OVERVIEW

Classic compression with unlimited instantiation.

The CLA-3A is modeled on an acclaimed solid-state compressor originally introduced in 1969. Like its tube-based predecessor, the inspiration for the CLA-3A featured a simple control set, the T4 optical attenuator for gain reduction, and powerful program-dependent compression characteristics. Embraced by engineers and producers the world over due to their unmistakable compression behaviors and unique sonic signatures, the original hardware units are widely used to this day. Chris Lord-Alge considers these among his favorites of all vintage compressors. About Chris Lord-Alge Grammy®-winner Chris Lord-Alge is the mixing engineer of choice for pop and rock royalty.
