A vacuum tube stereo compressor/limiter similar in design to an LA-2A. Similar in build to the 1000 allowing engineers and producers more flexibility for stereo use.
The 1500 has many practical applications for recording studios, tracking, mixing, stereo buss, vocals and instruments, live concert sound reinforcement as well as for film and broadcast work.
Of all the available tube compressors, the ADL 1000 and ADL 1500 stand alone. I use them on every session that I do, including Aerosmith, Extreme and Jenna Drey. You owe it to yourself to check one of these out immediately
I love the ADL 1500 so much, I have 3 of them. Warm, fat, and fully tube-packed!

It squashes it but you don't hear it squash. I use one channel on the bass and the other channel for jimmy's vocal. We used 4 total stereo 1500's on Jimmy's Tour.

From the moment I started using ADL Stereo Comp/Limiter 1500, I knew it was it a keeper.

My ADL 1500 is smoother than grits
