Solid State Logic has introduced two new modular processors to its SSL 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, new stereo Ultraviolet Stereo Equaliser (UV-EQ) and SiX Channel (SiX CH) modules, complete the new-look range.

SSL Ultraviolet EQ and SiX Channel‘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,’ says SSL Director of New Products, Niall Feldman. ‘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 Fusion analogue processor and presents it in the 500-series format. Over and above Fusion’s Violet EQ, Ultraviolet adds two dedicated mid-bands, with precision Focus mode for precise 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 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 lic/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 VHD+ Pre now features front and rear inputs with four different impedance selections making it an extremely versatile mic preamp 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 fully analogue signal path to generate rich harmonic distortion.

The SSL Ultraviolet Stereo Equaliser is priced at £833 RRP plus VAT, with the SiX Channel at £279 RRP plus VAT. Both units will be available in May 2021.

Solid State Logic is distributed in the UK by Sound Technology.
