Abbey Road RS124 Compressor – Give your music the sound of the silky smooth Abbey Road RS124 compression – the legendary velvety tones that are heard on every Beatles recording made on Abbey Road. Offering a choice of two different options, this classic tube model is the only software emulation of the ultra-rare RS124 approved by Abbey Road Studios.
Few pieces of equipment define the history of music like the RS124. Custom RS124 compressors were the secret weapon of Abbey Road engineers in the 60s — loved by Jeff Emerick for their sharp bass; Ken Scott for his deluxe guitar processing; Norman Smith for easy gluing of the entire rhythm bus. The RS124 has also been a popular choice for mastering in Abbey Road editing rooms. The RS124’s sound is particularly renowned for its thick, creamy bass, which it reproduces in classic Beatles tracks such as “Rain” and “Come Together.” Abbey Road engineers typically pushed the gain by 15-20 dB, getting great results on multiple sources.
Today, Grammy-winning pop / R&B and hip-hop engineer Tony Maserati consistently applies RS124 tones to his vocal tracks, including those by Beyoncé and Alicia Keys, to complement their stunning vocal qualities.
CLA Epic – Add epic depth to your mixes and productions: A full suite of CLA legends: 4 delays and 4 reverbs based on the best studio gear – all in one plug-in that lets you mix, lay, and internally route effects.
CLA Epic includes 4 Chris delays (SLAP, THROW, TAPE, CROWD) and 4 reverbs (PLATE, ROOM, HALL, SPACE). All modules are based on Chris’s settings of his favorite studio equipment, which he uses in various combinations in each of his mixes.
The CLA EchoSphere – designed by legendary mixing engineer Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Muse, Bruce Springsteen), combines Chris’s # 1 delay and plate reverb. It’s the CLA’s perfect combination for luscious lead vocals, based on his tunings on two of his favorite hardware devices.
You can easily mix the two effects using the plug-in faders – either in parallel or with a delay sent to the reverb, as Chris does to achieve his unique lead vocal sound.
Kaleidoscopes – brings together the most popular modulation effects of the past 60 years The company says that under the hood of the instrument is the entire history of modulation in the music industry. The plugin is based on the Dual Cascade architecture. Signal processing is carried out by means of two effect engines that can work with each other in two modes. The cascading operation applies the treatments in sequence and creates the familiar tremolo, chorus, phaser, and flanger effects. Parallel mode activates both engines at the same time and is suitable for creating especially wide, voluminous and complex treatments.
Waves Kaleidoscopes can dynamically react to any incoming signal. For this purpose, the plug-in is equipped with input-sensitive envelopes that activate effects depending on the intensity of the sound.
There are parameters for modulation speed, width, depth and resonance for adjusting the effect. Users also have access to settings for filters, mixing of the original and processed signal, as well as synchronization with the tempo of the project. Additionally, the plug-in is equipped with five processing “characters” that give the signal one or another analog tint.
