Killer Plug-in Based On an Iconic Limiter

Waves' CLA-76 compressor/limiter plug-in is inspired by the legendary mid-'60s limiting amplifier, beloved by Sweetwater Sales Engineers for its lightning-quick attack and release times and the sound of its Class A output amplifier. The CLA-76 gives you both iconic revisions of the the classic hardware unit, each delivering attacks as quick as 50 microseconds. The All control replicates the original's explosive performance when all the ratio buttons were depressed, while modeled pre-amp distortion gives you the extra edge you need to put your drum tracks over the top. Waves' CLA-76: it's essential kit.
