Black Lion Audio Bluey FET Limiting Amplifier by seawell
This is one of those odd situations where a plug in inspired me to check out a piece of hardware. I've always loved the Waves CLA-76, particularly on vocals and drums. When I tried certain Rev-A clones I never quite got the reaction I was used to in the plug in(particularly the speed of attach & release times).
Once Black Lion Audio released promo material for their Bluey I realized that CLA's Bluey had been modified quite a bit. Once I got my hands on the BLA Bluey, I finally got the response I was used to in the plug in(and beyond). I put together a video running several different sources through the Bluey that you can check out below. This thing absolutely slays on vocals and drums(check out the saturation in the mono drum room mic example)
