SSL® 4000 Series Console Bundle
SSL 4000 Series Console Bundle
Love this thang !!!
Despite being a DSP hog, I can get the bass, vocals, guitars etc... to cut at any given moment required. It's worth it just for that.
I use it in my recording chain for tracking and in most cases the sound is so good I rarely need it during mix down, I can get by with the Legacy channel strip.
I recommend this plugin to anyone after the SSL sound.
the definitive SSL channelstrip
A big part of the SSL workflow is having everything laid out in front of you, a simple and direct interface with final controls, and the interaction between different processes. Being able to drive various parts of the channelstrip into others is where this plugin shines against the competition. The EQ sounds fantastic, the dynamics are aggressive, and the line amp/VCA drives are excellent.
I'd love to see implementation of sjidechaining added to UAD plugins - it would be great to trigger the gate from an external source,
sooo good! Punchy and gluey
Check out the presets as well. The side chain filter and the mix feature added are worth the money if you consider upgrading from the previous version.

I am an SSL super fan. I've owed both brown and black EQ E series consoles. So I have years of experience producing and engineering on these desks. I sold my SSL and switched to a Hybrid ITB setup using a Digidesign ICON as a the main interface along with a plethora of classic outboard gear. I thought I wouldn't mis the SSL... but I do.
There are many emulations that get parts of the channel strip right, but never a complete solution. Even UAD's MkI version was just, OK, imho. But this new MKII... is amazing. It really has that sound sculpting magic that I miss so much. Even the preamp has that bright cutting vibe. I may be alone, but I love SSL Preamp's for guitars and drum samples or anything that needs to cut through a mix.
The EQ and compressor are spot on. LOVE LOVE LOVE This plugin. Must buy.
PS: as always, this is not a honeymoon review. I bought the plugin the day it came out and waited to give my final review.
There it all is!!!
This is the ESSENTIAL tool for making since of your mixes.
To G or not to G

Completes my SSL Collection :-)
Used the real SSL console before. What a great feeling to have all the SSL collection form UAD. This completes my SSL collection. A little bit of G Bus compressor at mix bus for every track I mix. Never did harm :-)
Used on every song.
Just purchase the new SSL Buss comp as well for a great price on the bundle, can't mess with this really.
Really happy with this bundle of SSL.
Use it all the time along with API bundle and Neve 88R. Can't really go wrong with those in ones tool bag. Now Im just looking for that Tape Bundle, UAD hook me up! ;)
Such a powerful plugin.
This just seem like the hardware. All you need and the power and sound quality of SSL. Homerun!
This brings the classic tones to your mixes instantly! Just drive the gain and level your master output and voila... instant success!
It does what it suppose to do!
I have never worked on Real Console and I will not be telling that it sound like Real deal or something. However, it is one of a few channel strip which can do the job done will putting them in every channel. Great job UAD.
Never owned the original or anything, but this sure sounds good to me! UAD is the best
Best Software Emulation on the Market
The SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection is a must have for every Pro !
Ssl plugin is hot
Awesome Plugin sound like the real deal.
