Waves Audio has announced the release of SSL G-Channel, a brand new addition to its SSL 4000 Collection. G-Channel is the fourth meticulously modeled plug-in developed under license from Solid State Logic, the revered manufacturer of professional analog and digital consoles. Now, with this latest addition, Waves say that the power of the complete SSL 4000 console series is available at users fingertips.
A Waves spokesperson had this to say, “Waves’ new G-Channel consolidates the equalization and dynamic controls of SSL G Series consoles into one convenient tool. The G-Channel EQ module delivers the characteristic pre-boost dip, pre-cut rise, and broad Q for extreme frequency manipulation, while the Dynamics section features soft-knee compression and limiting, a gate/expander and automatic makeup gain for rock steady output levels. Together, they deliver the one-of-a-kind sound and convenient routing flexibility that have made the SSL G-Series console a control room classic.”
The Waves SSL 4000 Collection consists of the SSL E-Channel, the SSL G-Master Buss Compressor and the SSL G-Equalizer, as well as the new SSL G-Channel. Waves tell u s that extensive testing reveals that the Waves SSL 4000 plug-ins sound virtually identical to their hardware counterparts and that experts who work with SSL boards every day cannot hear any difference.
