Developed under license from Solid State Logic, The SSL 4000 Collection includes four meticulously modeled plug-ins based on the legendary SSL 4000 Series: the SSL E-Channel, the SSL G-Master Buss Compressor, the SSL G-Equalizer and the SSL G-Channel.

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 G-Equalizer to shape and give character to the sound.

SSL G-Master Buss Compressor
Based on the renowned master buss center compressor of the SSL 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. Prized by top engineers for its ability to "glue together" tracks, the SL 4000 G master buss center compressor is ideal for taming piano dynamics or adding punch to drums and percussion.

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-Channel
The SSL G-Channel consolidates the equalization and dynamic controls of SSL G Series consoles into one convenient tool. The G-Channel EQ module delivers the original hardware's characteristic pre-boost dip, pre-cut rise, and broad Q for extreme frequency manipulation. The Dynamics section features soft-knee compression and limiting, a gate/expander, and automatic makeup gain for rock steady output levels. Together, they deliver the one-of-a-kind sound and convenient routing flexibility that have made the SSL G-Series console a control room classic.

I'm really looking forward to getting these some day. SO far I have an excellent compressor and eq and desser on my IMPACT TWIN. Seems just like a white SSL. It's incredible.

With these SSL I want a pure smooth gritty clean transparent sound creating the deep 'mix' sound. ABle to EQ the darkness in. It's very enjoyable and relazing to hear those mixes. The colors just come to life out of the darkness. I enjoy colors and coloration with a black background to show transparency. I suspect i'll be using the g-channel the most. I hear they pair together though. Also I can't wait for Waves to come forth with the white versions. Are they the Panda X version. hmm i'm going to SSL's website to check it out! Later GAtor, ANthony here! ANthony's gone.
