SSL Releases Free Plug-In Version Of Classic Compressor

LMC-1 brings the classic 1980s SL 4000 Series? Listen Mic Compressor to users of Mac-based DAWs (October 18, 2005)

Solid State Logic, the worlds leading manufacturer of professional analogue and digital consoles, announced the LMC-1 Plug-In at the recent AES Convention in New York. Capturing the signature sound of the legendary ?Listen Mic Compressor from SSLs classic 1980s SL 4000 Series consoles, the LMC-1 delivers a distinctive compression sound perfect for a range of processing applications.

Originally intended to prevent overloading on a tracking room ?talkback mic, the Listen Mic Compressor accidentally became an essential factor in defining the drum sound of the 1980s, when producers famously began patching it into their signal chain to process ambient drum mics, creating radically dynamic drum sounds and rhythm tracks.

?The LMC-1 delivers one of our unique compression sounds to users of Digital Audio Workstations for the first time, says Niall Feldman, director of product marketing for SSL. ?The plug-in is just part of our ongoing vision to create powerful, creative tools for the workstation market, allowing a new generation of users to experience SSL sound and technology.

Meticulously recreated from analysis of the original units, the LMC-1 Plug-In features the same great sound and simplicity as its forebear, with fixed attack and release levels and controls for Compression level as well as Input and Output trim and a Bypass switch.

LMC-1 is available for Mac only, in AU and VST plug-in formats, making it compatible with a wide range of popular software sequencers. Users of ProTools systems will be able to use the plug-in via a third-party VST to RTAS plug-in ?wrapper.

The plug-in is available as a direct download from and is free of charge following a simple registration procedure.
