In the latest edition to our How To Listen series, award-winning engineer Fab Dupont explains one of the most famous compressors of all time, the SSL Bus Compressor.

Known for it's predestined use on the 2 bus of SSL consoles, it was quickly revered by many engineers as the secret glue for mixes. Fast forward 30 years, and there is a myriad of emulations in both the hardware and software domains, and it continues to find it's way on to countless productions.

In this tutorial, Fab explains:

  • The controls of the SSL Buss Compressor.
  • What an I/O Loop Insert is so that you can hear the tonal impact of going through converters when using hardware inserts.
  • How to calibrate levels when using external hardware for a fair level matched comparison.
  • The effect of Pan Law.
  • Multiple styles of compression on the 2 Bus, Drum Bus, and Synth Bass, giving you a wide range of options with one compressor.
  • How to listen to the differences between the hardware and different software emulations.
