Plugin Boutique has launched a limited time sale on Solid State Logic’s SSL LMC+, offering over 80% off on the plugin that delivers the sound of the Listen Mic Compressor of an SSL 4000E console.

Combined with the SSL 4000E’s built-in noise gate, it was the genesis to the gated-reverb drum sound that dominated the ’80s.

The LMC+ plug-in eclipses the original hardware, providing you with advanced functionality that wasn’t present in the original console, such as external sidechain capabilities, highpass filters and lowpass filters, and Scoop and Split functions. And thanks to its intuitive controls, the LMC+ is a breeze to use. If you want to smash everything back to the 1980s, the LMC+ is the plug-in to do it with.

SSL LMC+ features

  • Replicates the sound of an SSL 4000E console’s Listen Mic Compressor.
  • Fixed attack and release curves are tailor-made for ambient drums.
  • External sidechain triggers gain reduction with an external source or signal.
  • Variable highpass and lowpass filters tailor which frequencies trigger the compression.
  • Scoop button phase-inverts wet signal.
  • Split button activates bandpass-subtraction mode.
  • Mix control makes parallel processing a piece of cake.

The plugin is on sale for only $17.99 USD instead of $119 USD until February 29th, 2024. It comes in VST/VST3, AU and AAX formats for Windows and Mac.
