So far I have been using it for tracking mostly. It makes the track stay on its side of the bed while also putting the listener in the room without artifacts or even being heard. I wanted a tube/optical compressor in my signal chain mostly because that is what I was used to hearing from years as a session player. It covers those basses and more. I use it for very subtle purposes so far. The music I have been working on has been either chamber music or singer songwriter stuff. I haven’t used it for squashing or anything like that yet so I can’t speak to that aspect of it. I’m looking forward to pushing it when the time comes. The CLA-2A does have a subtle flavor of its own but it is not obtrusive at all and it a very very nice flavor.
