  • SSL 4000 E

    ★☆☆☆☆
    by CJ
    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...!

    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.
  • My favorite Channel Strip Plugin!

    ★★★★★
    by Christos
    I absolutely love this plugin! I own SEVERAL ssl channel strip plugins and this one is by far the best all around one! I love having x3 and /3 on the HPF and LPF, makes them extra useful compared to my other ssl E channel strips. The EQ sounds amazing and having both the E and G dynamic section is awesome! I find myself using a lot fewer plugins than before because I have been getting way closer to the sound in my head with this 1 plugin than i was with any of my other channel strips. My only gripe, and its small, is that I wish you could double click on a parameter and type in the value you want. Only because that is the way I am use to working. Sound wise though, they nailed it!!!

    WOW! I'm in love with this plugin. It's insanely versatile and colorful. You can slap it on every track and change channels to give it a true analog console feel. Can't say enough about this one

    Not much to say except my ears tell me that this version feels a little more high end sonically. It does react slightly different & the eq is smoother if that’s a thing. I think I might have preferred analog vu meters
