    Installing XP or seven carefree.
    Use with cubase recognized immediately.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    PC! Asus P5D / I5 3.5 GHz / 8GB Ram / SSD / top performance
    SSL is very resource intensive.
    No crash

    Purchased 2008
    I tested almost all Waves pack, it works but too expensive for my little studio: (
    Obviously they will tell you that it does not sound like hardware SSL hardware!
    Well, I say .... but obviously they are super plug, especially the channel strip, I glue all over my mix, I love the color and fineness of his corrections.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use these plugins since BMD was released ...
    I finally bought the bundle APRS've tried intensively for a week.
    I've never worked on an SSL console, but for me these plugins are a working tool rel ... what I like:
    --- SOUND! hyper effective treatments, I find that the EQ sounds annalogique trs (elsewhere in analog mode ON, it gnre of breath according to qualisation, trs low but I think mine nothing was added to the formulation ism and adds life to the sound), the high pass filters and low pass trs are effective. The gate on the channel strip is fabulous for me, I opened the plugin on a bass drum track and loads the preset "Kick Drum" and I just hallucinated the sound.
    --- Interface (GUI), for me normment account, it seems that the hardware takes over, heals and trs trs clear. There is no display of the curve qualisation
    countered for EQ plugins qualisation bcp and that's good, because of a m'vite to be influenced by what I see than by what I hear!
    --- Little to consumption in terms of resources. and a latency of only one sample

    what I like least: the price that I would levpour enlve a canvas), by the way I would not have to purchase the bundle if I had not found MOITI prices on the net.

    conclusion. I possde UAD1 the plugins which are fabulous, the bundle has qd t even for me a "must have" at least for mixing rock. I think we will not either by the Neve plugins we prpare Universal Audio ;-) but that will not donns not my opinion.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Who have tried the following plug-ins, I would spend my humble opinion amateur ...

    The master slices are long enough, however I do not think have been around a few hours of testing:

    Each slice includes filters, phases, qualisers paramtrique with adjustable Q, compressor, gate, expander, in short, everything you need to sculpt the sound with a knife, but I, so used my table Amek / TAC, I was totally lost in all these parameters, and the sound did not seem better or worse, gambling APRS have all these parameters.
    My ear is probably not sufficient causes (though I understand the qualisation, compression and everything on my own stuff ... and my speakers).

    I do not know what to think of the slices, must still know how to use ...
    R-I would like to try ...
    ----

    By the compressor against "bus" Stereo, then the buttock aa t:

    Trs trs good plug, I do not yet know the "real / Hardware" (I come from a kick-in attack in DIY), but the slap was great!

    Indeed, a battery bus or rhythm (with low range in, why not ???!!!), is actually the sound is slamming but also by bringing a more "massive".
    There is a knob that adds the "grain" and you really think is Fraine and leave room for other instruments so we want to see this jusqu'o can go ...

    Highly recommended and for me especially for the compressor.

    the site is:
    http://www.thesycon.de/deu/latency_check.shtml

    You testerezla latency of your system, the source of problem too Souvant sounds or charge card plugs!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used for about 6 months
    And I can say that it's heavy: the house I have a PSP, URS, Voxengo, Nomad Factory, Waves API, and mix well all my ds's first SSL, with Sonnox (which are surgical and great too)
    EQ: To here during my first reminded me of the sound (1988) when they go on ssl 4000 mix! You say it kif kif, maybe not, not in any case it is super super close! She is always musical and knows when to be precise, when the low pass and high it is very soft (a gentle slope so) that does not bother me, you want to cut at 50 Hz, the fools you at 80 Hz (but It was the same on the console!) is my brief eq perefere!
    Strip: you got the short called EQ: 10/10, you're compressor I use a lot more like limit in effect, and a gate section that use expander is beautiful! sorry for the opinion of my friend precednt but it's really useful!, when Souvant t'equalize, then you compress the sound with a lot of "leftover" styles of reverb, echo delay Souvant ect is a mess with the gate section (pander mode) is angel!

    (We will say to me and my property down your end, Yeah but take a ReFX Nexus and many times even with reverb and delay to zero, the origin of sounds is shielded reverb) Anyway the slice is very good too !

    Be useful also for not taken nikel chrome ...

