o.t. but speaking of the waves ssl bundle, is anyone using the g over the e for many purposes, and if so, may i ask for what? i haven't spent much time with it other than an attempt on a vocal track, but didn't find it to be happening at all. i only find myself using the e-channel

Works GREAT try it !!
Sweet spot? I don't know what this is supposed to be? The consoles were aiming at +4dB operation - and the overload margin before saturation was at least 20dB higher then that - and in this overdrive margin area the distortion was still very minimal, certainly less than you would hear directly! And even if you did eventually manage to saturate it by bending the needles at around 24dB above full scale(!), all it did was hard clip the signal at the power rails. No one was actually trying to saturate the console - that would have been absurd... I think some misunderstanding has occurred.

Yikes - he really did say that!

The last thing I wanted was to court controversy here - I can only tell you what's in the E and G series consoles themselves - and what people were doing with them..

The only way to saturate the internal signal path of the SSL channel strip (pre-fader processing) was to increase the input gain (or otherwise boost the signal) beyond +24dB above what was required for 0dB on the meters and reduce the fader to -24dB - whereupon the output would still actually be full operating level and reading 0dB on the meters.

When any part of the channel processing finally saturated - it simply clipped the signal..

this just depends on what you like. i've worked on the 4000 g+ and i love the eqs. there are some things i use the e on but for me, the g does it. always remember to use what works for you. if everybody worked exactly the same then all the music would sound exactly the same. boooring!!! hope you guys find what works for you.
