About Chris Lord-Alge/CLA Classic Compressors
The CLA Classic Compressors were developed in collaboration with Chris Lord-Alge. With an engineering/mixing career spanning almost three decades, Lord-Alge has worked alongside such artists as Green Day, U2, Tina Turner, James Brown, Nickelback, Rod Stewart, Santana, Steve Winwood, Celine Dion, and many others. At the heart of his sound is a command of compression that gives each and every track he mixes its radio-ready punch. During the development of CLA Classic Compressors, Lord-Alge worked closely with the Waves R&D team, resulting in impeccable models of four compressors considered true classics by audio engineers the world over. About Eddie Kramer/The Eddie Kramer Collection
The Eddie Kramer Collection five application-specific plug-ins, with dedicated tools for guitar, drums, vocals, bass, and effects, are the result of close collaboration between Waves' R&D team and legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer.
