    ok ive had preamp and compressor problems in the past
    thanks everyone for all the help on that.

    ok well i have an alesis 3630, and its givin me a number of problems
    and im guessing this a common, easy problem since im new to compressors/limiters.

    its cuttin off my vocals and giving me that "breathing/huffing" effect.
    now thats when i put my output up.

    why do i put my output up? because if i dont, it wont pick up the signal.

    so ya can u help me on this with a solution and presets to my alesis compressor if im an average rapper?

    Hi....does this device have a Noise Gate? If so...bypass it/turn it off.

    From your description, it would seem you have your gate Threshold set way too high....reduce the Threshold or turn it off altogether.
  5. i second that.
