Miscellaneous Information
Copy ProtectionUAD Hardware Specific

The Teletronix LA-2A Leveling Amplifier is practically the definition of vintage audio gear. The original opto-electrical attenuator circuit is responsible for the sound embracing the tracks of many classic recordings in circulation today. Universal Audio studied not just the sound, but how each and every component interacted and behaved under a full range of studio conditions. It is a digital copy of the LA-2A and upholds all the classic, analog characteristics of the original, according to Universal Audio.


  • Identical look, controls, and operation of its analog cousin.
  • Lag-free, Distortion-Free Optical Attenuator Emulation.
  • Frequency-Dependent Compression Behavior.
  • Input Gain and Peak Reduction Adjustment Knobs.
  • Limit/Compress Function Switch.
  • +4, -10, or Gain Reduction Metering.
  • Full automation capabilities.
  • Mono or Stereo Operation.

A Note about UAD Powered Plug-ins
UAD-2 and UAD-1 Powered Plug-Ins run exclusively on Universal Audio's UAD DSP Accelerator Cards. All available Powered Plug-Ins are included in the UAD Software Installer/Updater Package; and every Plug-In title has a separately activated 14-day trial -- so users can try before they buy, at their own pace. Once a user decides to purchase a Plug-In, they can click on the Plug-In toolbar "Buy" button, which automatically takes them to the www.uaudio.com website and carts the plug in; or this can be done manually via browsing our webstore. Once the purchase is complete, a downloadable Authorization File is made available. Users simply drag and drop this Auth. File into the UAD meter, and the Plug-In is authorized. UAD-1 users can transfer Plug-In licenses to UAD-2 format for free (one time only). Via Customer Support, Universal Audio also allows registered UAD owners to sell their UAD card(s) with Plug-In licenses, transferring the licenses to the new card owner (subject to Universal Audio approval).
