ART Pro VLA II Two Channel Vactol-Based Compressor

ART Pro VLA II Two Channel Vactol-Based Compressor
The ART Pro VLA II Two compressor has been designed to be used in any professional audio environment with its superior performance and tone it is the ideal tool for the studio. The Pro VLA II is the perfect unit for mixing mastering dynamic control of live sound sources or for use in broadcast audio. The VLA II is capable of delivering a far more musical natural sounding and sonically transparent compression than competitive units in its class

Capable of delivering a far more musical natural sounding and sonically transparent compression than competitive units in its class the ProVLA II uses an Opto-electronic circuit rather than the more typical design VCA driven level detection circuit. This VCA-less design coupled with a 12AT7 vacuum tube in the gain stage makes the Pro-VLA II the ideal dynamic control device for critical audio applications. Exceptional signal integrity with extremely low noise and low distortion is achieved in the ProVLA II by utilizing a transformerless design throughout. Vactrol Technology Unlike typical compression units that use Voltage Controlled Amplifiers (VCAs) to handle level detection the Pro VLA IIs Opto-electronic design allows a far more transparent and musical sounding compression without sounding aggressive or un-natural. This Vactrol based optical electronic circuitry is the basic component of the classic highly sought after compressors of past. Vactrol design allows the ProVLA II to react to audio signal in much the same way the eye naturally adjusts to fluctuations in light levels – smoothly quietly and almost imperceptibly. Soft Knee Leveling The ProVLA II is a soft knee levelling amplifier by design. Although capable of providing dramatic compression effects the ProVLA II was designed to excel in any application where transparent expressively musical dynamics control is desired. Comprehensive Metering Large highly visible backlit analog VU meters accurately display input and output levels while extremely fast 10-segment LEDs display gain reduction. For added functionality the LEDs display either average level for mastering & mixing applications or peak hold for monitoring individual sources when tracking audio. Versatile I/O XLR and 1/4-inch TRS balanced inputs and outputs are provided to ensure the ProVLA II can connect with any audio source or hardware. A +4dBu/-10dBu mode switch optimizes ProVLA II I/O for either consumer or professional equipment. Features/Specifications Dynamic Range: > 100dB (20-20KHz) Total Harmonic Distortion: ART PA-DJ-and-Lighting VSZ
