Overview

Teletronix® LA-3A Classic Audio Leveler Plug-In

Signature Solid State Electro-Optical Compressor In Powered Plug-In Format

The LA-3A Classic Audio Leveler made its debut at the 1969 NY AES show, and marked the departure from the tube design of the Teletronix LA-2A. The LA-3A incorporated components and design concepts from the Putnam-designed 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, giving the LA-3A its own distinctive sound. This plug-in provides the same unique compression character and solid mid-range — capable of moving sounds right to the front of your speakers — that make its analog counterpart a favorite among audio professionals everywhere.

Immediately embraced as a studio workhorse, the LA-3A is still widely used today. Engineers and producers the world over favor the LA-3A for its unique compression characteristics and sonic signature. Modeled from a unit in UA’s vintage collection, our digital emulation of the LA-3A faithfully captures the hardware’s sound, working magic on vocals, guitars and drums.

  • The Glitch Mob

    “The UAD LA-3A plug-in is one of our favorite sound design tools and we frequently use it to destroy reverb tails for interesting atmospheric effects.”

    Eli Crews

    (Electronic Musician)

    "If you don’t already own a UAD system, UA is definitely making it harder to resist with each top-notch plug."

    Computer Music

    (Computer Music UK)

    "With plug-ins like this [the LA-3A], the UAD platform is looking tastier all the time."

    Geoff Sanoff

    (Pro Sound News)

    “The LA-3A [plug-in] pumps well, gives the drums a nice, propulsive energy, maintains sonic detail & more low-mid weight."

    LA3A Rocks!!!
    by G. Manuel(Tuesday 14 June, 2016)

    This software stands up to all the LA2 and 1176 plugins I have and it has a similar sound to my LA4 hardware units which have always been my go to limiters for vocals. It's definitely a bargain at the price and I have to recommend it to anyone needing more limiting power. Read More

    So full of life!
    by B. Dyczkowski(Monday 29 February, 2016)

    `This compressor is incredible. when A/B'd with Waves CLA-3A, it just has so much more energy and harmonics to it. You can smash your vocals or guitars through it and it has a slight mid boost that lets them sit on top of the mix nicely. One of my favourites! Read More
