Waves SSL 4000 Collection
So to all that is installed, incompatibilities, resources and all that li hardware, I have no ide, I visited a studio that had the amateur pluggins following their BIG PC . I have no ide concerns they may have encountered during installation.

I put 7 pnaliser not to the overall opinion ...


Again, no ide, I did note one thing: the sound ...


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.

Install iLok!!

ss ca be no

PC g of care to install but not on mac, I was not able to install it on my poor PC

3 plugs


Not greedy, but good with my G5 2.5 + 4 GB of RAM .... I vote not sure what happened to me pe!

c if the wave ... c stable!


2 Months
beautiful interface
Very intuitive
The CHANNEL: Precis we do everything the ear, no curves, c but not so bad, we really feel like using an analogue channel strip (I will not say I've never a SSL between u hands)
For my part, the eq is Precise, low enough but not very close round, the game Gate + Comp is a treat, according to one side, the eq can trigger the comp and turn it into esser,
The sound is very dynamic, we manage to carve even if several switches are not regalge c ca is top!! So many good setting kon do not know lekel choose c rare with a plug,
ca does not cut very finely the frequency ... as a console! on drums, awesome c, g not managed to get the same with my UAD plug

comp the bus is on acoustic pianos or other on the bus but I like recess DSUs also

The I eq seres a little less color but the treatment is more radical than the channel

all c plugs is very very good quality they are going well with the vintage just uad

I am very happy

Installation: carefree ultimately sufficiently heavy (iLok authorization on key)
incompatibility: no particular problem set by the fact that with a double notch use, the interface is not displayed properly qd plugin is open on the secondary screen. (For all three bundle of plugins)


Computer requirements: P4 2.8GHz C, 2 UAD1, RME Fireface, cubase SX3.1
nickel operation set by configuration problem with double notch above cit.
no problem of stablilit. The plugins use fewer resources and have a latency of only one sample.


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.
