Fantastic and powerfull!

Make the vocals shine in my mix, even any instruments.
Better than LA-2A for a lot of things. At this price it's a gift.
Don't ask what should you do but ask what you can do for your mix.
U.A.D. Tube-Tech CL 1B Compressor is the answer

My new muse!

This is my goto for tracking vocals in Unison, but I love using this in the mixing stage!

Best Vocal Compressor Yet

After using the LA-2s and for some time, I was happy to say that this is one of the best vocal compressors EVER

Like an LA-2A on steroids!

That's usually how I describe the CL1B to people that haven't heard it in action. It has everything that I love about the sound of tube-based optical designs while having the precise controls that few other designs have. It's one of my go-to compressors for vocals but I also love the detail it brings out in acoustic guitars and other acoustic instruments. Great plugin!

One of the best

This is awesome... I don't know how they did it, but this is one of the best plugins!

Solid Addition

Tube-Tech 1B compressor has been a solid addition to my plug-in palette. Terrific on improving vocals. Give home studio a pro sound.

Helped my vocal qualities

I am pleased for my purposes that the CL has given life to dynamics in the recordings is all a matter of life-like for me and although it is very minute movements on the knobs, each move has a large effect. Thanks, UAD for the detailed work in the design of my new go-to for vocals.

이건 진짜잘걸린다

하드웨어 느낌내려고 좀 과하게 잡아주는거 아닌가했는데.......그게아니라 확실히 걸리는 느낌이다 이건강추

Underated, tight and warm compression

It doesn't have the side-chain option like the Native version does, but this is great on individual tracks across the board. The plugin itself is a 5/5, but because the side-chain is missing, from the Native version (so less featureds) I'm giving it 4/5.

Love at first try

I demoed this bad boy and instantly fell in love. To be honest I was not expecting this plugin to sound as good as the hardware, which I've used on many session, boy was I wrong! Compression is seamless with the thickness that usually only comes with tube gear, hard to believe this is all digital. I love this plugin for bass and vocals.

Really analogue.

When you move each pot you have the sensation of "something strong happen" just like the hardware version. The EQ curve also changed and sounds become tridimensional.

Amazing smooth vocals and punchy saturated bass

This compressor is very versatile and a great valve-based companion to any of the 1176 emulations. I especially loves this on vocals and bass guitar.

Nothing Spectacular...

I worked this plug in as many different ways as possible on vocals but just could not get it to handle the vox in a way that actually makes sense. The behavior of this plug was erratic; i.e its goes from too subtle to being extreme... I have not used the hardware but I can't imagine the HW would behave this way. Not sure if the reviewers with 5 stars are real people or what they are doing to makes this plug deserve such high rating. I am a pro and know how to use compressors very well. This plug is pointless for vocals, in my experience.

Great on Lead Vocals

I have to second all the reviews that have pointed out how good this compressor plug-in is on lead vocals, really nice for helping get the lead vocal to sit just right in the track! I especially like to use it in conjunction with the Neve 1081 EQ plug-in in the chain after it to brighten the highs when the compressor has the effect of dulling them a bit.

My vocal tracking standard

Love this compressor. VERY smooth for tracking vocals. It was an ongoing search for me to find the right compressor for vocal tracking, and while I enjoyed the trial and error, I finally found that magic that is the Cl1b. Attack and Release at 10 o'clock, 4:1 ratio, and 1-3 db of GR sounds great for a modern pop vocal. Thank you UA for bringing this classic compressor to your platform!

The go to compression for tracking and mixing..

Awesome emulation....
Use it everyday on mixes...
Simple tracking in with 1073 unison into this cl1b with just a db of compression is magic..
keep it up UA

I love the LA2A plugin collection. Once I got this baby it became my new love on VX. Thanks, well done.
