  • Super Tank!

    by Mchangani
    The amp, response,mix knob and output trim work on any material.
    this thing if the input is driven hard it can be gritty, on slow and slight input drive its clean! I use it on my drum buss,bass,vocals and instruments. its a secret weapon!

    The Acme Opticom XLA-3 is a fantastic tool. Simplicity of use, versatility and super musical results are their main trademarks - specially on vocals, where it definitely shines. Pull th trigger; you simply can’t go wrong with this one!

  • ACME Audio Opticom XLA-3

    I've been putting this on the input chain for recording my vocals, it adds density and gives it plenty of character on top of smoothing out the peaks. Lovin It...

    Simply loving the harmonics/character that adds to your track. Specially on Bass track. It helps to hear the notes of the bass not just Vibration. Very easy to use
  • its a nice comp

    Nice looking comp, and acts amazingly similar to hardware. I haven't used it on too many different sources yet, but its impressed me so fr.
  • LA-2A’s Angry Brother

    by Adam Bruns
    I’ll put it simple, great opto plug-in with nasty character and grit. If you want a clean opto-compressor, go with something else. This plug worked great on rock and pop based instruments and vocals, and I will contact bye to use for rock/pop genres. EDM and electronic genres may not have a need for its sound.
    Either way, this is a great plug and I’m loving my purchase of it.
  • The Opticom XLA-3

    by Bounce
    This is such a great compressor ! It sounds fantastic and with the ability to turn off compression is great ! It's a wonderful tool to heat up tracks ! I'm trying out the SSL 400 E channel and it's goes great with this plugin or by itself. The SSL will be my next purchase when it goes on sale. Plugin Alliance has done it again !
