I'm considering the purchase of one of these units, but I'm curious to know how good the audio quality of the side chain is. I realize this is not an really an issue when the side chain is used in the normal way because it is only affecting the detector circuit. However, when using the "key listen" feature, the high and low pass filters on the side chain in this unit could be used on actual audio -- if the quality is up to snuff.
Has anyone used the side chain filters in this way? If so, do you think the audio was compromised in any way?
Having two channels of gate/expander would be cool enough, but being able to use the filters independently would just be icing on the cake.
Thanks for your comments,
