Exacting Circuit Emulation of Hit-Making SSL 4000 G Series Master Compressor
The SSL G Series Bus Compressor plug-in for UAD-2 is an incredibly faithful circuit emulation of the legendary SSL 4000 G console's bus compressor. The undeniable drive and punch of this G Series master compressor — modeled to exacting detail by Universal Audio and fully authenticated by Solid State Logic® — helped make the original 4000 G Series the world's most successful studio production console. Engineers have come to rely on this master compressor to "glue together" mixes like nothing else, as well as patching into it for wonderful results on drums, pianos and more.
With simple, intuitive controls and transparent compression characteristics, the G Series Bus Compressor plug-in for UAD-2 captures the iconic SSL sound with stunning accuracy. Plug-in controls comprise fixed Compression Ratios (2:1, 4:1 and 10:1), and Attack and Release controls with program-dependent Auto Release function. Continuous Threshold Control and Make-Up Gain, compressor bypass, and the original Auto Fade (1-60 seconds) feature provide full operational authenticity.
