WAVES CLA-76 Compressor/Limiter

WAVES CLA-76 Compressor/Limiter is inspired by the legendary mid-’60s limiting amplifier, beloved by Sound 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.

The Key to Hard-Hitting
Dynamic Mixes

Unlike the smooth sound of optical control-based compressors, the CLA-76 models the ultra-fast response, and tube-like distortion, of FET control circuitry. This plugin models two CLA-76s, based on hand-picked hardware that represents the best of the many revisions that were produced.

Tight, aggressive, and with a big, bold character, the CLA-76 is a favorite of acclaimed mix engineer Chris Lord-Alge. We modeled his two most-prized hardware units, “Bluey” and “Blacky,” both perfectly maintained in his studio—so you can have their sound in your mixes.

Classic Compressors Revered by
Generations of Engineers Tone

Give Your Drums Muscle and Tightness

The CLA-76’s tight compression sound, based on program-dependent attack and release times, is a natural for drums. With the incendiary ALL ratio mode for extra explosiveness, CLA-76 lets you mix a muscular drum sound that erupts with power.


…And Not Just Drums

One reason the CLA-76 has stood the test of time is versatility. Ease back on the compression, and let the leveling-amp design give consistent, steady compression on vocals, bass, guitar, and keyboards.


Choose from Two ’76 Flavors

With models of two distinct hardware units from mix legend Chris Lord-Alge’s personal collection, you can choose the right tool for the right job. The models have different gain stages, time constants, and harmonic distortion.


Super-Fast Compression,
Perfect for Transient-Heavy Sounds

Many compressors aren’t fast enough to handle transients, and generate clicks even with fast attack/release settings. But the CLA-76’s incredibly fast response keeps transients under control—and clicks out of your mix.


Presets Created by Chris Lord-Alge

Get great starting points for your mixes, with over 30 presets prepared by Chris Lord-Alge himself—plus presets by more Grammy-winning producers/mixers such as Greg Wells (Dua Lipa, John Legend).
