GAP COMP-2A and COMP-3A?!

I responded in the thread "Which 1/2 rack compressor should i get?" and the OP posted that GAP was coming out with an 1176 syle comp. So I went to check out the GAP website and what do I see?



Pretty exciting. They suppose to start shipping in November/December.

Judging my the names, and the look those probably aren't 1176 clones. LA2A and LA3s are opto compressors, and are quite different fro the FET 1176.

I guess my post wasn't clear. I went to their site to check out the comp76 and while browsing I also saw the comp2a and 3a. But thanks for the clarification.

From GAP FB page:

Any idea about price and date of release of 2A and 3A??
Golden Age Project: You can expect them early to mid-fall, hopefully the price range will stay within 400-500 EUR

Is that a new GAP compressor? LA3 copy?
Golden Age Project: Yes the two black ones are inspired by the LA2A And the LA3A!

I see. They do look interesting.

The Comp2A looks pretty cool, especially for the price. Also, interesting that GAP is getting into tube gear (at least I assume if it's an LA2A clone it will be tube based).

Anyone know if there's any updates on the LA2A and LA3A?

Here for the gear
I'm sure the 3A is priced at about 5000 SEK. About £380.

I don't know where I've read this though.

I'm very interested in this. I'm in the market for a compressor and I love the la2a!! Wonder how this stacks up?? If I get one I will DEFINITELY do a comparison between the 2 the day it arrives!!

I fiddled with the COMP-3A at AES at the Alto Music booth. (They did not have the COMP-2A.) Build quality seemed great. It felt just like a real la-3a except it employs a wall wart. Wasn't plugged in so I didn't hear it though.

I see they put the 3a in the advert in SoundonSound this month...

....waits patiently for comp2a.... let's speculate it's half the price of the IGS One LA (£625)... I wonder how close to the sound it'll get...

Whoa, that LA-3a looks *A LOT* like the Sa-3a (shadow audio then, serpent audio now) I DIY'ed a few years ago.

Hey there, it's the Comp3A that is in stock in very, very small numbers. I do not know when the 2A will ship but will be a while.

We also have audio in our Clipalator using both compressor and limiter modes, and the HF sidechain feature on vocals.

Thanks,
The clipalator is great but if you could add one feature that would be awesome. The feature is to be able to have 3 references in a que so you can play them one after the other or switch between them at will.
It just easier to reference from an unprocessed source and then between two different units. Online only!!

Thanks,
Steve

If you hover over the clip an arrow pops up, that is a download arrow. You could then load 3 files in your DAW and switch.

Re-building the entire format (another player or system entirely) isn't a quicker easier way I am sorry to report.

Would it be a major project to get it off Flash? I wanted to obsessively fritter my life away comparing mics over xmas, but couldn't because I only had my iPad with me.

It's actually on the agenda to move it to a universal, HTML based player.

Stay tuned.

100% of my internet browsing is on iPad or iPhone, so that's good news as I've never been able to check out the clipalator. If I'm on the computer I'm usually only downloading updates and that's it. I suspect a lot of people are surfing on their iPad or mobile device as well.

Is it possible to rack mount a pair of 2A? If so, how much space would it use?
Thanks.
