The CLA-76 is modeled after one of the best renowned solid state compressor/limiters in music history, which uniquely used Field Effect Transistors (FETs) as gain control devices. Some 8,000 units were originally manufactured, and went through at least 13 revisions during their run. Waves modeled two of these highly-regarded revisions: Revision B, also known as the Silverface Bluestripe. The unit we modeled is CLA’s personal favorite. Revision D-LN (Low Noise), also known as the Blackface. It is perhaps the most famous version of this classic compressor. The main differences between the two units are slightly different gain stages and time constants, as well as THD and noise levels. For the CLA-76 plug-ins, we modeled the original pre-amp noise.
