welcome to the ArtsAcoustic CL Series.
the ArtsAcoustic CL Series is a bundle of 3 accurateley analog-modelled photoelectronic dynamic processors, nameley CL-1, CLMS-1 and CLMS-1 XL. they`re based on various analog optoelectronic diode tube compressor schematas used during the late 70`s up to the mid 80`s.

why another vintage compressor/limiter bundle?
there are several other compressor/limiters out in the plugin realm, so what was the reason for us to do dynamic plugins, too? the answer is simple: the sound. while a lot of compressor/limiters claim to give you the true analog sound, we think that there is still room for a lot of improvement. in short: in our opinion it`s not done by simply adding a bit of saturation at one place in the signal chain. there`s way more to it.

so what was the goal?
our destination was a dynamics processor suite that gives us what we precieve as true analog sound. of course that`s subjective. but spending the last 25 years with every compressor we possibly could get our hands at, we felt that the sound, while certainly good on some plugins, still isn`t what we precieve as analog sound with strong character. so through the last 1 1/2 years we`ve dissected every rare analog high end compressor/limiter we own or could get our hands on (1176 silverplate, dbx 160, valleypeople dynamite, to name a few). developing the compressors, we didn`t stop at just emulating the circuit structure, but we modeled the crucial parts of the units themself (such as transistors, resistors, capacitors, etc), where we felt it was necessary, as only then the desired effects take place. the result is an algorithm that provides the same sound of an analog circuit, along with all beautiful side effects we love from those old, colourful machines. out of this algorithm the cl series came to life. it is our contribution to get truly musical, analog sound into your digital hosts.
