Welcome Solid State Logic to the Plugin Alliance!

Brainworx & SSL are proud to release the officially approved bx_console SSL 4000 E plugin.

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

  • 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

The public beta for these plugins has started.
Please just download and activate the new E and G versions and enjoy!



The bx_console SSL 4000 E & G plugins have an MSRP of $349 (each), but will be sold at discounted intro pricing of $249 (each) from July 19 on.

If you bought the previous bx_console E at full list price ($299) in the last 3 months, you will get a FREE bx_console SSL 4000 E plugin from us. Please contact Support in this case!
