Один из лучших la-компрессоров, что я видел в цифре, и достойный конкурент любому аналогичному платному плагину.

How do I get this into my ableton after downloading? It's not allowing me to carry it over...

Do you own an Abelton 64bit version? Unfortunately this plugin (an all the other Antress-stuff) is 32bit, so you can´t use it within 64bit DAWs...

This is the thing for pianos and rhythm guitars. Highly recommended.

This plugin does not support 192k! It accept 192 and 96 but will downsample to 48k, and no eeffect is applied. Tested with christian Buddes VST analyzer.

IMO that´s no reason to give this great plugin just one star. If you want higher internal resolution, than you have to buy an Univers*l Aud*o-Card ;)

This is an EXCELLENT tool in the DAW, both artistically and technically. Wheres high priced alternatives add fairy dust tone, this is clean like a Cakewalk CA-2A. I thought I found the perfect LA-2A clone in the CA-2A, but the price and restrictive license made it impossible to purchase. When I compared the Antress to the CA-2A, that's when I saw it's usable indeed.

For those who knows how a real LA-2A works, the Modern Lost Angel is a really good alternative to emulate this amazing machine. An amazing plugin.

Truely a great sounding compressor. It's simple to use and is just perfect for compressing the ever living snot out of you sound! (If that's your thing...) I through it on all my vocal tracks. There are only two knobs. Plain and simple. If you don't understand how a compressor works. Play with it until it sounds good to you.

Great, great, great!!! And it's really for free. Don't forget to take the "seventh sign". It's a 1176- clone and in combination with the "lost angel" you get real classic compression modes.

Attack time (Variable, 0.1 to 10 ms), Release time (Variable, 0.05 to 3 secs) , are definitely not controllable

If it was modelled properly then the attack/release and the ratio are dependent on the source signal but generally the original Teletronix was a 10ms attack time, a 4:1 ratio and the release was around 60ms on quick signals with a further hold from 1s - 15s depending on the signal. It worked using a luminescent panel as an input and photocells 'seeing' and adapting the compression ration and release, if the photo cell sees light it continues to work. You control it by using the input gain and peak together. Gain would make the panel inside brighter optically and then you adjust the peak to control the amount of compression (how much of the light the photo cell responds to). An opto compressor. It leaves transients alone and averages out the signal over time. Great for bass, guitars, keys, and vocals (in conjunction with another compressor like an 1176 if you need to deal with a vocalist's transients). I use this style of compressor as a leveller. I used a hardware one constantly in 1990's when I was a studio recording engineer. The Native instruments VC2A is probably my favourite version in a plugin. It responds how I remember it.

Thanx for your professional and detailled answer. And also for the classic tip to combine a la2a- comp with a 1176- style comp (maybe the free "antress 7th sign"). This combination works also great with snares and it's interessting to experiment with the chain: Sometimes I favourite the 1176 in the first instance, sometimes the la2a...
