Alesis Now Shipping 3632 Compressor, A New Dual Compressor, Limiter And Gate

New Alesis compressor set to expand the legacy of the iconic 3630.

Cumberland, R.I. (Oct. 5, 2011) – Alesis, a leading manufacturer of professional audio electronics and musical instruments, announces the immediate availability of the 3632 Compressor, a dual-channel compressor, limiter, and gate unit.

The Alesis 3630 Compressor™ is the most popular dynamics processor ever made. Its successor, the 3632 Compressor, builds on the 3630’s popular design and features. The single rack-space unit provides two independent, fully featured compressor and limiter units with excellent sonic quality for any application from studio recording to live sound or broadcast.

The 3632’s compressor attack and release times can be automatically set dependent on the source material, or full manual control can be exercised. The unit can function as either two separate processors, or 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 continues the Alesis tradition of delivering professional quality sound control at an unbeatable value,” said Dan Radin, Product Manager, Alesis. “The next-generation Alesis compressor delivers the performance of the legendary 3630, plus the choice of automatic and manual control of key parameters.”

The 3632 Compressor is available now from musical instrument and pro audio retailers.
