Alesis in Cumberland, R.I., announces the 3632 Compressor ($TBA), a dual-channel compressor, limiter and gate unit. Alesis will unveil the 3632 Compressor at the Frankfurt Musikmesse show, Hall 5.1 Stand #B45, from April 6-9 in Frankfurt, Germany.
The 3632 Compressor succeeds the Alesis 3630 Compressor. The single-rackspace unit provides two independent, fully featured compressor and limiter units promising excellent sonic quality for any application from studio recording to live sound or broadcast.
The 3632’s compressor attack and release times can be set automatically depending on the source material, or full manual control can be exercised. The unit can function as either two separate processors, or it can be stereo-linked to provide true stereo compression. An adjustable expander/gate and very low distortion Voltage Control Amplifiers (VCA) deliver smooth sound.
A sidechain function enables users to place the 3632 Compressor in an external effects loop, while a second, internal sidechain employs a switchable low-cut filter to help control pumping due to heavy low-frequency content. LED meters on each channel display gain reduction and input/output levels.
The 3632 Compressor will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers in Q3 of 2011.
