Waves SSL 4000 Channel Strip Plug-Ins

To faithfully recreate the extraordinary SSL sound, Waves engineers spent more than a year analyzing and modeling the distinctive sonic characteristics of SL 4000 factory reference consoles and components provided by Solid State Logic. Extensive testing reveals that the Waves SSL 4000 plug-ins sound virtually identical to their hardware counterparts. Now, the classic sound of the SSL 4000 Series can be your sound.

Developed under license from Solid State Logic, The Waves SSL 4000 Collection includes 4 meticulously modeled plug-ins based on the legendary SSL 4000 Series: the SSL E-Channel, the SSL G-Channel, the SSL G-Master Buss Compressor, and the SSL G-Equalizer.

SSL G-Channel

Waves is proud to present the SSL G-Channel, a brand new addition to the award-winning SSL 4000 Collection. The power of the complete Solid State Logic SL 4000 console series is now at your fingertips.

G-Channel consolidates the equalization and dynamic controls of SSL G Series consoles into one convenient tool. The G-Channel EQ module delivers the original hardware's characteristic pre-boost dip, pre-cut rise, and broad Q for extreme frequency manipulation. The Dynamics section features soft-knee compression and limiting, a gate/expander, and automatic makeup gain for rock steady output levels. Together, they deliver the one-of-a-kind sound and convenient routing flexibility that have made the SSL G-Series console a control room classic.

SSL G-Master Buss Compressor

Based on the renowned master buss center compressor of the SL 4000 G console, the Waves SSL G-Master Buss Compressor captures the unique sound of its IC input and twin VCA gain-reduction amplifier design. This compressor has long been prized by top engineers for its ability to "glue together" tracks, and is considered by many to be the ultimate finalizer that transforms a mix into a finished record. It's also ideal for taming piano dynamics or adding punch to drums and percussion.

With gain reduction meters that mirror the originals, the SSL G-Master Buss Compressor displays levels in dBu rather than in dBFS and includes SSL's coveted Autofade feature, with an adjustable fade rate from one to sixty seconds. You can even switch the Analog modeling feature on or off to suit your needs.

SSL G-Equalizer

This four-band equalizer, modeled on the SSL G Series EQ292, offers greater gain change than the E-Series EQ, and a slightly different curve. The SSL G-Equalizer includes a slight dip before a boost as well as a slight rise before a cut, which contribute to its incomparable sound, and its broader Q allows for more extreme equalization. That's why many leading engineers use the E Channel's equalization for detailed problem-solving and mixing, and the SSL G-Equalizer to shape and give character to the sound.

SSL E-Channel

The SSL E-Channel delivers the characteristic sound of the original's all-discrete design and its Class A, VCA chip.

Equalization -- The equalization section of the SSL E-Channel is based on the renowned Black Knob equalizer, developed in 1983 by SSL in association with legendary producer George Martin. The Black Knob equalizer featured enhanced cut and boost ranges and a steeper 18dB/octave high pass filter for tighter control of low frequencies, as well as a smoother curve.

Features a High Pass Filter, Low Pass Filter, and a four-band parametric equalizer. The Split feature lets you position the Low Pass and/or High Pass filters before the dynamics processors and put the filters in a dynamics sidechain for simple de-essing.

Dynamics -- The dynamics section features a soft-knee compressor/limiter and an expander/gate modeled on the SSL LS611E. Like the original, it can be placed before or after the equalization section, and makeup gain is automatically applied to maintain a steady output level. The compressor's adjustable attack lets you choose between the default auto-sensing function which responds to your source material or a fixed 1 ms. attack time.

"A MUST HAVE!!"
Sound: WOW! All is all I can say to this plug in. I'm a hip hop producer and I need that kind of sound that we all know is king. This Plug in brought out the knock in my drums, the snap in my snares, the clearity in my intruments and samples with organic depth. If you want to upstep your production to have that classic sound? Waves SSL 4000 is a MUST! Feature: No everything was expected from waves. Great! Ease of Use: Very easy to use.. didn't take much time to figure out. Quality: Yes, by the sound quality in the end. It is awesome! Value: This product is hot because it's quality. Not much to say. Manufacturer Support: Yes, I also own the Waves API plug in. and both work well together. The Wow Factor: It's sleek and classic. Which I liked. Overall: I'm going to the useing the SSL for a very long time.

"One of the best!"
Sound: I've been searching for some type of plug-in that works the way I intended it too and this is it! As long as you record your instruments correct, then there's no way you can't get a great sound right off the bat using this. I'm very skeptical of plug-ins but this batch literally shaved off tons of extra plug-ins I was using to compensate for the sound I wanted and expected. I wouldn't suggest any other type of plug-ins cause this is a complete set for drums, guitars, bass, etc....The only issue I would say is that the vocal presets tend to be a bit bright. Overall 10+++ and a must have for the musician wanting great sound for an affordable price! Feature: You basically have everything you need, from compressors, eq's, expanders, etc... Ease of Use: Wonderful ease of Use. Like I said, you can get a great sound just using the presets included and further dial that in too your liking. Value: Worth the money!!!!! Manufacturer Support: haven't had to use support for anything because it's worked great so basically I just rated in the middle since N/A is not available. The Wow Factor: lolz it's a plug-in.....No sex appeal other than getting great sounds! Overall: Overall some of the best sounds I've ever gotten using this plug-in and I've been doing this for over 20 years.
Style of Music: Metal, Alternative, Rock, Rap, etc....
