Stereo bus compressor based on the classic SSL G series of consoles from the 1980s, using SSL SuperAnalogue circuitry.
The SSL XLogic X-Rack Stereo Bus Compressor Module is a double-width X-Rack version of their legendary G Series Stereo Buss compressor.
Solid State Logic made the X-Rack Stereo Bus Compressor a direct replica of the centre-console section from their renowned G Series consoles from the 1980s – but capable of being installed in the innovative SSL X-Rack modular range.
For punch, power and performance, the original G Series Bus Compressor had it all. Now the X-Rack Stereo Bus Compressor from SSL puts that legendary capability into your processing rack. With SuperAnalogue circuitry to give you the ultra-quiet operation and precise definition available throughout their excellent Duality and AWS consoles, the XLogic X-Rack Bus Compressor puts your mixes right where they need to be heard – at the front of the monitors.
The hallmarks of the SSL X-Rack design philosophy are all here in the Bus Compressor Module, with a simple layout and easy-to-understand operation. Setting your Attack, Release and Ratio in steps, with variable Threshold and Makeup gain, provides all the variables you need to revolutionise your mixes. Surround mixing is made easy with an LED-marked Link control to another Stereo Bus Compressor Module, and a further LED indicates if access to the stereo side-chain has been chosen.
Dynamic control can completely alter how your music is perceived and the X-Rack Stereo Bus Compressor allows you cut your mixes louder, punchier and with more presence than you’ve heard before. There are so many superlatives written about the G Series Stereo Bus Compressor and its capabilities that you might not remember where you heard it first – after all, this is the sound that launched a thousand hits.
