Hi Gearslutz

i want to get a compressor, im going to use it mainly with my microphone just after the preamp and before my audio interface.
it'll be used for vocals mostly (rapping....singing.....maybe a couple knocks & bangs here and there)

anyway

i got low budget £100 or less(preferable less)
i have these in mind
Alesis 3630 (a mates got one but i havent used it)
Behringer MDX2600 (shop keeper favours it over the Alesis, my college has them but i havent used it, well not how i would at home)
Presonus comp16 (shop keeper recommended it, but i think i want complete controls)
dbx 266xl (its in da price range, i heard the 166xl was good but out of my budget)


so errm! help, please

[i've also posted this thread in another forum, but this one may be more fitting???]

i'd second that to,
but its £195.99

i forgot to note that the main reason for the compressor is to control the signal a bit and stop the signal from clipping, without having to turn down the preamp to much, losing a hot signal,
i rarely think i'd be pushing it to an extreme or using it for anything else, because i probably have better plugins on my PC DAW
