• Solid State Logic expands 500 Series range



    Solid State Logic (SSL) has announced the introduction of two new modular processors as part of revitalising their 500 Series module range. The classic G-Comp Bus Compressor, E-EQ and E-Dynamics processing modules have been given a brushed steel facelift, while a feature enhanced VHD+ module, brand new stereo ULTRAVIOLET Stereo Equaliser (UV-EQ) and SiX Channel (SiX CH) modules, complete the new-look range.

    Niall Feldman, SSL Director of New Products, comments “For nearly 20 years we have made many of our classic console and processor-based innovations available to more producers, engineers and musicians via the 500 module series. The opportunity with our more recent product to continue this work and bring a new range of modern classic 500 modules to a broader market, was too good to resist.”

    ULTRAVIOLET takes the minimum phase-shift Violet stereo EQ section from the new Fusion analogue processor, and puts it into the 500 series format. Over and above Fusion’s Violet EQ, ULTRAVIOLET takes features one step further, adding two dedicated mid-bands, with precision Focus mode for ultimate EQ control. "ULTRAVIOLET draws on the SSL legacy of selecting key frequencies and response curves to create a musical and intuitive EQ, designed to quickly dial in the sound of your mix, sub groups and individual instruments" says, the company

    SiX Channel is a single-width 500 Series channel strip using the SuperAnalogue™ processing features from SSL’s compact SiX console, including Mic-pre, low and high frequency EQ, as well as the single knob compressor. SiX Channel is a simple way to add additional Mic/Line inputs to the line level inputs of any audio device, including the Stereo channels of the SiX console. It is also a flexible way to create a modular mixer from a ‘summing’ 500 Series rack unit.

    The VHD+ Pre now features front and rear inputs with four different impedance selections making it a versatile mic pre and DI box for a wide range of microphones and instruments. With reportedly SSL's SuperAnalogue™ grade recording path, the switchable patented Variable Harmonic Drive (VHD) system uses a 100% analogue signal path to generate "rich" harmonic distortion.

    UltraViolet Stereo EQ (UV-EQ) 500 Series module is available priced: £ 833 +VAT, $1299 +Tax, €1039 +Tax

    SiX Channel (SiX CH) 500 Series module is available priced: £279 +VAT, $399 +Tax, €349 +Tax

    All SSL 500 modules are shipping and available worldwide.
