Key features of the ONE LA 500

Two happy buttons

The ONE LA 500 from IGS is an opto-compressor designed for 500-series racks. It is IGS's very first high-voltage lamp module for this series. It is powered at 250V DC via an integrated voltage converter, allowing it to be installed in any 500-series rack equipped with a standard power supply. Three audio transformers (IGS Custom for the audio circuit and OEP for the sidechain) guarantee exceptional performance. With just two knobs and a single compressor/limiter switch, operation is perfectly intuitive. What's more, the photocell is easy to replace, ensuring simple, effective maintenance.

Exceptional craftsmanship

Each ONE LA unit is meticulously hand-assembled with carefully matched high-quality components, such as 1% metal-film resistors and Wima capacitors. Equipped with JJ tubes, each ONE LA is individually calibrated to guarantee a faithful and authentic reproduction of the iconic characteristics of the famous Teletronix '68 LA-2A opto-compressor. We've spent hundreds of hours developing the ONE LA to ensure it's easy to use yet extremely versatile. Whether enriching vocals and harmonic strings, or boosting the low frequencies of bass drums and low instruments, the ONE LA excels in all areas.
