Alesis Micro Limiter
The units all have the same basic appearance, three rotary potentiometers and an effects bypass switch. This should not cast the RCL in an unfavourable light.
I reserved my judgement of the third addition to the Alesis Micro range until last. The release deuxime potentiomtre, middle Determines the time taken by the compressor to recover the original gain in the threshold-dea.
As with all early attempts at polyphony, my string synthesizer was based on simple electronic organ technology and involved alesjs enormous number of connections in a wiring ‘loom’. Are they the Accessit range of the Eighties? Finally the output right will catch the loss level, due to compression, and a db can trs bad! I liked the stereo option a lot, it simplified the treatments a great deal.
I tested the Micro Enhancer on a number of sources: Certainly, there was a change; not a great change but a very subtle one. It’s just that, to my ears, the Alesis units sounded cleaner and were stereo rather than mono.

As for the manual in French, it is trspdagogique, trsdtaill real physics course! They really are good quality and excellent value.
To compare the Alesis gate with the Boss equivalent, I used an old string synthesizer which I custom built in my University days. At a time when I’m attempting to cut down on the number of leads that invariably get too muddled to sort out properly, having three extra leads dangling in mifro way is no joke.
However, if money is a problem, I would find it very hard to recommend the Micro Enhancer.

However, where the Alesis unit really shone was in the fact that it is a stereo unit and this meant that I could treat both left and right outputs of the instrument from the same box and maintain channel separation. This method of controlling the noise gate worked very well.
All user reviews for the Alesis MICRO LIMITER
Both units proved to be extremely easy to use and their effect on the recording process more than justified the small sum spent on either unit. Sadly, the Boss gate is strictly monaural.
Both the Boss and Alesis devices proved to be extremely useful in this application and the string synth was, in fact, almost usable again.
Beehiving is always present, it’s just that it tends to stand out more when the instrument is supposed to be silent, ie. I hope Alesis rectify the problem before the devices get into bulk production.
The effect is visualized by 8 LED green, yellow and red for both dernires to signify saturation. The control functions are as follows: It just doesn’t do enough to justify the expense.
