The manual states that this is because the limiter was designed to be “more musically useful”, which is a little difficult to comprehend.

User reviews: Alesis MICRO LIMITER – Audiofanzine

What can I say? The latest additions to the series are three effects boxes: The first box to come under scrutiny was the noise gate. Can you imagine what it all can give!

To finish then, I would recommend both the Micro Gate and Micro Limiter to anyone with serious aspirations but with limited cash. The Output control is provided so that you can easily match levels after the limiting process. Gear in this article: I tested the Micro Enhancer on a number of sources: But nothing really tangible that you could say ‘Yes, there’s definitely a psychoacoustic enhancer in there. As for the manual in French, it is trspdagogique, trsdtaill real physics course!

The state of the gate is determined from three LEDs on the front panel: Is my hearing at all impaired? This limiter provides a powerful and warm. Even when the input signal is below that limit, it can be compressed so that for every four decibel rise in the input signal apesis output will only rise by, say, two decibels.


Also, the Alesis effects boxes are definitely of a sturdier construction than the RCL Strange omission in a studio quality product. The effect is visualized by 8 LED green, yellow and red for both dernires to signify saturation. Searchable archive of old, out-of-print music production magazines.

Sound On Sound – Mar The Alesis gate proved very simple to become acquainted with. However, the problem of silent switching reared its ugly head yet again. This mmicro very sad on units of this quality. Sort by most recent most useful.

Review by David Hughes. Also, since each box is powered from its own external transformer, if you’re using all three devices as I was for the purpose of this review, then you’ve got to have another three mains sockets to plug them into, which is quite tiresome if your studio already has a serious wiring problem.

The Threshold pot sets the transition point of the gate from open to closed; the Delay control allows you to set the time taken for the gate to close after the signal has fallen below the threshold level; and the Rate control sets the rate of closure of the gate. It just doesn’t do limoter to justify the expense. The ‘noise gate’ is a simple technique that mutes the output stage of the audio path when the signal drops below a predetermined level so, although the ‘snaps’, ‘crackles’ and ‘pops’ are still there, the noise gate mutes them during the quiet passages of your music and, consequently, they are micr as obvious.


The first product in the Micro series was the bit Microverb which, like its larger forebears, produces lijiter studio quality digital reverb at a truly affordable price.

This similarity can be a little confusing if you’re trying to read the front panel settings from the other side of the studio. Hopefully, Alesis will do the right thing and provide a single adaptor with a number of outputs to power multiple units. Well, I don’t believe that my hearing is at all impaired, other than the natural wear-and-tear one might expect for a 26 year-old pair of lug ‘oles.

Previous article in this issue: I reserved my judgement of the third addition to the Alesis Micro range until last.

We understand when ds, that this instrument is the specialist in tonn, but in contrast, trs intuitive, IDAL is for musicians like me who do not want to take the head!
