ACME Opticom MK-2 Opto tube compressor
The Opticom xla-3 is an all tube optical limiter inspired by the classic Teletronix LA-2A. Loving the LA-2A's smooth natural compression characteristics but seeking to improve upon its single compression speed inspired the development of the xla-3. The heart of the XLA-3 is a unique triple optoelectronic circuit the combines the best characteristics of 3 separate compression curves into a single unit. The result: a high speed optical limiter with tones that range from "clean" to "harmonically rich" to "dirty"
