WA2A - Tube optical compressor with Tung-Sol and Electro-Har



The Warm Audio WA2A is a fantastic recreation of a classic opto tube compressor, offering natural sounding compression and the pleasing sound of tube and transformers

It will add that classic analogue character and 3D-ness that plug ins lack. Nothing beats the detail, depth and responsiveness of a well-made piece of analogue gear. The WA2A Offers the sound of boutique analogue equipment that isn't financially out of reach for the average studio owner. If you’re looking for something to help that vocal sit in the mix, the WA2A is exactly what you've been looking for. Also sounds incredible on Bass, guitar and drums!
