How does the CLA Epic multi reverb and delay plugin sound across an entire production? Find out, track by track, with special focus on the plugin’s delays-into-reverbs routing options.

CLA Epic is mix legend Chris Lord-Alge’s complete suite of 4 delays and 4 reverbs – all rolled into one simple-to-use yet EPIC sounding plugin. Based on Chris’s favorite hardware and unique analog console routing setup, CLA Epic enables you to effortlessly blend any variation of the eight effects. For producing depth and dimension CLA-style, CLA Epic also allows you to send any of the four delays to any of the four reverbs.

In this video, we:

  • 00:20 Take you on a guided tour around CLA Epic’s controls
  • 00:57 Audition each of the 8 effects using an isolated vocal track
  • 02:15 Show and explain the powerful delay-to-reverb routing tab; and
  • 04:29 Walk you through a song with and without CLA Epic inserted across each track in the mix.

As a bonus, we compare CLA Epic’s internal routing with what you would need to do inside your DAW in order to achieve the same result: a complicated arrangement of buses, sends and auxiliary tracks. Once you see these two multi-effects workflows side-by-side, you’ll see that CLA Epic not only provides all the flexibility you need when crafting depth and dimension, but is also an elegant all-in-one solution which saves your sessions from over-complicated, time-consuming routing clutter.
