Very Good: This instrument or product has been carefully played/used and shows few,
minor signs of use. In most respects it looks and performs like new and may be considered
equivalent to display units found in retail stores. Its packaging may not meet the
standards set by the factory and it no longer carries the manufacturer's warranty.
Condition 2 products are a terrific value and you can buy with confidence knowing
our 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee on instruments and 30 days on accessories applies to this used product.
This instrument or product is in good working condition but has one or more cosmetic
flaws beyond those of a Condition 2 product. These flaws are typical of an instrument
or product that's seen normal wear and tear, including incidental scratches, chips,
dings, dents or other imperfections. It performs just as well as a Condition 1 or
Condition 2 instrument/product. Its packaging may not meet the standards set by
the factory and it no longer carries the manufacturer's warranty. Condition 3 is
a great choice if you're looking for performance and value and not as concerned
with cosmetics. You can buy with confidence knowing our 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee on instruments and 30 days on accessories
applies to this used product.
This instrument or product is not in working condition and needs repair, but can
be brought back to full functionality with replacement of parts or some skilled
repair work. If you are a do-it-yourselfer or know a skilled repair person this
is a terrific value. Condition 4 products are sold AS-IS: they do not come with
a manufacturer's warranty and are not returnable.
This instrument or product has been damaged beyond what we judge is reasonably repairable.
It's best used for spare parts or to practice repairs on, and at this price Condition
5 products are sold AS-IS: they do not come with a manufacturer's warranty and are

Art Pro VLA II Tube CompressorThe Pro VLA by ART is a tube driven Vactrol-based Compressor/Leveling amplifier designed to excel in any professional audio application, including tracking, mixing, mastering, live sound or broadcast situations. By using an opto-electronic design, (as opposed to a more typical VCA driven level detection circuit) the Pro VLA II allows more compression to be added to an audio source with a more natural, musical sounding output and virtually transparent dynamic leveling. This VCA-less design coupled with a 12AT7 vacuum tube in the gain stage makes the Pro VLA II tube compressor the ideal dynamic control device for critical studio and live sound applications.These are the differences between the Pro VLA and the Pro VLA II:1. Enhanced Link modeIn link mode, CH1 output control acts as a master output level and CH2 becomes a Balance control. This optimizes the Pro VLA II for use as a mastering processor.2. Active balanced outputs. The old VLA has balanced outputs that have 6dB more gain than when using them in the unbalanced mode. This shows up as an error when using the VU meter to compare the input and output level.3. LED output meter. a. Always monitors the output level allowing the user to view Both input and output levels at the same time.b. LED meter indicates both average level plus Peak hold.4. Attack and Release knobs vs. switches. The Old VLA compressor has switches that allow the user to adjust the attack time between "Fast" (~1mSec) and "Normal" (~10mSec). The release switch can be set to "normal" (200mSec) and "Auto" (program dependant, but rather long an average). a. Attack time as ranges from .25mSec to 50mSecb. Release time ranges from 0.15Sec to 3Sec. (This is program dependant at shorter release rates).c. Improved detector that lowers low frequency distortion at fast release rates.5. Improved packagea. Rounded front panel machined to countersink all knobs and level meters.b. Re-enforced ears.c. Led lit switch caps.d. Heavier chassis and cover ruggedized for longer life on the road.6. Lower noise. a. +4dBu/-10dBv mode switch optimizes the unit for Pro OR consumer operating system levels.b. Toroidal transformer reduces mechanical and electrical hum.c. Tweaked Tube circuit for better dynamic range.d. Increased transformer shielding.7. Increased ranges on Threshold and Output gain. This allows the user a wider range of operation. a. Old threshold = -20 to +15, New Threshold range = -30dB to +20dB.b. Old Output gain max = +10dB, New output Gain = +20dB8. LED lit VU meters. No more dark meters due to blown out bulbs.9. All of the pots have detents. a. Imparts a more professional feel.b. Makes settings more repeatable.
