SSL 4000 Series Console Plug-Ins Bundle

The World's Finest Emulations of the SSL 4000 E Series Channel Strip and G Series Bus Compressor, Together at Last.

For those who don't already know, The SSL 4000 Series is famous as the console series employed on more Platinum-selling records than any other. With its wide range of VCA compression characteristics and intuitive EQs — rich with colorful band interdependencies — it's easy to hear why. Today, working in close partnership with Solid State Logic, UA proudly unveils the SSL 4000 Series Classic Console Bundle for UAD-2 — a perfect match of exacting circuit emulations from these certified hit-making machines.

SSL E Series Channel Strip Plug-In

The SSL E Series Channel Strip plug-in allows UAD-2 users on Mac and PC to apply classic SSL 4000 curves and compression to their music. This unique plug-in is distinguished by its remarkably authentic sound, and its inclusion of both the Type E “black knob” and “brown knob” four-band EQ and filters, long considered favorites in SSL lineage. Other features include high and low cut filters, independent Expander/Gate, and bespoke Compressor/Limiter.

SSL G Series Bus Compressor

The SSL G Series Bus Compressor plug-in for UAD-2 is an incredibly faithful Solid State Logic-authenticated 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 — 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.

Requires a UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface available from authorized dealers worldwide and the latest version of the UAD Powered Plug-In Software (available here).

"With the SSL Plug-Ins, Universal Audio have set a new standard for analogue emulation in software." 
       – Frederick Norén (Sound on Sound)

"I was immediately impressed with how open it [SSL E Series Channel Strip] sounded compared to the [other] 4K plug-in I had been using."
      - Jeff Balding (Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts)

“I have an SSL 4000 console. So for me [UAD SSL plug-ins] are just perfect, because the curves translate so accurately."
      – Just Blaze (Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Mariah Carey)

"UA has hit another home run with the new [UAD] SSL's! They're must haves, giving plenty of bang for your buck!"
     — David Isaac (Marcus Miller, Anita Baker)

“I'm loving it [SSL G Series Bus Compressor]. It's my new glue ... You guys just saved me 4K on outboard gear ... Well done.” 
     — Geoff Sanoff (Pro Sound News)

    “There are several [plug-in] versions of the stereo SSL buss compressor… But the one I always go to is the UAD version. I’m an SSL console guy, and it sounds just like the hardware to me.”

    “The UAD SSL plug-ins are pretty amazing! I use the compressor just as I would on an analog desk, attaining the same results.”

    "On Vocals, I always use an LA-2A to a SSL E Series Channel Strip to an 1176LN to a Precision De-Esser. They're amazing."

    Love this E series channel strip
    by M. Danielson(Thursday 5 March, 2015)

    I love this plugin. It has much of the clarity and character I'd find in the hardware equivalent. I too wish it was unison tech, but am stoked to have the 1073 as a unison pre. I have very little noise floor, and plenty of headroom, and the ability to put dynamics pre or post eq makes my… Read More

    Great plugin
    by K. DURET(Thursday 12 February, 2015)

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

    SSL In The Box - You'd be stupid not to!
    by C. Norgrove(Wednesday 11 February, 2015)

    This is my go to channel strip, it has bags of everything you need. This is as close as you can get to the real thing having heard them both side by side for myself. This goes on every channel at mix down for me. It really is an amazing tool and for the price you're getting an E Series… Read More

    Punch like Tyson!
    by B. Gunkel (Friday 30 January, 2015)

    Excellent plugin for adding punch to my drum bus and smoothing out rock piano. I have the Waves version too and for me personally, the UAD version sounds more sympathetic to the music. Since I can neither afford an SSL console or afford the studio time, this tool has really helped me bring… Read More
