I LOVE IT
The game changer.
I just don’t know how I processed tracks before this one.
Not only does it emulates perfectly it’s hardware counterpart, but it also adds a little je-ne-sais-quoi to any input.
And, with the Unison tech inside, it transforms about any input source. I already tried it on a Fender Telecaster -it gave body to the sound like no other plugin-, on a JazzMaster bass -and it helped bring beautiful, colorful harmonics to both ends of the spectrum -, on an Alesis Strike Multipad -and every kit, every sample came to life on a whole different level- and vocals -and it just warmed up the source-.
It’s one of my go-to Unison plugin.
And mixed with the SSL glue compressor, it just makes for an every-type-of-situation tool that will add analogue feel and warmth to your productions.
Best channel strip
I was struggling to find my favorite channel strips lately, SSL-4000 is the answer for my prayers, Also loving the compression and gate. I can now plug in a toaster or a tooth brush and it will sound GREAT ! Thank you UAD keep up the good work!
SSL 4000 E Channel Strip Collection
I like it's user friendly UI. Like on drums very much. Vox is good too. It's all good..LOL
Знаю эти приборы давно!
Самый прозрачный, мягкий и правдивый звук!
A classic to have!
The EQ section is amazing! It had helped me a lot shape the important elements in my mixes (vocals for exemple)!
But it's a shame that its CPU consumption is significant!
All purpose channel strip
So I pulled the plug on this with the 12 day of Xmas sell. Pulled up a bass drum guitar session and started tweaking the drum track. It is awsome! I ended up adding it to the bass and guitar. This may become my go to plugin. It does it all!
Punch and Power
SSL 4000 is very useful bundle for me. I use it every day. I take the channel strip for recordings drums, some time for a bass and I set the compressor in a master buss for every mix session. We work often with a rock music and Buss Compressor gives me amazing punch and slightly pleasure analogue colour. Sometimes I use the SSL Channel strip like distortion source. Just increase input gain and Woo a la!!! You have incredible, really interesting sounds distortion for your snare! Definitely five stars.
Can't describe how much better this is than the Waves version, which I always wanted to use but always provided mushy disappointing sound. This thing is crisp and gorgeous, and the added functionality of the preamp section (as an insert, not even talking unison) and the combo black/brown in the same plugin is just great. Love it.
Love the New G Compressor! What a beautiful sound
Good channel strip
I have never worked with a real SSL, so my opinion is based on "What I Get", and not a comparison.
So far I have used the strip on recorded drums, a clone-wheel B3, Kawai grand, and vocals.
Using presets as starting point for drums made it real easy to get an excellent kinda 3D sound, perfect for pop, rock and country. It also makes the B3 shine, giving it a subtle bite, and it was easy to get excellent sounds from the piano, both lively acoustic sound, but also a more pop'ish shiny sound.
For vocal, I only used it once until now, and the strip was adding exactly what I expected to that performance. But I did no experiments on vocal tracks.
I have a feeling that 'this must be like using an SSL' - under all circumstances Iam very pleased with this strip.
Beware though, that you most likely will spend more money on DSPs shortly after ;)

One, two, one, two.
Hard to say how good is this. Very good. :D
One of my favourites.

One of the best!
Pure love of SSL sound. Unisons pres are so cool. And this unison pre kicks your mind to outterspace. It sounds like a heaven! Pre is sweet. Dynamics brings that sweetness a bit closer. And by EQ you can colour your heaven just as you want!
Despite high dsp usage, my faf. strip!
SSL 4000 E plus quality ...
I bought my first UAD plugs, it's more 10 years old...
the legacy channel strip version was a tool that I used a lot...and then I tested this new SSL channel strip !!!!!!! Whoo! A big slap in my ears. In a few years the quality of the emulations has become impressive, in fact, I confess that I have put all these old versions to bed... - And here is my problem / the price too high to reinvest in all these new versions
EVEN THE PROMOTIONS PROPOSED are too expensive for me ( I am not a professional musician)... So I use other plug-ins like those of ........( no advertising) that have been purchased more recently . Too bad for UA my budget is not really important. Thanks also for the nevechannel strip 88RS which is also more than excellent.

Mix Bus MVP
Approximately 90% of all my mixes have this compressor on the mix bus!
It's very musical and so variable!
Best preamp and EQ hands down
Use the mic preamp w/ Unison and your mind will be blown. Exceptional EQ too.
Most 3D sounding SSL comp plugin I’ve used
I’ve tried almost all SSL comp G emulations and this one just beats them all! Most others sound like an SSL but feel very 2D and half way there. This one gives the depth that others cannot! I am giving 4 starts and not 5 cause the only thing I’m not too sure about is the stereo field, and how it reacts to a full mix/drums when compared to an actual SSL. I think the way it reacts to music is still not exactly like an SSL G comp does. Close, but UAD can get closer (and I want them to!)
A resizable GUI would have made me give it five stars, but that's really a minor issue.
Just me being picky and using a 27" high-res screen.
Still the best sounding G Bus plug-in I've tried! Highly recommended!
