Hey dude, if the 'all knowing compressor review god' or EF Hutton speaks, I WILL listen. I tried a rack mounted Alesis 2 channel compressor once and it was so complicated (and my hearing is so bad) that I gave up on it. Having only one button (Comp) to adjust is the ticket for me. I like it already!
