Stereo Mastering Compressor
The Maselec MLA-2 is a stereo or 2-channel compressor with variable drive, ratio, attack and release times and output gain. For optimum transparency and freedom from noise the MLA-2 employs a non-VCA design.
The elusive qualities of analogue
In the race for ever better audio performance and processing, the advantages of analogue technology can easily be overlooked. Analogue signal processors have an elusive sound quality that is hard to capture in the digital domain. This is partly why the MLA-2 Compressor frequency response extends well beyond the basic 20kHz audio band. And, compatibility with 96kHz sampling is built-in! Many of the world's top music acts still prefer the sound of analogue 1/2-inch tape and demand analogue processing prior to editing and CD mastering.
