Overview

Developed under license from Solid State Logic, the Waves SSL 4000 Collection includes three 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 Pro Tools-enabled plug-ins sound 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 four-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 four-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 pre-boost dip and a pre-cut 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 two phases: Selecting your products and iLok in your Waves account. Running the Authorizer to complete the process.
