With this new dynamics processor from the PRO-XL series you have acquired an extremely powerful and universal compressor which unites in one compact device all of those dynamics control functions that are most frequently used in practice: each channel has an independent compressor/limiter, expander/gate and peak limiter. Thus, virtually all dynamics processing problems can be remedied with little effort. Future-oriented BEHRINGER technology The new PRO-XL dynamics processors from BEHRINGER feature several innovative circuit designs, making them topclass dynamics processing equipment. Compared to their predecessors, they now have improvements such as the de-esser, which allows you to effectively suppress disturbing hiss noise (COMPOSERPRO-XL), additional LED displays to set the de-esser levels, plus a switchable enhancer. The AUTOCOM PRO-XL not only includes an enhancer, but also a switchable de-esser and a peak limiter, which has already proved its versatility in the COMPOSER PRO. The BEHRINGER MULTICOM PRO-XL has been upgraded with an expander/noise gate plus enhancer. Additionally, we have managed to improve its audio properties even furtherin combination with a revised circuit design. To give you the best operational reliability possible, we manufacture our products in accordance with the highest quality standards known in the industry. Additionally the dynamic processors are manufactured under ISO9000 certified management system.

First, this manual describes the terminology used, so that you understand the unit and its functions. Please read the manual carefully and keep it for future reference.
1.1 Before you get started

1.1.1 Shipment

Your COMPOSER PRO-XL, AUTOCOM PRO-XL or MULTICOM PRO-XL was carefully packed at the factory and the packaging is designed to protect the unit from rough handling. Nevertheless, we recommend that you carefully examine the packaging and its contents for any signs of physical damage which may have occurred during transit.
If the unit is damaged, please do NOT return it to BEHRINGER, but notify your dealer and the shipping company immediately. Otherwise, claims for damage or replacement may not be granted.

1.1.2 Initial operation

Be sure that there is enough space around the unit for cooling and, to avoid overheating, please do not place it on power amplifiers, near radiators etc.
Before you connect the unit to the mains, please make sure that the voltage setting on the unit matches the local voltage:
The fuse holder at the AC power connector has 3 triangular markings. Two of these three triangles are aligned with one another. The unit is set to the voltage shown next to these markings and can be switched over by turning the fuse holder by 180. IMPORTANT: This does not apply to export models designed exclusively for 115 V operation!
If you set the unit to a different mains voltage, be sure to use a fuse of the correct type and rating. Please refer to the SPECIFICATIONS for details. Blown fuses must be replaced by fuses of the same type and rating! Please refer to the SPECIFICATIONS for details.
The mains connection is made using the enclosed power cord and a standard IEC receptacle. It meets all of the international safety certification requirements.
2.1 The expander/gate section
Please make sure that all units have a proper ground connection. For your own safety, never remove or disable the ground conductor from the unit or of the AC power cord.

1.2 The users manual

This manual has been designed to give you a survey of all control elements and at the same time provide you with detailed information on how to use them. To help you understand what each control does, we have grouped the control elements according to function. If you need more detailed information on specific topics, please visit our website at, where you will find for example explanations of in-detail dynamics applications.
Fig. 2.2: Expander/gate section control elements Use the TRIGGER control in the expander/gate section to determine the threshold below which expansion sets in, so that signals below threshold are reduced in gain. The setting range is from OFF to +10 dB. If a signal below the adjusted value is applied, the red LED (expansion on) lights up. If the signal gain is above the adjusted value, the green LED lights up. In order to adapt the expander/gate optimally to the program material, use the RELEASE switch to select a short or long release time. Percussive material with little or no reverb at all is usually processed with a short release time (switch not pressed). The long release time is the best choice for slowly decaying or heavily reverberated signals (switch pressed). The GATE switch allows you to toggle between the expander (switch not pressed) and the gate function (switch pressed). Use the gate function to mute signals below threshold (e.g. noise). Application hints The purpose of using an expander is usually to expand the usable dynamics towards the lower end, i.e. to improve the separation between low-level signals and the unavoidable noise floor by reducing the noise level. Start setting up the expander by turning the TRIGGER control from position OFF clockwise until the LEDs show the onset of the gain reduction. Preferrably, you should use some music material containing pauses and soft passages, so as to hear whether the beginnings or endings of words are cut off by the expander or are suppressed too much. If necessary, experiment with the release time or reduce the threshold a little bit.
This chapter describes the various control elements of your dynamics processor. All controls are explained in full detail, including useful suggestions on how to use them. The COMPOSER PRO-XL and AUTOCOM PRO-XL feature two identical channels, the MULTICOM PRO-XL four of them.
Fig. 2.1: Linking channels with the COUPLE switch Pressing the COUPLE switch links the channels. In couple mode, dynamics are controlled by using channel 1 switches and controls, whereby the control signal is derived from the energy of both side chain channels (true stereo processing). Therefore, all switches and controls of channel 2 (except for IN/OUT, SC EXT, SC MON, LO CONTOUR, TUBE, DE-ESSER, MALE, ENHANCER, I/O METER switches and OUTPUT, DE-ESSER LEVEL and ENHANCER LEVEL controls) will be disabled when you activate the COUPLE switch. On the MDX4600, channel 3 controls channel 4 in link mode.

