CA-2A Leveling Amplifier

Power to the producer. Cakewalk is excited to announce our very own CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier!

A Handcrafted Plug-in of Classic Proportions

The CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier captures the true performance energy of some of the most classic devices used in studios for the past 50 years. This plug-in exemplifies the height of Cakewalk’s DSP with modeling technology designed and built by our engineers.

Simple Controls With Powerful Drive

This plugin couldn’t be easier to use. Turn up the gain reduction and gain-match your signal, that’s it. The CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier’s fixed attack and release settings keep you focused on your music with unmatched simplicity.

Legendary Character, Exceptional Control

Character compression is all about creativity. With the CA-2A Leveling Amplifier you can add movement, depth, and control to your tracks with ease. Lift to your vocalist’s passages, or drive your bass guitar with the harmonic saturation heard at extreme gain reduction settings.

Our Own Touch of Modern

Cakewalk has added a secondary release type and side-chain capability to the CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier for classic dynamic mixing techniques. Pump your 2-bus or duck your bass with kick, and take control of your mixes with incredible accuracy.

"The first thing to note about the CA-2A is how responsive the meter is, and similarly the controls. Ergonomically, this is arguably the best LA-2A emulation yet." *
