From Our Research Team:
Use Chris Lord-Alge's Production Tools and Shine Your MixesA stellar collection from Chris Lord-Alge and Waves! You hear Chris Lord-Alge's work practically anytime you turn on a radio, and now, you can use some of his favorite tools of the trade - complete with many of his personal presets! CLA Classic Compressors gives you a batch of amazing compressors and leveling amplifiers modeled on studio classics from the '60s and '70s, with the added control and flexibility of modern plug-ins. Don't compromise with humdrum plug-ins when you can use a real hitmaker's tools to get your own great sounds!
You get two amazing compressors plus two versions of an outstanding leveling amp in the CLA Classic Compressors bundle. Want the smooth, vintage-style character of a tube compressor? Put on the CLA-2. It sounds like a classic from the mid '60s, and it'll work wonders on your material. If you prefer faster response and transparency, then the CLA-3 is your ticket. Based on an early '70s solid-state compressor, the CLA-3 works great on all kinds of instruments and vocals.
When it's time to rein in transients and pump up the volume, put on the CLA-76 Blacky & Bluey. You won't find a better model of a classic '60s limiting amp, and Waves went one better - they made two distinct variations for CLA Classic Compressors! You get a fast attack, incredible character, and even modeled preamp distortion, for that magical "it" sound that made the hits simply pop out of the radio speakers. Big drums? You've got 'em. Waves included an "ALL" control that recreates the original's "all buttons in" setting, for that amazing over-the-top effect.

by Kendal from Tulsa, OKThese plugins are fantastic, and such a great value. It's to the point where you need to stop asking yourself "do I want them to sound identical to the original units, or do I want three amazing compr... read more [+]essors?" I have done some A/Bs with the LA3 and a great vintage LA3 and I couldn't tell the difference, honestly. All the plugs sound amazing, so useful in modern mixes. The truth is, the old units were so different from each other anyway, you might not even get your hands on a good sounding one.

At the end of the day, these compressors can get you through almost every mix. You can always branch out and be creative, try new things, but with these three you can get you somewhere. Two thumbs up, definitely waves. close [-]

The 1176 Blue Stripe is amazing on Vocals. Dial in a 7 on release and around a 4 on attack and then don't be afraid to let the meter display generous amounts of compression. These plug-ins can dish out tons of compression without you hearing unpleasant digital artifacts.
I Also love the Black 1176 on Drums. This is the compressor that will transform your drums the most of any software compressor I've heard. If you set the attack to 7, it reacts lightning fast. It has the best sounding All Buttons In mode I've ever heard for on a software compressor. The only compressor that is as good on squishing drums is the SSL Bus compressor. Both are amazing.
Finally, the LA3A is amazing on Acoustic and Electric Guitar.
Trust me. These Compressors are going to make a big difference in your mixes-Especially if you don't mind using generous amounts of compression. close [-]

This bundle is EXTREMELY accurate and true to every model included with it. the 1176 blacky is the most perfect 1176 blackface emulation I have used. I know what the hardware unit sounds like and what it can offer to all sorts of instruments and this model does EXACTLY what the hardware unit does.
The LA-3A is great for vocals (in fact I used it during tracking yesterday) You can really drive the vocals and still get a smooth compression tone with a great smooth grit to it to give a bit of an edgy vocal sound.
Bar none, THE best compressor bundle money can buy. close [-]
The Waves CLA Classic Compressors Native bundle stands head and shoulders above the rest. These are simply the closest that plug-ins have to come to the real "hardware" units. If you work in the box, these are a must! I use them daily!
