    ART Solo VLA Multi-Voice Tube/Opto Compressor

    Notify me when this product is available:

     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 Multi-Voice Tube/Opto Compressor was designed to excel in applications where transparent, musical dynamic control is desired. The Blend control lets you combine the dry and processed signals for parallel compression, perfect for preserving your full dynamic range while adding fullness and sustain. Select between a pristine solid-state path or a class-A vacuum tube gain stage for warmer saturation.

    The Solo Series of single channel rackmount units have been developed for the recording enthusiast with a preference for simplicity.