Application hints Setting the compressor will be much easier if you first set both limiter and expander to a neutral setting by turning both threshold controls (TRIGGER and LIMITER) to OFF. Setting the compression ratio requires your sense of hearing: Anything goes. In general, however, the ratio setting should not be too high for mix signals; instead, use 2:1 as a starting point to preserve the natural sound of the music; a ratio setting of about 4:1 has proved successful for vocal recordings. The IKA (Interactive Knee Adaptation) characteristic allows you to achieve a gradual and inaudible compression and hence to use higher ratios. If you want to use the compressor as an effect in its own right, dont hesitate to experiment with higher values. Turn the THRESHOLD control counter-clockwise until the GAIN REDUCTION display reads the desired gain reduction (dont exceed 6 - 8 dB for mix signals). During this process the volume is reduced audibly. Now turn the OUTPUT control clockwise until this volume difference has been made up for. The levels of the compressed vs. uncompressed signals can be compared with the INPUT/OUTPUT LEVEL display activated with the I/O METER switch. These two levels should be the same. The AUTO function for the attack and release times provides a program-dependentand largely inaudibledynamics control, which suits most standard applications. If a somewhat more open sound processing profile is required, you can set the attack and release times manually (AUTO switch not pressed). Start with a longer Release time, then make it gradually shorter. You will soon notice an unnatural pumping effect caused by rapidly changing levels. Select a longer release time until the effect cannot be heard any longer. The Attack time setting, too, is highly dependent on the music material. Select longer attack times for a subtle and musical compression. As a result you avoid attack portions of treble signals being cut off if compression is triggered by a high-level bass drum beat that is played at the same time. The sound remains transparent and compact throughout. If the compressor is being used as a limiter, the attack time should be as short as possible. This, in combination with a high ratio (>20:1), a medium to long release time and the maximum possible threshold will protect your sound reinforcement system effectively from getting overloaded. Fig. 2.5: De-esser section control elements From a circuitry point of view, the de-esser is placed in the sidechain path of the compressor, so it will operate only if the compressor is active. LEVEL control (MDX2600). Instead of an adjustable enhancer, the COMPOSER PRO-XL has a controllable deesser, which helps you eliminate hiss noise contained in the audio signal. The LEVEL control determines the amount of frequency suppression. DE-ESSER switch (MDX1600). The AUTOCOM PRO-XL also has a de-esser. At the touch of a button you can enhance the audio signal considerably, especially when processing can be found in the compressor vocal recordings. Switch section. DE-ESSER LEVEL (MDX2600). The LED chain reads the current attenuation within a range from +3 to +12 dB. MALE switch. This switch adapts the de-esser to the male (switch pressed) or female registers (not pressed). IN/OUT switch. Switches the de-esser on and off. ENHANCER switch (MDX2600 and MDX4600). Activates the dynamic enhancer. ENHANCER LEVEL. The LED chain reads the current treble boost within a range from -30 to 0 dB (MDX1600 only). IN/OUT switch (MDX1600). Use this switch to activate the enhancer circuit, e.g. to assess the effect the enhancer has on the audio signal.

