PreSonus ACP88 8-Channel Compressor Limiter
Working in live settings presents an interesting conundrum to engineers looking to add compression or limiting to the mix because what’s good for one element is not necessarily what every audio source needs. Enter the PreSonus ACP88, a unit that not only acts as a compressor, limiter, and gate effect, but also employs eight separate channels in order to do so. Each channel can be linked to the other channels in any order; link groups are also able to be created. Having eight separate compressor/limiter and gate settings in one single unit doesn’t just provide precision to the individual sounds running through the unit, but it also eliminates space in the rig that would otherwise be dedicated to housing separate units. Bright LED lights are another reason why this unit is a clear winner for those operating in a live environment.
