UA LA2A

Mastering with 2 UA LA-2A vs UA 1176LN

I thought this mix I did might serve as an interesting analog mastering comparison using a few compressors with tubes and trannies.

Even though the LA-2A and 1176 is best suited for tracking and mixing, who cares right, I'm more interested in the colour on this one. The beauty of hybrid is ability to master something clean or add colour in many ways. Lets see what these gems sound like paired up and put to the test on the master chain.

3 versions of the same song.

My Original Mix:

New UAD plugs at NAMM - LA-2A M2 and more

So far, nothing that exciting for most people from the http://www.uaudio.c…"]Universal Audio booth at NAMM.[/]="http://www.uaudio.c…"]Universal Audio booth at NAMM.[/] But they have introduced the plugin that I've personally been waiting for - the Mark 2 version of the LA-2A . Their old version of the plug is one of my favorites, but it was developed 10 years ago, and it's not as good as some of their more recent plugs.

UAD LA-2A and 1176LN, Which Native Pluggin comes Closest.

Anyone know of any Native pluggin that comes close to UAD's LA-2A and the 1176LN emulation.

I will be getting a UAD pack in about a month. But untill then I need a plugin that has the Lushness and Creamyness of the UAD's LA-2A .

Which plugin compressor have you used that comes the closest. Thanks
Help is appreciated.

And which PAK to you recommend?
