Le Garage Studio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French) " Helpful"

4
Complete period. Lack of serial digital.

UTILIZATION

Quite simple. It must still control the base.

SOUND QUALITY

I changed the bulbs for ENGL. I used the base coupled to an AT4050 for vocals. But I find it more efficient on low.
The soft knee compressor is if the drive is not pushed. The equa is not bad, without more, it does its job but is rough in addition subtraction.

OVERALL OPINION

Slice that does its job, it is a good brand that respects the manufacturing quality of its products.
It will be very useful and efficient on low, a little less on the voice, and the cart for acoustic guitars.

Correct

UTILIZATION

correct

SOUND QUALITY

Sound interresting colors, if you cherhcez one preamp restoring a neutral sound go your way.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 year now mainly for my taking his acoustic guitar and the amp did a good job, but he must be aware that pre-amp has a signature sound has a little bite with a british interesting.

Sound tube 3 amplification stage, semi parametric equalizer compressor noise gate, true
mono channel strip rack units 2.

UTILIZATION

Yes no particular problems. while for the sound you can get the sound you want, sound rather
colorful style to the SSL. I use my personal all-digital card via SPDIF optional and there I
say, the beast really gives it a best of everything is functional, even on the gate
which I have read the bad reviews. In any case I gets no clicks or other ill effects
to the gate unusable from what I read here and there. On the contrary I would say I am quite
glad it works and my voice taken are all the better.

SOUND QUALITY

For my part, I am delighted with this amp and I must say, it is still difficult to make the wrong
with her. mics that I Deputy static or dynamic, it fits well. effectively to
those who research sound very neutral, so there go your way, because it provides a color we like or not like it.

OVERALL OPINION

For about six months. The sound is colorful it is, but what I like most is that it is possible
through a compromise, it changed the lights to approach a particular preamp
legend, or rather to compose a new sound through various lamps.

In response to the notice below: I dispute that Ultragainl'équivale. The TLAudio rpésente thousand times more possibilities than a Behringer amp; certainly not the warmest of the preamp, but this account it is possible to change the lamps (eg Telefunken.)

Blend 12AX7-transistor
Connectors on this classic type of device (mic, line ...)
Presence of a gate of more random


UTILIZATION

Configuration ideal for learning
Getting a good sound requires an adjustment to the sources:
- The voice, the record is generally very good with a microphone static if the following conversion is good, especially when the compression comes from the equation '
- For guitar, device unsuited alone, requires a lot of boost and clarity is lost in the cream caused, however this can give with the pedals (the first try in first-position [before the band] and , but useful little practiced by time in post, ie before entering DAW) on the other hand, very good to take the mids of the guitar with a microphone
- For percussive elements: it depends, but can be very useful in a battery made for Tom's or to soften the cymbals)
- For BAR: provides added warmth and even swing with the comp 'in the extreme, it is still necessary that the initial sounds are minimally processed (reverb tends to drool)
unless you are good converters: not recommended for treatment of external effects during mixing "in the box''
- For synths: yes on tablecloths or to reduce the sound shrill stridency

SOUND QUALITY

- reproduction that can be flattering on the excellent singing proximity effect (sensuality, intimacy), eg. with a Neumann TLM; mezzo made it a standard dynamic SM58
- The guitars are thereby muted, which may be interesting or to correct with EQ
- Preamp rather go without colored in shades of garish range corresponding Joemeek: its brittish, creamy

OVERALL OPINION

Well to start, have used it for 2 years
The +: a benefit very correct on vocals and wind instruments, to work, but also to rework: Second compresssion + Eq remedy: that between the logic of a chain of sound and color can make a very sweet welcome Park preamp '
the -: good acoustics needed to go to a high level
very good value for money
With the experience: thank you Dad!
Very correct

preamp is a hybrid with real pieces of light inside. Costeau, nice, nice VU meter knob pleasant to shoot. We see brillers lamps on each side is nice. Nothing to say.

UTILIZATION

No worries. Everything is clear for this type of device also ..

SOUND QUALITY

With the TLA 5051, it becomes very medium, soft, see soft. It is not transparent at all for a preamp, I say we should test this color before buying, especially if it is to go upmarket, you may be disappointed.

Besides, I'm not sure that those who have a research believer Lamp / Vintage / heat is happy with this choice, I advise them to spend more by plugins to try to do already.

For those who do not think I could do without real light, I advise them preamp rather a more transparent, more versatile. The sensation of light will be more subtle.

I did a riff on a Shoutout resumed in acoustic if you want to make you a notice with your ears, sources here (he also stallion in the preamps zoom R16, for fun):

http://john.fender.free.fr/Export/AF/TLA5051VSOneQ/

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it about two months. I also have a JOEMEEK Q1. Well, I prefer the sound of JOEMEEK, there's no picture. The TLA may well have clearly more headroom, without saturation, he eats too much sound from what I get with the JOEMEEK which highlights the fine bass and treble clear and precise with respect to a sound becomes very medium, may be softer, softer to me.

Besides, I sell mine.

...

UTILIZATION

A minimum so that we know how to use a preamp, a compressor, and an eq I think the usage is rather simple. For a clean sound: minimum entry level and high output for a dirty sound of course is the reverse. It actually has a single lamp (triode), so if you enter too much in the preamp, a small gain of makeup or eq will quickly saturate the signal.

