LA-3A Classic Audio Leveler Plug-In Demo Video
The original LA-3A Leveling Amplifier, or compressor, made its debut at the 1969 New York AES Show, and marked the departure from the tube design of the Teletronix LA-2A Leveling Amplifier. It offered a new sound in optical gain reduction, with faster attack and release characteristics, that were noticeably different from it’s tube cousin. Universal Audio brings this unique sound to your mixes with the LA-3A Powered Plug-in. UA emulated the electro-optical element, or ELOP, which is the heart and soul of the LA-3A.
