    Lightbulb The DBX 286s - Should every podcaster own one?

    I just posted an article on the front page of the IAIB discussing how important the DBX 286s is for podcasting. What do you guys think? Do you think this is something every serious podcaster should have?

    Love to get your input.

    Here is an audio clip of me using the DBX

    Hi Andrew,

    Great article! Personally I am not a podcaster, but I do work for dbx. I can honestly say most people I talk to who are using the 286s or who are interested in it, are podcasters. Like you mentioned in your article the price point is hard to beat for what you are getting, and any serious podcaster should consider the 286s to get a little more out of their setup.

    Be sure to check http://www.dbxpro.com regularly because we've been known to run special rebates. Also go like our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/dbxpro because over the next ten months we will be making some exciting announcements!

    Thank you for the support.

    Andrew your article put me over the top and I just picked one up. Although I'm not sure how anything can make me sound any better than I already do... Thanks for taking the time to do the recording as it made the difference for me.

    Here's a video Mark Jensen, over at New Media Gear, did on the dbx 286s. Those channel strips are the bomb, cuz they make your voice go "Boom!"

    I use a dbx 166XL. This compressors been great. Use one channel for main vocal mic along with the noise gate. The second channel I use for secondary mic when a guest is in the studio. But now the second channel is normally hooked to the computer audio for things like music and skype calls. That was a problem before, the audio was constantly jumping around, it definitely smoothed things out. Another podcast where I'm co-host, they normally want people to mute their mic if they are not talking. But using the noise gate I don't have too.
