Let’s take a look at this very special Chris Lord-Alge Signature Series plugin from Waves. Coined “Lord Of The Mix”, this Grammy winner has teamed up with Waves audio in order to bring in 6 audio specific plugins for this bundle. There is certainly a lot going on here, and this package brings a lot of good stuff to the table.
CLA Signature Series:
Features (via PluginBoutique)
- Six all-in-one multi-effect processing chains
- Created in collaboration with Grammy® award-winning mixer Chris Lord-Alge
- Dedicated plugins for vocals, guitars, bass, drums and more
1. CLA Bass
CLA Bass can get you sounds from the mystic to the down right dirty. You can use bass, treble, compression, sub, distortion, and chorus/flange in order to shape the foundation of your song using CLA Bass.
Other than the Bass, you will get 5 more complete plugins in the Sig Series.
2. CLA Drums
3. CLA Guitars
4. CLA Unplugged
5. CLA Vocals
6. Classic Compressors
With all of the above VST’s in an all-in-one package, there certainly seems to be quite a bit of value here. Whether or not you would need such a package with stock plugins of say, Ableton, would be debatable. Nonetheless, for some DAW’s, these could be very welcome additions. Each of the compressors has it’s own character too, so the variety could certainly be appealing to a lot of producers.
The reason that anyone took notice of this series of plugins is because of the Chris Lord-Alge connection. He has won a Grammy and has worked with some of the absolute biggest names in music: Green Day. U2. Dave Matthews Band. Tim McGraw. Brian Setzer. Peter Frampton. Tina Turner. Rod Stewart. Steve Winwood. James Brown. Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, and more. Aka, he knows what sounds good, especially in a classic sense.
