LA-2A Leveling Amplifier Deep Dive



In this weeks episode, Chris and Jody take another deep dive into a classic piece of kit. This time, the LA-2A Leveling Amplifier. They take brief look at the history of the unit, it’s different versions, through software versions as well how they like to use it in their workflow and mixes.

As always, there’s also some nonsense discussed. 

And if you’re keeping score at home, the Logic emulation is called ‘Vintage Opto’.
