The mix bus is the last stop before mastering, so engineers often add bass shelving EQ, treble for sparkle, a "glue" compressor, and console emulation. Or at least they did before CLA MixDown—which combines, optimizes, and expands these processors to deliver the ultimate mix bus plugin.

Grammy winner Chris Lord-Alge's legendary mixes have graced the music of Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, Green Day, and so many more. He knows what a mix bus needs—here it is.

"I've taken my two favorite mix bus chains and put them under the hood of this supercharged plugin. Two flavors of my mix bus compression, plus console overdrive and a finishing EQ with perfect bass and treble curves. You can use MixDown on your master bus—or the CLA way, on a master aux. You can add it after you finish mixing for that final touch—but I recommend you insert it before you start mixing, then mix through it to help you nail your mix fast."—Chris Lord-Alge.


  • Two flavors of "glue" compression deliver dazzling dynamics.
  • Four modules provide crucial mix bus processors.
  • Emulate an overdriven SSL console for color—or push for grit.
  • Creates the best possible mix for mastering.
  • Exceptionally effective, but with a simple interface.
  • Mix through MixDown as the mix develops, or add as the final step.
