Maselec MLA-3 – No Longer Available

Two-channel multi-band compressor
MFR# MLA-3

Product Description

With the Maselec MLA-3 the input signal is split into three frequency-bands. Each band is passed through a stereo compressor where gain and compression can be altered.

The outputs of the compressors are then re-combined and fed to the outputs. There are four different frequencies for each of the two crossovers that can be separately selected for the low-to-mid and the mid-to-high bands.

The three frequency-band compressors have separate controls so that different parts of the audio spectrum can be adjusted and tuned. With separate gain controls for each frequency-band, the MLA-3 can be used as an equalizer.

You can always adjust the controls for the separate frequency bands to different settings. There is no technical reason why they should be the same for all frequencies. Overall Input and Output gain controls make it easy to set up for different operating levels.

Inputs
The inputs are electronically balanced, virtually ground floating, making them perform as if they are transformer coupled, but without the associated colouration, low frequency distortion and restricted bandwidth. The input impedance is 100kohm. Maximum input >+29dBu (balanced).

Outputs
The outputs are electronically balanced and can deliver >+28dBu into 600ohm (balanced). Output impedance is 33ohm (balanced and unbalanced). Both inputs and outputs can be unbalanced by simply grounding either pin 2 or pin 3.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
