Dual Channel Compressor / Limiter / Gate

Overview

Intelligent compression and dynamics.
The 3632 Compressor is the follow-up to the 3630 Compressor, the most popular dynamics processor ever made. The 3632 Compressor builds on the popular design and features of its predecessor by providing two independent, full-featured compressor/limiters in one compact rack. It delivers superb sonic quality for any application from studio recording to live sound or broadcast.

MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC
With the push of a button the 3632 Compressor's attack and release times can be set to engage automatically depending on the source signal. In this mode, the 3632 applies an optimized amount of compression with no extremes. Want full manual control™ Again, just push a button and you have free reign over the 3632's comprehensive range of parameters. The 3632 Compressor can function as either two individual mono processors, or you can stereo-link them to provide true stereo compression.

GUARD YOUR SOUND
The 3632 Compressor's Expander/Gate keeps unwanted noise out of your sound. When your signal falls below the threshold you've chosen, the Expander/Gate pushes low-level noise down or simply closes the gate depending on the parameters you've dialed in. Deny noise access to your audience or your mix!

At the heart of the 3632 Compressor is its VCA (voltage-controlled amplifier), which offers professional-grade performance in terms of distortion, noise, and temperature stability, making everything you hear smooth and consistent.

The 3632 Compressor's sidechain function on each channel enables you to use it in external effects loops or in other common compressor applications such as ducking: use the sidechain function to trigger compression on a signal when you want it. A second, internal sidechain employs a switchable low-cut filter to help control pumping due to heavy low-frequency content.

With intuitive control layout and bright LED meters that display gain reduction and input/output levels per channel, the 3632 Compressor will give you constant visual feedback. Professional compression is ultimately about the control and delivery of sound, and the 3632 Compressor will make you a master at both.
