Waves' CLA Effects for $29

Waves plugins have always been some of the most stable plugins I've experienced. They're cross platform compatible, so they'll work with both PCs and Macs. As a Mac user, that's a huge advantage for someone like me. They run in 32 bit mode, but Logic uses a wrapper-like application that runs so you don't interfere with your 64 bit interface. I've tried this on various different buses, and it seems to work on anything with ease. It even works nicely on MIDI, which I found a bit surprising. There are no performance issues at all, and that's a huge plus when working in a DAW filled with all kinds of synths and tracks running tons of plugins. These plugins came with my Mercury package, and I've had that for a few months now.
This is a decent plugin, but I always find myself wanting more versatility. Personally, I prefer different plugins for each individual effect rather than have some sort of all-in-one solution like this. There just isn't enough versatility to do everything I want to do. It can deliver some quality effects, and considering how it's laid out, it's very easy to get some of the tones you're looking for in your head, but I guess I'm just too used to adjustability within individual plugins.
I've currently got the Waves Ltd. CLA Effects plug-in running on my home studio's system. The system is Pro Tools LE 8 based, which I run with a Digi 002R audio interface or a Digidesign Micro Box if I'm on the go. I've got a Mac Book Pro lap top that has 4 GB of RAM and a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, while I'm monitoring with a set of Adam A7's. I haven't tried to max out my system using this plug-in, but it's been able to handle running multiple instances of it without any issues. It's also worth noting that I've used it in Pro Tools HD a bit as well without problems.
Out of all the plug-ins in the Waves Chris Lord-Alge bundle, the CLA Effects plug-in is definitely the most versatile. The others in the bundle are specifically designed for individual instruments, but this one is useful across the board and for all applications. In general I like to use individual effects processors for mixing, but there's something to be said about being able to get all of these different sounds all in one place, as it makes for easy adjusting and experimenting. I especially like the EQ on here, which is great for getting vocal effects happening. All of the effects are realistic, and they're definitely best suited when used in tandem for blending together, as all the processors in here seem to blend quite well. If you want in depth control over your effects, use individual processors, but if you're looking to get a bunch of sounds all in one place, the CLA Effects plug-in is the perfect way to do so.
