Solid State Logic expands SSL 500 Series with two new modules

British manufacturer Solid State Logic (SSL) has expanded its popular SSL 500 Series with two new modules, as well as giving the rest of the range a refresh. 

The new UltraViolet Stereo EQ module 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. The module adds two dedicated mid-bands, with ‘Focus’ mode for precision EQ control.

Also new to the lineup is the SiX Channel module which is a single-width channel strip that brings the SuperAnalogue processing features from SSL’s compact SiX console to a smaller unit. The SiX Channel is a simple way to add additional mic/line inputs to the line level inputs of any pro audio device, including the Stereo channels of the SiX console.

“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,” said Niall Feldman, SSL Director of New Products. “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.”

Along with the new modules, the 500 Series’ G-Comp Bus Compressor, E-EQ and E-Dynamics processing modules have all been given a revamp in the form of a sleek new brushed steel finish. 

The two new modules are available now with the UltraViolet Stereo EQ (UV-EQ) 500 Series module priced at £833 +VAT/$1299 +Tax/€1039 +Tax and the SiX Channel (SiX CH) 500 Series module costing £279+VAT/$399 +Tax/€349 +Tax.
