Universal Audio in Scotts Valley, Calif., announces the release of the SSL E Series Channel Strip ($299) and G Series Bus Compressor ($249) plug-ins for the UAD-2 platform, both of which are authenticated by Solid State Logic.
SSL E Series Channel Strip plug-in for UAD-2
The company says that the SSL E Series Channel Strip plug-in for UAD-2 is the result of its circuit emulation of the SSL 4000 console, complete with both the Type E “black knob” and “brown knob” 4-band EQ. Other features include high- and low-cut filters, and independent Expander/Gate and Compressor/Limiter.
The SSL G Series Bus Compressor is said to emulate the center section console dynamics from the SSL 4000, and feature the same control set and compression characteristics of the hardware version, including its ability to “glue” together a mix.
The SSL E Series Channel Strip and SSL G Series Bus Compressor plug-ins are available as part of the new UAD Software Version 5.8 release. In addition, V. 5.8 includes the Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder plug-in, as well as 64-bit Mac OS support and additional performance enhancements for all UAD-2 users on the Windows platform.
