The LA-2A Levelling Amplifier is a vintage audio compressor invented in the early 1960s. It is one of the most popular compressors known in the audio world! The LA-2A was originally a hand-wired, tube-based compressor. It uses an electro-luminescent panel together with a light dependent resistor to provide gain reduction, which in the LA-2A’s own terminology is called the T4 cell. The properties of the T4 give the LA-2A its unique character by making it an entirely program dependent design.
