Multichannel Compressor/Limiter
Old 10th October 2008
Gear Nut

Not sure why so much harshing of the Alto CLE 8.0. I'm using 3 of them to do exactly what the OP is wanting. As long as you don't bang the snot out of them, they are absolutely transparent. All I want out of them is a bit of dynamic control as I record to DAW in a live environment. As the OP said, burn it and it's over. They give you control over the most important parameters (threshold, attack, release, etc). The only complaint I have is that as I have gotten older my eyes are pissing me off. There are a lot of knobs packed into a very compact 2U box and I have to put my glasses on to see what the hell I'm doing! Those rack mount gooseneck lights are worth their weight in gold when trying to record a band in some dark smoky bar.
