Mix with the Classic Analog Sound that Powered Thousands of Hits


The SSL 4000 is the unquestioned superstar of consoles. Its punchy, deep, rich, in-your-face sonic signature has shaped modern music as we know it, from David Bowie to Dr. Dre, Bruce Springsteen to Foo Fighters to Kendrick Lamar.

With channel strips from the acclaimed E- and G-series, classic mic preamps, both “black” and “brown” knob EQ options, and the famed SSL bus compressor, your DAW doesn’t just sound like an SSL—it becomes an SSL.

Watch It in Action

Bring SSL’s Sublime Sonics to Your DAW

  • Choose Your Favorite E-Series

    Waves’ original E-Series plugin set the standard for superb sound and low CPU consumption. Now, the new EV2 plugin includes both “black” and “brown” knob EQ, along with mic preamp models for sweet saturation and overdrive.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • The Modern, Punchy G-Series

    SSL’s follow-up to the E-Series gained its own devotees. Its redesigned, adaptive-Q equalizer could deliver delicate tone-shaping, or a more forward sound—while the shelving EQ stage offered enhanced definition.

  • The Original “Glue” Compressor

    The G-series Master Bus Compressor, known for its uncanny ability to “glue” mixes together, is probably the most imitated compressor ever—but this one has SSL’s seal of approval. You’ll hear the difference.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • The Rare 292 Model EQ

    The G-EQ models the rack-mounted version of SSL’s G 292 “pink knob” EQ, one of SSL’s last channel strip EQ designs. When engineers prioritize character and shape over detail, the fabled 292 is often their EQ of choice.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • Pro-Level Presets

    Get inspired by over 600 presets from Grammy-winning engineers: Chris Lord-Alge (Foo Fighters), Jacquire King (King of Leon), Tony Maserati (David Bowie), Joe Barresi (Tool), Jack Joseph Puig (Lady Gaga), Lu Diaz (Jay Z), Dave Pensado (Justin Timberlake), Stuart White (Beyoncé), and many more.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
  • Added Functionality

    While 100% faithful to the sound, some plugins add modern touches like EQ Solo, output control enhancements, switching between SSL’s authentic analog noise floor sound or a pristine digital version, and more.

    Features: Precision Modeled Transformers
