Waves releases CLA MixDown


Waves and Chris Lord-Alge have announced the release of CLA MixDown, a mix buss plugin from Grammy-winning mixing engineer Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Bruce Springsteen, Keith Urban, Muse).

Here's what they say:

For over 30 years, Chris Lord-Alge has been the mixer of choice for rock royalty, from Aerosmith to U2, Foo Fighters to Muse. One of the secrets to his signature sound have been his unique punchy, smooth, in-your-face mix buss chains – and now they are all yours in the form of the CLA MixDown plugin.

"I perfected my mix buss chains over many years and 20,000 mixes, " says Chris. "I've taken my two favorite chains and put them under the hood of this simple-to-use, supercharged champion of a plugin. CLA MixDown features two flavors of my mix buss compression sound, plus console overdrive and a finishing EQ with the perfect bass and treble curves."

"You can use CLA MixDown on your master channel, or you can use it the CLA way – on a master aux. You can add it after you finish mixing to secure your mix with that final touch, but I recommend you insert it before you start mixing, and then mix 'through' the plugin, which will help you tailor your mix and get the best sound. Either way, it will dramatically enhance your overall mix and save you precious time toward getting that final mixing touch."


  • Simple-to-use mix buss plugin for finalizing and enriching your mixes.
  • Created in collaboration with Grammy-winning mixer Chris Lord-Alge.
  • Four faders for enhancing the color, dynamics and drive of your mix.
  • Bass fader: Controls the richness of the mix.
  • Treble fader: Increases or decreases high-frequency presence.
  • Glue: Two flavors of compression for holding the mix together.
  • Drive: Analog console overdrive for increasing harmonic distortion.

Intro Price: $29 (Reg. $99).

CLA Signature Series owners: You will receive a separate email with info on how to get CLA MixDown at a discount.

CLA MixDown is available separately or as part of the Mercury, Pro Show and SD7 Pro Show bundles. If you already own one of these bundles and a current Waves Update Plan, you may update the bundle and get CLA MixDown free of charge.
