    I Am A Believer!

    by D. Young. 5 out of 5 stars

    I've used quite a few LA-2A's in my day and I was super skeptical when purchasing this plugin.... It didn't take long before i saw its core power! This compressor became my permanent compressor for my vocal chain when tracking/mixing in the box. Male, Female, low voice, a high nasally voice, it doesn't matter! UA made the compressors like virtual tanks!( And not a DSP hog like other units are.) *thumbs up* , Cheers!

    Musical and smooth.

    by B. Bulmer . 5 out of 5 stars

    Many of the UA emulations I can test against the real deal. But when it comes to Pultec and Fairchild gear I can't say the same thing. Having said that I love the combination of either of the Fairchild compressors followed by Pultec EQ. I use an Apollo quad and recently my go to single chain is the UA 610 Pre, Fairchild 670 Comp then into a Pultec EQ. So Musical and smooth.

    Smooth without the Hassle of Tubes

    by R. Trias . 5 out of 5 stars

    UAD has done it again - I assume that MK. III of this plug-in collection will simply be them shipping the hardware straight to your door.

    Lots of great presets

    by D. Miller . 5 out of 5 stars

    I think this plug-in is awesome, plenty of knobs to tinker with, and comes with a lot of good and interesting presets. I found the two drum presets a great starting point on a bus or directly on the track.

    Teletronix La-2A Classic Collection

    by C. Garges . 5 out of 5 stars

    I'm particular about optical compressors. I love the original LA2A and the LA3A, but I have yet to be excited about any of the "clones" or other types of optical compressors that I've used. I've found the Legacy version of the LA2A to be surprisingly useful. When I finally got around to demoing the Classic Collection, I was REALLY blown away. All three of the units have unique characteristics that make each one useful, but the sound of the silverface LA2A makes the package worth the purchase price. This version of the LA2A is so much closer to the sound of the original units that I've used than any of the hardware clones I've heard. This was an easy purchase for me and I've used the Classic LA2As on every mix I've done since I bought it.

    Teletronix LA-2A Classic Leveler Collection

    by P. Martin . 5 out of 5 stars

    I was finished with a session at the end of the day, before I purchased. After installation, I went back to the project I had been working on and tried these out on several different things in one of the tunes. On bass guitar, vocals and acoustic guitar they all were "jaw dropping." I have used the hardware versions many times through the years, and was so happy to know that I could get the same sound without having to fork over several thousand dollars, not to mention maintaining such wonderful hardware pieces. I think you would be happy to have these in your arsenal.

    love it...

    by D. Powell . 5 out of 5 stars

    I remember when it came it reading a review that it wasn't as exciting as the Fairchild updated plugs, etc....... but I have to disagree. I have used it for many applications at this point and it just excelled at all of them..... basically has sounded great no matter what I use it for, just as you would expect the real vintage hardware items to sound.... so, I'm very happy and once again heading into "how can I live without it" mode....

    Slow & sexy

    by N. Palmer . 5 out of 5 stars

    Far superior to the legacy version, these three emulations are a superb tool for bass, brass sections, drum buses - I haven't had the opportunity to try them on vocals yet.
    I find the emphasis control critical for the correct response. I'm working on a lot of retro music & they seem to really capture the vibe. True I've never owned the originals but I'm loving these compressors. Be careful not to drive them too hard though as they can easily bring in unwanted distortion. If you like John Barry, Morricine etc then you'll love these beauties!

    Teletronix

    Great update.
    Significant sound improvement compared to the legacy version.
    Unfair price-ing to existing users.

    It sounds the same...

    by J. Boydstun . 5 out of 5 stars

    The same as my thousands in hardware I used to have!! I got all the new collections of the classics and I honestly think they're do everything I always grabbed them for in the real world. Love this UA system. I missed letting my studio go when I retired, but now I have it all back, for a lot less...LOL

    Don\'t be fooled by free!

    by J. Chilcott . 5 out of 5 stars

    I decided to give RealVerb Pro a go on a drum track, as I wanted a "wooden" drum room for a track with some carpeting for dampening. When I applied it to the drum track, my first reaction was "WHOA!". It sounded expensive to me, and it was very easy to add some heft into the kick with it. I highly recommend giving it a shot in a few tracks. This will probably be my main room/hall verb from now on.

    CS-1 extremely useful for me!

    by N. Ascher . 5 out of 5 stars

    I love this plug. Not many channel strips have a delay component. I use the individual parts quite often (especially the DM-1L as an easy to use delay). I really like the reflector, a very useful tool. Compressor works pretty well and the eq can yield good results if you take some time with it. Overall, a very solid offering using only a little DSP for the best price – FREE.

    1176 AE Great compressor on Bass and drums

    by S. Tib . 5 out of 5 stars

    Since I read that the daft punk used a lot the 1176 and LA2-A Hardware for their last Album Random access memory, I wanted to get the similar vibe with some air space and live feel on a disco track.
    I used the 1176 AE mainly on bass and Drums, it adds some depth, warmth, space, air, a little bit of pleasant noise and space (similar to a natural subtle reverb or some analog hardware breath).
    I wasn't really impressed by the the 1176 LN or SE but when I tried the 1176 AE, I understood why so many studio are using it. It just works so nicely I can only recommend you to test it and forget the LN and SE version.
    On bass I combine it to the LA2-A + pulteq EQ-1A + Bx Saturator
    On Drums, I combine it with the pulteq EQ-1A + Bx Saturator

    All-In-One Fix!

    by C. Kohl . 5 out of 5 stars

    The CS-1 came to me as a free channel strip plug-in. I have never been a major fan of full channel strip pugs, but I have caught myself using this several times when a track needs a little of everything. The interface is easy to use as well.
