The native CLA Classic Compressors Bundle from Waves includes the CLA-2A Compressor/Limiter modeled on the LA-2A compressor, the CLA-3A based on the LA-3A compressor, and the CLA-76 Blackey/Bluey based on the 1176 compressor. The bundle supports RTAS, AudioSuite, AU, and VST plug-in formats on both Mac and PC.
Please note this bundle is an electronic download.
CLA-2 - Compressor/Limiter Plug-In (Native)
The CLA-2(Native) from Waves is a plug-in modeled after a legendary classic compressor/limiter. Like the original electro-optical tube compressor, the plug-in retains the smooth, frequency-dependent behavior that has made the hardware a favorite of engineers everywhere.
The software sounds great on guitars and bass, and brings out the best of vocal performances. The plug-in also contains presets developed by Chris Lord-Alge that provide a limitless choice of settings for classic sounding compression and limiting.

CLA-3A - Compressor/Limiter Plug-In (Native)
The CLA-3A(Native) from Waves is a plug-in modeled after a famous, early 70's solid-state compressor, originally known for its unique and highly transparent compression curve. Features of the original included a quick response and the subtle harmonic distortion, both of which are faithfully recreated in the software version. The plug-in is especially useful on bass, as well as on guitars and vocals.
The CLA-76 Blacky & Bluey(Native) 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.
