The ACL 2 from Alto is a dual channel compressor/limiter/gate with a dedicated enhancer section on each channel. The unit features several innovative circuit designs with one providing automatic attack and release times for the compressor, using smart and fast recognition of the program material.
An adjustable expander/gate, and very low distortion Voltage Control Amplifier (VCA) deliver smooth sound, while the enhancer section replaces high frequencies lost due to heavy compression. LED meters on each channel display gain reduction.
- Dual channel compressor/limiter/gate with enhancer section
- Includes auto attack and release times based on input signal analysis
- Also includes user adjustable attack and release times for full manual control
- Smart Ratio Control expander adjusts the expansion depending on the input signal so that signals slightly above the noise floor level get the major benefits
- Smart Gain Control peak limiter activates above a certain user adjustable threshold to radically restrict signal peaks
- Dynamic enhancer section renews any high frequencies lost through the compression process
- Gain reduction LEDs
- Bypass switches on both channels
