Description

The Acme Opticom XLA-3 MKII is an optical audio limiter built to exacting military-style specifications, designed to produce a full range of non-linear, dynamic audio effects.

The heart of the XLA-3 is a unique triple optoelectronic circuit that combines the best characteristics of 3 separate compression curves into a single unit. The result: a high-speed optical limiter with tones that range from ‘clean’ to ‘harmonically rich’ to ‘dirty’.

The Opticom uses high-speed cadmium-selenide (CdSe) photocells, all-tube circuitry, and military style point-to-point wiring. From the 16 gauge, cold-rolled steel chassis to the high quality components, the XLA-3 is built to provide years of reliable, solid performance that will meet, if not exceed, the exacting demands of the audio professional. Just a few of the standard features: custom-ordered Bakelite analog control knobs, full-sized backlit panel meters, Neutrik/Cliff connectors, heat resistant Micalex tube sockets.

Reviews and Testimonials

"On a recent mix for Fergie’s new album the amp section on the Opticom provided the character we needed to make her vocal stand out. If you want gentle compression or ton’s of attitude the Opticom has you covered!"
