        Comments about Waves CLA-2A Native:

        I do EDM. For me I can use this on vocals to achieve that creamy but distinct and a little gritty radio vocal sound. Seems limited in EDM to just vocals but but if you want a not so precise sound you could add it for a saturated sound to stuff. For EDM probably not though. Really tones things down.

        I'm not sure but my hunch is that it could probably be used all around on a earthy rock track.

        Great vocal sound well worth the money. I can use it as many times as I want. Incredible.
