So I didn't know what to think about this prior to trying and then buying it. However, It instantly brought a warmth and polished sound to my mixes that I was jumping through hoops trying to get. I straight up can't live without it now and it's on all my mixes. If I could only have one plugin this would be it. Get that SSL Magic in your DAW
I was reluctant to purchase this as I have a few other highly regarded emulations of this channel. I demo'd it and was instantly drawn in by the detail of the sound and usability. Options such as switching between the E and G dynamics, and switching between brown and black eq eras give extra useful options. It is also wonderful to have the TMT technology to give 72 different channels. This is currently my go to channel strip and choice of E emulations.

I use to hang around a studio back in mid to late 80s,not being a mix engineer then i use to like watching and listening to the engineer do his thing on a ssl e,fast forward a few years i started purchasing ssl plugins and been using them on my mixes for the last 10 years or so but i could never get that sound i remembered until NOW! I purchased the bx_console e on sale,tried, love it,did a null test using the TMT, VERY INTERESTING GUYS. "These are great times we live in",THANK YOU PLUGIN ALLIANCE.
WOW! This SSL Console ROCKS!!Finally found my happy place!! I now have several plugs from Brainworx, Lindell, SPL, Millennia, and a few others. each has its place and purpose, and I thoroughly love each one! I couldn’t pass up on the unbelievable sale price of this, and am so glad I jumped on it!! I’m no pro by any stretch of the imagination, just a drummer who also likes to mix and record. This is a key piece of the puzzle for killer rock drums, bass and heavy guitars! A Huge Thank You to the incredible people at Brainworx and P.A.!!! You continue to amaze me!
Amazing work by Brainworx. This is a top notch plug-in, I'm truly impressed by how satisfying this is on everything and how many features they packed into it. The presets are great starting points and the plug-in makes full use of the routing an original SSL console would be capable of plus so much more. I have the Waves SSL Bundle and comparatively Brainworx takes little to no Cpu power and does it all plus more in a single AU, with actual results you're gonna be stoked to hear. This will be on my Go-To list from now on. The ONLY downside to this one is not being able to just click and type in a value, which I hope is addressed. But still well worth the 5 stars for a review. I'm too happy about this one! Thank you Bx!
Brings the magic sauce !!
Damn ! I deliberated all morning, about whether I "genuinely" needed the SSL 4000 E as I'd recently bought the BX townhouse, BX digital eq v3, Acme Opticom and BX XL, but I knew within 2 minutes of trying the demo that this was a thing i'll be using on every drum buss from now on. I only went through some presets, and have yet to set up anything more "custom", but the amount of low end and punch it added to drums I thought I had already kinda maxed the dynamics out on, was jaw-dropping. I've never used a desk before, and certainly not an SSL, but this thing brings the magic sauce, and I'm very happy I went with my gut instinct. Gonna spend a lot of time getting to know this one !!

I have got many plugins which simulate analog behavior - such as Waves NLS... So I´ve decided to buy a copy of SSL 400 E in discount. First I need to read the manual a little. BUT: 0 samples latency in Pro Tools!!! - I can you use it during recording process! Very Low CPU usage! And amazing EQ and Dynamics. I tried to mix dry drums - punchy and pretty solid! Good job! I regret I didn´t have that earlier :-)
SSL CONSOLE IN UR DAW !

This is the bomb, it adds weight to your mix.
Best SSL console emulation
The best SSL console emulation i have experimented so far. Very accurate and good sounding plugin. Use it on every channel now.
