Welcome Solid State Logic (SSL) to the Plugin Alliance!

The legendary sound of the Solid State Logic 4000 series consoles brought to you by Brainworx. With the power of TMT this officially licensed SSL plugin allows you to build a 72 channel analog console in your DAW. Harness the power of the most famous British console ever produced.  

These console emulations were created using the original schematics and in close collaboration with the SSL team. Brainworx have also added powerful plugin-only features such as THD, a compressor mix parameter and V-Gain for authentic control of the analog signal path.

The new 4000 E/G Series plugins have been taken to the next level by SSL & BX engineers together:

  • Revisited Component Modeling with assistance of SSL engineers
  • Created using the original Solid State Logic 4000 E/G schematics
  • Completely overhauled EQ, Dynamics and Filter sections
  • New Brainworx features added: THD ALL & V-GAIN ALL
If you own bx_console SSL 4000 E you can buy bx_console SSL 4000 G or bx_console N for just $99 each! Just make sure you are logged in and you will see the $99 price for these products.
