SSL® 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection
SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection
Its a nice comp, sounds good on the mixes
Best bus compressor ever!!!!
Love this one. Really does the job!
Does it well!
I’d run the demo to try on an album I was mixing and had previously had another plugin G series comp for my rough mixes. I swapped each one in my sessions for this one on demo and was really surprised at how much more punch and drive I got out of it. Later on I was able to get even more out of it using the low sidechain filter and mix knob. Using this as a stereo bus parallel comp is now a new favorite for me. Really helps to give a mix some dynamic control without sounding squashed.

It's just better than any other Bus Compressor softwere out there!
It took me a long time to finally purchase the SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor for my UAD plugin collection, but boy did it pay off!
Before using the UAD version of this plugin, I was using the version of another major plugin software company - but it really doesn't match up to the UAD plugin in any way and I will never go back to the other version again - so I should have just saved my money to buy the UAD plugin much sooner ... ah well ... another lesson learned I guess!
It's just incredible how well it works. It audibly compresses the mix but without losing any clarity or transparancy and it ads just the perfect amount of saturation, which instantly improves the crest factor of the waveform that is produced when rendering the mix, enabling me to save so much time when mastering my tracks to get that perfect perceived loudness.
Much , much more important though: It just sounds awesome!
Put it on and SMILE
I dont know if it’s just me. But as a person who grew up on the music of early 2000 when I put this one on my stereo bus it automatically gives me the vibe of all the records I grew up on.
This is one of the 2-3 sterebus compressors that I use nowadays. And I’m not a big fan of compression on master bus. But this one truly ADDS to the song - not just compresses it. I feel 3d vibe and overall a shift in the feel of the record and I love it - definitely adds to the industry professional sound we’re all looking for
Warm, soft and pretty compressor.
I use uad's many compressors.
1176, 175-b, 176, Shadow Hill, LA-2A, Fairchild, SSL, 33609 etc.
All are very interesting compressors that sound differently.
The SSL 4000 G Bus Comp is my favorite compressor.
The reason is that it sticks well in any case.
The SSL 4000 G Bus Comp does not spoil the original source.
I also use the legacy version as well.
It's soft, warm and feels good.
When recording instruments, I sometimes use the SSL 4000 G Bus Comp instead of an equalizer to create color.
Be sure to try the 14-day demo and see if it works for you.
I love G comp
The Ultimate Glue!
I use it on all of my busses! Music to my ears!

Work on master bus, and wrks great!
Love the New G Compressor! What a beautiful sound
Mix Bus MVP
Approximately 90% of all my mixes have this compressor on the mix bus!
It's very musical and so variable!
Most 3D sounding SSL comp plugin I’ve used
I’ve tried almost all SSL comp G emulations and this one just beats them all! Most others sound like an SSL but feel very 2D and half way there. This one gives the depth that others cannot! I am giving 4 starts and not 5 cause the only thing I’m not too sure about is the stereo field, and how it reacts to a full mix/drums when compared to an actual SSL. I think the way it reacts to music is still not exactly like an SSL G comp does. Close, but UAD can get closer (and I want them to!)
A resizable GUI would have made me give it five stars, but that's really a minor issue.
Just me being picky and using a 27" high-res screen.
Still the best sounding G Bus plug-in I've tried! Highly recommended!
...what say ? Glue , and the parallel mix is the very useful
Great on mixbus!

Must have Master Compressor
My go-to-tool for the Master bus - glues everything together while keeping the clarity you need. Very impressive; turns my basement studio into a world class facility :-)
Top of my two mix
The SSL G Buss is at the top of my two mix. What else can you say about it besides its the first last piece of outboard your mix goes through.
Smooth Warm Bus Compressor
I already owned the waves version, but could never make it sound good on any of my mixes. I tried this to compare and instantly sounds better with a much smoother response not to mention the side chain feature is quite handy for opening up the mix by allowing the low end to pass unaffected. The mix control, another feature, for insert parallel compression, but I prefer the full wet sound and would rather do parallel through sends.
It’s dull sounding, unlike the original
Don‘t believe the hype
Sounds nothing like the original. Indeed the plugin is very full sounding, much unlike the actual unit (and also unlike some native emulations of it)
