The Best Reverbs and Delays, Together at Last

  • 4 Delays. 4 Reverbs. CLA’s Go-to Gear.

    We collaborated with Chris Lord-Alge on meticulous sonic re-creations of his favorite hardware for reverb and delay—expensive and often rare units by Lexicon, Bricasti, Eventide, Sony, AMS, Ursa Major, and more. All sounds are available in CLA Epic, replicating the combinations Chris uses in his mixes.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Easily Stack & Blend Your Delays & Reverbs

    Masters of mixing know that the secret to epic reverb effects is stacking and layering different delays and reverbs. CLA Epic brings you that richness: Blend all eight modules easily with the plugin’s faders, and send any delay to any number of reverbs with the click of a button.


    The CROWD delay is like early reflections that grow in size and width as they decay. Send this into reverb, for an attack that’s more lush, rich, and detailed than traditional early reflections.

    The PLATE is based on Chris’s go-to lead vocal reverb, with control over pre-delay, reverb time and low/high-frequency damping (RT).

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • TAPE and HALL

    The TAPE delay module provides a rich, fat delay effect. Two separate effects (Tap 1 and Tap 2) each have different time, sync, feedback and offset controls.

    The HALL reverb is a classic effect, with the same controls as the plate but with a very different EQ curve.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • SLAP and ROOM

    The SLAP delay features 3 EQ slopes (analog tape speeds), selectable between 7.5, 15 and 30 ips.

    CLA’s room reverb sound is the result of several different reverb units sent together to the same bus. ROOM recreates this unique sound, with pre-delay, reverb time and damping controls.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material

    The THROW delay has similar controls to TAPE, but its tap inputs can be triggered manually or with automation. Use it to apply delay to a specific note, word, or sound.

    SPACE is a non-linear reverb, with decay from 0.04 to 3.5 ms. At its highest setting, it becomes a sensational-sounding gated reverb.

    Features: Precision Modeled Transformers
