Clean, warm or saturated sounds for you to choose

I really like this channel, the preamp section helps me get a warm sound, a saturated sound or a clean sound if I want, I pass my synths and drum machines sounds to it, gives them some character, I like that I can choose the different types of sounds that it can make, the comp section is also nice for some vocals or mics, just some smooth leveling, nice one to have in your stock!

Smooth and warm

Does an outstanding job without breaking the bank. It's all I use on bass now.

Sleeper unit

I have had this for about a year now.
At first I was underwhelmed. The pre does not have an over the top 'TUBE' vibe like some preamps do. It just seems to do it's job without complaints.
However after using it a while I started to notice that it is actually very very good in an unobtrusive way. I simply can not get this pre to sound harsh or strident, but it does not sound dark either.
Did I mention this is good on bass guitar?
I recorded a Stingray with the hiZ input. Very little tweaking and it was one of the better DI recordings I have ever done.
Perfect amount of bite, sizzle and nice fat low end.
Cons, no highpass filter so you have to use the low EQ for that. It would be nice to be able to boost the mid bass and cut sub lows.

Awesome Gear

When Im looking for a more gritty tone the LA-610 is my go to piece of gear, I also love that i can patch into its line level and use the optical compressor. The LA-610 was a great purchase.

This box rocks!

I own a busy recording studio in Chicago, Sonic Palace. We record mainly rock and rap. It's our go to pre and a God send for our studio.
We have other top pres, but the LA-610 sounds the best and all the tools you need are right in front of you. You don't have to patch three separate units in to start recording, just plug in and tweak.
We use it with a U87ai and Blueberry with fantastic results.
Highly recommended, in fact we have and all have been very satisfied.

WELL, That DID'NT work

SO.... Don't buy this and expect it to last.... OR Hold its Resale Value....Sent it to the Canadian repair, Very nice guys, replaced almost everything and NOW, 2 months after the repair, i have the SAME output distortion from JUST the compressor when its in line., NOW, i call Canada rep, then say send to USA for get fixed, that's where its from.... NO, end of story for me.... sorry guys, i expect more out of High end gear... I'm kinda disappointing, I could have Bought a Behringer..It may have lasted longer than 1.5 yrs.... Hope others have better, longer , results....

Sounds Wonderful

i've found this to be a very nice preamp for pretty much anything really, best of all on vocals and drums, cranking the gain sounds great for drums but not so great on much else. It is very nice for clean vocal sounds.

The EQ is great for adding a bit more thump or shine.

The compressor is good for vocals and instruments such as guitar and bass, attack is too fast for drums in my opinion. It does a very good job on most things though and you can bypass the compressor and use another one if you want more punch out of drums.

I make electronic music so generally everything is recorded down one track at a time and since having this every mono track i record goes through this first. I wouldn't mind another one so i can do stereo tracks.

Great preamp

I paid a lot, and I mean a lot of money for this without ever having heard it in person aside from youtube. Yes, it is great! Studio quality preamp, with a real tube sound if you should you wish for that (by adding gain). I would recommend this product for the home studio owner. The compressor is LA2A style, also very good.

Very Pleased

This is a great piece of kit, and my prime channel strip in the studio. Everything sounds better, even cheap mikes. I use it to go into my apollo and then Logic. Can be transparent, or nicely colored - either way, I still get that wonderful analog "sound" that I'm always seeking!
Brill on bass guitars.
Great for electric guitar DI.

I tried this device in my friend's home studio with Neumann M147 Tube on a male vocal... It was a week ago, and today, I ordered LA-610 MKII for my studio! For me, LA-610 is the best channel strip in price level up to 2500$!!
