I just bought this bundle today and threw it on a few tracks in a Ziggy Stardust cover I'm messing with. No automation or serious mixing. Amazing. Cheers!

do these CLA package plugins use the same software algorithm as the CLA compressors do? i would think they could copy and paste the CLA76 code right into here to use it

how do you get rid of the static noise that comes from having the compressor on in the plug in?

What does he mean by sidechain the effects? Sidechain them to what? The kick?
Scott W 1 year ago
He just means it loosely. i.e that after the EQ and Compression gets added, each of the 3 effects that follow (Reverb, Delay and Imaging ('Pitch')) is going to its own invisible aux channel, each one with 3 different plugins on it (e.g. the reverb will open a completely different unit emulation for each of 'tight', 'large' and 'chamber', etc). Nothing to do with the usual sidechains for compression or high-passing, more like 'parallel bussing'

Did he say Winger in a funny way ? Oh Mike Shipley (God Bless his Soul) was the guy who mixed Winger Pull and also Kip Winger This Conversation album.so Chris go mix your boring pop productions. Mike and Kip is so beyond your sonics. and BTW I have this and other plugins by CLA. check out the Peak levels.all red all the time. and sounds boxy. watching this feels like selling snakeoil back in the day.next.

My one question is how to deal with de-essing? The introduction of high-end boost and compression will surely worsen a sibilant vocal. So the only choice is to put a de-esser after CLA Vocals, which also places it after the delay and reverb.
creative media 2 years ago
Kip Count - best is to take each ess l or shh and make them 5 to 8, maybe 10 db lower volume. at least 5 db. problem solved. no need for a de esser. and also do this to the t or tch.

EQ is going into the compressor, reducing intensity than if it was the other way around.
polymerizedrecords 2 years ago
Not with CLA Vocals. Have you used it? I'm sure they done some kind of magical de-essing trick imbued into the EQ because I've ran it across dozens of vocals and never got any sibilance, which is crazy. Waves has a bunch of these artist plugins and most have a vocal effect but no other comes close to this plug. I don't know. It just works.
Jure Beton 2 years ago
so this vocal is just recorded through 1176 and the only plugin inserted on vocal is this one ? I am SOLD!

I'll admit this plugin is magical.

Just bought this plugin. I was running 5 or 6 plugins (Logic and IK Multimedia) on my vocal tracks. Took out everything but the IK White 2A Leveling Amplifier and added the CLA Vocals. Everything sounds so much better. Two words: Get this!

moeelgenial 3 years ago
You can't go wrong with this plugin. Use this in the track and Cla unplugged in the aux. Voila best 500 invest.

Does anyone know ,,If I can add this plug-In directly on the track??Or do I need to create a Auxilary track, and leave the original vocal track dry??

Thank you Chris. I use your CLA signature vocal on many many things. I play and record tabla a lot and the WALL and SPANK makes the Tabla so full sounding. The CHORUS is my go-to hours. Its wonderfully fully sounding, without making things synthetic sounding.  Yes you can't alter the effects much, but CLA knows his stuff, and i use CLA vocal on every CD i produce. Awesome stuff.

I wasn't impressed with the cla bundle. 7 day demo and haven't missed it.
polymerizedrecords 2 years ago
CLA bundle isn't that impressive, but this plug is the best all in one plug for vocals by far.

+Elijah Hennig It's on sale right now for $99 until tomorrow. Edit: The sale is a vocal collection, which includes the CLA Vocals, along with Eddie Kramer vocal, JJP vocal and Maserati VX1 for $99. CLA is normally $149 by itself.

+SticksNkicks It's meh overall, but I'd buy it on a good sale.

im guessing to automate from one reverb or delay preset to another you would 2 instances of the plugin?
polymerizedrecords 2 years ago
So - I had tried it on PT with no success. I open FL studio and not only it allowed me to, as it was so easy I almost wanna hit myself.
polymerizedrecords 2 years ago
Depends on the DAW - but I haven't been able to do so so far.

+Troy Musson Program Change MIDI Message too maybe; or you might just be able to find the parameter in your automation list on your track.

Question?is this plugin put directly on the insert or is it placed on a bus and use as a send?
Original Melody 4 years ago
Waves are doing great job keep it up, One of the best plugins. Waves know the best audio mastering. Love your products and we want them more.

Is anybody treating the vocal track (subtractive EQ, HPF etc.) before inserting these plugins?  Or are you just slapping this on top of the raw track?
TheChosenOne 3 years ago
+Sing4LTS Hell yea they are. They ride the gain, gating, use a little EQ, harmonic enhancement, tube saturation, then they probably stick this on it.
010101Gaming 3 years ago
+Sing4LTS The vocals to Boulevard is treated before the plug in. You can hear it. So I assume so but that's just what I'm understanding.

It's a great plugin, it sounds awesome, and I love the entire CLA bundle. Even Pensado uses it. But I feel like it can be a bad practice to use it too often, you know?
Prince Mallerd 4 years ago
I love what this plug-in does to the vocals but it's so dog on much to where it muddies the mix. You have to do some tweaking to it.
