Manufacturer Description

The LA-3A Classic Audio Leveler combines customized UA transformers as well as design hints from the 1176LN with the T4 electro-optical attenuator of the LA-2A to make its own special compression features as well as sonic signature. The original LA-3A marked the departure from the tube style of the Teletronix LA-2A. Right away welcomed as a studio workhorse-- offering in the shelf of the remote truck made use of to tape-record Knight in shining armor & The Reformation's Purple Rainfall as well as employed for double-duty throughout the audio and blending of Justin Townes Earle's Midnight At The Movies as examples-- the LA-3A remains a fave of engineers as well as manufacturers worldwide to this day.

Our UA Classics reissue of the LA-3A carefully preserves all the interior and also exterior premiums of the initial: The exact same straightforward control set up, and the T4 electro-optical attenuator, which is the source of the LA-3A's program dependent compression. It even retains the 2RU half-rack design, and comes total with a single-unit rack assembly-- no extra kit is needed. All the original rear board links and also controls are even sustained, while the commonly performed "LA-3A gain mod" is added as an added change for optimum studio convenience.
