    Good but more subtle than the 1176 updates

    by G. Piazza . 4 out of 5 stars

    These are not the breakthrough plugins the new 1176 collection is. They are good, but the two early models are a bit dark, laggy and almost muddy. There is variety, but less useful variety than the 1176 collection.

    The Silver is good, but it is not far from the earlier LA2a plugin. The differences are somwewhat subtle. A little thicker and a tad slower. The Limiter mode is better; more useful than the original plugin and more like the Hardware - this is the real winner.

    I've only worked with the Silver hardware, so I can't comment on how the other two hardware units sound - probably dark, laggy and a tad muddy! They were early 50's units after all!

    A very subtle compressor when compared to the 1176 in my opinion. Two knobs and a couple of switches, how much more minimalist can you get. Truly analog sound qualities. I Love this and all the UA plugins I own, I dont think im ever going to use a cracked plugin again.

    LA2A collection

    by B. Grotto . 4 out of 5 stars

    I'm probably one of the only recordists/mixers on the planet who doesn't think the LA2A is amongst the greatest compressors ever. I've just never been taken with them. This collection does a very fine job of capturing the various units' characters (although, I've never used an original LA2 so I can't speak with authority on that particular box), and makes short work of bass and vocal compression. Fun tip: a buddy of mine suggested I try it out on drum buss, and I was very pleasantly surprised. Give it a shot some time.

    Very nice plugin

    by H. Zhang . 4 out of 5 stars

    Very good plug-in
    Can almost more than any imitation LA2A plugin,
    Sound is very full, injected with Analog to color
    Especially low-frequency elastic, is unable to find the other plug-ins.
    I use the OS 10.8.5 ProTools10

    great upgrade

    by E. Pouliot . 4 out of 5 stars

    This new la2a makes me think that we are now very, very, very, close to the analog sound with these plugins!

    good upgrade

    by A. Carozzo . 4 out of 5 stars

    I was using the legacy la2a; I can definitely tell that the sound quality of this release is far superior; the compression curves are more usable; and the three different versions has their own use. Tried them on bass and voice and wow, that sound that i was searchin for...there is some creaminess that the legacy was lacking; and at estreme settings they are very usable; more 3D sounding even slamming at -20db...good job

    Upgrade

    by M. Panagaris . 4 out of 5 stars

    Definitely worth the upgrade from the original and having 3 models to choose from is an added bonus.

    Analog goodness!

    by X. Marques . 4 out of 5 stars

    I'm really happy with my new LA-2's! The warmth in the sound is second to none!
    Even if you just use it for its gain, it adds something to the sound that glues it in the mix.

    Possibly the best analog sound?

    by R. Andersen . 4 out of 5 stars

    Been a pleasure experiencing the remodelling of the collection. It has provided great warmth to my mixes and been used in every mix application. It's a little taxing on the UAD, but just need more power!

    Work well.

    by P. Effamy . 4 out of 5 stars

    After the awful compressors Logic has to offer, these actually do their job well. Can be quite un-noticeable when doing their job which is pretty impressive. Some colour towards brightness a fair bit, for us the basic LA-2A was the most transparent.

    Used in nearly every mix!

    by A. Thapar . 4 out of 5 stars

    Great Plugins

    These plugs are great, I already have the 1176 but I love the simplicity of the LA2A.

    Amazing results

    by T. Garrett . 4 out of 5 stars

    I was so happy to see this for a discount of 149.00 and then I was sadden by finding out that both, this collection and the 1176 collection were both priced even lower the next day, that they were only 99.00 for users who already and the two compressors. I wish I could get credited 49 bucks so I can add the rest and have that 1176 collection too. Oh well. TeamUniversalAudio all the way.

    Another useful plugin

    by J. Kline . 4 out of 5 stars

    Another really useful one to add presence and warmth to acoustic guitar and vocal tracks. It's transparent and subtle if you want it to be. Nice!

    La2a Impressions

    by C. Irschick . 4 out of 5 stars

    This plugin really sounds like the original which I'm quite familiar with. I even measured the distortion with an AP analyser and found the plugin to be a highly accurate rendition of an old model that I have. Also I love the addition of the very rare La2. It has a longer release which really suits certain situations. I don't love the fact that the default setting is not unity gain.

    LA-2 review.

    by M. Berg . 4 out of 5 stars

    I have'nt had much time to test all these great compressors but have used the LA-2 on my drum group channel.
    I'm very pleased with the focus, punch and presence this plugin added. Now onto the rest of the collection, 'looking forward to that...

    I gave four stars, just to leave room for a mix control feature!

    I would also commend UA on the great price of $149.00 for previous LA-2A users, Thank You :).

    Mauri Berg.

    sounds great!

    by M. Boltz . 4 out of 5 stars

    Love the la2. The emulations are close to the real thing. While I don't think software will ever beat the grab and sound of hardware these are really good for a software emulation.
