Best Little Compressor!

By Emily

from Kalamazoo, MI

Comments about Summit Audio TLA-50 Tube Leveling Amplifier:

Wow, nothing has warmed my voice and bass like this little monster. I've used their big TLA-100A in the studio before and I thought it was too good to be true to get a similar sound at this price. It wasn't! Simple to use, lots of I/O, this little monster RULES.

Affordable Warm Tube Sound

By andy

from Fond du Lac, WI

Comments about Summit Audio TLA-50 Tube Leveling Amplifier:

I'm very happy with the TLA-50 in respect to the price/performance category, it smooths over vocal tracks very nicely with a high level of warmth. The fact that it is made here in the USA makes me very happy. I have several lower end compressors and limiters and this blows them away. I'm saving up for a higher end limiting amp and I am confident that after that future purchase I will still have many day to day applications for the TLA-50.

This thing rocks!

By RYAN

Comments about Summit Audio TLA-50 Tube Leveling Amplifier:

I needed something to fatten up my vocals and this did the trick. Much better than any plugin I have and I have many...... It's so simple to use and sounds so good. I tried it on bass as well and was extremely pleased. This thing is a bargain. The only thing I miss is a mix knob. I would recommend anyone who is looking for some yummy tube saturation to check this out and give it a listen.
