For the serious project studio looking to get the UA sonic experience, the LA-610 MkII offers tone, quality and character at an accessible price. The LA-610 MkII is based on the legendary console modules developed by Bill Putnam in the 60's. Noted for their musical character and warmth, innumerous classics by artists ranging from Sinatra to Van Halen have been recorded using these preamps.
After the preamp section, the LA-610 MkII offers the T4 optical compressor. The simple operation and program-dependent nature of the LA-610 T4 compressor provides the same extremely musical control that has made the LA-2A such a well-loved classic for more than 40 years. The electro-optical detector, or T4 cell, is the heart and soul of the Teletronix LA-2A. Its unique combination of electroluminescent panel and photo-resistors are the crucial circuit components, giving the compressor its signature sound.
