Compressors / limiters are used to regulate the gain of a signal. They boost the volume of soft recordings and tame loud ones. Some compressors / limiters are analogue. These units are very popular as they as warmth to the signal, giving it a classic studio sound. Store DJ stocks compressors / limiters from brands including Universal Audio, Behringer, PreSonus and DBX.
Channel Strips are units that combine a number of features. Some of these may include EQ, compression, gating, pre-amplification and valve processing. The idea is that they act in the way a single channel of a large desk would. Channel strips are great for tracking (recording) though, or to use as an external effect and polishing a sound. Store DJ stocks channel strips from brands such as Universal Audio and PreSonus.
