Presonus ACP 88 - 8 Channel Compressor and Gate on 2U

DORA Music, 23.03.2010
This unit has everything you need to compress drums, bass, all instruments, but also vocals. The attack and release times can be adjusted both manually and automatically (keys "Auto" or "Soft") and react quickly, which is especially necessary with the drums. The gate also works reliably, it can also be adjusted with regard to Threshold as well as Attack and Release.

The sound is really convincing; You do not notice - as with cheap devices - that the sound suddenly becomes duller and worse. The front panel is clear and logical; It contains despite space lack (the device has only 2 HU) also a 6-times LED display of the level reduction for each channel.

What I do not like, however, are two things:

1. The controls feel somewhat "delicate" and fragile, they are not as robust as you would have liked with a live device. Be careful!

2. The controls are too far apart; Fine adjustment is therefore not possible at all - for example, a further latching of the threshold controller equals 2 flashing LEDs more to compression.

If you can handle these two minus points, however, you get a very good working 8-channel compressor / gate on only 2 height units by relatively little money.

Excellent value for money

PWolf, 20.05.2011
This device provides an almost indispensable complement to consoles that mostly do not have compressors and gates.
In a very compact format, we have the essentials.
Auto mode is well thought out and practical
The instructions are very well done
The leds are well designed to allow to visualize what one does (thresholds, rates etc)
Given the number of large channels, it is almost always on hand without reconnection.
Beware, however, of the silent adepts: the device is ventilated by the flanks
Air inlet on one side of the other with the small noise of the fan in the low register.
If it is incorporated into a well-filled rack, the noise will be more discreet than if it is placed on a shelf.
