I have the Native instruments one, the IK multimedia one and the Cakewalk one.

Incidentally, my favorite one is the Cakewalk one. Cakewalk however is now out of business... Can't believe they gave this one away for free a while back.

Not an LA-2A emulation but a great opto compressor nonetheless, the bx Opto has quickly become a favorite of mine. Definitely worth checking out, especially when on sale.

"You need to be registered in order to demo this plugin."
very annoying to make an account somewhere JUST to demo something... imagine if every developer would have this, how many abandoned accounts would you have all over the internet? :roll:
---------------
anyway, speaking of Spice based plugins... DMG Audio released Trackcomp which modeled the LA2A as well as a few others.. extra %10 release discount until the end of the month.

Out of the explicit emulations, Cakewalk's. RIP.

For the same tube opto behavior with flexibility? Presswerk. It's nullified my desire for other compressors.

Cakewalk, followed by UAD.

It’s no such thing. Every unit was sampled differently or aged differently. That’s the thing about hardware. I have them all because I don’t know what a “ golden unit “ again.

Black Rooster Audio VLA-2A always sounded better than Cakewalk's emu to me.
It's easy if you know how
