Solid State Logic Expands 500 Series Module Range With New Modular Processors

Solid State Logic (SSL) has introduced two new modular processors — the stereo ULTRAVIOLET Stereo Equaliser (UV-EQ) and SiX Channel (SiX CH) modules — as part of revitalizing its 500 Series module range.

In addition, the VHD+ module has an enhanced feature set while the classic G-Comp Bus Compressor, E-EQ and E-Dynamics processing modules have been given a brushed steel facelift.

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 analog processor Fusion and puts it into the 500 series format. It adds two dedicated mid-bands, with precision Focus mode for added EQ control.

SiX Channel is a single-width 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. It offers 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’s also a way to create a professional modular mixer from a “summing” 500 Series rack unit.

Meanwhile, the VHD+ Pre now offers front and rear inputs with four different impedance selections to make it a more versatile mic pre and DI box for a range of microphones and instruments. Delivering an SSL SuperAnalogue-grade recording path, the switchable patented Variable Harmonic Drive (VHD) system uses a 100 percent analog signal path to generate richer harmonic distortion.

UltraViolet Stereo EQ (UV-EQ) 500 Series module is available for £ 833 +VAT, $1299 +Tax, €1039 +Tax; SiX Channel (SiX CH) 500 Series module is available for £279 +VAT, $399 +Tax, €349 +Tax. All SSL 500 modules are shipping and available worldwide. Go here for more specifics.
