LA-610 MkII Classic Tube Recording Channel
El LA610MKII es verdaderamente un preamp de base tonal clara, con un color caliente excepcional, trabajo con Api 512c y Vintech 573, la combinación de estos 3 pres marcan la diferencia en una producción de gran embergadura.
LA-610 Mk2..Makes my mic sound like a C800g!
If you sing R&B and want that sound like Babyface, Charlie Wilson, Tyrese, Tank, New Edition, Drew Hill....you get the picture. Then you must get this unit!! I am a singer and always rented studio time to find the right sound...Never tried this until i purchased one used. I had to stop recording just to type this review because I was sooooo pleased and realized my search was over finally. Yes I have had some good pre amps. The 6176 which i loved but had to sale to release my first record...lol The Avalon 737 which the output kept going out on. Even though both units were great, Neither gave me that rich SonyC800g mic sound...yes it makes my STERLING AUDIO mike sound like a Sony C800g... and yes I have recorded on 1 of those.
A must have for vocals
Depending on what Genre you do, it will always be personal preference. For me, Hip-Hop, R&B, and Classical vocals always go through my LA-610 MkII. This channel strip makes any vocal I put through it sound clean, discrete, warm and exceptionally smooth. It is BY FAR the easiest unit I have used to give me the best sound. A little bit of GR (Gain Reduction), drive that pre, put a 1 db+ on the 7k EQ section, and you got a rich sound on any mic.
Must have in every studio.
Great unit with classic UA SOund
There is nothing I don't like about the LA-610 except I only have one. It is great for Vocals,bass,guitars and keys. It is one of my favorite go-to analog devices. What's great about is it is it is easy to use! I love the mic pre and it's impedance switching ability for ribbon mics and instruments and the compressor limiter is awsesome! For the price you can't beat i! Oh! Did Imention Ilove the big vintage knobs!

LA 610 MKII is THE channel strip im using it in my studio almost in all applications.
I love the fat sound of LA 610 preamp and the fantastic bite of its opto compressor.
Really fantastic work on guitars and bass! its making the sound alive and in your face.
Its also a first choice for lead vox when its combined with a condenser or dynamic mic (sm7, cad e 100 first generation, neumann etc)
As a rock singer myself i love the warm fat sound of the lows. It gives such a nice body and gentle highs in all types of voices .
I ve recorded many singers from jazz to hard rock and it sounds really cool to all of them!
The EQ it's a good start before to edit your tracks.
A big thanks to Universal Audio Team!

Absolutly great !
I bought this tube channel a few weeks ago and i love it !
the exact same problem as D. Langemann
I'm so excited to use my new LA610 but the problem is the exact same problem as D. Langemann . It seems that the relay or power supply goes crazy. It flickers and also turns off the tubes. Its unusable.
I bought my unit through music123.com and did not have any response for warranty or at least any attention.
i'd like to know how much would it cost to fix this issue or at least now an aproximate ?
thanks a lot.
LA-610 Mk II ROCKS!!
What else is there to say about this timeless product it has been enhance cosmetically and sonically as well. It's a true Masterpiece!!!t o have in any recording studio regardless of the level of knowlege a musician or engineer has. It just simply works great on any source that is fed to this unit.
Very well built!! thought yet gentle on sound or you can drive it to the limit!!!! A classic must have piece of gear one must have and very affordable as well for what it can do!! Very simple to operate from the get go, the more you use it the better recording output you can obtain from it!!
Thaks to Bill and everyone at Universal Audio for putting out such great products!!!
Keep putting great products out!! Rock On!!!!
I really like this massive and beautifully sounding device!!!
Vocal recording and guitar is now just a pleasure!
The best regards Yuri TovSt'Gun
Amazing channel strip! The EQ is smooth and the compressor is nice! The only thing I could ask for is a couple more of these! Thank you for making these in the USA!!!
How could I lived without the LA-610? I'm a professional Voice Over talent, and if you are serious about your career, you need to invest in it. I just regret not having bought it before.
I'm a luck star, i have two LA-610 MKII, they are my best device, Thanks, UA!!!
Hi its perfect I m very happy with it,but can you tell me please what is the best mic for this preamp?
I cannot say enough about this mic pre/compressor. It has changed the way I record vocals and made the great sounding mics I own sound even better. It truly adds the human warmth back to vocals that digital recording can take away. The EQ points are at the perfect spots for what I do. I have used a lot of other brand units and this is the one I always come back to. This is the only mic pre I use for overdubbing. I wish I had about 7 more.
Amazing. . .put everything you record through the LA-610 MkII. . .I mean everything from mics, to bass, to synths and samplers. Plugins are fantastic but they sound even better on material originally tracked through a quality analog recording channel ala the LA-610 MkII. Never recording again without it!
I've had the LA-610 MK2 for a couple of months now and I can tell you already that it's a studio must have! Vocals sound smooth and musical and it's really easy to find the sweet spot for EQ and compression. Good job UA!
As a A&R in the music business I have come across alot of quality music but the LA-610 MkII Classic Tube has proven to me its very much worth its high end price range it packs a great punch and does what its built for "QUALITY". A++
