SSL recording consoles have been used to mix more Platinum-selling records than any other desk. The SSL E Series Channel Strip plug-in for UAD-2 is the result of Universal Audio’s painstaking circuit emulation of the esteemed SSL 4000 console, complete with both the Type E “black knob” and “brown knob” four-band EQ — widely held to be the favorites in SSL’s signal processing lineage.

With SSL’s direct involvement, UA has captured the essence of this iconic device with exacting accuracy — right down to the Auto Fade control.
