FMR Audio RNLA Really Nice Leveling Amp

The FMR Audio RNLA (Really Nice Leveling Amp) is essentially a compressor that is ideal for use with acoustic guitars, bass, electronic drums, dual-mix sources, and vocals. In fact, many users attest that the RNLA’s characteristically thick sound lends a singularity to their mixing/mastering stations that other vintage amps/compressors simply do not possess. 

The RNLA offers a subtly more colored sound than its sibling, the RNC. Users looking for a solid compressor with ample colorization should opt for the former, while users looking for a solid transparent compression unit should consider the latter.
