Applied to many of my tracks!
The Teletronix LA-3A Classic Audio Leveler is indispensable
Above all, the drums add Dymnamics and purity

Go to for bass DI
I use this on every bass (even vst bass sounds). It helps just smooth things out when you go light on it or you can even get tones from it when squashing just like the hardware. This is not like other software compressors that when you go hard it sucks the life out of your source. On the contrary it helps breathe life into a lot of my tracks and helps give them a liveliness that is often missed in the digital world.
Great plug in
Great plug in
I use it everywhere.
Delicate and powerful at the same time!
My go to vocal compressor
Nothing sounds like this leveler to me, just an incredible warmth and punch. I have other fine sounding compressors from UAD including the LA 2A, and 1176, themselves fine sounding plugs, however this is the one I prefer on my vocal tracks.
Great punchy compressor
Has the simplicity of the LA-2A's interface with the punch of the 1176. Can't beat that combo.
Very Good Plugin
Love this Make my Strat sound great
My new favourite compressor
It provides punch and bite at the same time as warmth, perfect for a jazz guitar album I am mixing.
Pushes heavy guitars into new dimensions. Don't sleep on this one.
The sound and response is very distinct when compared to other emulations and the improved GUI is very welcomed.
Excellent as the original hardware and everything of UAudio !
Legendary.... Must to have ! i'd only like a big resize !
A great big portable studio in my Mac !
By the time and waiting the right promotion i will buy everything of UAudio!
The 3A is an essential flavor in any compression arsenal. I overlooked this thing for so long in both the physical and software domain. it truly does have a different flavor and sweet spots compared to the 2A. A great little plugin that shines in its own way and uses next to no dsp
Too Small, Not Resizeable
I was stoked to get this compressor, but I found the display to be incredibly small as soon as I tried putting it on a track. It's small enough to make using it frustrating. I'm using a 2018 macbook pro 15" running Catalina. My vision is not an issue as I'm in my early 20's and my sight is far above average. If UA can or has fixed this issue, I'll happily update my review. This is not a review of the accuracy of UA's LA-3A Plugin, but about the user experience. I love my Apollo, Cheers!
My go to for guitars
I used the hardware for both electric and acoustic guitar, surprise surprise the plugin works a lot better with nearly an infinite amount of them. This should be one of your first buys when jumping on the platform.
One of my new favorites
Easy. Simple. Dynamic! Especially a great choice on a serial compression chain. Well done UAD!
For Bass, guitars very well done, one thing Universal audio ,more zise flexibility GUI please..
I had a lot years with the hardware and I can say this is pretty damn close. Love the way you can push it. My only crack on it is the interface is so damn small for my old eyes. Glad there isn't much going on.
