Product Description:

The CLA-2A is modeled on a hand-wired, tube-based compressor originally produced by Teletronix in the early 1960s. Initially intended for use in broadcast, the original used an electro-luminescent optical attenuator called “T4” for gain reduction. Unlike many other designs, electro-luminescent circuitry doesn't add distortion when it modulates the ...  Click To Read More About This Product

Overview

The CLA-2A is modeled on a hand-wired, tube-based compressor originally produced by Teletronix in the early 1960s. Initially intended for use in broadcast, the original used an electro-luminescent optical attenuator called “T4” for gain reduction. Unlike many other designs, electro-luminescent circuitry doesn't add distortion when it modulates the sound. (Tubes, however, do, and we made sure to model that distortion.) Additionally, the inspiration for the CLA-2A’s frequency-dependent attack and response speed made it an instant favorite of audio engineers. However, many consider its most unique feature to be its program dependent, multi-stage release, which was achieved using a 2-stage photo-electric cell. With a Frequency Response of 30Hz to 15kHz (+/- 1dB) and < 0.5% THD, the original provided up to 40dB of gain limiting.
