dbx® 160 Compressor / Limiter
great for some vocals
I've had a lot of luck using this plugin on vocals that start out harsh. Warms it up nicely.
Been a big fan of my hardware VU's for a while. Nice to finally have a plug in that keeps up with the real things. Great job UA!
Great easy to use compressor
Not having owned the hardware version, when I saw the UA DBX160 I wondered if I needed another compressor. Well, turns out I did. It is used on 90% of my mixes in various places. Obviously simple to use, but it sounds great as well. Perfect for bass guitar duties - quick and EASY. Dial it up until it sounds good, ignore the meter, and you are good to go.
Never worked with the hardware but this thing sounds amazing...u just have to try it for urself. Like all the UAD emulations, this compressor adds flavours and reacts amazing.
Great compressor! Luv it on various sources from srums to vocals
Don't know the original that well. However the unit works extremely welll on bassguitar and double bass to keep the low end steady in the mix, without sounding to artificial or loose credibility.
My go to Vocal comp
My old college studio (20 years ago) had one of these so I had a lot of time with one. I love this comp. The UAD plug is my go to vocal comp. Wonderful warmth with great midrange clarity.
nice drum sound!
i used snare,kick,top
and guitar compression!
I have used on all my mix, sound exelente.
I love it...
Sounds just like my hardware units! Couldn't ask for any better!
Excellent for drum tracks, groups or as an effective tool!
Snappier on drums, some times too much, but I liked it enough on some pieces.
Some times too jumpy though, got too to be wise.

surprising as the original, great, designe excellent, stable, precise, the best product on the market, as always Uad Top!
My new (yet old) Fav!!!!
The demo lasted 30 seconds and it was an immediate purchase. I love this... Warm, Punchy, Vintage. Thank you UA for making life so fun!
DBX 160 Rocks
I always loved the sound of these on electric instruments, especially bass amps or guitars and once gin the UA plugin captured the original to a T.
dbx 160 - that's what I was missing
First day I downloaded the compressor I put it on the kick and bass guitar. I found a preset for each as a starting point and dialed them in to taste. That was it, that was what I was missing from my mixes. Things never seemed quite right before. I'd get close but something was always missing. It put the biggest smile on my face! What more can I say, great job UA.
dbx 160VU review
Great Plug-in, really close to the actual unit. FAR too expensive tho, as are almost all the UAD plug-ins.
Best compressor for snare
This is the best software compressor what i have used for snare and kick.
dbx 160 Compressor
Amazing plug-in, smooth and transparent sound.
The dbx® 160 became my comp. to go for drums....it is present in all my mixes since I've got it.
It also sounds amazing for parallel compression!
If you haven`t tryed yet, you should!
