...what do you mean by remotely key the individual channel compressors?


I think he means use another input as the key to affect the sidechain of a compressor. For instance, make a voice compress a background music channel, or make a kick drum compress a bass line. Ducking, in other words.

Yep, that's what I want. For such a powerful desk it is unusual that the dynamics section is so weak. No auto attack/release, no compressor sidechain, no remote key.

Well if it is ducking you are after, use the INV button on the gate and you can key it.  That will allow you to duck the music under the announcements/speeches.  I don't have a desk in front of me at the moment but that is my understanding of the INV function on the gate.

That's what I thought, too, but then it didn't seem to actually work that way.

Does ANY digital console have a compressor with dbx 160A-style auto mode?

The Profile does, but that's via a plugin.
