Teletronix® LA-2A Classic Leveler Collection
Teletronix® LA-2A Leveler Collection
Man... I used to think the Legacy LA2A was great, but this is a whole different thing. These sound pretty damn analog to me. Love them!
Very cool compressors
Each version of LA-2A has its own sound. Very good for vocal. Excellent value!
A great up upgrade to a very good plugin.
I do Audio Post Production for the film and television industry. I liked using the original LA-2A from the Analog Classics bundle on Dialogue tracks just to smooth everything out. I tried out this upgrade and fell in love with the original LA-2. I love the slow attack, it's very transparent, adds great character and warmth that I didn't get with the original Analog Classics version. Sometimes, when composing music I like the use the LA-2 just for the gain knob on synths and samples. I love the character and the smoothness. This is a great upgrade.
Makes a classic more versatile
An improved model of the harmonic character of a studio classic. The different versions offer different time constants for a bit of fine tuning for any particular source.
The emphasis screw is a great addition to tailoring the plugin to a stubborn sound.
I actually like the smaller GUI from the legacy versions, since they take up less screen space and there's just no need to have them be this big; it's not like it's actual hardware that needs room for transformers and tubes. but that's not a big deal.
What they say is true
It really is true, these are so nice on vocals and acoustic instruments. It's crazy how just putting them in a channel instantly makes stuff sound better. Great work UA!
I have two hardware La2a's, I can't tell the difference between the software and hardware; they both sound fantastic at all times on the appropriate instrument/voice. My only complaint....I love to feel the real thing, virtual knobs are not very exciting, I suspect that's just an old man thing!!!! The same review applies to the 1176 software I purchased at the same time.
Pretty Great Tool Kit
Pretty Great Tool Kit
Just the right stuff !!!
Love to use these compressors on vocals drums and ambient sounds
best mojo there is, With leveling qualities.
One of the Greats
The LA-2A collection is a great addition to my arsenal. What a fabulous tool for vocals. Not to mention, the LA-2A is one of my go-to's when I'm looking to add a little character and snap to a rock snare drum. I cannot say anything too terrible about the 1176 collection, as it's one of my favorite collections as well, but the LA-2A set gives it a run for its money... And for the money, this is a killer plugin series and a must have!
As close as possible to the real thing, I'm really excited when I produce with this compressor.
You can not compare to other compressors on the market.
So much better than the legacy version,punchy and warm.i love it.
Silver -rules! -It has that grip of Your vocal sound.
Great!! They got be better than the previous !!
I was a fan of LA2A and after purchasing this bundle I was even more impressed !!! The LA2A Grey is superb!
A Swiss-army like plug-in
This plug-in is eat at giving a smooth feel at almost anything you throw at it, and each of the three LA2As has it's unique character. There's actually a lot to deal with. I'm still getting my feet wet on this, but I'm having a lot of fun in the process.
Love this classic LA2A tone!!!
Although I've never used an hardware unit, after spending some time with this UAD La2a collection I understand why they are so sought after. I can lamp down on a vocal with this and it really helps it level out and move to the front. And the lush tone it gives decreases the need for eq in some cases.
Also dig what it can do for bass. Evens it out and can add just the right gritt a track may be calling for. Becoming a go to piece for me.
Great and Artistic
I like the color a of these three plugs
I like to try different compression levels and different sounds
Good for vocal, for bass and snare !
Great Job !
Great la2a recreation
This is a stunning piece of software. You can't make that comp sound bad on anything.
Although the original version never really inspired me, the demos of the new collection piqued my curiosity. After activating the trial, it was clear that these represented a real improvement and I found several applications where they really seemed to shine. I am amazed at the results on group background vocals, as well as their usefulness on male lead vocal tracks.
For lack of a better term, the "vibe" element is present in this collection, in spades. Very easy to apply, with quick, usable results. Highly recommended.
Even better than the Legacy...
I own both the legacy version and now the classic version....All I can say is WOW
they sound great on everything! Well worth the investment :)
I was (am still) very happy with the legacy version, so I held out on upgrading, but when I finally did, I was blown away! 3 different flavours of my fave compressor (4 counting the legacy version) - I'm in opto heaven!
