FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Waves Now Shipping the New SSL EV2 Channel Plugin

Knoxville, TN, November 15, 2021Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and plugins, is now shipping the SSL EV2 Channel plugin – Waves’ all-new modeling of the classic SSL sound.

Authorized by Solid State Logic, the Waves SSL EV2 Channel plugin is a brand-new recreation of the legendary SSL 4000E console channel strip. With new features, including the original SSL “O2” Brown EQ and the console’s richly saturated mic pre and line inputs, SSL EV2 Channel delivers a new level of analog depth and detail – an elevated take on the timeless SSL sound.

Recreated from the ground up using Waves’ new Precision Analog Component® technology, the Waves SSL EV2 Channel has been modeled component-by-component from a meticulously maintained reference console, carefully selected by Solid State Logic.

Alongside the classic dynamics and EQ controls, the SSL EV2 Channel plugin introduces versatile new features. You can now switch between two iconic SSL EQ flavors: 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 modeled Line and Mic preamp input section gives you rich harmonic distortion options, from gentle saturation to an aggressive drive. You can engage THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) with the Analog switch – a key element in recreating the saturated analog console sound – or you can turn Analog off for a clean input.

The Dynamics section includes a soft-knee compressor/limiter and a gate/expander. You can place it before or after the EQ in your chain for more creativity and precision. As in the original hardware, makeup gain is applied automatically.

The Waves SSL EV2 Channel comes loaded with over 600 presets – including hundreds of presets by GRAMMY®-winning producers and mix engineers Jacquire King, Stuart White, Joe Barresi, Lu Diaz, Dave Pensado, Rich Costey, Jack Joseph Puig, and many more.
