A Modern Opto

A Modern Opto

A studio staple across a variety of genres, the Tube Tech CL 1B takes the classic warm opto compression recipe and modernizes it with selectable Fixed, Manual, or Fix/Man attack and release settings, making it useful on myriad sources. From soft and gentle massaging of a vocal to accentuating punch and snap on drums or guitars, the CL 1B's vintage/modern approach to dynamics control make it a go-to compressor for pop royalty.

Added Versatility

The new Parallel Compression control lets you easily blend in compression on a drum loop or lead vocal, while the added Low Cut Sidechain feature keeps your sources punchy by keeping greedy low end away from your compression threshold.

Good Emulation

This is a cool compressor but very far from my favorite.
Im not a huge fan of the CL 1B.
I rarely touch it but thats only due to my personal taste.
I still give it a high rating because if you like the hardware vesrion, you will love the plugin. It is a very honest recreation.

This will give you great sonic warmth

I used to record vocals and always felt disappointed because something didn't sound like the real thing. But I can get great sonic warmth after buying it . The finished product will sound exactly like the real thing. I'm really glad I bought this compressor!

Full-bodied, warm optical compression

Has that depth and solidity that we associate with classic analog gear. I use it mainly when tracking vocals after a faster compressor (Distressor) for full-bodied, warm smoothing of dynamics. Also use it while mixing strings. Love the extra attack/release controls and artifact-free compression. Doesn't seem to have the HF bump of an LA-2A or the HF roll-off of a Summit Audio TLA. Highly recommended.

Amazing

Always wanted to compressor. It’s for smooth, warm and clean, especially when I’m tracking using the 1073 into the CL1b...incredible

Read The Manual

As an inexperienced user to this compressor I was unsure of the sweet spot and how to get my desired sound. Thankfully the manual gave me a decent foundation to build upon. At a lower threshold there is pumping but for vocals it’s recommended to have a 4-5 of compression.

Love it!

I pair this with the Avalon preamp and use it to compress hip-hop vocals on the way in and vocals come in silky smooth and transparent. Best UAD purchase I've made to date.

Spanish Review , lo mejor!

Hermoso por donde se le mire. Comprime suavemente , y en la voz queda perfecto. Desde que lo compre deje de usar el LA2A (lindo compre también ). Es tanta la fascinación por el cl 1b que encargare la unidad física en un tiempo mas. Recomendado 100 .
