I answered an ad for this pile of gear even tho I have some version of most of it. I mean, who buys gear they dont really need, right?
The money shot was the 3BX, but in a field check it came up dead. The rest of the gear passed a preliminary check, so it all came home cheap.
What I have is
DBX 110 Subharmonic
DBX 120 Subharmonic
DBX 119 Compander
DBX 400 Shwitcher
DBX 224 noise reduction
Teac AN-80 dolby
What I need advice on is the 119, and I know at least Cory has one he has worked on recently. I sort of expected it to have a similar sound/ effect in the expansion mode as my working 3BX expander, but it just sounds choppy when I run the expansion level up. The compression might be ok, but again I am not hearing anything like I would expect. What is the effect that this little box is supposed to give me, say, as compared to the 3BX?
Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong??
