A great addition to my studio!
What is your opinion of this product?
I have been reading the reviews and comments on several websites about the WA2A Compressor, I have the WA76 but wanted a smoother, more transparent compressor for vocals. THIS IS IT! AND AT A GREAT PRICE! This added a professional touch to my recordings. Thanks AMS for many years of service to me and all of us out here trying to make it in the music world.