2.4 The de-esser section

2.3 The dynamic enhancer section
2.5 The peak limiter section
Fig. 2.4: Dynamic enhancer section control elements The dynamic enhancer circuit implemented in all three dynamic processors allows you to dynamically enhance the treble range. Since the bass portions of a music signal often have the highest energy yield, they usually are the ones that trigger the compression process, thus also reducing the gain of middle to high frequencies. The enhancer controls the compression process and gradually adds more highs, the stronger the treble range is compressed, so as to make up for the subjective loss of high-frequency content. LEVEL control (MDX1600). The AUTOCOM PRO-XL features an adjustable enhancer, on which you can set the amount of treble boost with the LEVEL control. Fig. 2.6: Peak limiter section control elements The peak limiter limits the signal to an adjustable level. When the LIMITER control is turned fully to the right, the limiter is switched off. Owing to its extremely fast zero attack, this circuit is capable of limiting signal peaks without any overshoot. If the signal is limited for more than 20 ms, the overall gain is reduced for about 1 s to avoid strong and thus audible limiter effects.
If you wish to use the peak limiter as a protecting device, the LIMITER control and the OUTPUT control in the compressor section should be set so that the peak limiter responds only rarely or never at all. It should be triggered by peak signals only. To achieve creative sound effects, on the other hand, you can also intentionally drive the peak limiter into this peak limiting range. The LIMIT LED lights up as soon as the limiter is on.
2.6 The rear panel control elements
Fig. 2.9: SIDECHAIN connectors SIDECHAIN SEND. This is the unbalanced sidechain output, which allows you to route the audio signal to other devices for external processing. SIDECHAIN RETURN. The sidechain input allows you to use an external signal or the processed (e.g. with an equalizer) audio signal routed from the SIDECHAIN SEND jack to control your COMPOSER PRO-XL or AUTOCOM PRO-XL.

Fig. 2.7: Power supply and fuse FUSE HOLDER/VOLTAGE SELECTOR. Before connecting the unit to the mains, ensure that the voltage setting matches your local voltage. A blown fuse should only be replaced by a fuse of the same type and rating. Please refer to chapter 6 SPECIFICATIONS for details. MAINS CONNECTION. Use the power cord supplied with the unit to connect it to the mains. Please note the instructions given in chapter 5 INSTALLATION. OUTPUTS. These are the audio outputs of your dynamics processor. The two matching 1/4" TRS and XLR connectors are wired in parallel and balanced. Of course, unbalanced cables can be connected here as well. OPERATING LEVEL switch. This switch can be used to adapt the COMPOSER PRO-XL, AUTOCOM PRO-XL or MULTICOM PRO-XL to various operating levels, i.e. to toggle between home recording level (-10 dBV) and studio level (+4dBu). The level meters will be referenced automatically to the nominal level adjusted, so that the compressor works in its optimum operating range.
A very common type of application is to make the compressor threshold frequency-dependent by inserting a graphic or parametric equalizer into the side-chain path. To be able to keep the threshold setting on the MDX1600 or MDX2600, unwanted frequencies should be cut with an inserted equalizer, without affecting the levels of selected frequencies. For example, to control the compressor from a narrow-band midrange frequency band, we recommend reducing the bass and treble controls on the inserted EQ, while leaving the midrange control set to 0 dB.
3.1 Eliminating interference
Insert an equalizer into the sidechain control path in the following order: SIDECHAIN SEND - equalizer - SIDECHAIN RETURN. Turn the THRESHOLD control to the left until the GAIN REDUCTION meter reads a clearly noticeable gain reduction. Now the equalizer must be set so that all frequencies are reduced in level, except for the interference frequencies. Thus, the interference signal will trigger the compression. Using this technique you can, for example, reduce the dynamics of a bass drum that is too loud in an existing recording. Simply use an equalizer to cut all frequencies above 150 Hz, so that the compression will be triggered by the individual beats of the bass drum.
To monitor the equalizer setting, press the SC MON switch to isolate and play back the processed signal.
Once you have checked the EQ setting, switch off SC MON and adjust the THRESHOLD, so that the compressor responds to the interference signals only.

