These two console plugins are modeled from two completely different analog desks so their inherent sound is quite different, along with the features that they offer. While both are channel strips that are meant to be used to make the incoming audio sound better, the quality of their processing is quite different. Please google Neve desks (bx_console) and SSL desks (bx_console E) to read more about how the two differ from each other. It could be said that the bx_console provides more of a warm and saturated sound while the SSL plugin has a bit more of an aggressive and punchy sound. This of course is a matter of opinion and each plugin is equally capable of delivering warmth, punch and aggressive character to your tracks.
