This by far is one of the best compressors on the planet in real life and in the software world. This is always in my signal chain on both vocals and drums and UA nailed it with this.
I read on the uad page that u can put the la2a after the 1176ln compr. for a really nice vocal chain...and yes....since than i dont do anything else....best setup so far....
even if this plugin is standart when purchasing the uad2 card i can say this is the sh** :-9
What can I say about this awesome plugin that doesn't being said before?, just insert it in any vocal channel and it does its magic, always in a great way.
I have also used it in classical music with great results.
Will never look back on this!
I use this at work to smooth out speech on video interviews - it's such a lifesaver for that. Acts transparently (you don't get obvious pumping effects at moderate reduction levels) but still with a classy sounding body to the result.
Obviously couldn't be any easier to apply, just adjust Peak Reduction to taste, and the compressor acts program-independently so you can rein-in huge chunks of audio without a need to automate changes to not overcook any part of it. Set and forget!
Perhaps that makes me sound lazy, but with lots to get done in a day - it's a workhorse.
The LA-2A is the most simple yet effective way of leveling vocals I have ever encountered! I use this daily.
The LA2A is a legendary compressor/limiter with a very warm sound, and is absolutely fantastic for acoustic guitars, pianos and vocals or anything else where you want to warm up and fatten up the sound. Two knobs are all that's between you and deep, warm, gooey audio bliss.
I gotta be careful with this one.
Did you hear that rumor about that guy who hates La2a's? Well here i am!
Yes it's true, i have always hated this piece of equipment, it's a horrible little box in my opinion.
As always though there is a however.
After hearing a shootout between this and the real one i can honestly say i hate this plugin just as much!
Which is a testement to UA for recreating it so "beautifully"
Jokes aside if you want the features of a La2a then this plug fills those boots almost to perfection.
100% recommended :P
Am I first...? Well, the LA2 sounds fat. Use it mainly for drums and bass, and its a joy to use it every time.
Normally with computerized compressors they sounds bad when they working hard. But this is no the case with LA2 - it sounds good even when it is working hard. Behaves like a good hardware compressor.
This is my favourite compressor.
Sientes el poder de elevar al maximo la seÃ±al RMS y oyes como te pone el sonido
en la cara , ademas del color que aÃ±ade es maravilloso,Ojala algun dia la tenga
en mis manos. IS VERY VERY HOTÂ¡Â¡ jajaja Me encanta
i do update now an ill see /its not in the list of uad plug-ins
Teletronix LA-2A Classic Leveling Amplifier The quality is good though it is a free plug-in that can be used from the beginning.
The LA-2A is an absolute must for my vocal sound! I can't get enough of it! I like to put the 1176 before it just so this compressor doesn't get pushed too hard. You will love what this does to your mix. Trust the reviews!
Back in the days of great Recording facilities,This hardware was the main Limiter -compressor that stood out in every recording studio on the east cost.The sound was so good,I never questioned it.But that was then.Here we are different times new technologies that have made it possible for us to kind of reproduce the same emulations without the hardware factor and with more mobility.The sound is still unbelievable,the plug-in version still does a great job of producing great quality mixes and mastering.This is a Must Have for every Project studio.
This compressor is really nice and easy to apply on. I am mostly working with vocals and that seems to be its sweetspot. Turn up the gain and play around with the Peak reduction and you get a nice steady voice with a nice little flavor a rally like
Really solid emulation of a tried and true piece of analog gear. I like the way it sounds and it's easy to use.
muito bom adoreiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Smoother than the waves version. warmer. nice character and although ive never used the original hardware it feels like it works like it should
It's my most used plugin for mixing, brings anything right in your face in a pleasant musical way. There's so much punch you could blow your speakers packed on this compressor. I've had the chance to try both the analog and UAD version of the Teletronix LA2A and they behave very similar in all aspects, maybe the emulation is a tad more "aggressive sounding" but I don't find it as a limitation. It's very simple to use as there's tons of colors and textures you can get just by tweaking the knobs.
This is my go to Compressor - for more that just vocals and snare - but I mainly use it there.
Very good product
tks you universal audio
You are the best of the best
