Product Description for the Waves CLA-2A

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.


  • Model of a classic studio compressor/limiter with the convenience of a plug-in
  • Smooth response makes this an ideal dynamics controller for vocals and acoustic instruments
  • Analog behavior modeling adds to the vintage vibe
  • Features both compressor and limiter modes for multiple applications
  • Up to 24bit/192kHz resolution
  • Mono and stereo components
  • Supports TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST, AU
  • PC- and Mac-compatible
  • Gain controls the output level of the audio path.
  • Range : 0 to 100 (in 0.01 steps)
  • Initial Value : 40.00
  • Reset Value : 32.28 (unity gain)
  • Peak Reduction controls the amount of signal compression.
  • Range : 0 to100 (in 0.01 steps)
  • Initial Value : 46.00
  • Reset Value : 0
  • 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 (most common Peak Reduction range of the LA-2A is between 30 to 50).

  • Compressor Mode selects compression or limiting.
  • Range : Comp, Limiter
  • Default : Comp
  • HiFreq increases voltage amplifier gain in the peak reduction circuit, for frequencies above
  • 1 kHz, leaving lower frequencies unaffected. When set to Flat, the CLA-2A will provide equal
  • reduction to all frequencies. The more you move away from the Flat position, the less sensitive
  • the compressor is to lower frequencies, resulting in less compression. This control may also be
  • used as sort of a de-esser.
  • Range : 0 to 100 (in 0.1 steps)
  • Initial Value : 50.00
  • Reset Value : 100 (flat)
  • Analog controls analog characteristics caused by noise floor and hum, based on the power
  • supplies of the original units.
  • Range
  • Off, 50Hz, 60Hz
  • Initial Value : 60Hz
  • Reset Value : Off