SOUND QUALITY

I find good quality even though I could not make true comparisons with another preamp in this category. I did some comparative tests on a voice rapped with a small table for home studio Tapco 6306 (C414 XLII as micro). It is on that has nothing to do, the sound is much more "accurate", this, more respectful of the source. Be careful though if you want a clean sound that does not hit too hard when the preamp input, the distortion appears very quickly, and what can be very smooth on a bass or a guitar is not necessarily a voice.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it in the studio along with a ISA220, I think I still prefer the ISA is still more complete, but for that price I think the 5051 is one of the best machines. I use it to record vocals, bass instrument input (DI not need to practice!), And most of my drums vsti or to compress and equalize (There's also an input line). My opinion of course can not be objective because I have not yet acquired much experience in this type of equipment.

I'll let you read the previous review

UTILIZATION

Yes it's simple.
We get a good sound easily bcp faster than on other devices more expensive and more accurate!

SOUND QUALITY

This amp is not transparent but very colorful so you'd better test it before. I really like it went very hot, I often hear that it sounds very British. I often gum in the lower midrange between 250 and 500 Hz
My sound engineer boosts the lot is understood that sometimes a little soft. But what fun for the rest of the voice in concert.
It is coupled with a Beta 87.

I recorded my album with at least voice coupled with a Neumann.
The result here:

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 years I think.
I especially compared with slices console: Midas ...
Ascending: The warmth of sound, the grain
The -: It can take well cut in the midrange bass.
Excellent value for money. The beast is not too fragile for a tube preamp. Even if I had to have it reviewed there was not very long because of capricious knobs (but it has turned bcp) and it works again nickel.

Technology: lamp
compressor, gate, EQ preamp
XLR Connectors and jackkkk
Personal I raqui a good old small wooden table.

UTILIZATION

Config quite simple,
the sound is really terrible, TL Audio's really the heavy
English manual (shame), but clear enough.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is very well reproduced (on the bass is standard)
the preamp adds a slight Collor, but the eq is used to set all with precision
the noise gate but not top dpanne well (he does his job, but it is clear there is better).

OVERALL OPINION

I have used the version in the studio stereo chanels (Ivory Series 1) for 1 year
and I just bought the 5051.
When you buy a tl is the compressor, and seriously can not be of, unless it is not known to use it and that starts to swing anything in it.
I tip for bass, and the battery (though tedious as mono (so you have to take some the head, a reconnect and re-registration by chanel chanel every time.
Dja Having used many other systems of compression (for the most part digital, the TL really has nothing to do, it brings warmth and potato research (also works very well with an MPC and very effective use pure computer music). HOWEVER: s'apperoit it very quickly it takes two, because that does not pass through rings at once hollow and weak compared to what comes out.
in the clear if you made a low pass through it immediately will prevail over all other 'normal for a compressor but, it has nothing to do with a digital compass in a 2franc 6. the result is Excellent but we get used to dealing with chanel chanel :-(!
The report price is Excellent quality but that was just for 130 euro more you can have a stereo version (5021) (see DIGITAL VILLAGE I Discoveries this site after buying Thomann and I must say it's a bit nerva! TLA Ivory 2 5021 to less than 600 E-books!
with the experience I took the stereo (which is also a 2 chanels spars (5021), less a broken foot and then use guain of time, you lose against the EQ and when we taste to that of the 5051's is hard to do without. EQ is all just the best I've had the opportunity to use simply because the frequencies are well chosen and it brings the desired result very quickly without stifling and without breath. (this is the advantage of this Trache all in one) some people criticized the 5052, there are four possible hypotheses: either the driver of a UPS flingus lamps by manipulating the box ( very possible, as fragile). is the compressor begins to age and the lamps begin weakening. or the people they had the same brain and ears grills and / or does not know how to use it . the 5052 and 5051 twice. this compressor is for use "melo" and not a death of Bourin (prod ideal for POP, HIP HOP, TRIP HOP, surely at least for hard rock, mtal and / or hardtech big sound, Bourin electro, drum & Bass pure.
Some people criticized the sovtech lamps supplied with the compressor, I will simply say that dpend on what you want to do with. incoming sound while still having the same Determines relative to the desired result. if they do the job (that means you're more pop, "duffy" or hip hop style "Nas, DJ Premier," is what you need.
I read that if you want the bass massive attack you can forget two years and having lived in Bristol (world capital of trip hop) I would say that it is false (that virtually all the studios bristolien TL Audio quips are maded in england). Massive Attack uses electro bass notes that have undergone different treatments (the compressor is not that matters) the old Rolland is also something and want the Fx.Je to believe that there are better, but even when it is sure it's 500 E and it was worth the money! I think some people have been delivered by clumsy! and it is possible that the lamps will be ammoches along the way (this is the stuff fragile, if we play soccer with the box is sure it's dead), which explains the " Ignorance "some criticism after having put electroharmonix. the sovtech gives a good potato, but then again what is dpend research. I'm going for my chopper electroharmonix and I'll keep you posted!
Note: Avoid touching the lamp with doight because fingerprints left on the glass part used as fuel and therefore the lamps start to exterminate a warm barbecue sauce that you had on doights!
