Manufacturer's Description from Waves

When it comes to audio hardware modeling, Waves sets the standard to which others aspire. Our plugins don’t just mimic components and circuit schematics; they recreate every last nuance of actual hardware behavior.
Now, Waves has captured the most respected recording consoles in the world. The consoles that made music history. The big budget studio sound.
Upgrades from SSL 4000 Collection, V-Series,
The API Collection, and Mercury are available.


SSL 4000 Collection 

Founded in 1969 in the UK, Solid State Logic currently has over 3,000 SSL systems in active use around the world. SSL’s reputation for hit-making sound is unsurpassed, having been used on number one records by artists such as Sting, Whitney Houston, Blur, Phil Collins, and hundreds of others.
Of all these consoles, the Solid State Logic SL4000 is perhaps the most famous, having literally defined the music of the ‘80s and beyond. The SL4000 was the first widely adopted board with Total Recall automation. In 1981, the SSL4000 even received the Queen's Award for Export Achievement.


In the 1970s, engineers knew that there was nothing quite like the sound of the 1066, 1073, 1081, and 2254, heard on so many monster hits of that celebrated era. Modules like the 1073 and the 1081 were studio mainstays, and were considered indispensible tools for top 40 singles and those epic albums of the classic rock heyday.
Each especially suited for a particular recording, mixing, or mastering task, these four units represented the state of the art in their time, and engineers have sought to recreate that sound ever since.

The API Collection

From its beginnings in 1968, the API sound quickly became the favorite of recording and broadcast engineers. There are currently over 700 API consoles around the world, including the three major U.S. television networks. Over thirty years later, many of these consoles are still in daily use in some of the most prestigious recording and broadcast facilities in the world.
The API 550A, 550B, and 560 equalizers are the go-to units for many classic contemporary hits from artists as wide-ranging as Heart, Avril LaVigne, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
