    The Compressor

    by . . 5 out of 5 stars

    I'd held off on demoing or buying this plugin because I had the Waves version but that was a mistake. I got this one in the Apollo promo and after using this it's hard to believe that Waves and UAD are modeling the same console. The EQ on the Waves will get you most of the way there (although the UAD version is definitely superior, particularly in the brown vs black EQ option) but where this thing really shines is the compressor. The Waves compressor isn't even close and this plugin responds exactly as I remember the actual 4000 consoles responding in that it gives everything it touches an added snap and weight. Even with it being a few years old at this point, this is one of the best plugins from UAD that I've used. A real joy to work with

    Audio Labb loves the SSL E Series Channel Strip Plug-In

    by T. Calderon. 5 out of 5 stars

    This plugin is unique in the way it sounds compared to other plugins, I Like the characteristics of the SSL E Series Channel Strip Plug-In, it sounds very good on drums, that punchy sound and adds a nice presence on vocals. This channel strip can make your day and its like an all inclusive go to thing, and not putting to much strain on your Dsp card, you can load about 8 of these on a Solo and you're fine, you got to love UAD and the deals and also game changes they have brought to the new world of evolving music creation and production.

    Great plugin

    by K. DURET. 4 out of 5 stars

    Great channel strip with a light DSP usage, a must-have.
    Only 4stars because it's not unison (yet?)

    SSL E Series

    by J. Taylor-wade . 4 out of 5 stars

    Having spent many happy years using the E series ( including the very first one in BBC Maida Vale 3) I can say it certainly has much of the desks character. It would be interesting if UAD incorporate the unison technology as much of the consoles sound derives from the mic pre's.

    Best software I have tried, although the waves is quite good

    one of my fav UAD plug-ins !!!

    by T. Gee . 5 out of 5 stars

    I didn't expect to be blown away by this one - and hadn't heard people praising it like Ampex tape plug-in for instance. i already have the waves SSL, so i did not expect this one to be a favorite. But i was pleasantly surprised, and very impressed by how much better this one sounds to Waves SSL. Compressing with UAD SSL E Channel strip gives me a sonically much more solid sound, than with waves SSL comp and as a direct result helps me giving my mixes much more impact. AWESOME plug-in !!!

    SSL E Series C Strip

    by T. Carr . 5 out of 5 stars

    I mix into SSL X desks and, so all that was missing from my sound was the channel EQ and dynamics, to say I am impressed with this plugin is an under statement.
    As usual, amazing likeness and wonderful differences.

    Excellent as always

    by C. Testolini . 5 out of 5 stars

    I also own the Neve channel strip. I have to say I absolutely love the SSL E series and would recommend it to anyone looking for an analog sound.

    Both the Neve and the SSL channel strips are great but I found myself favouring the SSL E.

    Enjoy have fun mixing.

    My Goto Channel Strip

    by M. Buchbinder . 5 out of 5 stars

    I'm a mix engineer I own a private project studio. Work primarily with Pop, Rock, Blues, Hip Hop, World Music and Techno. I mixed a record in a SSL room for the first time little while ago and wanted wanted to recreate that same feel. When I got this plugin I had high expectations. Let me tell you I was not disappointed, this plugin did precisely that. It is my goto channel strip.

    Punchy and tight

    by G. Gassert . 5 out of 5 stars

    I love what this channel strip does on all my drum and bass tracks. No need for Console emulation summers. This is doing it. Gates and channel comps on these really cleans up a live drum recording.

    Sounds correct

    by J. Brennan . 5 out of 5 stars

    Again, as in my SSL compressor review, this stands up to those who know how the SSL channels sound.

    Even FLAT, you can hear a character change in the brown and black EQs.

    As true, a little tweak goes a long way. Don't bother with the others. Waves, not even close with the same settings.

    Loving this channel strip!

    by L. Adler . 5 out of 5 stars

    I've been recording and mixing on an SSL console at Fantasy Studios for years. So to get this amazing plugin that works and sounds the same is such a gift. My mixes are sounding great thanks to UA.

    SSL E series

    by J. Toy . 5 out of 5 stars

    After an initial panic caused by thinking I had bought the wrong plugin (see 4k channel strip) I settled the heart down and realised I had bought the correct plugin. I had already used the trial version so knew what to expect. I use this especially for the high pass and low pass filter, sounds great and helps balance my mixes, especially on aux busses.

    Great st

    by I. Johansson . 5 out of 5 stars

    Yupp, it makes the sound jump out of the speakers in controlled way. Makes it sound bigger and wide in a great way. Compared to the 4K strip it hold the sound together in a more pro way, that I searched for in other SSL strip plugins, but not heard until now. Expander is great and I like the BLK/BRN selector. Boosting the low and putting the Bus comp after creates a solid foundation that puts a smile on my face. :-)
