Bring your mixes to life with one of the most beloved consoles of all time

The 4000 E is the console that first earned Solid State Logic's place in pro audio history, and helped change the sound of recorded music forever. Easily one of the best selling, best sounding and most respected professional consoles of all time, the 4000 E is a favorite of world class engineers and mixers like Chris Lord Alge, Tony Maserati, Rich Chycki, and Manny Marroquin to this day.

That Legendary SSL sound character

The E-Series is world renowned for being one of the best consoles ever made for producing and mixing rock and pop music, thanks to its tight, smooth and assertive tone, its pleasant saturation when pushed hard, and one of the most musical-sounding EQs ever developed by SSL. This widely-acclaimed sound helped make the 4000 E the mixing board behind countless top 40 hits of the 80s, 90s, 2000s and beyond.

The most faithful recreation of this studio classic available

The bx_console SSL 4000 E precisely recreates the signal path, workflow and sound of the original Solid State Logic channel strip at the component level, powered by Brainworx' patented TMT technology. No other emulation comes as close to capturing the unmistakable sound and feel of working on a real analog SSL.

A complete console channel strip in the box

The plugin version of the 4000 E includes all the features and stages that made the original consoles so easy and satisfying to work with. From the tight, clear and assertive preamp, to its flexible filter and dynamics sections, and its game-changing EQ that remains one of the most talked about in the history of analog consoles. This bx_console rendition remakes every element of the original channel strip with startling accuracy.

Enhanced with special features only possible in the digital domain

Like all bx_console plugins, the 4000 E delivers the unique character of a real analog console with its Tolerance Modeling Technology, giving each iteration of the channel strip its own subtle character, increasing depth and realism, just like on the original board. Independent V-Gain and THD controls allow you to dial in additional saturation and vibe without upsetting your mix balances or gain staging. You can even switch between the classic "black knob" and "brown knob" versions of the EQ, with the click of a mouse.


  • 72 different (.) TMT Channel emulations in one plugin, just like a real console.
  • TMT — Brainworx patent-registered "Tolerance Modeling Technology" (US Patent No. 10,725,727).
  • Switchable EQ modes between the "brown knob" version, for a gentler and more musical filter slope, and the "black knob" version for a more surgical filter.
  • A complete dynamics section switchable between E and G modes.
  • Perfect emulation of every aspect of the original 4000 E channel strip, including preamp, filters, compression, expander/gate and 4-band parametric EQ.
  • Continuously variable THD and Virtual Gain controls to add colorful saturation and/or simulated analog noise independently or globally.
  • Scalable UI to adapt to your screensize and workflow.
  • Loaded with plenty of useful presets to give you a starting place for finding your sound.
  • The only true CONSOLE emulation—everything else is just a channel strip.

Looking for that SSL E punch for use on drums? I first got the Waves SSL E Channel and really liked what it did to drums, but I felt there was something hard about the sound and the GUI is a bit small for my failing eyes. So, I went on a search for a channel strip I could use on drums. I had just bought the bx_console N and was very impressed with the EQ. It was smooth and musical. I literally downloaded every demo of every channel strip I could get my hands on. In the end, bx_console E was the clear winner for me. It has a sonic character not too unlike the Waves SSL E except the bx_console E has a bit more warmth (whatever that means). Its not at all a favorite on voice or acoustic instruments but on drums, it's hard to beat. A good SSL has to have punch and this is great at that without getting hard sounding. Way too expensive, but worth every penny if you need that sound.
