wow★★★★★I have been playing for several years using emulations of analog consoles from other brands...this one really offers a lot of punch, warmth, dynamics and control and, which for me is decisive for the evaluation of an effect, it offers ready-to-use presets all very incisive . if I had to find a fault ... the interface is not very tidy, but once you get used to it it becomes one of the reference points of any mix.
Best Sounding Channel strip★★★★★I have never used SSL hardware and cant say how its actually sounds. But when I hear audio through bx_SSL 9000 J I just love the sound. TMT is such a simple concept but has a huge difference from other analog model plugins.
Just... wow.★★★★★Immediately it became clear why the special voice of this console is so acclaimed. Beats went to the next level immediately! Thank you PA for another winner.
Beautiful★★★★★I`m kicking myself because I purchased the SSL 9000 J plug-in around 6 months ago and used it yesterday for the 1st time... all I can say is, I'm blown away by its sound. I had a lead vocal that was unruly... I tried EQ, compression, and saturation and was thinking I was going to have to re-record it. In my last minute attempt to salvage the track, I scrolled through my plug-ins just to experiment and then I saw the 9000J... completely forgot I purchased it. Within a minute I had the tone I was trying to get. Turned out the track was fine. It hardly needed anything except that change of tone that the 9000J provided. I'm looking forward to using this on bass, guitars, and drums now.
Favorite Channel Strip★★★★★I have all the PA channel strips, after having used them all and knowing their characteristics, I often lean more to the sound of the SSL9000J it makes me really enjoy while I'm mixing, besides that I can mix very fast with this channel strip, I get the sound I want very fast, for me is very comfortable and has become undoubtedly my favorite, although of course I will continue using the PA channel strips, they are all amazing in their own way, incredible work Brainworx and PA!!Plugin Alliance responseThank you so much for sharing your experience and enjoy your sessions!
Great sounding strip★★★★★Another great sounding desk strip from PA. Different enough from AMEK 9099 and Lindell 50 to be worth joining them in my toolbox.Plugin Alliance responseThank you and enjoy your sessions!
Ssl 9000j★★★★★I have been using the E&G. Just recently bought the 9000j and it's the best decision I have made in awhile. My mixes have been missing something that I couldn't put my finger to until I tried the demo. I had to buy it asap
ssl 9000J★★★★★Can't wait to try this one!
Really, really happy with this plugin★★★★★In all honesty, I am a 4000E fan and I have been using a plugin emulation for the last 5 years on literally everything.
I was satisfied and wasn't expecting the 9000J to be much different but oh boy was I wrong...
Don't get me wrong, the 4000E is and always will be great.
The thing is just that I can get the very specific sound I am after with the 9000J on it's own which is such a time saver. It's all about the EQ curves, which makes it easy. 4 click-and-drags and I'm there within seconds.
The compressor is really great as well.
In the past I had to run a bunch of EQs on the track inserts as well as parallel processing just to get me THERE.
I didn't understand all the hype around this desk but I do now.
Thanks Brainworx. Rock on!
Another Plateau★★★★★Exported all tracks on a 50+ track mix using SSL 9000j and the change was obvious to me. Even the Mrs, (without solicitation) said that the mix sounded clearer and bigger.
Like covering the face of a bill, (stereo field) with tracks the size of dimes instead of quarters.
Thank you Brainworx/Plugin Alliance
