dbx Professional Products is now shipping the new DriveRack 4800 System Processor. As the next generation in the critically acclaimed line of dbx DriveRack processors, the DriveRack 4800 provides versatility, sonic excellence and intuitive control for live performance applications.

Featuring all the familiar processing functions and a host of new algorithms--including selectable DSP inserts on the inputs and outputs, a wealth of EQ, Delay, classic dbx Compression and Limiting, Bandpass and Crossover Filters--the DriveRack 4800 supplies the front-of-house (FOH) engineer, monitor engineer and/or system technician with all the necessary processing tools for any live sound reinforcement situation. The unit's 96 kHz processing engine and standard digital I/O further extends frequency response and reduces latency, while an optional CobraNet card enhances the versatility. Besides processing and flexibility, the DriveRack 4800 is designed for easy, efficient use, with a color display to speed manual operation and two-button navigation between all processing functions. The 4800 incorporates Harman Professional's HiQnet protocol; the HiQnet control backbone is able to monitor and control signal routing as well as the processing of multiple DriveRack 4800 units from various locations via standard Ethernet equipment including routers and wireless access points. HiQnet control extends to the new HiQnet System Architect configuration and control software application, which provides user assignable signal routing and control groups along with customized control panels so a system can be made as sophisticated or simple as desired. System Architect supplies complete manipulation capability of not just the DriveRack 4800 but also any other HiQnet-enabled Harman Professional product, such as Crown I-Tech amplifiers, JBL DrivePack loaded speakers, AKG WMS 4000 wireless microphones and the Studer Vista 8 mixing console.
