  • bx_console SSL 4000 E

    ★★★★☆

    I bought the plugin because of the 72 channel resolution. It sounds very open and transparent but still has the slightly rough sound SSL E.Super practically the random channel function. The performance is outstanding. The CPU is hardly loaded at 72 instances.
    Highly recommended, for me better than the SSL channel of Waves.

    Ok,
    we all have a so-called SSL plugin but this one is a real game-changer !
    I put one instance on every track of my session (around 50 !) : the CPU meter remains friendly !
    And the sound ... sounds natural, real, in-life, ... This mix was the easiest one I've ever done !
    And for the first time, I put only one plugin on every track because this guy does the job !! Period !

    I A/B's this against the Waves NLS version of an SSL console. This emulation was a clear winner in that showdown. It has way more mojo in the upper mids. I also really like the compressor on this too, it's so musical. And the ability to do parallel compression is an important feature for me.

    This new SSL emulation is killer -- it has quickly become my go-to channel strip. Great sound, unique analog seasoning across the channels, and great EQ and dynamics.

  • SSL 4000 E

    ★☆☆☆☆

    The dynamics and eq all sound amazing, I love it!
    But the gate is terrible!! It’s ruins my work flow for what I normally like out of an SSL channel strip.
    The studio I work at has this very exact console. When you have the threshold all the way up on a gate, you shouldn’t hear anything! You dial it back so you can set your gate. It’s really difficult to set the gate in this plugin as it acts NOTHING like an SSL. It’s sound great, but terrible for workflow. I use the UAD SSL over this for that very reason.

    Hey CJ, you are the first customer to review this plugin with 1 star (in fact, the first with less than 3 stars!), and for a reason I cannot verify. Sorry to hear you don't like the plugin as much as you should, but thousands of happy customers work just fine with the gate, and SSL have tested and approved it. Hope you'll get used to it eventually, so you get the most out of your purchase. Dirk.

    I have tried all SSL strips plugins and this one takes the cake. The SHEEN and PUNCH is just incredible. Having worked on real 4k SSL's I'm happy to say this is the closest I have ever been ITB from a real console. My favorite SSL Strip HANDS DOWN.... A WINNER... Thanks Dirk...!
  • Best SSL eq in a plugin.

    by Phil Liar
    This is my new "go to" channel strip when I mix in the box. I've an SSL XL Desk and purchased lots of other plugins modeled on the 4000 EQ, and no one, till now, had give me the same attitude. Great eq and great dynamics.

    If I were to pick one of the most important plugins when I mix songs, It would be this killing bx SSL4000E. No doubt! This makes music clearly and excellent enough.
