Waves Audio has released CLA EchoSphere, a free (for a limited time only) slap delay and plate reverb plugin designed by Chris Lord-Alge.
Earlier this month, Waves announced that they will release a free plugin on Black Friday (here’s our news article about that), and users were invited to sign up in advance. One week later, the freebie is revealed!
CLA EchoSphere is a slap delay and plate reverb effect designed for mixing lead vocals. The plugin was designed by Chris Lord-Alge, and it’s released by Waves Audio. It is free for a limited time only.
Sign up today (Black Friday) to get CLA EchoSphere for free. It will be registered permanently in your Waves account.
The plugin combines Chris Lord-Alge’s two favorite delay and reverb hardware units, with the main focus on lead vocal mixing. The user can easily adjust the intensity of the reverb and slapback delay effects using the main fader controls.
As for the routing, the delay and reverb can work in parallel or with the delay signal feeding the reverb as a send effect. This is a technique that Chris Lord-Alge often uses to achieve his signature lead vocal tone.
Additional fine-tuning controls are available for both effects. The plate reverb module features adjustable pre-delay and reverb time settings. The slap delay module comes with delay time, feedback, and modulation controls.
CLA EchoSphere features a pair of master gain controls on the input and the output, a mix knob (always useful in a delay/reverb effect), and a bypass switch for the delay and reverb modules.
Also useful are the high-pass and low pass filters that are located in the delay and plate modules’ input stage. Use the filter to clean up the signal and remove any unnecessary bass content.
The plugin comes with a set of presets, and users can store their own settings as custom presets for later use. CLA EchoSphere also features full undo/redo functionality and A/B testing for the current setting.
