Universal Audio LA-610 MK IIPublished on 02/07/10 at 12:09
The Universal Audio LA-610 MK II is a sequel to the original LA-610 and is quite similar in make up, offering up a few new features and a slightly improved sound quality, although it would be hard to tell the difference most of the time. This is an all analog channel strip, consisting of a mic pre, a compressor, and an EQ. The strip has both XLR and 1/4" TRS connections, including a 1/4" input in the front for plugging your instrument directly in. It is a rack mountable piece of outboard gear, and will take up two spaces.

The Universal Audio LA-610 MK II is a sequel to the original LA-610 and is quite similar in make up, offering up a few new features and a slightly improved sound quality, although it would be hard to tell the difference most of the time. This is an all analog channel strip, consisting of a mic pre, a compressor, and an EQ. The strip has both XLR and 1/4" TRS connections, including a 1/4" input in the front for plugging your instrument directly in. It is a rack mountable piece of outboard gear, and will take up two spaces.

UTILIZATION

Universal Audio has made the LA-610 MK II extremely easy to use, just like the original. Everything is straight forward and there are certainly no tricks here. The mic pre has parameters for both level and gain, line selection, a -15db pad, phantom power, and phase. The EQ only has a high and low band, each with parameters for choosing a set of fixed frequencies and a gain knob. The compression section has controls for peak reduction and gain, just like the LA-2A which this is based on. It also has a switch to either use it has a compressor, limiter, or bypass it. The VU meter is programmable and you can choose to view either your preamp level, gain reduction, or compression. The manual is put together well, but is only necessary if you're a beginner in my opinion.

SOUND QUALITY

Across the board, the Universal Audio LA-610 MK II has a very impressive sound quality. All of the components of this channel strip have a top notch tone, with the preamp and the compressor being the main attractions here. While there are some new and improved features on the MK II, for the most part they are subtle, so this does sound a great deal like the original LA-610. This is certainly not a complaint, as both models sound incredible! This is the perfect all in one channel strip for both a home and professional studio owner.

OVERALL OPINION

While a tad more expensive than the original LA-610, the LA-610 MK II boasts a new look and some improvement on the inner make up. In my opinion, like the original, this is ideal for the home studio owner looking for a big sounding channel strip to sit at the top of your collection. It does however have the sound of something that a professional would use, making it great for improving the sound of your home studio with a single item. I'd highly recommend the LA-610 MK II for the home studio looking to get your home recordings on a whole new level!

Recognize it a holding of quality in the high-mids. In this same CATEGORY "pramplification" I would choose the Neve or an SPL Channel One example; any property considr the sound is not quite dfini. That said, while I prefer to have a slice with a really Superior qualiseur.
It is not rtorqu me that it would hold the Methodius "lamp", since Earlybird prevail aisment this Criterion, as well as lamps.


NOTICE GLOBAL

I will not say but I'd be curious to know what gives the compressor compared to a TL Audio, which is not very good sign for the AU. Some taken, perhaps even having a TL 5051 I would opt door hand on it, and finally the 610 objectively is over in terms of clarity (no transparency, for which the solid state excels online but sanitizes engaged, less moving towards SSL range of the top).
- Few versatile;
- Moyennenement prcis;
- Too rpandu for voice (but this is not a real argument).
- In between online, take the time to observe the noise-floor, up the Neve: it will be lev. This means that with a little flexible compressor and a dtrioration signal, it will be of little use in pro mixer ': it is not really consquent a "channel strip" but rather an all-in-one East outlet.
- His "between instrument" is correct, without more, in the same court that within the Avalon VT737. In this game there too, a DI with well conus transistors and a good transformer turns much better.

Very good material

Preamp rack lamp with his all totally analog compressor XLR.

UTILIZATION

Setup is simple for people who have used a preamp and we get sound fairly quickly, the manual is almost useless for this kind of material (it is only my opinion)

SOUND QUALITY

It can be used in different ways, it is possible to color very little sound (with the switch -10 -5 0 5 10) or otherwise provide more light and thus provide a certain color. This is a product that allows you to take her remarkable.

OVERALL OPINION

1 year. The price / quality ratio is good because it is a known preamp that has genuine qualities I bought it bundled with a Kiwi at a very good price. I tried and still trying to present many preamps sliced ​​like this one or console and is one of my favorite ones with my old Soundcraft (strange you say ???: p)

SOUND QUALITY

I use it for voice with a static Boehringer and transplanting my guitar amp marshall lamp with a SM57. I finally have a pro and his own! Finally, the voice clear in the mix (even if my microphone is not great) with or without compression. Transplant my amp finally good for something: the sound is faithful, see better what I mean, with more grain, more details. no background noise and good dynamic.
the compressor, the time constants are fixed (10ms and 500ms in attack back), so nickels for voice. I have not tried it with the guitar. I wanted to try with my bass Hi-Z but it's not terrible at the attacks.
In summary, this is a revolution in my studio!
Finally a good sound!

OVERALL OPINION

I have not tried other models that preamp my soundcard (RME Fireface UC) before.
However, the sound is radically different color and providing a quality I had not before. Also practical and easy to use a Swiss Army knife!
I remake the same choice.