AUTOCOM PRO-XL MDX1600/COMPOSER PRO-XL MDX2600/MULTICOM PRO-XL MDX4600 3.2 Emphasizing instruments
Conversely, you can also use your COMPOSER PRO-XL or AUTOCOM PRO-XL to highlight solo instruments or vocal tracks acoustically in a less than perfect recording. Please note that in this application only the amplitudes of the selected frequencies should be reduced in level. Compression produces a subjective volume reduction of the entire program material. Only those frequencies selected on the equalizer will cause NO compression and thus they seem to be emphasized acoustically. This inverse type of compression helps you make instruments stand out even in low-level passages. You can also insert the COMPOSER PRO-XL, MULTICOM PRO-XL or AUTOCOM PRO-XL into a sub-group insert (miking of drums!) or to process the mix output of the console (Main Out and/or Main Inserts). Here, too, the processor should be inserted into an insert path, so that you can fade out the overall signal by closing the main faders on the console.
3.3 Time-delayed compression
If you feed the audio signal directly into the SC RETURN input and at the same time route it to the audio input via a delay unit, the dynamics processor will work anticipatorily. With a bit of tweaking you can achieve zero attack effects for specific frequencies. Longer delays produce an effect that is similar to an audio tape being played back in reverse.
3.4 Voice over compression (ducking)
You can use the COMPOSER PRO-XL and AUTOCOM PRO-XL to lower music to a low background level as soon as a speaker speaks into the microphone. In this type of application the compressor section functions like an automatic fader controlled by the speakers microphone, which is also connected to the SC RETURN input via a preamplifier. Music and microphone signal are then mixed with the help of a console. This application is called voice over compression or ducking, and is used frequently in discotheques or radio stations. Fig. 4.2: Compressing a main mix signal with the MDX2600
When you process a stereo mix signal, we recommend that you link the channels in couple mode, because there is no faster and easier way to find the right settings. However, remember to set the output levels separately!

3.5 Triggering additional sounds from a rhythm track
This technique is used to give a rhythm track more punch by synchronizing the rhythm instruments after recording. Only the expander/gate section is required, the compressor and/or peak limiter remain disabled. Insert the bass guitar track into the audio path of the COMPOSER PRO-XL (or AUTOCOM PRO-XL), and route the bass drum to the SC RETURN input. Activate the SC EXT function to trigger the bass guitar with the kick drum, i.e. the kick drum exceeds the expander threshold, allowing the bass guitar signal to pass until the level has dropped below threshold again.
If you wish to use the dynamics processor as part of a P.A. system integrating an active frequency crossover (e.g. BEHRINGER SUPER-X PRO CX2310), you can connect it between the mixing console output and the crossover input, or between the crossover and the power amps. In the latter configuration you can process individual frequency ranges specifically (multi-band compression) to prevent a few highenergy frequencies triggering the compressor to process the entire frequency range. The illustration below shows how to set up this configuration with the BEHRINGER MULTICOM PRO-XL MDX4600.


Dynamics processors are usually inserted into the insert paths of a mixing console, because their signals are not added to the mix (unlike reverb or phaser effects, which are fed into the signal path via the aux busses).

Fig. 4.3: Multi-band compression with the MDX4600


5.1 Rack installation
Each device requires one rack unit for installation in a 19" rack. Please allow an additional 4" of rack depth for the rear panel connectors. Be sure that there is enough air space around the unit for cooling. To avoid overheating, do not place the unit on power amps, for example.

5.2 Audio connections

You will need a large number of cables for the different applications. The illustrations below show the wiring of these cables. Be sure to use only high-grade cables. The audio connections of the MULTICOM PRO-XL, AUTOCOM PRO-XL and COMPOSER PRO-XL are electronically balanced to avoid hum problems. You can, of course, also connect unbalanced devices to the balanced inputs/outputs. Either use mono plugs, or link the ring and shaft on stereo plugs (or pins 1 and 3 in the case of XLR connectors).
