Cakewalk has released RE-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier, a Rack Extension for Propellerhead Software’s Reason music production platform.

RE-2A Leveling Amplifier is Cakewalk’s take on the LA-2A by Universal Audio.

RE-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier is meticulously modeled after a legendary vintage electrooptical tube compressor.

This compressor, known for its automatic gain control characteristics, delivers vintage sound with incredibly warm and rich compression. It is revered by audio engineers worldwide for its trademark sound, and has been used on countless hit records since the late 1960s. It is one of the true classics in the audio recording industry.
