    Default External Compressors

    Hey all!!!

    Just tossing around an idea for a technique to use live in my sets. Basically what I'm looking for at this stage is an external version of the compressor found by default in Ableton Live. I need a (preferably small) portable compressor with side-chaining ability. I've already looked and used Behringers and it's a little.. giant.

    Anyone know of something?

    Nicest little "portable" box I can think of off the top of my head.

    The Alesis 3632 will probably do the job, and is only 1U high.

    You'll probably need 2 post EQ FX sends to make it work though, what mixer are you using?

    haven't decided yet! Would you have any input there? I'm open to damn near anything.

    I did, this was a general question.

    I would post in the gear specific section, but I seem to get very little feedback there.
