SSL XR418 X-Rack Mono E-Series Dynamics
Mono E-Series Dynamics for X-Rack
Mono E-Series Dynamics Module for X-Rack
The E-Series Dynamics Module is one of two new modules for the X-Rack/Mynx SuperAnalogueTM modular mixing and processing system. The new E-Series Modules reproduce the legendary sonic signature of an early 80's classic, the SL 4000 E console channel strip, which was featured on countless 1980's recordings.
The E-Series Dynamics Module features a compressor/limiter and an expander/gate, both of which return faithfully to the circuitry and key components which define the sound of the original SL 611E Series channel strip. A true RMS converter is used in the side chain while the gain element is an all discrete design identical to the Class A VCA chip used in the original unit. The compressor contains additional switching options to defeat the over-easy curve and to use a linear release instead of the more usual logarithmic curve. The result is a compressor with three distinct voices, each with its own musical character.
- Immortal SSL 4000 Series circuitry
