SSL® 4000 Series Console Bundle
SSL 4000 Series Console Bundle
Love this compressor. It glues things so smoothly. Have been using the 2 week demo and am excited to purchase one day soon!
Love it for vocal and instruments
I have all the UAD compressors and if I had to choose just one, this would be it. I used it recently on a restoration project and it turned audio blobs into music. Thumbs up.
Fantastic bus compressor.
Want that final mix glue? this is the one for you. I'm lucky enough to have used a real SSL bus compressor and this plugin reminds me of it every day.
SSL G Bus
This is a definite improvement over the legacy version. Much cleaner sound and the added controls and flexibility are just icing on the cake.
Awesome on vocals !!!
The preamp has lots of gain and the eq is very musical.
Classic must have
Great on EVERYTHING!!
Always sounds great.
Must have strip.
Sounds great on Everything!!!
SSL 4000 E channel strip
works exceptionally well on drums. The EQ is very musical. I highly recommend it
Great on Main Mix
I put the SSL4000E on the backing tracks channel when I play live performances. A little light compression, a few db's of 10k, it adds a certain something that I think is sweet beyond brightening things up with the 10k EQ small change. Makes things sound bigger, punchier, and a nice clarity is the best way I can explain it that I haven't been able to achieve in other ways with other plugins.
This is a must have. I did a youtube comparison on 4 SSL Units, and UAD was the king. It's a great must have
I’ve worked on a lot of actual SSLs, and this collection of plug-ins nails every nuance. I particularly love the channel strip for drums, and bus comp on the drum bus or master. Awesome
SSL 4000 E CHANNEL STRIP OPINION
Very musical eq and clean, noble compression
Love it! Perfect for vocals
Excited to use this more
Has some real magic to it.
SSL 4k E
Almost on every channels.
Best kinda spanking there is!!!
The waves version is horrible in my book...The UAD legacy version is good, but the newest version from UAD is absolutely stunning. If you want that smack and groove from your drums...look no further. Sometimes I'll use this to get that snap and then use another compressor or limiter with a different setting in the mix to morph and gel stuff. It's really something. The push and strength of this plug reminds me of the newest Fairchild emulation UAD made. They just feel strong and have strength to push for days, unlike the anemic and weak plug ins from back in the day or other manufacturers. But I mix like I drive, and ...I drive fast. Bigger better stronger faster. I can't help it...and this plug is that. Cool side chain that you can adjust so it doesn't rob your mixes of the low end. It's that SSL sound.
Good sound but big dsp power consumption
A goodsounding strip - nice, open clear. But uses a lots of dsp power. Sometimes also mutes randomly the channel.
Unreal!! This is amazing!! Great sound!!! UAD ROCKS!!
For me still the best SSL simulation even compared to the plugin competition. The Legacy plugin is also really good and needs little DSP. With a QUAD card you can do a complete mix with the Legacy version including effects and bus compressors and such and still have enough power left.
