This plugin comes free when you buy your duo and yeah it sounds okay I wasn't super impressed but then again I don't have much experience with it either I'm pretty new to LA2A style but I opened UA's new updated version and they blow these older ones out of the water. I don't really see myself using this plugin since I own a LA-610 and I compress on the way in and save my plugin resources so I can use Studer, EMT 140, act but seriously these new LA2A are absolutely amazing! Buy those.
What can i say ? it's an LA2A modeled to perfection ! Works everytime on almost everything. Hit it harder for great color !
My only suggestion to the UA development team is :
I'm one of these guys who build it's own equipment, including a dual LA2A clone.
I put the "limiter response" control on the front panel of my DIY unit and let me tell you, this is something that really opens up new worlds on terms of versatility for an LA2A. It would be genius if you guys add this "feature" to the plugin. Really. This would transform the UAD LA2A into an amazing multitask beast, while making it 100% true to it's analog brother. Until that, my veredict is 4 stars.
Thanks for reading !
Purchased about 3 weeks ago, great simulation, very close to la3a but still a warm sound !
