For over 25 years, Ken "DURO" Ifill has been mixing the living history of Hip Hop culture through Rap and R&B. His client list includes Jay-Z, Nas, Pharrell Williams, Erykah Badu, Will Smith, Beastie Boys, Usher, and on and on, and through a singular focus on making everything he works on as cool as possible, he has won six Grammy Awards. These days, Duro splits his time between the studio, where he still engages his first and enduring passion (mixing!), and as Senior VP of A&R at Republic Records.
After mixing in the box exclusively for 15 years, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the 9000 J plugin. The SL 9000 J was my console of choice for many years and a major part of my mix sound. It was the perfect balance between a SSL G series console and a Neve VR console. This plugin does just the same, it gives you the SSL punch combined with the Neve warmth. Enjoy the new Brainworx bx_console SSL 9000 J, my new personal go to.
