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.
In Depth
- Vactrol Opto-compression design (No VCA)
- Mastering-quality audio signal path with tube gain stage
- Enhanced link mode
- Variable threshold ratio and output controls
- LED backlit VU input/output level metering
- LED metering indicates both average level and peak hold
- Accurate ten segment LED gain reduction metering
- +4dBu/-10dBV mode switch
- Active-balanced XLR and 1/4" inputs and outputs
- Toroidal transformer reduces mechanical and electrical hum
- 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
