SSL Fusion analogue processor

Posted on: Wednesday 7th of November 2018

“A master processor designed for today’s hybrid studio” – Fusion offers five analogue processors chosen for their sonic colouration abilities. The new rack unit is intended to bring that final polish to your in-the-box mix.

The first of the five new analogue processors is Vintage Drive. Described as a non-linear harmonic enhancement circuit, it’s aimed at “subtle thickening saturation through to more extreme distortion”. Next is the SSL Violet EQ section — “the first new SSL analogue EQ circuit for more than 25 years” – more a sweetening equaliser than tone-carver, it offers high and low shelving bands at four fixed frequencies. The High Frequency Compressor offers tape-like compression, an analogue Mid-Side circuit providing widening and spatial manipulation. Last in the chain is the SSL Transformer — another new circuit based on a custom-wound trafo which SSL say will thicken your low end and add sparkle to HF. Fusion also sports +/-12dB Input and Output Trim controls, an Input overload LED, large peak-hold metering and a front-end 18dB/Oct high-pass Filter with three selectable cut-off frequencies.

The Fusion is available now with a street price around £1790.
