I've used the Alesis 3630 compressor/limiter in the studio since 2002...
Alesis was in the digital reverb and drum machine business back in the 1980's when they made their first units and I immediately became a fan of their hardware. I owned ADAT's so as soon as it was available, I bought the Alesis 3630 and used it in the studio regularly. I found it to be very useful and great sounding. I used it for everything from bass, drums, guitar, and voice to stereo mix down. I think everything Alesis makes has been great.
my first compressor with sidechain
ince its introduction, the 3630 Compressor™ has become the most popular dynamics processor ever made. The reason is easy to understand: it provides two independent full-featured compressor/ limiters in one rack space while offering excellent sonic quality for any application from studio recording to live sound or broadcast. The 3630 offers Ratio, Threshold, Attack and Decay controls to customize its compression response for even the toughest signals. You can also choose between RMS and Peak compression styles, plus Hard and Soft Knee dynamic curves for every application from subtle gain control to in-your-face punch. As an independent dual-channel compressor, the 3630 offers separate controls for two different source signals. Plus, two fully independent gates with threshold and rate controls allow you to easily and efficiently stifle unwanted ambient noise. Other advanced dynamics processing features such as precise signal metering, a sidechain for keying or ducking effects and stereo linkable operation make the 3630 the most powerful compressor in its class.
BRilliant for some quick affordable compression
This product is brilliant, there are numerous websites telling you how you can basically change this into a dbx compressor with some higher quality parts with a bit of DIY however these websites also tell you that after a certain point in the production of these they did this change for you, which is what i have, it is assumed that this is what daft punk did to their model where it got its frame, simple and easy to use.
