Overview

The Waves SSL 4000 Collection was developed under license from Solid State Logic. Includes 3 meticulously modeled plug-ins based on the legendary SSL 4000 Series: the SSL E-Channel, the SSL G-Master Buss Compressor, and the SSL G-Equalizer. This set of Native format plug-ins sounds so close to the original consoles, even experts who work with SSL boards day in and day out can't tell the difference.

SSL G-Master Buss Compressor

Based on the renowned master buss center compressor of the SL 4000 G console, the Waves SSL G-Master Buss Compressor captures the unique sound of the original's IC input and twin VCA gain-reduction amplifier design.

SSL E-Channel

The SSL E-Channel delivers the incomparable sound of the Solid State Logic 4000-series console's all-discrete design and its Class A, VCA chip. It's a slice of the world's greatest hit-making machine, in your computer.

The equalization section of the SSL E-Channel is based on the renowned Black Knob equalizer, developed in 1983 with legendary producer George Martin. It features a High Pass Filter, Low Pass Filter, and a 4-band parametric equalizer.

The dynamics section features a soft-knee compressor/limiter and an expander/gate modeled on the SSL LS611E. Like the original, it can be placed before or after the equalization section, and makeup gain is automatically applied to maintain a steady output level.

SSL G-Equalizer

This 4-band equalizer, modeled on the SSL G Series EQ292, offers greater gain change than the E-Series EQ, and a slightly different curve. The SSL G-Equalizer includes a preboost dip and a precut rise, as well as a broader Q for more extreme equalization. That's why many leading engineers use the E Channel's equalization for detailed problem-solving and mixing, and the SSL G-Equalizer to shape and give character to the sound.

Note: Waves products require iLok USB key authorization. Authorizing your bundle to your iLok is a one-time process that can be completed on any computer with an internet connection. It doesn't have to be your audio computer. The iLok authorization process consists of 2 phases: Selecting your products and iLok in your Waves account. Running the Authorizer to complete the process.

Big Console Sound on Your CPU

By Kado Avant-Garde

from Florida

OK this is an expensive Plug In, BUT you can't beat the sound it will give your music. Plain and simple this package is all you need to do your mixing and mastering, as soon as I added this to tracks I had everyone asked how'd i'd get the same VST they had used to sound so rich, this plug in will bring your tracks alive. The only cons I have against this package is that its pricey, BUT like I said you can't beat the life it will bring to your most miniscule VST or track.
