  • 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.

    Main Features

    Compressor and Limiter modes
    Zero latency
    Sidechain frequency filter
    Up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution
    Mono and stereo components

    Controls

    • Gain - 0 to 100
    • Peak Reduction - 0 to 100
    • Compressor Mode - compressor, limiter
    • HF Freq - 0 to 100
    • Analog - off, 50 Hz, 60 Hz
    • VU Display - input, gain reduction, output
  • 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.

    Main Features

    Compressor and Limiter modes
    Zero latency
    Sidechain frequency filter
    Up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution
    Mono and stereo components

    Controls

    • Gain - 0 to 10
    • Peak Reduction - 0 to 10
    • Compressor Mode - compressor, limiter
    • HF Freq - 0 to 100
    • Analog - off, 50 Hz, 60 Hz
    • VU Display - input, gain reduction, output
  • CLA-76 Blacky & Bluey - Compressor/Limiter Plug-In (Native)

    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.

    Main Features

    Superfast attack
    Includes "All Buttons In" setting
    Pre-amp distortion modeling
    Zero latency
    Up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution
    Mono and stereo components

    Controls

    • Input - infinity to 0
    • Output - infinity to 0
    • Attack - 1 to 7 (1 ms to 50 µs)
    • Release - 1 to 7 (1 s to 50 ms)
    • Ratio - 4:1, 8:1, 12:1, 20:1, ALL
    • Comp Off - comp on, comp off
    • Analog - off, 50 Hz, 60 Hz
    • VU Display - input, gain reduction, output
