Extensive compressor reviews and FAQ

ART SC2: This is one of my oldest reviews. I apologize for how short and lacking in detail it is. At some point I may buy another SC2/CS2 and write a better review.
 
This is a two-channel line-level rack unit. As far I can determine it is identical to their "CS2". It has no low-end rolloff, but the highs are a tad muted. The noise level is higher than I'd like, but not terrible. The compression is adequate, with only minor artifacts, and the tone is neutral. The gate chops hard, but at least it doesn't chatter. I would say this one is better for bass than the Alesis 3630, but not nearly as good as the Behringer MDX1600.
 
Price in USD: used $20 to $70, no longer available new.
