i WOULD LOVE NOW TO HEAR THE RESULTS AGAINST THE SSL HARDWARE UNIT: The XL Logic Series and the the SSL GX384
No GX 384 but...

Here are 3 files:
- Waves SSL plugin
- PA Vertigo VSC-2 plugin(no SC filter), not really SSL clone, but...
- X-Logic SSL rack looped with a Forssell MADA.

Plugin files were done with the analog loop source, thus we are only comparing compressors with the same D/A/D loopback sound.

Pumping at 20db of gain reduction on a small LogicX electro loop:
- attack 10 ms
- release 0.6 s
- threshold -15dB (for XLogic rack & waves plugin, but vertigo was set at -33dB, as 0db is -18dBFS)
- ratio 4:1
- make up 15dB on Waves and XLogic, adjusted on Vertigo to be on par with the others, then volume RMS matched for final 3 files.

Settings may not be perfect for the vertigo plugin, I tried to match them by making some assumptions for level calibration.
