Solid State Logic have released the SL4000 B, a faithful recreation for the legendary console and is available exclusively with SSL Complete or UC1 for $24.99 per month.
The SL 4000 B was released in 1976 and was famously used in the ‘Stone Room’ at London’s Townhouse Studios. The console was responsible for countless iconic records, including Phil Collins’ ‘In the Air Tonight’, The Buggles’ ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ and Peter Gabriel’s ‘Intruder’.
Expertly modelled and with first-class integration with the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer ecosystem, the 4K B plug-in is an authentic emulation of the SL 4000 B channel strip – full of tone, punch and rich non-linear analogue character.
The SSL 4K B plug-in is the result of thousands of hours of work, research and development. Painstakingly modelled, the 4K B is a cornerstone of SSL console history and provides a brand-new analogue flavour for your productions.
We met with SSL design guru and ex-Townhouse Studio engineer Chris Jenkins to find out more about what it was like to install and use one of the first ever SL 4000 B consoles; a truly revolutionary and iconic mixing desk.
SSL 4K B integrates seamlessly into the 360° Plug-in Mixer ecosystem and is fully controllable from UC1 and UF8 hardware. The 4K B plug-in is included in the software bundle for all UC1 owners, alongside Channel Strip 2 and Bus Compressor 2.
