About the SSL LMC+

The distinctive LMC sound was discovered by accident – as many production techniques are – when the SL 4000B’s consoles communication link, the ‘Listen Mic Compressor’, was left engaged during a drum session recording.
The result: a thick, punchy compression effect that disappeared in an instant, and is to this day is widely regarded as the foundation for ‘that 80s drum sound’.

The SSL LMC+ plug-in brings a new and significantly enhanced version of the classic SSL Listen Mic Compressor – as originally found in the centre section of the legendary SL 4000B console – to your DAW, updated with a new set of creative tools for artists, producers and engineers.
