ART Pro-VLA II Two Channel Vactrol-based Compressor

Model: PROVLAII   |    Mpn: PROVLAII   |    Ean: 0840402018254   |    PartNumber: PROVLAII   |   Asin: B0012MIVW4

Offering numerous improvements over its predecessor, the Pro VLA II, an opto-compressor/limiter with a tube-based gain stage, it provides greater musical control for tracking and mastering. Featuring an improved overall package, it now provides variable attack and release knobs, lower noise, and increased range on threshold and output gain. For mastering, an enhanced link mode lets CH1 output control act as a master level control while CH2' output control becomes a balance control. Another feature for mastering is the inclusion of pots with detents, which makes settings repeatable. The Pro VLA II is designed to excel in tracking, mixing, mastering, live sound, or broadcast situations. The Pro VLA by ART is a tube driven Vactrol-based Compressor/Leveling amplifier designed to excel in any professional audio application, including tracking, mixing, mastering, live sound or broadcast situations. By using an opto-electronic design, (as opposed to a more typical VCA driven level detection circuit) the Pro VLA II allows more compression to be added to an audio source with a more natural, musical sounding output and virtually transparent dynamic leveling. This VCA-less design coupled with a 12AT7 vacuum tube in the gain stage makes the Pro VLA II tube compressor the ideal dynamic control device for critical studio and live sound applications. These are the differences between the Pro VLA and the Pro VLA II: 1. Enhanced Link mode In link mode, CH1 output control acts as a master output level and CH2 becomes a Balance control. This optimizes the Pro VLA II for use as a mastering processor. 2. Active balanced outputs. The old VLA has balanced outputs that have 6dB more gain than when using them in the unbalanced mode. This shows up as an error when using the VU meter to compare the input and output level. 3. LED output meter. a. Always monitors the output level allowing the user to view Both input and output levels at the same time. b. LED meter indicates both average leve...

Features

  • VCA-Less Vactrol Opto-Compression Design, Mastering Quality Audio Signal Path with Tube Gain Stage, Variable Threshold, Ratio & Output Controls
  • Enhanced Link Mode - While in stereo link mode, channel 1 level control acts as a master output level and channel 2 becomes a balance control between them, - optimizing the Pro-VLA II for use as a mastering tool
  • LED Backlit VU Input/Output Level Metering Indicates Both Average Level And Peak Hold
  • Accurate Ten Segment LED Gain Reduction Metering. +4dBu/-10dBu Mode Switch Optimizes Pro-VLA II For Interface with Professional OR Consumer Grade Components
  • Active Balanced XLR And -Inch Inputs & Outputs. Toroidal Transformer Reduces Mechanical & Electrical Hum

Warm Audio WA76 Limiting Amplifier

Model: wa76   |    Mpn: wa76   |    Ean: 0634041455019   |    PartNumber: wa76   |   Asin: B00HLTM7RW

The WA76 Limiting Amplifier is a modern reproduction of the Classic 1176 Revision D. Every effort was made to remain faithful to the original designs including the use of Reichenbach Engineering's (now CineMag) transformer design that was originally used. The classic 1176 was a major breakthrough in limiter technology - the first true peak limiter with all transistor circuitry offering superior performance with a signature sound - and set the standard for all limiters to follow. The ultra-fast attack time and trademark sound have lured legendary artists and studio moguls alike to the 1176 - Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, Joe Chiccarelli, Vance Powell, and Mike Elizondo are just a few names on a list that's continued to grow, for nearly 50 years.

dbx 560A Compact, Professional Compressor/Limiter

Model: 560A   |    Mpn: 560A   |    Ean: 0691991000638   |    PartNumber: 560A   |   Asin: B00U2L0Q2Y

The dbx 560A Compressor/Limiter offers legendary VCA-based compression in the increasingly popular 500 Series format. dbx has a much-heralded history with modular processors dating back to our 900 Series and the 560A continues that tradition. Featuring the same switch-selectable Over Easy and Hard Knee compression curves as our industry-standard dbx 160A rack mount processor, the dbx 560A will be your new workhorse compressor! With extremely wide-ranging threshold, ratio and output controls and true RMS level detection providing the most natural-sounding dynamics processing available, the 560A will provide punch to drums, bass, vocals, almost anything! It's also versatile enough to go from subtle compression to "brick wall" peak limiting. Choose low ratios and Over Easy compression to expertly smooth out fluctuating vocal and instrumental levels, or use the 560A's Hard Knee compression and high ratios for bombproof protection against overload distortion in digital recording, P.A. systems and broadcast signals. The 560A's 19-segment, switchable Input/output LEDs and 12-segment Gain Reduction LEDs provide precise analysis at a glance. And, the dbx 560A's unique "INFINITY +" inverse-compression mode actually decreases the audio output level below unity gain when the input exceeds threshold, a real lifesaver for correcting overbearing vocal choruses and controlling runaway mix levels. Load up your 500 Series rack with some dbx 560A Compressor/Limiters and go to work!

Features

  • Over Easy or classic hard knee compression with dB's ultra-musical program dependent attack and release times
  • Compression ratio variable from 1:1 through infinity: 1 to -1:1
  • Precise RMS gain reduction and input/output meter displays with calibration control for different operating levels
  • True RMS level detection
  • Exclusive Infinity+ compression using negative ratios

dbx 160A Professional Audio Compressor/Limiter Dynamic Processor

Model: 160A   |    Mpn: 160A   |    Ean: 0798304329377   |    PartNumber: 160A   |   Asin: B0002H0QGE

Since its introduction in the mid 1970's, the dbx 160 series has been the world's most popular line of audio compressors. After the classic 160 (which is still used daily in many world class studios), came the 165, the 160X and the 160XT. The 160X/XT were the models that truly became the industry standard. Solid construction, fool proof operation, great sound, at-a-glance metering and a bulletproof output stage all contributed to its popularity with musicians, recording studios, consultants and installers, and broadcast media production people alike. The dbx 160A is a legendary dbx 160 family of compressor/limiters. The same classic sound, easy set-up and no compromise metering is now married to an improved signal path and stronger chassis design. The result is industry standard compressor/limiter which is digital-ready and road tough. Featuring switch-selectable OverEasy and Hard Knee compression curves along with extremely wide-ranging threshold, ratio and output controls, the dbx 160A is up to any task. True RMS level detection provides the most natural-sounding dynamics processing available, from subtle compression to "brick wall" peak limiting. Choose low ratios and OverEasy compression to transparently smooth out fluctuating vocal and instrumental levels. Or use the 160A's Hard Knee compression and high ratios (up to and beyond :1 and over 60dB gain reduction) for bombproof protection against overload distortion in digital recording, P.A. systems and broadcast signals. The 160A is fully compatible with +4/-10dB and balanced/ unbalanced systems, and its electronically balanced output stage is an outstanding line driver for long cable runs (an output transformer is optional). The 19-segment, switchable input/ output LED metering can be easily calibrated to any operating level. 12-segment gain reduction LEDs provide precise analysis at a glance.

Features

  • OverEasy or classic hard knee compression with dbx's ultra-musical program dependent attack and release times
  • Compression ratio variable from 1:1 through infinity :1 to negative compression
  • Precision dual RMS LED display monitors input or output and gain reduction over a wide range and calibrates for different operating levels
  • Over 60dB of gain reduction available
  • Exclusive Infinity+ compression allows negative compression
  • Inputs: TRS, floating balanced XLR, and pin 2 hot XLR
  • Outputs: TRS, floating balanced XLR, and pin 2 hot XLR
