LA-3A ease of use

LA-3A is undoubtedly a fantastic hardware compressor that I highly recommend to professional sound engineers and musicians. It is a true classic tool that offers unique sonic possibilities and exceptional results.

The first thing that impresses about the LA-3A is its sound characteristics. It has a warm and rich sound that adds life and a sense of space to any signal. The LA-3A can transform a simple sound into something more musical and impressive.

Another remarkable aspect of the LA-3A is its ease of use. The compressor has only a few main controls, making it very intuitive even for beginners. You can quickly achieve the desired sound simply by turning the knobs and adjusting the compression levels.

One of the key features of the LA-3A is its fast and musical release. It allows it to naturally process the attack and release of signals while preserving their dynamics and original energy. The results sound very organic and pleasing to the ear.

Furthermore, the LA-3A is known for its durability and reliability. It has been designed and manufactured using high-quality components, and its construction is sturdy. This means that you can rely on the LA-3A during recording, mixing, or mastering, knowing that it won't let you down in the most critical moments.

In conclusion, the LA-3A is a classic hardware compressor that offers superb sound, ease of use, and reliability. It is an indispensable tool for achieving professional sound and adding warmth and energy to recordings. I highly recommend the LA-3A to anyone striving for high-quality audio and seeking reliable equipment for their studio or live performances.

me encanta el color en baterías entre otros instrumentos, también funciona muy bien en la voz, una excelencia al igual que el 2a pero con otro color tipo 1176 con la calidad de compresión de un 2a

A beast

It was love at first sight,i'm using it in every recording session,it adds direction to the instrument wrapped in a subtle saturation.

Far away from the hardware

Far away from the hardware, unfortunately.
I love and use almost all UAD plugins, but this one needs some work.
The attack is so fast, it does not give you the punch nor the harmonics you'd expect from an La-3a. If universal audio were still selling the hardware I would understand this plugin not being very accurate....

Absolutely fantastic

Best option for Vocals

Even if the vocals don't need compression at all, I will put it on the chain to add the rich color that the LA-3A gives.

Great on guitar

My go-to plugin for electric or acoustic guitar. It adds to the attack to make it sound like they are strumming harder while bringing up the subtle between-note sounds.

My new favorite!

I love the sound of a good LA-3A and this plugin doesn’t disappoint! Another really great tool to have in my arsenal. Give it a shot on your drum bus, it’s got a unique flavor!
