The SSL Stereo Bus Compressor Module answers the clamor from customers for the audio legend that is the center section compressor from SSL G-Series Consoles to be made available for the X-Rack system. The module, which is the first double width module occupying two X-Rack slots, is a simple unit with a simple purpose; it makes complete mixes sound bigger, with more power, punch and drive. It brings cohesion and strength to the mix without compromising clarity.
The Stereo Bus Compressor Module delivers the classic tonal characteristic of the G-Series Compressor but with the added benefit of the ultra high bandwidth, ultra low noise SuperAnalogue circuit design. The classic Threshold, Attack, Ratio, Release and Make Up controls make the module extremely simple to operate. True Stereo Side Chain Input is accompanied by a ‘link’ feature that enables multiple Stereo Bus Compressor Modules to be combined for surround processing.
When loaded with Stereo Bus Compressor, 4 Input, 8 Input & Master Modules, X-Rack can now be configured as an exceptionally high quality analogue summing mixer with instant ‘audio glue’ appeal that can breathe life and power into cold ‘inside the box’ DAW mixes.
Key features of the X-Rack Stereo Bus Compressor Module include:
Classic sonic character and mix finalizing capabilities of SSL Stereo Bus compression.
True Stereo side-chain Input for external signal keying.
Link control enables several modules to be combined for surround compression.
Gain reduction meter as fitted to the classic SSL console range.
Electronically balanced XLR connections.
