It's the piece of equipment that helped PreSonus get established as a leading signal processing manufacturer.
The ACP88 from PreSonus is a great, classic analog compressor with 8 fully shapable channels for you to work with. On each channel you'll find controls for threshold, attack, ratio, release, and gain. You'll also find a switchable 'auto attack' as well as a 'soft' switch. Additionally, each channel as a Gate which can be manipulated using threshold, attack, and release controls so you can fully control your compressor. There are independent bypass controls so you check each signal with and without the effects of the compressor. You are able to keep track of levels thanks to the 6-segment LED meter that is on each channel. From getting vocals that cut through the mix to making sure your drum cymbals don't get too overwhelming, the ACP88 compressor is a great unit that comes ready to solve a host of audio problems in both studio and live situations.
