The latest addition to the 10 Series product line, the dbx 1074 quad gate, is the perfect companion to the 1066 and 1046. The 1074 offers 4 channels of gating with threshold, depth and release controls on each channel. The 1074, like the rest of the products in dbx 10 Series, is based on the legendary dbx V2 VCA and offers XLR inputs and outputs, and 1/4” side-chain input. In addition to an external key input per channel, the 1074 also has an internal filter that can be independently activated and controlled on a channel-per-channel basis. This filter allows the 1074 to not only clean up tracks, but gives you frequency selective control on each gate, to open exactly when you want it to.

These features combined, make the dbx 1074 quad gate an absolute must for those who require quad gating on applications including: Gating dry and percussive sounds such as snare drum and kick drum,gating sounds that have longer decay times such as cymbals and Pianos, gating hum or buzz from live instruments or recorded tracks or eliminating Headphone leakage into microphones. Gating instrument microphones to eliminate amplifier bleed. From the company that has been redefining the standard of signal processing for more than 30 years, dbx® Professional Products comes a bulletproof product that caters to the scrutinizing needs of those who require the precision noise gating capabilities.

Once again, the engineering staff at dbx® Professional Products have taken technology that has been over three decades in the making and have created a product that is flexible, versatile and rock solid in construction design. The 1074’s independent channel design with key filtering capabilities make it the perfect tool for countless applications. When you’re cleaning up tracks in the studio or perfecting your live sound, you want to focus on your craft, not your hardware. Found in studios everywhere, dbx compressors, limiters, and gates are both easy to use and reliable. Built with flexibility and versatility in mind, dbx compressors, limiters, and gates enhance the quality of your performance without slowing you down.
