Add parallel compression to the Alesis Strike Module

Parallel compression is often used in mixing to bring up the overall volume and sustain of a drum kit, while maintaining the punch from the transients. Typically, the Snare, Bass, and Toms are run into the compression, while Overheads and Hi Hat are not.

The Strike Pro Module already has the capability to send each voice to an FX in a wet/dry configuration. If Alesis added a compressor (with threshold, ratio, attack, release, and gain settings) to the FX list, we could create parallel compression for the non-cymbal instruments relatively easily.

Note, this is different than compressing an individual drum, which applies the effect to 100% of the signal. Parallel compression allows the blending of uncompressed and compressed signal for the best of both worlds.
