The best for vocals!

By Tyler Matty

from Phoenix , Arizona

Comments about Teletronix LA-2A Leveling Amplifier:

When it comes to vocals, this is the best compressor out there. It sounds great on anything, but if you want your vocals to pack a punch and cut through the mix, this thing will do the job! I love this machine, once you record with one you will never want to record without it.
Simple and easy, you get two knobs, Input and Gain Reduction.
Great quality, the studio I work at has two thats been sitting there working for almost 20 years!

THE sound

By Fester Spunk

from Carmel, NY

Comments about Teletronix LA-2A Leveling Amplifier:

I've been working in the recording industry for almost 30 years, and I have never been happy in a single recording session that did not involve AT LEAST one of these machines. It seriously is that important to an excellent vocal sound, kick drum energy, and electric guitar. When available, I'll use every LA2A in the room on a session. Fat, Sweet, and oh so simple. Yes, their expensive, but indispensable.
