If you've been looking for a way to get that big studio sound the SSL G Series compressor is it! This stereo bus compressor has been used on most of the biggest hit records ever recorded.
Nothing like the real deal
I've always loved the sound of the SSL Bus compressor and used it on every record I've mixed in the 90's and early 2000's. Once I started working heavily with TV composition and indie artists, I've rarely had the budget to spend in commercial studio's. I have the plugin version of this comp., but nothing beats the real thing so I bit the bullet and purchased this. (Thanks Jeff Green) I've gotten the glue and punch that I've been missing, I mix OTB so this is the perfect bus comp. to achieve the sound I want.
OUT of this world!
i dont think people give SSL enough credit for their electronics .... i have used almost any plug in and rack compressor out there and let me tell you nothing .... nothing sounds like this pice of gear .....!
My Sweetwater rep, Keith Schrieber, helped me revamp my studio and we chose this beauty to put in the mix bus chain. But, this thing absolutely rocks on drums, piano, etc. It gives you that very true and musical "spank" sound that everyone's always talking about. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!
The mix bus comp of them all
I am very happy with my SSL bus XL logic comp. It sound better to me than most on the 2 bus. Its a must have in any pro level studio. If you don't have one. Get it. I have no complaints. It kills the plug in from Waves. And kills most of my other comps on the 2bus.
Makes Me Sound Pro!
Owning one of these things makes me terribly proud. It brings an indescribable pro-sound to a project studio's mixes. I set it up midway through mixdown, once I'm generally comfortable with levels and basic EQ. It makes everything sound punchy, it tames the bass in a very pleasing non-pumping fashion, and just adds mojo. It's really fun to set up, too, because your ear piques when you've achieved the right balance of threshold, attack and release. It's like going to an optometrist and nailing down the perfect eyeglass prescription with that big silly lens flipper tool.
Smooth and Punchy
Very nice across the stereo bus. I mix down with an analogue board and this unit adds to the analogue sound. Very fat, reduces mixing mistakes you might make. Makes mixes dynamic sounding while keeping the levels even. Easy to use and the autofade unit is killer- I love it. Unit also has side chain inputs in case you want to key the compressor.
One of my favorites!
I was so happy to hear that SSL's G series buss compressor had been adapted to peice of outboard gear. This is a familiar sounding compressor thats extremely smooth. And it's becoming the only buss compressor I use. With an SSL lunchbox and this compressor, you'd swear the material went through an SSL large format console. I just love this thing.
