Hi All,

This is my first piece of hardware i've bought, an Alesis 3630 compressor. I'd like to use it on certain channels in logic pro 9.
My interface is a Presonus firestudio project. I've sent the outputs from my interface to the inputs of the 3630, and the outputs of the 3630 to the inputs 7-8 of my interface.

My problem is i can't seem to hear the compressor in logic. I know the compressor is doing it's thing as it's showing gain reduction on the l.e.d's, but i'm confused as to how to get the compressed sound into logic.

Any help would really be appreciated,

It should function if you use it that way.

Have you tried using the inserts on channels one and two? It should show that way easily. You'd just have to rearrange your routing in PT9 a bit.

No I'm not a freaking pilot!! The Air Force won't let me have a suit with a zipper...or sometimes shoestrings.

My advice and suggestions should never be considered advice or suggestions. These are mostly insane ramblings of a poor aircraft mechanic who can, strangely enough, still hear.
