Famous SSL Sound for Your DAW

Developed under license from Solid State Logic, the SSL 4000 Collection plug-in suite models the classic compression, EQ, and channel strip that made the SSL 4000 such a popular console. You get the G-Master Bus Compressor, G-Equalizer 4-band EQ, and the G-Channel and E-Channel plug-ins. Together you've got all the sonic sweetness you need to fine-tune tracks, glue together your mix, and add that undeniable SSL brilliance to your productions. Ask anyone who mixes at Sweetwater, and they'll confirm that the Waves SSL 4000 Collection is a set of top-notch sound tools.

Waves SSL 4000 Collection Plug-in Suite at a Glance:
  • Glue your mix together with the G-Master Bus Compressor
  • Two iconic channel strips modeled in detail
  • G-Equalizer is a workhorse EQ for any application
Glue your mix together with the G-Master Bus Compressor

When veteran engineers talk bus compression, you'll usually hear mention of the center compressor on the SSL 4000 G console. That's what the G-Master Bus Compressor plug-in is based on, and it captures the character of the console's IC input and twin VCA gain-reduction amplifier design. When you've got your tracks sounding right and they just need that extra bit of magic to tie them together, run them through this compressor plug-in.

Two iconic channel strips modeled in detail

This bundle includes the E-Channel plug-in, based on SSL's E-Series consoles. The EQ in these consoles was developed with the help of legendary producer George Martin, and is known for its highly musical character. Also included is the G-Channel, modeled after the EQ and dynamic controls on the SSL G-Series consoles. Its characteristic sound is due in part to its EQ response, which puts a slight dip in front of boosted frequencies or a slight rise in front of attenuated frequencies. You'll hear it once you use it, and you'll miss it when it's not there.

G-Equalizer is a workhorse EQ for any application

Because it's so useful, Waves also includes the G-Equalizer plug-in, which has the same character as the EQ in the G-Channel channel strip plug-in. Use it when you want the classic SSL sound but don't want to devote extra CPU resources to the extensive dynamics section of the channel strip plug-in.

Waves SSL 4000 Collection Plug-in Suite Features:
  • Four plug-in processors based on SSL G-Series and E-Series consoles
  • Punch up drums and tame dynamics with the G-Master Bus Compressor
  • E-Channel is based on the E-Series console EQ developed with the help of George Martin
  • G-Channel captures the distinctive character of the G-Series console's EQ and dynamics section
  • G-Equalizer gives you the vibrant results with any sound source
Mix with the sound of SSL, with the Waves SSL 4000 Collection!

The SSL 4000 collection works

I heard that the SSL plugins were great so I went ahead and bought them. It turns out that they are awesome! The presets get you close, making your mix better, and twerking them takes your mix to a whole new level. Suddenly I was thinking....this sounds like a hit CD.

I now have my dream SSL

Back in "87" I had the chance to record on a SSL console for the first time ! The recording sessions went well and I wanted an SSL console if I ever hit the lotto Thanks to Waves I got my wish Install was easy and presets were a nice start with dialing in for taste .

So good I paid for it ;)

You all know what this is and yes, it's as good as everyone says it is. Does it sound like the real deal? I've used many consoles and the one thing I can say is, not even two channels on the same console sound the same. Most studios with consoles know which channels sound best for drums, bass, vocals, and so on. All that being said, once you learn how to use these plugins you will grow to rely on them. They are so good I use them over most plugins I already have. The E Channel is perfect for drums. It's compressor is nice and the expander/gate allows you to dial in the right amount of separation allowing you to use a secondary compressor to slam a kick or snare. The buss compressor is gold, absolute gold and I've used it for many many projects for individual busses as well as the master buss. Basically, you need these plugins so buy them and get to work.
