The Most Versatile UAD Plugin

Just this one person's opinion, but if I put the SSL on anything, engage the EQ, and flip between brown and black I know I'm instantly going to get a better sound. My favorite thing to do is to put this on my 'all music buss', flip to the mic pre, gain match the output and just flip on the EQ. Brown is more earthy/bassy, black is more clean and tight. Perfection. Thanks UAD!

Fantastic plugin

This thing is a beast. I will never be able to own a physical SSL Console but now I can get the same emulated sound of one. It is responsive and colourful. I like it.

Overall Great SSL Channel Strip

The strength of the 4KE is in pre-recording, where it can really shape a sound before printing it to the DAW. There is enough in terms of EQ, filers, and dynamics to handle just about any type of source. The G-Bus compressor also works well at the end of the process, though it can be used in pre-print with the channel strip. Being able to side chain EQ and filers into the dynamics can solve some problems and the fade out on the G-Bus is gold.

The one great flaw is the legacy version of the channel strip proved to be fairly weak in its low shelf eq. I just could not make use of it and had to use the high end model if I wanted to really shape law end sounds with the low shelf.

I Don't like the idea of free reviews. But these plugins are really good.

I am using the SSL Comp on almost everything. And I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon.

Must Have

As soon as I started using the G Bus Compressor my mixes sounded better...punchier, more "happening," more musical, more glued, more like a finished, professional production. I use it on 99% of my projects now.

Powerful Swiss-army knife plugin

This is a great go-to, all-in-one plugin if you take the time to learn how to use it. I track with the new version and mix with the legacy version. The legacy is light on the dsp, so even though I only have one UAD device (Twin X Quad) I can load up the SSL legacy on a dozen tracks and still have plenty of DSP left. With the compressor, expander, gate, filters, eq and gain-staging options, you can do an awful lot while only using one plugin slot in your DAW channel. Love it!

Lots of clean gain

Of all the current unison plugins, this one seems to offer the most detailed controls with the most headroom. I use it with a km184 and Cloud 44a while recording fingerstyle and classical guitar. It is less colored than the 1073, has more gain than the Avalon, and has more detail than the 610B.
