Waves releases free CLA EchoSphere plug-in for Black Friday only


Waves has announced the release of a new free plug-in, CLA EchoSphere, a slap delay and plate reverb from Chris Lord-Alge. It's available for Black Friday only.

Designed with mix engineer Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Muse, Bruce Springsteen), CLA EchoSphere combines Chris's #1 slap delay and #1 plate reverb.

Waves says:

This is CLA's go-to combination for lush lead vocals, based on his settings for two of his favorite hardware units.

You can easily blend the two effects using the plugin's faders – either in parallel, or with the delay sent to the reverb, as Chris does to achieve his unique lead vocal sound.

Use this stellar-sounding slap/plate combination to turn any lead part – whether a lead vocal, guitar solo or lead synth line – into the standout element of your production.


  • Chris Lord-Alge's #1 slap delay and #1 plate reverb effects.
  • Based on CLA's favorite hardware reverb and delay units.
  • CLA's go-to combination for mixing lead vocals.
  • 3 selectable slap delay EQ slopes (analog tape speeds).
  • Modulation control to add texture and spread.

I was exited to get the free CLA Echosphere but disappointed to find out after installation that it is a V12 plugin and will not function on my computer or your yours without a "metal' GPU card. I have a early 2011 MacBookPro and not able to update the to new machine. It would brilliant if Waves kindly design a version that will work on older machines. There are many of us that cannot afford to pay one company annually or monthly for use of their plugins no matter how good they may be. Dear Waves, please consider the above, I have purchased a considerable number of your products over the years.

Many thx.
