Cakewalk CA-2A T-Type Levelling Amplifier (Serial Download)


With the CA-2A T-Type, Cakewalk have faithfully modelled one of the most highly-renowned electro-optical tube-based compressors on the planet. This legendary piece of hardware has previously only been available to big studios with even bigger budgets, but thanks to the wonders of technology, every studio can - and should - now experience it for themselves.

Easy to use, the CA-2A is operated via a few simple controls and yet the professional results that it provides are astounding. Featuring native x64 operation, zero-latency performance and 64-bit double precision audio fidelity, Cakewalk really have cut no corners in providing an authentic experience.

Get the kind of smooth, warm sound heard on so many classic recordings, at a fraction of the cost and with modern convenience.

 

The characteristic sound of the original hardware unit is a result of both its tube design and the famous T4 circuitry – and the CA-2A T-Type Levelling Amplifier meticulously models both. The T4 circuit is made up of an electro-luminescent panel partnered with and an optical photocell that, together, determine the the attack and release time - all based on incoming program material. The four tubes in the original hardware unit were also carefully modelled giving the CA-2A its warm character. The tubes slightly change the shape of the signal, adding even and odd harmonics based on the frequency of the incoming program material.

Cakewalk even went so far as to model the user-adjustable “R37” screw on the original unit. Turning the R37 screw controls how much compression is applied to high-frequency content, such as vocal sibilance. Every detail of the original hardware has been carefully considered and incorporated into this stunning software model.

 

Because it’s essentially a tube amp with some photo-resistors there is no electronic circuitry involved in the compression process. This simple yet clever design offers flat frequency response and transparent sound with automatic attack and release times that are completely program dependent. Unlike typical dynamics processors that have a fixed compression ratio across all frequencies, the CA-2A T-Type Levelling Amplifier’s gain reduction varies at different frequencies. This unique design only reduces gain to a certain point before “giving in” and allowing the output level to naturally increase again. These characteristics play a big part in its smooth and transparent sound and why it is so universally revered as a vocal compressor. But it’s equally at home on guitars, bass, wind instruments and any other highly dynamic source material. Silky smooth and easy to use, the CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier is truly a must have dynamics processor.

 

In addition to adding support for VST compatible DAWs, the CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier also includes side-chain capability allowing the compressor to react to program material from one track, and apply it to another. This is an improvement that many mixing engineers will find useful for a wide variety of use cases, such as ducking or pumping of synth sounds in EDM.
