Solid State Logic has announced Fusion, an all-analogue 2U-high outboard processor hybrid studio applications. Fusion provides five analogue colouration tools designed to add tonal character, weight and space to a mix bus or stereo stems.

Solid State Logic FusionVintage Drive is a nonlinear harmonic enhancement circuit that ‘brings cohesion and strength’ to a mix. Drive and Density controls interact to produce harmonic saturation and soft compression derived from overloading an analogue circuit. It can be used lightly for subtle thickening saturation or driven hard for more extreme distortion.

The SSL Violet EQ is an all-new minimum phase-shift, two-band shelving EQ. The first new SSL analogue EQ circuit for more than 25 years draws on the SSL legacy of carefully selected frequencies and response curves to create a musical and intuitive EQ designed to quickly dial in low-end weight and high-end sheen. High and Low frequency circuits each offer four switched frequency points and ±9dB attenuation.

A new High Frequency Compressor delivers the distinctive sound of high frequency rounding in the analogue domain. A compressor that effects high frequencies only, optimised for smooth and transparent harshness reduction and a tape-like high-frequency roll off – great for taming brittle high frequency fizz.

A new Stereo Image enhancer provides a true analogue Mid-Side circuit that manipulates the Side signal, allowing for widening and spatial manipulation of the stereo field.

A switched, custom SSL Transformer circuit introduces subtle low-frequency saturation, alongside a high-frequency phase-shift. The result is a simultaneous thickening of the low-end and an added sparkle to the high-end.

‘The introduction of Fusion marks the arrival of new studio tools from the studio masters that will colour the records we hear in the future,’ says Audiotonix Group CEO, James Gordon. ‘Having been fortunate enough to see and hear the development of this new unit, I think it leaves a strong impression of what’s to come.’

Fusion will be available worldwide from Q3 2018. For pricing, please speak to your local reseller.
