Why We Love This Product!

You Just Can't Imitate a Classic Like This!

Owning an LA-610 Mk II is like waking up next to a panda. It's warm and fat, and as soon as you realize what you've got, you'll want to make tracks like crazy. But seriously, there's nothing quite like recording with a Universal Audio LA-610 Mk II. Way beyond the reach of all those gadgets that have a "vintage sound," the LA-610 Mk II is a classic that's been used on thousands of the best recordings, or at least its sections - the Putnam 610 preamp and EQ, and the LA-2A opto-compressor - have been. Vocals, kicks, bass guitar, these are just the big three you're never going to record without your LA-610 Mk II once you get it.

The LA-610 Mk II's the ultimate sonic Band-Aid too, mellowing the edge of strings, smoothing out brass, lifting up male vocals, softening the bite of female vocals, and even saving kittens from trees... well, maybe not that last bit. From its fat tube preamp that's loaded with warming harmonics, to the über-punchy presence of the opto-compressor, you'll hear everything you've missed out on by recording with inferior channel strips. And if you've ever cursed the sterile sound that is the disease known as digital audio, then the UA LA-610 Mk II is the cure you've been waiting for!

The LA-610 Mk II is a must-have for any rack. The mic channel is awesome and loaded with vintage vibe and the compressor side is perfect for tracking vocals. A great pre that's well worth the price!

Send us your love letter

Darryl, your note of thanks arrived like a gentle wind blowing across the surface of a still pond on a crisp fall morning, stirring the embers of a dwindled campfire encircled by the tents of campers awakening to the sight of a beautiful dawn.
