Bloody Waves Audio!!!

So Waves Audio has another sale.

Only this time, they push down prices to the lowest I can remember.

Yep, I fell for it.

The CLA Classic Compressors bundle comprises four compressor limiters, based on units owned by renowned producer, Chris Lord-Alge. Included are emulations of the Teletronix LA-2A (CLA-2A - see what they did there?), the Teletronix LA-3A (CLA-3A - amazing huh?) and two versions of the Urei 1176 (CLA-76 Blacky based on the Revision D-LN Blackface and the CLA-76 Bluey based on the Revision B, also known as the Silverface Bluestripe). Only briefly tried them out and they do sound pretty good so far.


Also purloined at a VERY good price was the new F6 dynamic EQ - sort of like a multi-band compressor but based on EQ. It makes sense, honestly. Sound-wise, early to say, but I can see that it will get a lot use, particularly with the C4 multi-band compressor which is one of my favourite and definitely most-used plugins.


And lastly, the Abbey Road Reverb Plates, a plate reverb (as if you hadn't guessed) based on the four massive reverb plates housed in the Abbey Road Studios in London. Again, first plays with it, using a loop from Spectrasonics Stylus RMX, are really quite interesting and the effect is quite lovely.


They have the Studio Classics Collection (stonking emulations of API, SSL and Neve consoles) up for a mere $199 - but I can't quite stretch to it!!! :-(
