Cn't believe it's a plug-in!

I recently got into the UAD product line with a Quad Custom card. The first plugs I tried were the LA-2A collection.
These really are amazing!
I've used a lot of hardware outboard compression, and I have a couple of racks full in my studio, so I was very keen to see how these plugs would hold their own against my valve outboard. I have to say I was very impressed. When patching in real analogue hardware, often the sound just gets 'better' or 'bigger' before you even start tweaking the settings, and the same is true of these LA-2As. When a-b'ing between a UAD LA-2A on one channel and a real analogue Retro Instruments 176 on the other, the comparison was quite stunning - the software really held its own!!
A must buy!

Each version of the LA-2A on offer has it's own unique character, which work well in different scenarios. One thing remains consistent throughout - they all sound awesome. I tend to use for dynamic levelling as something towards the end of a chain. I can get a lot of level whilst still maintaining punch and transients. Gives a lot of weight and depth as well. A great all rounder for dynamics!

Teletronix ® LA-2A Classic Collection Leveler

Teletronix ® LA-2A Classic Collection Leveler is easy to love. Incredibly determined compressors, with wonderful characteristics. Pleasure to use them.

The Indispensable LA2A!

I really like that classic LA2A sound and now I have the different versions as well. Vocals get even and gain body and weight. Vintage...Yes of course! Not a transparent compressor, but that is why you choose LA2A. Outstanding Vocal compressor; Bass always gets the LA2A-sauce. And the 3 versions bring their own character to the table. UA really copied the hardware very well it in this new LA2A collection. Indispensable in every mix!!!

What can I say that hasn't already been said? The LA-2A collection is digital with heart and soul, these sound gorgeous on just about anything you can throw at them. Demo them right now if you haven't already and see what all the fuss is about.

Fantastic Emulation

Having used the originals in the 80's I can truly say that this plug-in captures the full LA-2A vibe, right down to the distortion when its pushed hard.

Take this, the 1071 input, and maybe the 1081 eq and strap them in the console app and you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic on vocals or really any full-range source.

LA-2A collection review

I've been using the LA2A collection for nearly a year now I believe and have really implemented it as part of my main dynamic control tools.

Favorite applications:
1. Leave vocals - 1176 with slow attack, fast release followed by the LA2A grey getting about 2-3 db of compression on the high spots.
2. Drum Overheads - tames harsh cymbals and pulls everything in together.
3. Bass - Typically with bass, Ill stack the LA2A first and get maybe 2-3 db on the high spots, then add another compressor (often 1176) behind the LA2A to give a slightly more constant compression.

I typically prefer the Grey and Silver models, but each has its own vibe Also really love the emphasis control. This is a MUST when used on vocals.

Loving these comps

Amazing sound and value, buy this!

As soon as I tried out the LA-2A collection demo, I had to have it. It really sweetens every vocal I've tried it on, and having three LA-2A's to pick from depending on the sound I'm looking for is just incredible. Combine this with the 1176 collection and your vocal chain will sound first class. I can't believe that I now have the sound of this legendary hardware in my DAW for this kind of money.

Works like an instrument and becomes part of the mix. I've tried other LA-2A Clones and Similar Plugs, and this collection, particularly "The Silver" has become a go to and in every mix.

Another choir boy...

This plugin collection hardly needs another glowing review to convince potential buyers at this point. That being said I am very pleased.

actually flexible

Between the 3, you have a lot of options. If you want to keep it fast, keep the gain reduction low.

You can also use LA3A beforehand it it gets pushed back too far.

Superb compression

I love the LA-2A's. They sound amazing on vocals and horns, and one of my favorite things to do is run the Silver and Grey models in series for extra color and even more gourmet leveling possibilities!

"My Go-To" Vocal Compressor

Previously using Logic Pro 9 native plugs to compress my vocals, I would often have to work very hard to employ serial or parallel compression techniques, fiddling with the settings until I could get my vocal to sound good on its own, let alone within the mix. The LA-2A plug's simple settings and distinct and sought after "coloration" allows me to spend more time focusing mix overall, rather than fussing over the vocals. Use the LA-2A when you need your compression to be "transparent" with a just a little added warmth.

LA-2A Collection

Love these!!! Especially the LA-2 and the warmth you get just by putting it in the chain.

Well worth the price of admission. All of the revisions have their own unique set of characteristics. Great purchase!

Had it for 2 weeks and already using the grey edition on almost every single track I produce. Warms things up amazingly, and works surprisingly great on bass!

Another must have in the engineer's toolbox

The new LA-2A Collection is another beauty from UA, great work! The plug-ins give you instant gratification during mixing with various subtle flavors to choose from. The LA-2A Collection is another must have in the engineer's toolbox. As all the more life-like emulations demand more and more processing power, all we need now is a daisy-chainable Thunderbolt UAD DUO-DECA (12 DSP) card...

Perfect for multi-takes or comping

When doing multiple takes audio tends to sound slightly different from each other, especially with vocalists.

The worst is when they take a sip of that water, instant brightness.

The LA-2 with its super slow release fixes all this.

Simply (seriously simple to use) amazing.

Beautiful Hardware

This software version of the Leveler is so faithful to the original. I am so glad that I purchased it.
