Maselec MLA-2
What are the effects or types of effects available?
Transistors analog compressor

Is this a rack or rack-mount model?
2U, the unit does not heat too. The manufacturing quality is impeccable.

What is the connection?
2 inputs and 2 outputs stérée XLR + 4dBu


Is the general configuration is simple?
All standard parameters of a compressor are there: attack, ratio, and release.

Only originality: the threshold (threshold) is fixed, and it is the entry level is varied. The calibration procedure is as follows:

- On enables the bypass tray. At that time, the input gain and output gain knobs are inoperative. This allows you to adjust the level to be sent to the compressor (this transistor device does not support saturation) seen through the meter in position "seen"
- It deactivates the bypass tray and adjusting the input gain until you have the desired compression level,
- Level of the loss is compensated with the output gain.


Are the effects effective, responsive and realistic enough?
MLA 2 is a compressor in the strict sense of terme.Il is very transparent: think of it as a controller that varies the fader of a table to keep the attack and mitigate the rest of the signal.

Furthermore it is in no case a limiter, it does not address the attacks.

Therefore MLA-2 is a precision tool that can easily be used alone, it will be more comfortable in a mix or mastering chain, where the sound should be respected.


With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes, once associated with EQ and limiter.

Optical compressor mastering.

XLR connectors.


Not too simple configuration. Threshold fixed and variable input gain.


This compressor is very transparent, it is necessary to master mixes that are blameless and who have an interesting grain (that is to say that each track has already been properly colored équalisée and compressed).

It should also traking to compress a voice, or bass, for example.

There is no WYSIWYG for extreme-6dB is too many.


The device has a very good value for money, but it is comfortable in a configuration rather high-end, combined with other analog devices.

Do not invest in an mla-2 as the first compressor.
