Great plugin for in the box work.

Adds a great vibe to my in the box work. Very musical.

You won't regret this one

Already had the API Console but gave the SSL a try and ended up buying it...and sometimes it nice to have a choice of consoles. I tried some other SSL emulations just in case but this one was the best.

J. Lardinois


The whole plugin is great, but it shines with the gate.

I've mixed on these desks. I've mixed on this plugin. I want to skip reviewing everything else and just say, the expander / gate section is just lovely. It's really, REALLY easy to set up properly, and sounds great. It's flexible, too.

Absolutely spot on

Love the clarity and warmth this unison plug does for drums

Definitively best SSL console emulation

Best emulation for the SSL compared to Waves, there is something special on UAD version

A. Bonilla


Quality Sound

Slapped it on my vocal/keys and immediately felt the difference. It has a certain sound that I very much like, compared to other SSL emulations.

G. Merino


Versatile classic

I’ve mixed a lot on the real one and know it very well. I own all emulations of this console and this is my favorite. It’s very versatile plugin combo!

Hard to not love

One of the icons of the industry for all the reasons. It is that because of the look it puts on faces only seconds after play is hit...that experience, it cant be put into any review.

Émulation incroyable

J'ai essayé plusieurs versions de plugins Ssl 4000 E, pour moi la version Uad est la plus proche du son originel, j'aime sur les Drums bus sur les voix, grosse dynamique, incontournable

El SSL comp en el mix bus, para baterías y hasta el bus de salida en algunos casos es una gran herramienta para darle transientes y glue al track
