IntroductionCLA MixDown glues a mix together and brings life to it. Insert it on your mix buss and mix through the plugin or open iton a mix in progress to add depth and impact. Four faders provide control over the color, dynamics, and drive of the mix.CLA MixDown is designed to be used mostly as an insert on the mix bus, but can also be used to enhance instrumentgroup busses. CLA MixDown has many things in common with mastering processors, but it’s not intended to replacemastering. We suggest that you insert the plugin on your master buss before you start mixing and then mix through it.This helps you tailor the mix to get the most from the plugin and get the best sound.CLA MixDown is ideally suited for rock and roll and rhythm and blues. It’s also very effective on varies types of popmusic.CLA MixDown is a member of the Waves Artist Signature Series, an exclusive line of application-specific audioprocessors, created in collaboration with the world’s top producers and engineers. Every Signature Series plugin hasbeen precision crafted to capture the artist’s distinct sound and production style. The Waves Signature Series allows youto dial up the sound you’re looking for quickly, without interrupting the creative flow.A Word from Chris Lord AlgeOver many years and countless mixes, I perfected a mix chain that dramatically enhances a mix and saves precioustime and effort when going for that perfect final touch. I took this winning mixing chain and put it under the hood of asimple-to-use, supercharged plugin. CLA MixDown features two flavors of my buss compression chain to glue your mixtogether. There’s also a finishing EQ with the perfect bass and treble frequencies. CLA MixDown emulates the sound ofdriving a signal hard into an analogue mix buss, and it lets you control the amount of analogue saturation.This plugin is designed to plug and play: pop it in, set everything to zero, turn everything on, go for it!-CLA3CLA MixDown / User Guide

Getting StartedThe CLA MixDown is simple and intuitive to use. It can be inserted on any buss, but it shines most brightly when insertedbetween the buss master and the mix master. That’s what we’ll do in this quick start guide.Here’s a roadmap for your first visit to the plugin:1. Insert the CLA MixDown component on the buss master. This buss “feeds” the plugin. The insert is pre-fader, socompression remains the same regardless of fader setting. If you’re using Pro Tools, do not insert CLA MixDownon the master fader, because this insert is post-fader. This can result in inconsistent compression as levelchanges.2. Patch plugin output to the mix master.3. Increase the MixDown Input level. You’ll hear more compression and drive. There are three input meters that helpyou know when the input signal is in the right zone.a. Note the color of the Input Sensitivity LED. It should be yellow.b. The VU meter should read 0 dB at the program’s loudest points. An exceptionally loud peak can reach 2 dB or 3 dB.c. Use the digital full-scale meter to ensure that there are no digital clips. This is indicated by the red ClipIndicators above the meters.4. Set the VU meters to the GR (Gain Reduction) view. To get started, use the Glue control to achieve up to 3 dB ofgain reduction. Glue adjusts the amount of compression, which affects the “tightness” of the final mix. As you raisethe Glue setting, the mix becomes less dynamic. There are two CLA compressor types. Compare them anddecide which works best for this mix.5. Drive controls harmonic distortion: It sounds like aggressively hitting an SSL mix buss. High settings increase gritand drive. Lower settings tend to open up the dynamics. Begin with extreme settings so that you can really hearthe effect.4CLA MixDown / User Guide

6. Use the Bass fader to control the overall compression of the mix. Since low-frequency sounds have longwavelengths and lots of energy, they can inhibit a compressor from closing. This results in greater compression,but it can choke the mix.7. Adjust the Treble control to increase or decrease high-frequency presence.8. Get in the habit of doing A/B monitoring comparisons. Turn individual processing sections on and off, andbypass the entire plugin to understand what you’re doing to the mix.9. Use the MixDown input and output faders to compensate the output level as you adjust parameters.This quick start was about using CLA MixDown between the main buss and the master buss. You can insert the pluginon other busses, but make sure that the insert is pre-fader. Just follow these steps, listen to what the plugin is doing, andkeep in mind what you want to accomplish.Components and InterfaceThere are two CLA MixDown components: Mono StereoMono components can be inserted on mono channels only; stereo components can be inserted on stereo channels only.It’s relatively easy to choose the correct component.The mono and stereo components are identical except for the number of channels.5CLA MixDown / User Guide
