Waves Audio has released the SSL EV2 Channel plug-in, created from the ground up using new Precision Analog Component technology.

Waves Audio SSL EV2 Channel plug-inAuthorised by Solid State Logic, the Waves SSL EV2 Channel plug-in is a new recreation of the SSL 4000E console channel strip, with new features including the original SSL ‘O2’ Brown EQ and the console’s richly saturated mic preamp and line inputs.

The SSL EV2 Channel has been modelled component-by-component from a meticulously maintained reference console, carefully selected by SSL.

Alongside the classic dynamics and EQ controls, the SSL EV2 Channel plug-in introduces versatile features allowing switching between two iconic SSL EQ flavours – the Black Knob (242), delivering the SSL’s famous clean punch and the original Brown Knob (O2), the first EQ developed for SSL E-Series consoles, which delivers a crunchy, gritty sound rich with character.

The newly modelled Line and Mic preamp input section gives rich harmonic distortion options, from gentle saturation to an aggressive drive. THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) can be engaged using the Analog switch – a key element in recreating the saturated analogue console sound –can be turned off for a clean input.

The Dynamics section includes a soft-knee compressor/limiter and a gate/expander that can be placed before or after the EQ. As in the original hardware, makeup gain is applied automatically.

The Waves SSL EV2 Channel comes loaded with more than 600 presets, including hundreds of presets from producers and mix engineers Jacquire King, Stuart White, Joe Barresi, Lu Diaz, Dave Pensado, Rich Costey and Jack Joseph Puig.

  • New modelling of the classic SSL 4000E channel strip.

  • Switch between Brown (O2) and Black (242) EQ knobs.
