    A classic for good reason.

    The LA2A rocks.

    It's amazing on vocals. Amazing on bass. 2 of them on the mix bus sounds heavenly.

    This is probably the single greatest compressor ever designed. No serious studio should be without one.

    It is one of the few "makes everything better" boxes out there. Just running tracks through it with no compression adds vibe.

    I'm in love with this compressor.

    A big Hug

    One good way to describe this compressor is quality!!!! So easy to control and tenderly loves' everything you apply it to; almost as though it's giving your tracks a nice warm hug. I am still in the process of finishing my studio and I couldn't stand it if this nice baby wasn't part of my collection. It wasn't easy making the decision, even though it should have been. I can't believe how many times I kept going back and forth between saying "No, I can't justify the leap" and "yes, I'll regret it if I don't." Turns out the little dude on my right shoulder won. What a winner. I love this Compressor. My tracks are thanking me for it in a big way. If you're thinking of recording in some kind of big way, either now or in the future, there will be no doubt you will gain a lot from buying this compressor. It won't make your tracks sound amazing without the other pro stuff too though so if you're not that serious about recording, perhaps thinking it over a little more might not be such a bad thing.

    Awesome compressor! Warm and transparent sound... Especially on vocals and bass - guitars! From 2003 when I bought it, I never make the record without LA-2A!

    The UA LA-2A is the real deal. It does something special to vocals the moment you plug into it. Its so simple and easy to find the sweet spot. Out of all the pieces I have in my hybrid studio, the LA2A is the king of vocal magic. Get your vocals right and everything else just fits the way you expect. I highly recommend it!

    This is hands down the best Comp for vocals hands down! Gonna buy a 2nd one...