    Comp Bus: then I take me there! Ze SSL is really touch! Take a mix, goes inside and the magic, can be known to use a comp! Of course you can do to pump, or almost no interest on any mix (depending on the type of zik we do in fact!) But starting from such preset mastering you there is quite mild here the fact is, in fact Leave everything as default and already you "see" the SSL sound!
    Do not hesitate to use it even on the tracks if necessary!

    It is on on my master bus, followed by URS neve eq eq mix here and slap!

    The question I ask myself is Liquid Waves Sll vs mix? I made compararison AB right now and I'll keep you posted! In fact this is my comparison factor, if emultations SSL réeussies then we can assume that the rest did and therefore it's worth it, just for diversity (since I have so far not cpu resource problem) if not for lovers go to the SSL Duende SSL is pure but be careful not 4000!

    So to summarize, if you have the budget and a fairly good config do not hesitate one second as the most important sound is to go, the more contrairemment external dsp, we have no limit to numbers ds the absolute (except the cpu) but especially if you mix a project with an external DSP and drags it well for you need your card, if it is down or anything, you're in the m. ... contraitrement with plugs that are "privileges" to transport and always return!

    Sorry for the mistakes but it is 5:12 in the morning and after the session I ds koma!

    Sounds good to all!

    Waves installs are easy. Not issues with compatibility in Cubase 64 bit. That's always nice. I'm not sure if this has a manual because I've never really read it. I just sort of learned it as I went which in retrospect was probably not the best idea because this thing can be tricky at first. Honestly though I think the learning curve doesn't matter too much due to the great presets included. You can do a lot with this out of the box just with the presets alone. Even cut a full mix if you are patient. I found the channel strip to have a medium difficulty to use. It's not super complicated but it is tricky at first. Not a gripe. Just honesty.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    I use it with Cubase and it works fine. Does take up a fair amount of resources but I can imagine with all the emulation going on this is to be expected. If you end up using this as often as I do then you might want to think about getting a fast rig. Mine is top of the line and I still have trouble with keeping a few of them running sometimes. In some mixes I will have 6 or 7 at once and have to start freezing.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This has become my most used all in one comp and EQ plugin. It does both wondefully. Adds a serious punch to everything works miracles for a song that is in danger of crowding. The comp can be a bit much on some slower songs when dynamics need to be left low but I must say the EQ sounds great on everything no matter what. There's some kind of magic sauce going on here...and I don't know why but I love what it is. There have been days where I have tried 10 or 20 other plugins on a track just to go back to the SSL. It's that good. If you are just getting started in the VST game then I would suggest you buy this pack first. You can do a lot with it and not have to make another purchase for some time. I highly recommend it for the price. I just wish I would've found it sooner. This is one of those vsts that makes you want to load up ALL your old projects and put the SSL on them to see what wonders it can do to a remix.

  • Great single channel eq and compression

    Waves SSL 4000 CollectionPublié le 08/04/11 à 08:05
    Install is quick and easy. I wouldn't expect any less from Waves. It comes with some VERY usable presets including the ones from CLA if you want fast results. But I expect most users will read the manual and want to learn the ins and outs. Everything is laid out as if you had the console in front of you. Accurate controls and everything. The accuracy to the original here is very impressive and clearly Waves did a good job making a solid recreation here.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    I've used a lot of channel strip eq/comp plugins. Some cheap ones and some really expensive ones. If there's one thing I know it's that there's always something better. But I've been using the SSL for a couple of years now and for full band mixes, I'm convinced this is the best. For an EQ/comp strip this is the one I keep coming back to. It just has that magic tone that no other plug seems to give me. What's even odder is that the presets are actually usable. I can load up a whole project with drums/guitar/bass/vocals/keys and use the presets on all 10 or 15 tracks or so...and it works well. Sounds good. In that respect it's pretty incredible. I've never encountered a vst that can do that. The cpu use is great too. After you load up more than 6 or 7 you might have to freeze them individually depending on cpu use.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The SSL is on almost everything I do with a full band. On acoustic or relaxed mixes it can be a bit much but when you have a big mix, it goes a long way toward organizing the chaos. Both the eq and compression is gives to every channel is awesome and better than about anything I've used. The only thing that comes close for compression is T-racks plugs for me. The price isn't dirt cheap, but considering how much use I get it's a tremendous value.
