This is very simple dynamic processor from Alesis company. It has only three controls -input(also a compression amount control),release,and In , Alesis Studio Electronics, and associates put on the market a range of effects and processors numriques, called MICRO SERIES. The Alesis MICRO LIMITER is a true stereo in/stereo out compressor/limiter which is used for automatic gain riding, peak limiting, and special effects on both live.

All user reviews for the Alesis MICRO LIMITER
The release deuxime potentiomtre, middle Determines the time taken by the compressor to recover the original gain in the threshold-dea.
Is the amplifier suspect? Possibly Alesis think that it is more ‘musically useful’ to have the device permanently connected and to only use the bypass switch for setting-up purposes?
Hopefully, Alesis will do the right thing and provide a single adaptor with a number of outputs to power micdo units.
Today, Alesis has released a similar range, from 14 modules composs plastic pice euros: A ‘noise gate’ is basically a means of electronically ‘masking out’ the general background noise that tends to be generated by all types of electronic equipment.
As with all early attempts at polyphony, my string synthesizer was based on simple electronic organ technology and involved an enormous number of connections in a wiring ‘loom’.

This machine was the ideal test-bed for the noise gate. Both the Boss and Alesis devices proved to be extremely useful in this application and the string synth was, in fact, almost usable again. This pre-amp with auxiliary input-output, is a multi-dot effect, the SEthe signal that comes from eight kinds reoit Sampler of S and some analog synths cheap, like the proton and the Evolver And not a change that we could all agree on.
Our members also liked: The limitation of this micr series I parat most advanced The first product in the Micro series was the bit Microverb which, like its larger forebears, produces real studio quality digital reverb at a truly affordable price. I reserved my limlter of the third addition to the Alesis Micro range until last. The LEDs on the front micrp indicate this wonderfully.
Sadly, the Boss gate is strictly monaural. Operation of the Micro Limiter proved to be a little alesiss at first, since its control pots don’t immediately function in the manner I expected.
However, the subject of this review is the recent additions to their range of studio quality effects units, a,esis aptly named ‘Micro’ series. I liked the stereo option a lot, it simplified the treatments a great deal. However, the problem of silent switching reared its ugly head yet again.
The Threshold pot sets the transition point of the gate from open to closed; the Delay control allows you to set the time taken for the gate to close after the signal has fallen below the threshold level; and the Rate control sets the rate of ilmiter of the gate.
Also, the Alesis effects boxes are definitely of a sturdier micto than the RCL You can send us a note about this article, or let us know of a problem – select the type from the menu above. I hope Alesis rectify the problem before the devices get into bulk production. This is mifro compression ratio of 2: Subscribe to our free newsletter Subscribe.
At a time when I’m attempting to cut down on the number of leads that invariably get too muddled to sort out properly, having three extra leads dangling in the way is no joke.
Every musician eventually learns about the problems caused by noisy leads and devices such as chorus pedals, etc.
The Output control is provided so that you can easily match levels after the limiting process. If you value this resource, you can support this project – it really helps! The first box to come under scrutiny was the noise gate. I would have thought that silent, electronic switching would be essential on an effects unit which purports to be ‘studio quality’. I do have limitr reservations, however.
The manual states that this is because the limiter was designed to be “more musically useful”, which is a little difficult to comprehend.
The ‘limiter’ effectively puts a lid on the level of a signal. Simple, basic and robust, these instruments are emerging as a bit limited, especially lmiter If you’re like me and have a neighbour whose idea of a quiet Sunday afternoon is to spend two hours sanding the front door with the Black and Decker he got for Christmas, then a noise gate is essential if you’re to cover up all of the kicro annoyances such as ‘spikes’ on the mains supply that tend mucro make your recordings sound like an advert for a well-known breakfast cereal.
The state of the gate is determined from three LEDs on the front panel: This method of controlling the noise gate worked very well.

Personally, the separate mains adaptor is a minor annoyance. It just doesn’t do enough to justify the expense. Not satisfied with those reviews?
