Free Video Tutorial – De-Essing With the Waves CLA-3A Compressor

free video tutorial waves cla 3a compressor limiter

Logic Pro Expert team member and Groove3 audio software tutor Eli Krantzberg has produced a free video tutorial about using the Waves CLA-3A Compressor Limiter plugin in Logic Pro X for de-essing a female lead vocal.

See and hear how the high frequency control on the Waves CLA-3A Compressor Limiter plugin is used to act as a de-esser on a female lead vocal. As it is moved farther away from the “flat” setting, it gradually compresses frequencies above 1kHz more aggressively than those below.


As part of this weekend’s Weekend Deals, the Waves CLA-3A Compressor Limiter plugin – based on the early 70s solid-state unit – costs $89 instead of the regular $249, this Sunday only.

    In the beginning he says, the CLA-3A is modeled after a LA-2A? What?

      Yeah, sorry about that. I only noticed that after the video was posted. I should have said the LA 3A. ?
