Our IA-LA1 compressor plugin is designed to be super responsive. It comes with a transparent algorithm that introduces no distortion or artefacts. But if colouration is required we have the THD control, which introduces a gentle dynamic distortion adding extra warmth and depth.

IA-LA1 comes with accurate level meters and a gain reduction meter giving a clear visual of the compression being applied. Get perfect compression in less time with our IA-LA1 compressor plugin.

Easy Compression

IA-LA1 is a simple to use Compressor plugin. Threshold and Make up gain are the two main controls. The threshold represents the level at which compression will start to affect the audio. Anything over the threshold is compressed, which reduces the dynamic range of the audio. The threshold is shown as an orange line on the input meter, compression will start to happen when the audio level goes above this line. Now use the Make up gain to compensate for any loss in loudness. That's it. Get perfect compression every time with just these two controls. No need to set an attack or release like on many other compressors.

Meet your new compressor plugin. Initial Audio IA-LA1 Compressor. Please give the demo a try and see for yourself.


  • Automatic compression – no need to set attack and release times.
  • THD – Total Harmonic Distortion, adds extra warm and depth.
  • Preset manager – Save and load custom presets.
  • Input gain – Push the audio louder before entering compression.
  • Make up gain – Increase to compensate for any loss of loudness from the compression.
  • High definition resizable GUI.
