Brainworx bx_console G | SSL 4000 emulation

I’d been after a channel strip emulator of the renowned SSL 4000 console that has legendary status since its introduction in 1987.

I’ve already started using this plugin on new tracks.  All I can say is that I love what it can do to a sound.  I added to a vocal channel (or bus) in one case and it just brought out some great sparkle and impact.  Just that little extra 5% that makes a big difference.

Description

I’d been after a channel strip emulator of the renowned SSL 4000 console that has legendary status since its introduction in 1987.  I eventually settled on the Brainworx offering, mainly because I wasn’t getting on with the Waves plugins and also having to use their own Waves Central installer that controls all the plugins.  It crashed at times (Windows 7). Slate Digital I would have gone to, but for the fact you need (at the time of writing) a physical USB iLok dongle to use it.

I’ve already started using this plugin on new tracks.  All I can say is that I love what it can do to a sound.  I added to a vocal channel (or bus) in one case and it just brought out some great sparkle and impact.  Just that little extra 5% that makes a big difference.

The bx_console G has a Compressor/Limiter, full-featured Expander/Gate, 4-band Parametric EQ, and High Pass / Low Pass filters—with incredibly flexible signal routing between processors just like in the G Series analog console.  It has a 72-channel emulation of the original SSL 4000 console and also includes some new, modern features such as the adjusting the compressor’s Dry / Wet control.

You can download a demo first, as I did, before buying.
