Classic Compressors by Chris Lord-Alge

FX Bundle by Waves

True classics stand the test of time.

Chris Lord-Alge is a true classic. Over the course of a career spanning almost three decades, he has worked alongside many artists who are classics in their own right.

Green Day. U2. Dave Matthews Band. Tim McGraw. Brian Setzer. Peter Frampton. Tina Turner. Rod Stewart. Steve Winwood. James Brown. Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five. And many others.

Now, Waves and Chris Lord-Alge join forces to bring you impeccable models of four compressors considered true classics by audio engineers the world over.

CLA Classic Compressors - True classics from a true classic.

CLA-2A - Compressor/Limiter

Modeled on the legendary electro-optical tube compressor, the CLA-2A emulates the original’s smooth, frequency-dependent behaviors that have made it a favorite of engineers everywhere. Like the mid-‘60s classic, the CLA-2A sounds great on guitars and bass, and really shines on vocals. Top it all off with Chris Lord-Alge’s personal presets, and seemingly limitless instantiations, and you’ve got a model that surpasses its inspiration.

CLA-3A - Compressor/Limiter

Based on the early ‘70s solid-state unit known for its unique and highly transparent compression curve, the CLA-3A delivers the quick response and the subtle harmonic distortion for which the original is world-renowned. And just like the original, the CLA-3A is the bomb on bass, as well as on guitars and vocals. But unlike the original, you can fire up as many instances as your system can handle!

CLA-76 Bluey & Blacky - Compressor/Limiter

Inspired by two highly-desirable revisions of the famed mid-60s Class A line level limiting amplifier, both versions of the CLA-76 (“Blacky” and “Bluey”) offer the superfast attack (as quick as 50 microseconds!) that made the originals studio legends. With an exclusive “ALL” control that recreates the original’s explosive “All-Ratio-Buttons-In” mode, plus modeled pre-amp distortion for that extra edge, the CLA-76 delivers some of the most powerful drum sounds imaginable!
