    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? This is a fantastic outboard compressor. I've never had the luxury of using a UA 1176. I do have UAD 1176 mkii plugins which are good, but this sounds much better to my ears. Also... being able to track by controlling the signal on the way really effects performance in a positive way. And there's a certain realness you feel with hardware. Things just get recorded fantastically. I tend to use a UAD LA2A plugin to level the vocals in my rough draft mixes. I pair this with a ToneBeast. I'm absolutely considering grabbing the new Warm LA2A. Mic is a sm7b. Everything gets sent to a BLA Sparrow Red II. This is hands down the best sound I've ever achieved... and it's achieved easily. Just make sure you're in a good recording environment.

    What is your opinion of this product? To be honest I didn't think that the WA76 would sound this good. Being as though I fell in love with the UA version. It really surprised me. I have to grab a couple more of these as well. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.

    What is your opinion of this product? This seems to work and sound like the UA 1176 for less than half the cost. A true win-win.

    Your general opinion of this product. A $2000 limiter/compressor at less than 1/3 the price. Sounds fantastic! Will now be involved in 80-90% of the tracking done in my studio. Paired with an ISA One this makes a killer professional quality input chain into my DAW. I had previously been in the camp that in today's world you don't need outboard compressors. But while recording someone with a wide volume range, I found that I had to lower the pre gain to stop ADC clipping and then bring the volume of the quiet parts up in the DAW. But that added too much noise to the quiet parts. With the WA76 in place, I can keep everything in those very dynamic tracks nicely in the low noise range.

    Your general opinion of this product. This is the real deal. I had toyed with the idea of getting the kit for quite awhile and then the wa76 became available for even less than the kit. It's well worth the investment for not much more than a plugin pack of compressors
