LA4 for vocals?

Do you think that the Urie LA4 would be a good vocal compressor? I am thinking of using it with my Neve 3415. Thanks for your opinions.

Yes, but only with Alactronic mod ...
Otherwise it is not that great IMHO
unfortunatly it is rather expensive

It'll be useable, if not wonderful - experiment with the settings, and all...

I've got a friend who has been using one for his vocal chain for 20 years and the clients haven't complained.

It's a tad slow on release and quiet noisy, the alactronic mod is mainly correcting these issues if I remember well ...

I think Eddie Ciletti has a DIY mod for these--it might be worth checking into.

I did a record with a guy who had a very high voice (think Boston/Head East) I ended up using a Beyer M88 and a borrowed LA4 and it came out nicely.

Another vote for Eddie

I love my Eddie Ciletti hot rod LA4's (6). I always use 'em on guitars and keyboards.

I don't use them on vocals because I have an 1176 and LA2A. A friend of mine also has the Eddie mod on his LA4 which he does use for vocals all the time. He loves it too.
