SSL® 4000 Series Console Bundle
SSL 4000 Series Console Bundle
Great recreation of the classic strip. Finally, the gates/expansion work just as well as they do on the actual units. Fine job!
SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection - NOW, THE #1 PLUGIN IN MY ARSENAL
NOW, THE #1 PLUGIN IN MY TOOL KIT - I wanted the old G Buss to sound like this and had to work on the back end to get it. NOW I HAVE IT! This is perfect. I can finally use my favorite compressor on my Mix Bus and not hit the bottom. I can keep it tight and uncompressed. The mix knob saves me from spending time with building a Parallel Channel Strip. I can't say enough about this awesome compressor. It’s night and day from the old one to me. Thanks Guys…LOVE IT!!!
SSL 4000 E Channel Strip Collection
i absolutely love its sheen and lows but it all great !
Best Channel strip
love the compressor eq channel strip combo. works great on every track. a little processor heavy but great for my mixing work flow. The compressor is exactly what I need for most of my tracks. I like this compressor on most tracks and then slap an LA 2a on vocals and 1176 for guitars and lead instruments.
I got it
For long time, i was finding this kind of sound. The tone on vocals, drums and bass is just perfect to get a really nice punchy or get presence just only with the preamp part. So now, i always use in my mixes. Totally recommend
Packs a punch!
This plugin sounds great. I often use a hardware version at one studio where I work, and UAD really nailed the sound with this one. Great work from a great company!
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

Very successful, good result
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.
