Solid State Logic SSL 4K B

Back to where it all began





The SL 4000 B was released in 1976 and was famously used in the ‘Stone Room’ at London’s Townhouse Studios. The console was responsible for countless iconic records, including Phil Collins’ ‘In the Air Tonight’, The Buggles’ ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ and Peter Gabriel’s ‘Intruder’.

Expertly modelled and with first-class integration with the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer ecosystem, the 4K B plug-in is an authentic emulation of the SL 4000 B channel strip – full of tone, punch and rich non-linear analogue character.

Jensen JE-115K-E transformer mic preamp 

Add rich non-linear harmonics and drive to your tracks using the 4K B’s preamp section. The mic preamp stage is automatically gain-compensated, allowing you to easily dial in harmonics without destructively effecting your levels.

The original 4000-series EQ circuit

A precursor to the 02 ‘brown knob’ EQ, the original 4000-series EQ circuit from the SL 4000 B is every bit as musical and full of character – its constant bandwidth parametric mid-bands make it great for shaping drums and bass.

Channel dynamics based on the SSL Bus Compressor 

The 4K B plug-in features a channel dynamics module unlike the 4000 E and 9000-series channels. The compressor design has a circuit topology based on the legendary SSL Bus Compressor, including peak detection and a sidechain VCA in a feedback loop.

De-ess mode

The unique ‘ds’ mode repurposes the compressor for broadband compression triggered by sibilance, just like the original hardware.

Modelled dbx 202 ‘black can’ VCA fader

The dbx 202 ‘black can’ VCA fader introduces subtle saturation at the output – drive the fader to introduce harmonics and then dial back the output using the output trim control.

HQ mode for enhanced processing and oversampling

Use the High Quality (HQ) mode to turn on intelligent oversampling under-the-hood – applying the minimum amount of oversampling necessary for a closer approximation of a continuous analogue signal.

Total control from the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer 

Mix ‘n’ match the 4K B with Channel Strip 2 and control them all from the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer – your virtual SSL console – including first-class integration with the SSL UF8 and SSL UC1 controllers for hands-on control.
