Peavey Vc/l-2 Valve Compressor La2a Style Compression:
This is a great LA2A style vintage compressor. It is in excellent condition sparingly used in a smoke free Environment. I hate to sell it but have no choice. Please ships to USA Introduces VC/L-2TM Valve Compressor/Limiter MERIDIAN, MS Peavey Electronics Corporation is excited to announce the all-tube, dual channel VC/L-2TM Valve Compressor/Limiter, featuring our exclusive OptoDynamics system. With OptoDynamics, compression & limiting is much more natural and transparent than with solid-state designs. The VC/L-2 contains absolutely NO solid-state devices in the audio chain. For example, there are no solid-state opto-isolators, opto-couplers, or opto-diodes. The "heart" of this design features an EL84 tube and a custom (and expensive) electro-luminescent panel. This design has many advantages over other opto-isolator systems. Regular bulbs, for example, take time to heat up the filament and create light, and cannot respond instantly to signal changes. LEDs respond more quickly, but do not have a smooth response curve from full off to full on, and do not offer the natural attack and decay characteristics of the light bulb. Electro-luminescent panels provide the best aspects of bulbs and LEDs-a faster response than a bulb, yet with smooth and more musical gain control! The second part of the OptoDynamics system is the warmth derived from the tube audio chain. There are two 12AX7s (four stages) for each channel that provide serious advantages over inexpensive VCA designs, which typically sound "cold" and are prone to hiss & distortion. The output stage of each channel is a "power amp" design that uses a two-stage 12AT7 tube, which results in a +20 dBm output capability. The warmth of tube processing is legendary and provides the famous sound originally only available from vintage products. To ensure optimum gain, the VC/L-2 XLR inputs and XLR outputs are transformer balanced ("triple" magnetic shielding). Additionally, 1/4" inputs/outputs are provided for instrument or line inputs. Available in a two-channel, two rack-space design, the VC/L-2 is the perfect addition to any recording project that needs the smooth compression/limiting that is only available from an all-tube design. The VC/L-2 compressor/limiter is the unit of choice when a sonic challenge arises in your recording process that can only be solved with an all-tube design. Whether you need to produce smooth vocals, fix a lifeless snare drum, erase muddy lows from a bass, add "punch" to an acoustic guitar performance, or for a myriad of other applications, the VC/L-2 OptoDynamics system provides complete management over your audio dynamics.
