Acme Audio XLA-500 500-Series Limiter
The Acme Audio XLA-500 500-Series Limiter has taken inspiration from the acclaimed XLA-3 and Acme Audio has painstakingly squeezed the XLA-3's topology into a convenient two space 500 series module.
The XLA-500 is a tube optical audio limiter designed to produce a full range of non-linear, dynamic audio effects. The heart of the Acme Audio XLA-500 is a unique triple optoelectronic circuit that combines the best characteristics of three separate compression curves into a single unit. Combined with Cinemag input and output transformer and a class-A gain stage, the result is a high-speed optical limiter with tones that range from "clean" to "harmonically rich" to "dirty"; and compression curves that range from subtle and slow to very fast and aggressive. The Opticom XLA-500 is the most versatile 500 series optical limiter on the market. Whether trying to gently control dynamic range on vocals, adding weight to a bass track, or even crushing a drum track - the XLA-500 can perform all of these tasks effortlessly and with great satisfaction to the user, and, ultimately, to the listener.
