The ultimate “glue” for your mix bus,
re-modeled with stunning accuracy.

Integral to the hit-making SSL sound, the G Bus Compressor is legend for making mixes bigger, more powerful, and punchy, all the while enhancing cohesion and clarity. Fully endorsed by Solid State Logic, Universal Audio proudly unveils the SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces — an expert end-to-end circuit emulation that goes further than UA’s original standard-defining SSL G Bus Compressor plug-in.

Mix with a jaw-dropping update of the iconic SSL G Bus Compressor

Give power, cohesion, and drive to mixes, buses, or any source

Harness new features like Side Chain Filtering, Mix, and Headroom controls

Mix with artist presets from Just Blaze (Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar), Peter Mokran (The Flaming Lips, Mary J. Blige), Ian Boxill (Prince, Tupac), and more

The Only End-to-End<br />SSL Bus Compressor Emulation

The Only End-to-End
SSL Bus Compressor Emulation

Embarking on a ground-up re-design of the original SSL G Bus Compressor plug-in, UA’s team of engineers meticulously remodeled every nuance of the in-console and FX G384 rackmount specimens, including their unique CV (control voltage) summing. By capturing all of its circuit behaviors, the new SSL G Bus Compressor plug-in gives you all of the famed SSL hallmarks — punchy, transparent glue, and an ultra-accurate stereo image.

Original Recipe

Original Recipe

From subtle and transparent dynamic control to more aggressive textures with peak limiting, the SSL G Bus Compressor plug-in’s simple, intuitive control set lets you quickly dial in what you need. The fixed Attack and Release controls are SSL-voiced for bus functionality, including the program-dependent Auto Release function. Conjure "barely a wiggle" 2-bus glue, or "bury the needle" full dynamic crush with the continuous Threshold control.

Custom Enhancements

New workflow features make the SSL G Bus Compressor Collection even more vital for the modern producer/engineer. The internal Side Chain Filter allows you precise tailoring of low frequency response to reduce low-end “pumping,” while the Mix control provides inline dry/wet processing — perfect for quick parallel compression on a drum or vocal bus. The Headroom control lets you adjust the overall operating level of the plug‑in.

Fade to Black

Fade to Black

Just like the console units, the new SSL G Bus Compressor features the original Auto Fade feature, providing the signature SSL fade taper, up to 60 seconds. With the new SSL G Bus Compressor, plus the included DSP-lite SSL G Bus Compressor Legacy plug-in, you can craft your projects with Platinum‑selling sound.

      I kinda wanted to blow this one off because of all the hype, I was wrong. It does everything, everyone says it does. Sometimes the hype isn't just hype.

      Glue with Color

      It helps to add on my stereo output
      and love what it does, but sometimes its not the right tool but most of the time its exactly what I needed, recording heavy rock and sometimes put it on bass and drums too with good results.

      Best fixed all of all

      The best Could be vocals strings acoustic guitars. Flutes etc. is a hell of a piece necessary in every studio.

      Have you ever used a glue gun that work with so much easy... Where all the controls are just their looking at you and inviting you to to try more and more... I was honestly hesitant and turned out to be an excellent buy.

      Cuando salió el API 2500 integrado en Luna, dejé de hacerle caso y me ha sorprendido el efecto glue que proporciona a la vez que transparente. Espero que no tarden en integrarlo en Luna y así poder elegir entre uno y otro según necesidades.
