held to be the favorite in SSL’s console lineage. The companion UAD
4K Buss Compressor, with its simple control set and transparent
compression characteristics, faithfully models the 4000 G+ buss
compressor. The UAD 4K Channel Strip sells for $249, while the UAD 4K
Buss Compressor is available for $199. Each of the UAD 4K plug-ins
includes a 14-day fully functional demo and is now available for

and sonic details that made the 4000 such a fantastic desk to work
