Lives for gear

Of all the SSL channelstrip I tried, I always thought the SSL dynamic section was the closest (with UAD). And always wished they'd update it to nowadays standard.
It seems they did.

Although, I don't understand why nobody (except bloody UAD again) emulated the internal clipping of the channelstrip. When pushing the mic preamp you got that "overload" lead that lights up. It also happens when pushing way too much EQ boost. In my opinion, working on that desk everyday, the sound of the SSL 4000E/G is a greatly affected by this overload thingy. And the led is a nice visual representation of the "sweet spot" to clip the signal.

Shame they haven't done it here :/ (it seems).
