ART Solo VLA Multi-voice Tube Optical Compressor

Sale price$259.99


ART Multivoice Tube/Opto Compressor

Whether it’s to fatten up an instrument take, smooth out a vocal performance or prevent clipping while laying down tracks, the ART Solo VLA will elevate your projects to the next Level. The Solo VLA has lots of sound shaping options.
Parallel Compression
The Blend control is used to dial in dry signal back into the output. This allows the mix in some of the original signal while using a heavy amount of compression to fatten up a track while retaining some of the dynamics.
Soft-Knee Leveling
The Solo VLA is a soft-knee leveling amplifier by design. Although capable of providing dramatic compression effects, the Solo VLA was designed to excel in applications where transparent, expressively musical dynamics control is desired.
Select between a pristine solid-state path or a class-A vacuum tube gain stage for warmer saturation.
Comprehensive Metering
A back-lit analog VU Meter can accurately display either the Output Level or Gain Reduction.
