Easily the best!

I’ve tried many software clones of the analog SSL bus compressor, but UA’s is far superior in my humble opinion. The full channel strip is also a delicacy. Killer job as always.

UA does it again !

These emulations of the SSL 4000 E console and 4000 G bus compressor are not only the best plugin emulations available but I'll bet any seasoned recording or mix engineer would be hard pressed to tell the difference with the hardware unit in a blind test. Bravo UA !

Best SSL emu out there!!

I’ve used SSL consoles my whole career. I love the sound and workflow of the channel strip. I’ve tried every SSL plugin out there. This is the first emulation that gets the sound right. From the inputs to the VCA outs. It reacts exactly as I would expect. The compressors are nice and punchy. The EQ can carve up anything you throw at it.

One lesser known feature of this channel strip is that even with heavy compression, it has no aliasing!! Even at 44.1. It’s a serious plugin. Sounds like heaven. My favorite UAD plugin!!!! I have 40 DSP cores so I can use it on every track.

Best ssl bus plugin

I’ve done massive shootouts and this one won by a mile. Really nice depth and 3D sound,
Waves one stunk in comparison.

Larger upgrade than expected from legacy comp

Having the side chain and mix knob alone make this worth it. but what i wasnt expecting was the actual sound of the compressor to be significantly different from the legacy version i had previously. This compressor adds width in a way the old one doesnt which can make it useful on modern music which i didnt use the legacy version on. Overall totally wroth the upgrade if you like the SSL style compression on your buss!

What is it this?

How is it possible, that everything you send through this strip just simply sounds better. I think this will be my favorite for a long long time, this thing is just in one word great!

Mast Have

I like to use on the master channel SSL BUS COMPRESSOR. When I start work on the track, I put the ratio 2: 1. attack 10ms, release 0,6s. I set the sidechain at 80Hz so that the compressor does not respond to the powerful sub bass. After all, I work with dance music. And so that the compressor worked at 2.3 dB.

Great Dynamic and punch

Lovely in the dynamic range, wicked in the punch range. As a hip hop producer, I lean towards this to make my drums sound tight and precise.
