  • Product Description

    Developed in collaboration with world-renowned mixer/engineer Chris Lord-Alge, Waves CLA Classic Compressors consist of four plug-ins: the CLA-2A, the CLA-3A, the CLA-76 Blacky and the CLA-76 Bluey. These classic models grant users access to the same tools that Lord-Alge has used to help define hard-hitting rock and pop over the last several decades.

    Waves CLA-2A Compressor/Limiter
    Modeled on the world's first electro-optical tube compressor, the CLA-2A emulates the original's smooth, frequency-dependent behavior that has made it a favorite of engineers everywhere. Like the mid-60s classic, the CLA-2A sounds great on guitars and bass and particularly shines on vocals. Topping it off with Lord-Alge's personal presets and the zero-latency only a Native plug-in can provide, CLA-2A offers users a model that far surpasses its inspiration.

    Waves CLA-3A Compressor/Limiter
    Based on the early 1970s solid-state unit known for its unique and highly transparent compression curve, the CLA-3A delivers the quick response and the subtle harmonic distortion for which the original is world-renowned. Just like the original, the CLA-3A is ideal for bass, guitars and vocals. Unlike the original, users can fire up as many instances as their systems can handle.

    Waves CLA-76 Bluey & Blacky Compressor/Limiters
    Inspired by two highly-desirable revisions of the famed mid-60s Class A line level limiting amplifier, both versions of the CLA-76 ("Blacky" and "Bluey") offer the super-fast attack that made the originals studio legends. With an exclusive "All" control that recreates the original's explosive "All-Ratio-Buttons-In" mode, plus modeled pre-amp distortion for extra edge, the CLA-76 delivers some of the most powerful drum sounds imaginable.
