SSL® 4000 Series Console Bundle
SSL 4000 Series Console Bundle
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
My Swiss knife army
Really love with this channel strip. Its my go to plugin to do many things. Really love especially for drum. Thank UAD for making this great plugins
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
love the sound that comes out this
vocals, instruments u name it ,my favorite channel strip ,i love it
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..
ok but not like the real deal
It is far better than the waves emulation so I gave it two stars but it is hungry as hog and doesn't bring the 4000e shine. I also bought the Plugin Alliance version and it smokes the Uaudio version, it has a 72 channel variation algorithm that makes the thing sound even more like the real deal and some harmonic distortion. Don't waste your money on this version, save it for the Neve pre or some reverb.
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.
Best of 4000
Best channel strip and bus compressor bundle, highly recommended.
Like lighting up a dim room...
UA and SSL’s products are legendary. Combine them and, well, the result is stunning. The sound of the SSL 4000e channel strip adds a brilliance to the track that is like lighting up a dimly lit room. You may not notice that the room needs a bit more light until you add it. That is the best analogy I can come up with. UAD NAILED it with their model! I love it so much I bought a DSP accelerator so I could use it on as many tracks as possible.
My new favorite
Use on all preamp and channel strips
The best emulation out there.
Comparing this to other versions from other renowned vendors, this is the best sounding of them all. Not much more to say. The SSL Bus Compressor goes on the drum bus almost every time, and now with improved punch and clarity. The SSL EQ is so precise and surgical. Using it as Unison opens up a dynamic mic like nothing else, even without enabling the EQ, Comp or the Mic Transformer for that sake. Just the gain stage and the switch of impedance does magic by it self.
I had the Waves version of this channel strip but the UAD version is far and away superior. No comparison. This plugin is where all my vocal tracks start.
Don't but it!
