Product Description for the Waves CLA-76

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.


  • Super-fast attack
  • Exclusive ALL control
  • Pre-amp distortion modeling
  • Zero latency
  • Up to 24bit 192kHz resolution
  • Mono and Stereo components
  • Supports TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST, AU
  • PC and Mac compatible
  • Input controls input level attenuation.
  • Range : -Inf to 0 (in 0.1dB steps)
  • Default : -30
  • Output controls output level attenuation.
  • Range : -Inf to 0 (in 0.1 steps)
  • Default : -18
  • Please note : The scale is not linear and has been adjusted to conform to the exact scaling of
  • the modeled unit. Thus, there may be more compression than expected at certain steps, as with
  • analog gear.
  • Attack controls the compression attack time.
  • Range : 1 (slowest - 1 millisecond) to 7 (fastest - less then 50 microseconds) in 0.0x steps
  • Default : 3
  • Waves CLA-76 User Guide
  • Release controls the compression release time.
  • Range : 1 (slowest - 1 second) to 7 (fastest - 50 milliseconds) in 0.1x steps
  • Default : 4
  • Ratio controls the amount of gain reduction for signal above the threshold.
  • Like many compressors, the higher the ratio, the higher the threshold. For example, at a ratio of
  • 20:1, the threshold point is -12 dBFS, meaning that every peak which passes -12dBFS will be
  • compressed at a 20:1 ratio. When ratio is set to 4:1, the threshold drops to -18dBFS, meaning
  • that every peak which passes -18dBFS will be compressed at a ratio of 4:1. This, therefore,
  • results in “more” compression, despite the lower ratio.
  • Range : 4:1, 8:1, 12:1, 20:1, All
  • Default : 4:1
  • Please note : The “All” setting recreates the original hardware’s explosive “All-Ratio-Buttons-In”
  • mode. This mode results in very aggressive compression with a decent amount of distortion. It’s
  • worth checking out!
  • Comp Off mode bypasses the compression function, emulating the signal hitting the FET gain
  • reduction element and causing the “pleasing” distortion caused by the hardware’s pre-amp.
  • Range : Comp On, Comp Off
  • Default : Comp On
  • Waves CLA-76 User Guide
  • Revision selects the type of modeled compressor.
  • Range : Bluey, Blacky
  • Default : Blacky
  • Analog controls analog characteristics caused by noise floor and hum, based on the power
  • supplies of the original units.
  • Range : Off, 50Hz, 60Hz
  • Default : 60Hz
  • Meter toggles between Input, Gain Reduction, and Output metering.
  • Range : In, GR, Out
  • Default : GR
