Waves G-Channel SSL 4000 eq & dynamics
The famous SSL G-ChannelPublished on 06/15/11 at 20:52
Waves plugins are some of the best out there, bar none. For one, they're cross platform. For a Mac user, that means the world. I'm always trying to support companies that support Mac, and Waves has been pretty good about that since the whole Intel switch. I've used these in Logic without any problems. Although they're 32 bit plugins, Logic will add a bridge to allow you to use them in a 64 bit environment as to not limit you to the amount of ram you can utilize. On top of that, these things are rock solid. I've never had a crash with Waves plugins at all.
Just like in my E-channel review, I use this and the E-channel a lot. Both of these have something unique to offer, and it's not uncommon to find me using both of these on a mixdown. It all depends on the overall tone you're going for, and sometimes I mix it up just for fun. I can never truly choose between the two, so I recommend you try both out. They're both wonderful plugins that sound very musical and are extremely versatile. Just be sure not to pirate these as Waves works hard for their money.
The studio has the Waves Ltd. G-Channel and the entire SSL 4000 series of plug-ins running on a Pro Tools HD system. We have a pretty powerful computer, although I can't remember the exact specs on it off the top of my head and in an HD system you're not using the computer's processing power anyway. I can't say how well this would run on an LE system or something comparable, but it is a bulky plug-in and I would imagine that it would take up a at least a decent amount of power...
The Waves Ltd. G-Channel is overall one of the best channel strip plug-ins that I've used. It sounds incredibly realistic and offers up a ton of control over your sound. I can't say how well it would match up to a real console since I haven't had a chance to shoot it out, it sounds like the real deal to me. I love how much control you have here, as it's got pretty much everything you'd need as far as equalization and dynamic processing goes. As I said earlier, I'm not sure on the availability of this plug-in outside of the bundle, but if you are looking for a bundle that will undoubtedly knock your socks off, definitely check out the 4000 series plugs, where the G-Channel is probably the best one.
