Lowers cost of entry into X-Rack system with a 20% price reduction on the chassis 07/09/10
Solid State Logic has announced shipping of a new module for the X-Rack modular rack system: the Stereo EQ Module. At the same time the cost of entry into the ground-breaking modular system has been reduced, with the X-Rack 8-slot chassis itself, which includes the power supply and Total Recall® system, now 20% cheaper. Here's what SSL have to say...
The X-Rack Stereo EQ Module is a stereo version of SSL's console Channel EQ. It is a classic SSL four-band parametric EQ that is a superb all round frequency adjustment tool kit. Whether you need pinpoint accuracy for surgical problem solving, smoother broader sound shaping, or a little more aggressive character the SSL Stereo EQ will give you what you need. This is a fully featured EQ with high- and low-bands switchable between shelving or fixed Q bell curves and two mid-bands each with variable Q control. This stereo version introduces a 'Selective Mode' switch which enables independent switching of high & low bands and mid bands between SSL's E & G series console EQ characteristics to provide an even more versatile EQ design. Key features of the X-Rack Stereo EQ Module include:
Stereo version of the XL 9000 K Channel Equaliser as used on Duality & AWS consoles
'Selective Mode' E and G characteristic switching, which enables independent switching of high & low bands and mid bands between E or G curves
High and low-bands switchable between shelving and fixed Q Bell curves
EQ IN switch for A/B comparison
Rear panel connections on balanced TRS Jack
TotalRecall™ status LEDs
