Teletronix LA-3A Audio Leveler
Teletronix® LA-3A Classic Audio Leveler
very very good
i like this olugin
... on drums and guitar - love it!
Great on acoustic guitars and lead vocals
Smooth on acoustic guitars and brings lead vocal to the front of your mix.
Smooth, clean, & accurate
From what I know of the original hardware unit, this plugin is pretty dang true to form. Gets that classic LA compression & limiting with a clean and clear, FET sound. Great for leveling out vocals or limiting a bass track to sit in the mix and is capable of everything from crushing compression to subtle peak reduction.
Only thing better then the uad plugin is the real thing.
estou usando muito e plenamente satisfeito com essa aquisição!
I don't use this plugin all the time, but there are often sources that I know I just need LA-3A - and there it is. This is kind a workhorse, but with character. Before this plugin I could get the same result but I had to dig into some of my compressors, and this one is just make my work faster and esier!
Great transparent compressor
This is awesome, very useful for controlling peaks without any pumping or other effects, top for transparent compression and very easy to use, love It!
Everything I Want in Compression
To start, I like compression to be simple. I'm not interested in complex envelopes. I want to make adjustments quickly and intuitively, and if something's not right, change the comp or change the instrument/performance. This one is just that. Quick. Easy. It usually works, but if it doesn't dial in quickly, then I swap in something else. And for that reason, it's my go-to-default.
Also, for my money, it's close enough to the real thing that I'll never need to buy another "Real" unit... until G.A.S. kicks in, but that's a different problem to solve. ;)
Use it all the time
I really like LA 3A
Top plugin on my kick drums
LA-3A is REALLY nice
Using it on my drums
BUT I kind of prefer the LA-2A a bit more
As it says on the tin!
Amazing tool for levelling out peaks and troffs. Another excellent emulation and a key tool for tracking and mixing.
Just like the pro’s told me!
The pros said the LA-3A works great on electric guitars. They were absolutely right. Not sure why I took so long to purchase this unit. Don’t waste your time with other compressors for electric or acoustic guitars. Get yourself one today!
very transparent and usefull -
a lot of times I want to use copm/limiter and regret due to the additional characteristics that influence the sound 2 much. the L3A is like looking in a mirror. WYSIWYG with additional soft warmth.
The advantage is that there is no color.
"Compression without color" can be easily used for various tracks while having a sense of saturation. The advantage is that there is no color.
LA-3A has a natural compression and does not change the balance of each instrument or the mutual groove relationship.
Compared to that, the LA-2A has an impressive sound of the tube, so the track used is conspicuous. We both want to have.
I use it toglue a guitars grp. But I'm sure it would be great for snare as well and other things.
Smooth those curves! Superb at pushing sounds through the mix.
This is a very good product. Surprisingly versatile. I use it a lot on guitars.
Ah! That Tone!
Worked like magic immediately I placed it onto my vocal chain, everything just came alive. Since then it's been set as a default plugin on my console. Oh! And the presets are also awesome. Combined with the Neve 1073 and the Struder Tape plugins... 7th Heaven!
