MESSE13: SSL Releases Stereo Bus Compressor In A 500 Format Rack Module

SSL has announced the release of the SSL Stereo Bus Compressor for 500 format modular racks at Musikmesse 2013.

A spokesperson told us, "Often imitated but never equalled, the centre section compressor from the 1980's G-Series analogue console is an audio production legend. It 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 your mix without compromising clarity. To this day it remains a key element of the SSL sound and has featured on countless classic recordings. The availability of the Stereo Bus Compressor in a module for the 500 format makes this essential audio production tool available to users of the popular API 500 format modular rack platform."

The SSL console sound has been available in 12 different modules for SSL's own modular X-Rack system for many years. The system enjoys a large and enthusiastic customer base (more than 15,000 modules sold) that reap the benefits of the very high-quality power supply and on board TotalRecall™ offered by SSL's X-Rack. The release of the Stereo Bus Compressor Module for the 500 Series modular rack platform makes another small slice of the SSL sound available to a wider user base.
