Overview
  • 1Description

The CLA-76 Blacky & Bluey (TDM) from Waves is a plug-in that features models of the famed mid-60's Class A line level limiting amplifier. A favorite studio tool, the original hardware had a superfast attack (as quick as 50 microseconds) that is reproduced in the software model. The plug-in can be used on numerous sources, but really shines when processing drums.

Also featured in the plug-in is the unconventional "All Ratio Buttons In" setting that provided the trademark overdriven tone of the original, along with modeled pre-amp distortion. The original hardware underwent numerous revisions after it was first introduced with a blue strip on a silver faceplate. The black face version added low-noise circuits on additional circuit boards and reduced distortion. Both versions are represented here.
