Behringer MDX-4600 Equipment Setup Tutorial
This tutorial will walk you through how to connect and configure the Behringer MDX-4600 Compressor/Limiter/Gate.
The Behringer MDX-4600 Compressor/Limiter/Gate is the only piece of equipment that I did not put to immediate use. I was immediately overwhelmed by trying to figure out how to set this unit properly. As someone who hates to read owner’s manuals, I simply allowed this to sit and gather dust for months.
When I finally learned how this one piece of equipment could eliminate 100% of the static in the background of my my telephone interviews when my interviewee was not talking, as well as help keep my audio levels from peaking, and make my voice sound a little more “powerful,” I decided I would finally dig in and figure this thing out. After a few hours of reading the description of every function of the unit and how every knob and button on the device affected the audio signal, I finally found the perfect settings that allowed me to do everything that I wanted to do with this unit.
While there are many other Compressor/Limiter/Gate options out there. This is the only one that I’ve taken the time to learn how to set up. As a result, many of my clients end up purchasing this exact unit just so they can copy wiring setup as well as all my knob and button settings. Now, instead of hiring me for my minimum hour of consulting to help you set this up, you can simply buy this video tutorial that I put together that walks you through the entire setup process.
