Channel Strip 2
Reviewed By digitalboytn
May 1st, 2022

I've been involved with playing and producing music for a very long time and I grew up in the analog world before a gradual progression to working ITB...

There's always a little hardware involved to get the signals into the DAW, but for many reasons, I much prefer the flexibility of the digital domain...

The two most important tools for me are EQs and compressors and I'm a fan of good channel strips...

Over the years, I've tried a lot of different effects plugins and there are some great choices out there...

So when I tried the new version of the SSL Channel Strip, I was expecting it to be good....

But not THIS good...

I dropped it into a few channels of an existing project and immediately felt an openness in the top end and a clarity in the bottom...

A few touches here and there and things were sitting in the mix like never before and it was quite a revelation...

Using this channel strip has been really inspiring and extremely productive...

I read up on the SSL 9000 consoles and everything I heard is what people like Michael Brauer have been saying for years...

The sound is more transparent and less compressed in the mids than the 4K and 6K consoles and the EQ is more like a Focusrite ISA-110 to me...but even better...

So what is the verdict here ?

Well...if I could only take two effect plugins to a desert island, this channel strip would be one of them...

A comprehensive EQ, compressor, expander and gate in a zero latency plugin with a sound that is so damn good that it feels like your ears have been unblocked...

It is 100% useful in every way and I have never been as inspired by any plugin as much as this one...

5 Stars and a million kudos to the guys at SSL...

My only gripe with this is it can't externally side-chain. I have however emailed them and suggested the external side-chain feature for the development team.

A welcome return of the legendary Listen Mic Compressor.

I was a huge fan of SSL's previous LMC-1 compressor—a wonderful freebie that they mysteriously killed after only a couple of years on the market. Up until now, the LMC could only be found as a minor component on their Duende software. But now, it's available to all.

SSL really upped the features on this version; the user has complete control over the signal, and it's good to see developers not be so beholden to the limitations of the original (much like Overloud's excellent Gem Mod emulation).

This is one of my favourite compressors, and is getting a heavy workout on drums, guitars, and parallel processing on vocals. Get it now.

Fantastic reverb. Great sounding, super flexible. The sidechain compressor is a really nice addition for ducking the reverb under the input signal with no extra routing within your DAW.

My go to G-Series bus comp. The new features in version 2 really bring up to speed with the competition.
