Multi-band Compressor with Classic SSL Sound
The SSL G3 MultiBusComp is a must-have tool for any audio professional looking to achieve the SSL sound in their mixes, delivering the classic SSL "glue" compression sound across 3 independently configurable frequency bands.
With powerful sidechaining features, intuitive feedback and per-band harmonic drive options, the G3 MultiBusComp is the perfect solution for achieving polished and professional mixes and masters that has made SSL the industry standard for decades.
G3 MultiBusComp's advanced parameter linking saves you time and effort, by allowing you to automatically apply inverse changes between selected parameters – hold down the shift key while changing the input/output gain or the threshold and makeup gains in each band. With automatically gain-compensated per-band drive inspired by SSL’s '4K’ drive circuit, you can add character and warmth to specific frequencies all while maintaining full dynamic control.
The band graph view allows you to set your threshold and frequency crossovers with ease, and the sidechaining and filtering options allow you to create custom sidechain filters that are unlinked from the band crossovers, accentuating or diminishing the response to certain frequencies using the per-band bell filter, or driving the dynamics from a different frequency band or external signal.
The G3 MultiBusComp's auditioning features offer mutually exclusive soloing on each band and each band's sidechain input, allowing you to hear each band in isolation and make informed decisions about your mix. And with a resizable GUI that can be adjusted from 50% to 200%, the G3 MultiBusComp provides a comfortable user experience that can be customized to your specific needs.

Whether you're mixing, mastering, or working in post-production, the G3 MultiBusComp is the ultimate tool for achieving a professional sound.
The G3 MultiBusComp allows you to link parameters and apply quickly and easily inverse changes between the input/output gain or the threshold and makeup gains in each frequency band. Simply hit the ‘link’ icon, or hold down the shift key.
With the G3 MultiBusComp's per-band drive feature inspired by our ‘4K’ drive circuit, you can add warmth and character to your mix all while retaining dynamic control of your signal.
Band graph view
The band graph view provides an intuitive way to set your threshold and frequency crossovers, giving you greater control over your mix and allowing you to achieve the sound you want with precision and accuracy.
Powerful sidechaining and filtering options
The G3 MultiBusComp lets you customize your sidechain filters to accentuate or diminish response to certain frequencies. Unlink the sidechain filters from the band crossover and external sidechaining to drive the dynamics from a different frequency band, or a completely different signal entirely.
You can use the mutually exclusive soloing on each band and each band's sidechain input to make informed decisions about your mix. This feature allows you to hear each band in isolation and fine-tune your settings to perfection.
