The author focuses on the Retro Instruments Sta-Level that improves on the original '50s Gates Sta-Level via some critical components and added adjustability. The features of the Sta-Level including its versatility due to its internal and external attack or release adjustments and the recovery knob are mentioned. The author's experience of using it is described.
