    Push less on the softer side and more on the harder side

    by C. Huseyin . 5 out of 5 stars

    Considering the source for the plugin is a digital one, it really does deliver a different kind of feel to the sound that I currently haven't got.

    Considering the Hardware version has 'Analog' as the source to work with (or real actual electricity), this plug-in really feels like it's utilizing the extra DSP power it has available to it (this extra DSP power gives it an un-fair edge over other emulations).

    It's not to say other emulations are less, but I would find it hard to go back to another plug-in as far as desiring the SSL texture in a digital medium.

    Other emulations can feel to aggressive or 'too responsive', but this unit can be pushed less on the softer side and more on the harder side.

    one of my fav UAD plug-ins !!!

    by T. Gee . 5 out of 5 stars

    I didn't expect to be blown away by this one - and hadn't heard people praising it like Ampex tape plug-in for instance. i already have the waves SSL, so i did not expect this one to be a favorite. But i was pleasantly surprised, and very impressed by how much better this one sounds to Waves SSL. Compressing with UAD SSL E Channel strip gives me a sonically much more solid sound, than with waves SSL comp and as a direct result helps me giving my mixes much more impact. AWESOME plug-in !!!

    SSL E Series C Strip

    by T. Carr . 5 out of 5 stars

    I mix into SSL X desks and, so all that was missing from my sound was the channel EQ and dynamics, to say I am impressed with this plugin is an under statement.
    As usual, amazing likeness and wonderful differences.

    Excellent as always

    by C. Testolini . 5 out of 5 stars

    I also own the Neve channel strip. I have to say I absolutely love the SSL E series and would recommend it to anyone looking for an analog sound.

    Both the Neve and the SSL channel strips are great but I found myself favouring the SSL E.

    Enjoy have fun mixing.

    My Goto Channel Strip

    by M. Buchbinder . 5 out of 5 stars

    I'm a mix engineer I own a private project studio. Work primarily with Pop, Rock, Blues, Hip Hop, World Music and Techno. I mixed a record in a SSL room for the first time little while ago and wanted wanted to recreate that same feel. When I got this plugin I had high expectations. Let me tell you I was not disappointed, this plugin did precisely that. It is my goto channel strip.

    Punchy and tight

    by G. Gassert . 5 out of 5 stars

    I love what this channel strip does on all my drum and bass tracks. No need for Console emulation summers. This is doing it. Gates and channel comps on these really cleans up a live drum recording.

    Sounds correct

    by J. Brennan . 5 out of 5 stars

    Again, as in my SSL compressor review, this stands up to those who know how the SSL channels sound.

    Even FLAT, you can hear a character change in the brown and black EQs.

    As true, a little tweak goes a long way. Don't bother with the others. Waves, not even close with the same settings.

    Loving this channel strip!

    by L. Adler . 5 out of 5 stars

    I've been recording and mixing on an SSL console at Fantasy Studios for years. So to get this amazing plugin that works and sounds the same is such a gift. My mixes are sounding great thanks to UA.

    SSL E series

    by J. Toy . 5 out of 5 stars

    After an initial panic caused by thinking I had bought the wrong plugin (see 4k channel strip) I settled the heart down and realised I had bought the correct plugin. I had already used the trial version so knew what to expect. I use this especially for the high pass and low pass filter, sounds great and helps balance my mixes, especially on aux busses.

    Great st

    by I. Johansson . 5 out of 5 stars

    Yupp, it makes the sound jump out of the speakers in controlled way. Makes it sound bigger and wide in a great way. Compared to the 4K strip it hold the sound together in a more pro way, that I searched for in other SSL strip plugins, but not heard until now. Expander is great and I like the BLK/BRN selector. Boosting the low and putting the Bus comp after creates a solid foundation that puts a smile on my face. :-)

    Amazing

    by C. Dennard . 5 out of 5 stars

    I use this plugin at least once on every session, and there's many sessions I've done where I've had it on every track. Smooth EQ's with 2 different modes, EXCELLENT gates, and easy to use (after you've read the manual). When I'm tracking with Apollo, this is ALWAYS on, and I print it straight to my DAW. Well done, UA. By far my favorite plug-in.

    Create The UAA

    by D. DeLost . 5 out of 5 stars

    Universal Audio needs to sponsor a new program. Call it The UAA (Universal Audio Anonymous.) To put it quite simply, I have an addiction to your plug-ins! So far I have purchased The Studer 800, The NEVE 88RS, The SSL E Channel strip, The 1176 collection, and The NEVE 31102, and I love them all! I have a list of future purchases base on priority that Im aiming to get, and now I find myself looking for ways to cut back on living expenses and searching for things around my house to sell just so I can scrape up a few extra dollars to get my next UA fix! Seriously... I NEED HELP!!!

    Keep up the good work UA. Im looking forward to a long and beautiful relationship with you guys!


    Your truly.
    Dominic A. DeLost

    Une vraie tuerie

    by S. Pierre Tourette . 5 out of 5 stars

    Très bon Plug in.
    Fidèle à la tranche réelle.
    Une équalisation radicale, ultime pour faire ressortir une voix.
    Une compression plutôt incisive.
    Prendre un peu de temps pour comprendre les différents ordres de sélection. Des preset très efficaces.
    Je ne regrette pas mon achat.

    I agonized over several different chanel strip plug ins but this one floated immediately to the top, even over the Neve strip (and I still love the NEVEs).

    The UA version of the SSL E Series seems to be as close as you can get to the real analog version. The EQ is subtle and transparent, exactly as it should be, JUST like the original hardware! THANK YOU for bringing this on one board!
