SSL® 4000 Series Console Bundle
SSL 4000 Series Console Bundle
The preamp alone makes it worth every penny even at it's full retail price.
SSL punch. Is it the EQ? the compressor? the preamp? The bus compressor? Buy this plugin and find out.
This plugin is the SSL experience minus the one thing UAD cannnot give us. The pleasure of actually working on the console.
All the Unison plugins offer something different and they are all worth it.
Essential to every mix...
From Unique Recordings to Powerplay Studios to Hit factory to my home studio the SSL sound has been apart of my work since the 80's and Universal Audio captured it perfectly!
a step up from the previous had emulation
Surgical and musical
SSL is my go to EQ for drums. I love how with this plug you can boost a lot of top end without it getting “digital.” Other digital EQ’s take note.
This sounds great
I love this ssl. It Sound great on everthing. The best ssl plugin I've heard by far.
Excellent sound !
This is an excellent sounding plugin emulation of the SSL console! Been trying the Unison and it is just great! The only downside to this is the DSP consumption. This one is hunger for it.
This has the SSL Quality you been looking for Big Fat Depth. In your Face. UA did Solid State Logic Justice. Try the Unison as well. Woooohoooo!!
Thank You Universal Audio!! ;-)
That is it!
Ich arbeite oft an einer SSL Duality und muss sagen, dass dieses Plugin etwas ganz großes ist. Die Emulation ist fantastisch und der Klang enorm gut nachempfunden. Das einzige Manko ist vermutlich, dass man keine Knöpfe anfassen kann, aber hey, es ist halt Software. Aber Vorsicht: Das Ding ist relativ rechenintensiv ;)
6 of 5
Definitely the best SSL emulations available.
It is easy to describe the perfect quality of this plugin in one word: UAD
This is a great hardware emulation. I've been able to work on the real board and this is an excellent substitute for giving up an entire room with the board. I love it and it ends up in ALL of my mixes on everything from drums to guitars to basses to voices... you name it. Well done UA!!!
Probably my Favorite SSL G Comp
I have a Hardware SSL G comp. I do think the hardware sounds better than any of the software I have used including this one. I do think this is the best software G comp I have used. When I need two G comps I use this one. Like on Drums when I have my hardware on the master buss. I do not always use it on the drum buss but sometimes when you need a little bit more punch on the drums.
I regret the investment
Since i own it now for a while i had to rethink my decision to update to this new version.
It´s absolutley not about the sound it inherits, the root cause is this extraordinary hunger for DSP.
This is around 80% and makes your UAD2-quad stuck, it is a complete no go.
The older was 10%, even that is relatively a lot for a single Channelstrip!
Now you can use as much as 4 Stripes only and not much other plugins on top. That is completely useless. Using some normal UAD´s plugins in a mix do consume DSP yet, in most cases only ONE INSTANCE of this SSL is possible, or even none.
Buying more DSP and the fault stays: it makes simply no sense to use up so much DSP for a plugin that should emulate a mixing console in which there are usually 10 channels on, or even much more at least.
Even as Mic-Pre it is never that good to sacrifice so much power.
I was blinded by the top ratings of others.
The old one does work good enough and you can run 8 instead of 1 !
for years I have used the simulation of other software houses but once I've tried this I think I'll never go back.
It is simply fantastic the sound that you can pull out, warm, clean and precise.
Absolutely to have this too!
Best simulation on the market.
Best Plugin of them ALL
If there is ever ONE plugin that represents the quality, effort, attention to detail, and craftsmanship that UA puts into their product, then this is it. After working in studio with physical SSL's for over 7 years, having this tool ITB is a game-changer for any audio engineer. Keep this tool in your toolbox at all times!
SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Legacy
ドラムのバスコンプによく "レガシー" をインサートしています。とてもスウィートなサウンドになってヤミツキです。
Uad SSL stomps on the waves versions
Very simply put... the waves versions are spitty and crunchy the UAD SSL channel strip has what seems to be 20 db more headroom and a smoother character. I’m finishing up a record and recently bought an Octo UAD... these have taken my mixes several steps closer to the goal line!! Thank you UA for some amazing work here!!
Perfect on Busses
I was surprised - still expecting - how well this Compressor behaves on my Drumbus and Masterbus. It's very subtle but still very powerful. This Plugin is one of my favourite and most needed amongst my other Plugins.
For me the most realistic SSL-Emulation available! Can't tell the difference!
I noticed how this emulation has a level of control that’s different from the legacy version. The side-chain feature is awesome and the professional clarity and bump makes my music sound radio-ready!
SSL 400 Series Bundle
Very good, authentic emulation of the original hardware.I use it all the time.
