SSL® 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection
SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection
Wish I’d known before
Got a recommendation for this plugin from a pro Mix engineer colleague because I asked him for something that would help me get more volume and body from my mixes. Said he uses it for every mix he performs. It’s been a huge boost for me. Even though we need to learn to be patient and wait for the final max volume from the mastering process, the 4000G at the end of the chain in the mix has been inspirational for me. It has allowed me to get more “loudness” from my mixes without the distortion that might come from certain maximizers. And it def does have that “glue”. Especially if you’re working with MIDI /samples that are taking the place of a “real” instrument . This is where the “glue” effect makes a big difference. You get a “fatness” that’s often missing. This plugin is exactly what I was looking for.
The best emulation
A handy tool indeed.
Thanks again UAD for another fine product
SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection
Very nice sounding plugin, native version would be nice.
Classic sound, with SC filter. Rocks!
The legend is in your hands!
Accurate, fast, very adequate to your settings and parameters ! Thanks Uad for recreating the legend!
Glue and transparency for Mixbuss
BUS-SSL is great for pop music, ballads; when it comes to Rock and HipHop it works well.
Had to mix 14 songs for a client recently. I used the SSL Bus Compressor on 7 of the tunes that went to mastering. It glued the tracks together and addd a little more punch to the mixes. The sidechain feature that the hardware did not have enabled keeping the low end in tact while puttung the mix a little more in your face. UAD version sounded much better than the Waves version.
Better than the rest
It pains me to say it, as i work in multiple different studios and cant carry around my satellite everywhere, but this is just better than all of the emulations - including the plugin by the original company. Unfortunately, until it comes out natively i wont be able to use it for the main bulk of work i do.

For DJ's that use their Apollo live!
DJing with rekordbox Pioneer, I send my output to the virtual channels in Console so I can add some low latency bus compression to help with volume control and upward levelling. This one rocks for most pop and house, together with the Elysia alpha!
Annoying DRM doesn't work
The SSL plugins I bought did not show up in my UA Connect. This is an annoying waste of time. This company cares more about DRM and money than being reliable.
UAD SSL Bus Comp, Well worth the investment!
SSL G BUS Comp we use to use this heavily during the hardware era!
Many have tried to emulate it.
Nothing comes closer than UAD SSL G BUS, It matches the hardware 90 -95 %
I love to use the SSL G BUS to give that classic glue to the mix!!
Well worth the investment!
Thank you UAD!
I used to think a lot of SSL Bus Comp emulations sounded adequate until I entered into the UA world and demoed this product. Lasted 2 days on demo and purchased. Sounds noticeably more 3D and "gluier?" then others out there. No pumping or plastic sounds here! Do yourself a favor and give it a go!
A must have plugin
I love to use the SSL G BUS to give that ‘glue’, specially on my main bus.
For real SSL "glue" look no further
Amazing emulation of famous SSL Bus Compressor. It's now permanent part of my master chain and works & sounds brilliant on mixes!
Lives on my mixbus
Glues my vocal bus and/or mixbus together nicely, therefore I use it all the time!
It matches to the 90 % of hardware emulation ❤️
Professional results, spoken here.
A simple, intuitive, time-tested compressor gives punch and stability to bring together individual tracks and final mixes.
Best Sounding Emulation
This is easily the best sounding emulation of an SSL Bus Compressor I've ever heard!
