  • ART Pro VLA II 2-Channel Tube Compressor Details

    The ART Pro-VLA II is a tube driven Vactrol-based compressor/leveling amplifier designed for tracking, mixing, mastering, live sound, or broadcast situations.

    By using an opto-electronic design, 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 an ideal dynamic control device.

    • Vactrol Opto-Compression Design (no VCA)
    • Mastering-Quality Audio Signal Path with Tube Gain Stage
    • Enhanced Link Mode - 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
    • Variable Threshold, Ratio & 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 Optimizes Pro-VLA II For Interface With Professional OR Consumer Grade Components
    • Active Balanced XLR And 1/4-inch Inputs and Outputs
    • Toroidal Transformer Reduces Mechanical and Electrical Hum

    ART's Tube Compressor/Leveling Amplifier deliver analog leveling/compression designed to work seamlessly with any recording, sound-reinforcement, and electronic instrument application. It excels at making tracks sound rich and full for both live audio engineering and studio recording applications.

    ART's tube compression circuitry is a hybrid design utilizing advanced analog and tube technology, and has exceptional signal integrity with extremely low noise.

    This unit utilizes optical electronics (a device known as a Vactrol), coupled with a 12AT7 vacuum tube gain stage for superior musical performance. Unlike typical compressors which use VCAs to control level detection, ART tube compressors are very musical, expressive and natural-sounding.
