It would be nice to have heard some more realistic attack, release and threshold settings! The kids like it crushed these days i guess

just totally insane sounding, especially on the "dance" mix example.

Sorry but you dont use the comp the good way … for exemple, at the final 'rock' sample, you say it sound great, but the setting you made is barrely just push the makeup gain … no need a 2000$ gear for that…

finally someone that does proper testing on more than a fucking 80s drumloop thanks

Clearly someone doesn't know how to use the SSL.

Suits perfectly for the Slate drums!

Using an SSL-G series compressor on a dance music kick makes no f*cking sense whatsoever

Luna Down · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

Love the SSL Buss Compressor!

Sonic Palace · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

The compressor sounds great, I want!

Абакар Ильясханов · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

Give me this device, please)))

any owners here use the new Stam Audio SA4000 or TK audio clones? Is this really worth the extra couple grand? Its actually a pretty simple schematic so I wonder if it's worth it to have the brand name on the faceplate…

jazz.shoddy · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

is this plugin best used for mastering or does it not matter

Halcyon _R · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

wow i really noticed the bypass a 3:01

slammah2012 · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

this is actually not the compressor of the G 4000 series….. it is the compressor of the J 9000 series

Mitchell Kinard · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

This makes no fucking sense, why not use a software compressor?

Oscar Rivas · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

The moment when you change a setting and the music simultaneously ends. 😳

George Diamond · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

i love your videos man , keep it up!

tanner122772 · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

What you manage to actually prove was ANY COMPRESSOR sounds horrible, be it software or hardware, at "EXTREME" settings

Massimo Forni · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry but in this case there's no chance for the plug-in.

Phoenix MatadorTV · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

Dr Mix can you steer by in the right direction please I have a 500 series was look to get a compressor like the 500 series SSL G bus can you tell me if I would be able to use just on a vocal or instrument when I'm not using on the bus??? Thank you

ZING DANGUS · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

How to totally ruin a perfectly good piece of music – compress the living shit out of it………..

Bobby Arey · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

Is there a sonic differences between SSL G bus compressors of Rack-X Rack-500 series versions ?

Worshipcaster · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

goddam! nice tone

mixc8 · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

Excellent video! since I use the actual hardware I like seeing how you use the settings.

Joeman7890 · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

When I saw this the number of views was 33,609. What do I win?

Norbert Leitner · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

thx man for your great compressor reviews!!! awesome 🙂

synthfreqs · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

2:15 onwards… tightness in low end… nice

Rafael Santiago · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

Hi, man Is that compressor the same like SSl Solid State Logic 500 Series?

Daniel White · June 21, 2018 at 6:21 pm

The Neve 33609 is sexy too. But the SSL also looks nice inbetween the Neve sandwitch. Is there or will be there a similar 'in action' vid of the 33609?
EDIT: found it 😉

May I ask what the guitar/amp recording chain was for the lead on dance mix? Thanks Scotty!
