Tube Opto Compressor

Ask any sound engineer or artist out there to name one of the most iconic tube compressors ever made – the majority would certainly say it’s the Teletronix LA2A. With its extremely silky sound and unrivaled simplicity of controls it’s the go-to weapon for most engineers when it comes to vocals or bass…learn more»

Program Tube Equalizer

If there is a holy grail of vintage tube equalizers, the Pultec EQP-1A is certainly it. A true legend of which the magic can be heard on countless records from the golden era of analog recording to the present day. The passive design of amazingly smooth filters paired with a tube amplifier…

Mid Range Tube Equalizer

Most of what can be said about the EQP-1A is true for the MEQ-5 as well: turning the knobs to dial in the EQ feels like a knife going through grandma’s finest handmade piece of butter.
Only this time you cover the “power-range” of frequencies – try it on guitars and you’ll be amazed…

Vari-Mu Limiting Amplifier

Hardly anybody would disagree if we call this wonderful Vari-Mu tube compressor the «epitome of ultimate tube mojo». Released back in 1961 by Universal Audio it can be seen as the predecessor of the world famous UREI 1176 even though the 176 is a completely different animal…

I had always dreamed of owning a real LA2A. Now I have four, that world-class audio engineers like Mike Stavrou (Paul Mc Cartney, Elton John, former engineer of AIR studios, London) comment on saying it’s the “best sounding and most authentic looking LA2A” they’d ever seen.
I started out knowing nothing about electronics. If I can build one this good – anybody can.

My LA2A’s are done and damn do they sound awesome! This is the face of a man that just completed two wonderful and authentic LA2A compressors. A man that two years ago knew nothing about electronics and would’ve never thought he could someday build a pair of this historic audio processors with his own hands. Thank you analogvibes for making this possible.
