Waves CLA-2A Compressor/Limiter - Dynamics Plug-In (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

The CLA-2A from Waves is a plug-in modeled after the 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 plug-in can also be used on guitars and bass, and shines on vocal performances. The software contains presets developed by Chris Lord-Alge, providing a huge choice of settings for obtaining classic sounding compression and limiting.

Compressor and limiter modes
Great on guitar, bass, and vocals
Sidechain frequency filter
Zero latency
Up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution (Native) and 96 kHz (TDM)*
*Accel card required for 88.2 and 96 kHz operation
Mono and stereo components
SoundGrid license compatible with MultiRack Native, StudioRack Native, MultiRack SoundGrid, StudioRack SoundGrid, and eMotion ST Mixer

Waves CLA-3A Compressor/Limiter - Dynamics Plug-In (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

The CLA-3A from Waves is a plug-in modeled after a famous early 70's solid-state compressor that was 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.

Waves CLA-76 Compressor/Limiter - Dynamics Plug-In (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

The CLA-76 from Waves is a plug-in that features models ("Blacky" and "Bluey") of the famed mid-'60s Class A line level limiting amplifier. A favorite studio tool, the original hardware had a super fast 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 is the "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.
