SSL add SiX- and Fusion-inspired options to 500 series

Posted on: Tuesday 13th of April 2021

 

SSL Ultraviolet EQSolid State Logic, SSL to its friends, has introduced two new modular processors as part of a revamp of its 500 Series module range.

The brand new stereo Ultraviolet Stereo Equaliser (UV-EQ) and SiX Channel (SiX CH) modules both launch alongside cosmetically updated G-Comp Bus Compressor, E-EQ and E-Dynamics processing modules – which have been given a brushed steel finish – and share the new look. Ultraviolet moves the Violet stereo EQ section from the SSL Fusion 2U rack processor to the 500 format, adding two dedicated mid-bands, with precision Focus mode.

The SiX channel performs a similar trick by transposing the ‘SuperAnalogue’ processing features from SSL’s compact SiX console. This single channel strip includes Mic-pre, low and high frequency EQ, as well as the single knob compressor from that system, providing a simple way to add additional Mic/Line inputs to the line level inputs of any professional audio device, including the Stereo channels of the SiX console. It is also offers a flexible way to create a modular mixer from a ‘summing’ 500 Series rack unit.

Additionally, The VHD+ Pre now features front and rear inputs with four different impedance selections to accommodate a wide range of microphones and instruments. Delivering an SSL SuperAnalogue grade recording path, the switchable Variable Harmonic Drive (VHD) system uses a 100% analogue signal path to generate harmonic distortion.
