Product Description for the Waves CLA-3A

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!


  • Model of a classic studio compressor/limiter with the convenience of a plug-in
  • Fast response makes this an ideal dynamics controller for uptempo music
  • Maintains your sound quality even with extreme settings
  • 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 10 (in 0.01 steps)
  • Initial Value : 5.50
  • Reset Value : 4.08 (unity gain)
  • Peak Reduction controls the amount of signal compression.
  • Range : 0 to10 (in 0.01 steps)
  • Initial Value : 4.00
  • 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.
  • Waves CLA-3A User Guide
  • Compressor Mode selects compression or limiting.
  • Range : Comp, Limiter
  • Default : Comp
  • Hi Freq increases voltage amplifier gain in the peak reduction circuit, for frequencies above
  • 1 kHz, leaving lower frequencies unaffected. When set to Flat, the CLA-3A will provide equal
  • reduction to all frequencies. The more you move away from the Flat position, the more sensitive
  • the compressor is to higher frequencies, resulting in heavier 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
