted to add a second one for a new studio buildout I was completing. Behringer's products are top-notch quality and they stand behind their products. This Compressor/Limiter/Gate has so many features packed into the 1 RU space it takes up that you'll feel like you bought a C/L/G costing much, much more! They're easy to setup and very reliable! You won't regret buying this box!
