Waves Audio has announced the release of this year’s Black Friday freebie.

The CLA EchoSphere plugin is a slap delay and plate reverb developed in collaboration with Chris Lord-Alge.

Waves CLA EchoSphere

The plugin is based on CLA’s favorite hardware reverb and delay units, delivering a go-to combination for mixing lead vocals. It includes 3 selectable slap delay EQ slopes (analog tape speeds) and modulation control to add texture and spread.

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

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.

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX formats, the plugin is free to download through Black Friday.

Waves currently is also offering a 60% discount on all its plugins and bundles and up to 2 free bonus plugins with a purchase.
