Tegeler Audio Vocal Leveler 500 Series Opto Compressor

500 series classic Opto compressor with a no-frills design featuring knobs for gain reduction and output volume allowing you to achieve fast and convincing results on your vocals

MFR# Vocal Leveler

Product Description

The Tegeler Audio Vocal Leveler is a 500 series classic Opto compressor with a no-frills design. With just two knobs for gain reduction and output volume, you have exactly the parameters at hand that you really need to achieve fast and convincing results. Thanks to the link function and stepped potentiometers, nothing stands in the way of processing stereo signals and recalling your settings easily. You can also control the reaction times of the compressor via a toggle switch and are thus prepared for a wide variety of recording or mixing situations.

More than just for your voice

The musical compression behavior typical of Opto compressors makes the Vocal Leveler a flexible dynamics tool that is not only suitable for voices. Signals such as bass, acoustic guitars, etc. also get along very well with its soft, inconspicuous compression. The Vocal Leveler remains transparent and subtle, even when it’s hit a little hotter, and thus also serves as optimal protection against overloading signal peaks during recording without destroying the micro-dynamics or the character of your audio signal.

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.
Phil T.
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.
