The ACOM2 2-Channel Compressor / Limiter / Gate from Alto is a powerful dynamic processor with several circuit designs. It features smart and fast recognition of the source material, an adjustable Expander/Gate, and a low-distortion VCA (Voltage Control Amplifier). It is comprised of 2 full-featured compressors in one compact, ultra-low-noise rack unit to give you maximum clarity and smooth level control for any pro audio application. You can use the ACOM2 as 2 individual mono processors or link the processors to provide true-stereo compression. All it takes is the push of a button to switch between mono and stereo.

The ACOM2's intelligent attack and release switch can automatically adjust the unit’s attack and release to the source signal, or you can use the manual mode for tailored adjustment. Its minimized signal path and high-quality VCA provide optimal temperature stability, low noise, and minimal distortion.

The ACOM2’s Expander / Gate also gives you all the controls you need to suppress or block out unwanted noise. The sidechain function allows for external effects loops or other common compressor applications such as ducking. A second, internal sidechain employs a switchable low-cut filter to help control pumping due to heavy low-frequency content. The ACOM2 offers smooth and consistent performance that doesn’t degrade or color your signal.
