Retro 2a3 owners

Absolutely loving the unit, been a few months now, gets better and better.

When using as my bus EQ, currently have it feeding AMS 1073 before printing, and looking to add a compressor to the chain.

Curious if any users have found something that it particularly shines next to that I should consider?

Aside from across the mix, where it definitely does amazing things, even flat, I'm loving EQing my reverb stems through it. I love the attenuation of the top end, so smooth!

Anyway, would love to hear from any other users / lovers of this unit.

it's pretty sweet to so many things, but like its' brother sta, definitely has the retro thumbprint. i find it a bit too much character for the bus... but imagine i might also be in the minority on that.
one place i often favor it though is last in the voc chain -at mix- for 16k air.
have to close my eyes when i set it cause +75 looks so extreme, but it's just so smooth it hardly breaks a sweat.
great on all things kit too, of course.

Does it get any love being used as a pair of mono traditional pultec stuff like kick bass lvox???

The low end of te pultec is real special on kicks.

There's the current pultecs also for that but just curious if most people generally use this mainly on stereo sources.

Just got one. Why did I wait so long?!

Retro is two for two with me.

The last two things I’d sell in my rig is my 2a3 (mix bus), and the Sta-Level (bass).
