SSL 9000K console Channel Strip Processing

The SSL Channel Strip 2 plug-in delivers the legendary tone, features and workflow inspired by channel strips such as the SSL 9000 K, featuring SSL's proprietary EQ 'Anti-Cramping' technology and external side chain input. The latest Channel Strip 2 update (v2) welcomes the addition of a new Output Section with dedicated Fader Level, Width and Pan controls, plus advanced DAW Solo and Cut integration for Ableton Live, Studio One and REAPER (VST3 only).

The EQ section is a classic 4-band design with parametric LMF & HMF and shelving LF & HF sections (LF & HF switch to Bell). The whole EQ can be switched between E & G Series characteristics and can be applied to the dynamics side chain. 

The Dynamics section offers separate Compressor and Gate/Expander. The Compressor can be switched between soft and hard knee. Both the Compressor and Gate/Expander sections feature fast/slow attack switches and independent side chains. The plug-in also features High and Low Pass Filters which can also be applied to the side chain. Perfect for smoothing, controlling and adding presence to any source material. 

The new Output section introduces a dedicated Fader Level in addition to the Output Trim, as well as stereo position controls in the form of a Pan and mid-side Width control – all of which are controllable from the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer and integrated hardware.
