    nate, look for an older Boss CL-50, Pro-series, from the 80s, nice looking black face. It's a half-rack unit with all the good controls(threshold, attack, release, input and output gain controls, etc.) and also has level meter and a nice adjustable noise gate and a remote jack to footswitch it. It's awesome and lean, clean , clean.
    It's nice and probably very over-looked unit.

    Any one else got one?

    I have an Alesis Nano Compressor. It is a 1/3 rack space and all parameters are adjustable and true bypass. I have only used mine a couple times but it does the job. It is also new for under $100. I found mine used for $50.
