SSL® 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection
SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection
I use the SSL G-Buss on every master fader. Usually classic center compression. MSTR buss in order: Precision Limiter, Manley Massive Passive eq, SSL G-Buss, and an Ampex 102.
The best comp!
Is this the best compressor to have? Yes it is.
SSL 4000 G Bus
Great sounding from UAD once again sounds nice on a drum & bass bus glues everything together nicely very happy
Obviously with compressors you need to know what you’re doing otherwise you’ll end up with an unintentionally spicy mix. The SSL is a strong bus compressor and definitely has this midrange push and presence you get at 4-1 when you mix into the compressor, leave the gain knob at unity and keep the needle hovering between -3 and -6. That’s the ol’ Andy Wallace trick and it sure gets you that rock mix tightness with the drums up front and the guitars pushing the speakers. Otherwise the actual color and vibe is unmistakable. This bus compressor is clean and has this metallic sheen to it that is really fantastic. I was going to pick one bus compressor and live with it. Definitely not sad I finally bought it. I must have trialed it 3 times.
My new favourite plug-in .......
.........this provides the “glue” that I’ve heard mentioned so often in the past.
The best om the market
I use it every day on my mix for glue my bus and the final mix thabks UA.
Smooth as a baby's a$$
Really cool comp. highly recommended, especially on a sale like for the last one. Thumbs up UAD
best bus compressor
it just glue every thing together, gives u that musical sound with out pushing it to hard,a must have , I love my bus compressor
..to other versions of this legendary compressor. Many have nailed the look of it, but few have nailed the sound. UA flexing muscles with this one. It will never leave my mixbus. psst..try it on your drums as well..
Versus a 500 Series SSL G Series Compressor, UAD wins
I cannot tell the difference sonically between an 500 series SSL G Series Bus Compressor and the UAD plugin version. Price wise there is a big difference, UAD Wins. The flexibility of the UAD version can't be beat.
This is super smooth. Your guitar buss will thank you for this.
Master Buss Boss
SSL 4000 is a good compressor for -master bus- and much more.
This has been crowned my goto bus compressor...
The G bus compressor is superb. While it shines and sounds great without any additives at all. The addition of the sidechain is clearly the stamp that sold me. This saves time and headaches.
Best SSl G bus
Best SSl G bus compressor trust me i have tried them all.
Very good musical compressor, glue it all!
Always stands on my Bus drums and at the end of all tracks to glue.
As soon as I started using the G Bus Compressor my mixes sounded better...punchier, more "happening," more musical, more glued, more like a finished, professional production. I use it on 99% of my projects now.
A must have
G bus sounds subtle yet punchy, love it on the mix bus. definitely recommended!
SSL G Master Bus
Purchased on a great sale price , tried several clones but this is the one get bar none
Has all the richness of the original console and as advertised it is "the glue"
