IGS ONE LA 500-Series Compressor

The IGS ONE LA is an opto-compressor built for the 500-series format - and it is truly a no-compromise vacuum tube device that is sure to be a favorite piece of your studio.

The The IGS ONE LA 500 is the first high voltage vacuum tube 500 series module that is offered by IGS. It is powered with 250V DC from an on-board voltage converter, so it can be plugged into any 500 series rack equipped with a standard power supply.

Every single ONE LA is hand made with high quality, matched components (1% metal film resistors, Wima caps). It is equipped with RFT NOS tubes and individually calibrated to give you the unique and unspoiled experience of one of the best opto-compressors in the history - the Teletronix '68 LA-2A. IGS spent hundreds of hours designing the ONE LA, to make sure that it is as simple to use as it is versatile. Not only for harmonically rich vocals and strings, but also for huge and beefy drums and bass instruments. Three audio transformers (Sowter and Edcor in audio path and OEP in sidechain) have been used to provide excellent performance and with only two knobs and a single compressor/limiter switch, there is nothing that could go wrong.

Lovely! November 11, 2016
Reviewer: Emanuel Kohli from Pfäffikon SZ, Schwyz Switzerland  
The One LA sounds excellent! Sent the signal trough it, you don't need to do a lot anymore later, because the sound is amazing and levels are balanced very musically. The source just sounds thicker and nobler. You really get a lot for the money - highly recommended!
