CL36 shares the layout and crossover network with
SX36. Audio signal gets separated into three
frequency ranges – low (LF), mid (MF) and high (HF).
Each range has identical controls and internal
processing: you can set the clipping amount, bias
and gain. Also, you can choose between normal and
hard clipping and apply random LFO modulating
signal. After signal gets mixed back to full-range
you can filter it and pass it through one more
clipping stage that always keeps peak levels below
0dBFS. Optional Mid+Side mode produces more wider
sound. CL36 is great for taming transients like
those produced by percussive sounds or instruments
with very low attack/decay times. It can also be
used on full mixes before final limiter.
