Two New SSL 500 Series Modules

ULTRAVIOLET Stereo Equaliser and SiX Channel      09/04/21

Solid State Logic (SSL) has introduced two new modular processors as part of revitalising their SSL 500 Series module range. The classic G-Comp Bus Compressor, E-EQ and E-Dynamics processing modules have been given a fresh, sleek 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, told us, "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."

Here's the details direct from SSL

ULTRAVIOLET takes the acclaimed minimum phase-shift Violet stereo EQ section from the new studio-favourite analogue processor Fusion, 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.

SiX Channel is a single-width 500 Series channel strip using the SuperAnalogue™ processing features from SSL's incredibly successful 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 professional audio device, including the Stereo channels of the SiX console. It is also a flexible way to create a professional modular mixer from a 'summing' 500 Series rack unit.

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