Great 500 series tube opto compressor!

vladg, 16.07.2017
I usually split the time I work on mixing sessions onto 2 parts. First part spent mostly in the box using UAD plugins. But for the second part I try to bypass some plugins to avoid overprocessed result and also I replace some plugins with outboard gear. I always replace software LA2A on lead vocal with outboard One LA 500 with great results!

Usually vocal chain contains a lot of plugins but I finally bypass most of them and leave all dynamic processing for One LA 500 hardware insert only. The tube section of One LA 500 has nice natural saturation effect, which suppresses fast transients while opto compression tames overall dynamics.

Besides vocals this 500 series module works great on bass guitar too. One LA 500 is very quiet (noise level is much less than you?d expect from tube gear) and I didn?t have any overheat problems (often experienced with tube gear) too.

I owned an LA 2A about twenty years ago, and the One LA gets that vibe! I love it. The first one I got was faulty, but Thomann's no hassle return policy put a new one in my hands in no time. Sounds fantastic on vocals. acoustic guitars, and bass. Highly recommended!
