Product Description

Three incredibly accurate models of SSL 4000 console functions
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.

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 its IC input and twin VCA gain-reduction amplifier design. This compressor has long been prized by top engineers for its ability to "glue together" tracks, and is considered by many to be the ultimate finalizer that transforms a mix into a finished record. It's also ideal for taming piano dynamics or adding punch to drums and percussion.

With gain reduction meters that mirror the originals, the SSL G-Master Buss Compressor displays levels in dBu rather than in dBFS and includes SSL's coveted Autofade feature, with an adjustable fade rate from one to sixty seconds. You can even switch the Analog modeling feature on or off to suit your needs.

SSL G-Equalizer
This 4-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 slight dip before a boost as well as a slight rise before a cut, which contribute to its incomparable sound, and its broader Q allows 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.

SSL E-Channel
The SSL E-Channel delivers the characteristic sound of the original's all-discrete design and its Class A, VCA chip. The equalization section of the SSL E-Channel is based on the renowned Black Knob equalizer, developed in 1983 by SSL in association with legendary producer George Martin. The Black Knob equalizer featured enhanced cut and boost ranges and a steeper 18dB/octave high pass filter for tighter control of low frequencies, as well as a smoother curve. Features include a High-pass filter, low-pass filter, and a 4-band parametric equalizer. The Split feature lets you position the low-pass and/or high-pass filters before the dynamics processors and put the filters in a dynamics sidechain for simple de-essing.

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. The compressor's adjustable attack lets you choose between the default auto-sensing function which responds to your source material or a fixed 1 ms. attack time.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
