Helios consoles were used to record and mix some of the finest rock, pop and reggae classics ever produced. The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Roxy Music, Queen, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley are just a few that recorded with these amazing wrap-around consoles. Moreover, many great musicians of the era purchased Helios consoles for their personal use. Of all the Helios consoles produced between 1969 and 1979, the original “Type 69” is considered the most musical. Universal Audio modeled the EQ section of the very first Type 69. This console was originally found at Island’s Basing Street Studio in London; it now resides with Jason Carmer in Berkeley, California, where it continues to record multi-platinum albums.

LA-3A Classic Audio Leveler Plug-In Features:

The original Teletronix LA-3A Audio Leveler made its debut at the 1969 New York AES show. Marking a departure from the tube design of the LA-2A Leveling Amplifier, the solid-state LA-3A offered a new sound in optical gain reduction, with faster attack and release characteristics that were noticeably different from its predecessor. Immediately embraced as a studio workhorse, the LA-3A is still widely used today. Engineers and producers the world over favor the LA-3A for its unique compression characteristics and sonic signature. Modeled from a unit in UA’s vintage collection, our digital emulation of the LA-3A faithfully captures the hardware’s sound, working magic on vocals, guitars and drums.

  • Definitive solid-state optical compressor
  • Modeled from a “golden” vintage unit in UA’s vintage collection
  • Gain and peak reduction controls plus metering/power switch
  • Front panel Limit/Compress switch
