Waves SSL 4000 Collection : LoeFie's user review
« Waves SSL, "Carve out your sound" »
I use the Waves SSL native bundle. The install was very simple. If your planing to buy this then there is no need for the manual as you should already know what you need to use it for. However, should you need to read the manual it is very clear an concise on the functions of this great VST.
Let me make something clear about EQ's. Every EQ's has its own foot print or tonality that it leaves on audio. Solid Stage Logic is known for its warmth and compressors. The compression seems to have the ability to blend your music together unlike any other compressor out there.
I have worked with a real SSL and i want to say that these VST's are spot on with the quality and sound they produced in relation to the hardware.
the VST's are stable, i have never had a problem with them.
The waves SSL, in my opinion works well with HIP -HOP, Rock and Jazz. Sure you can applie it to any type of music you want. But Solid State Logic EQ'a have a specific feel and sound to them. They color the music and you can hear that, in situations where you do not want to color the music this is not the EQ you want to use.
This Bundle is well worth the price, other wise you would pay thousands of dollars to use a real SSL board. I don't know how they did it, but the SSL VST can stand as a fill in if you don't have enough for the real thing.
This software uses a lot of DSP. So make sure your DAW meets processing requirements. If you can afford it, buy the SSL versions with outboard DSP such as the x-patch or x-logic.
