3630 Compressor chain madness

    I wanted to bounce this idea off any other Alesis "dirty six dirty" users out there (or any dual channel compressor)

    My idea was to use one channel of the compressor to pack my SansAmp Bass Driver DI. I have some call for a very hard clipped almost square wave sound which the Sansamp does well when it's packed to the max from the bass. Nice and buzzy.

    I'd like to then run the signal back to the OTHER compressor channel to set up some "punch"; some soft knee compression so I get a nice thumpy attack before the compressor clamps down.

    Anyone else doing this kind of "double compression"? Any problems with it?
