SSL 500-Series 4kB Dynamics Module

SKU: 4kB

Defined by the earliest B Series Channel Strip
The B-Series Dynamics Module continues the expansion of the SSL 500 Series Modules and comprises of a compressor/limiter and an expander/gate. It is modelled on the original circuit design of the SSL 4000 B-Series channel strip as Installed in the 80s in ‘The Stone Room’ at Virgin’s Townhouse Studio (London), Le Studio (Montreal) and Record Plant (LA).

* Legendary SSL 4000 B Series Channel Strip circuitry
* Stepped compression rations 2:1, 4:1, 10:1 and 'ds'
* Automatic make-up gain with RATIO control
* DS setting has fast attack and release time
* OUT setting takes gate/expander out of circuit
* LINK sidechain prevents image shifts with stereo signals

Aggressive character compressor with its own unique sonic signature
The B-Series Dynamics Module features a compressor/limiter with three fixed stepped compression ratios 2:1, 4:1, 10:1 and an additional 'ds' mode. The 'ds' setting is a fixed 10:1 with additional sidechain filter. The differing topology makes the B-Series Dynamics module a more characterful and coloured Dynamics processor than the E-Series. Its gate/expander can act as a 20:1 gate or as a 2:1 expander when the EXP button is pressed. The OUT setting can also take the gate/expander out of the circuit independently of the compressor. The B-Series Dynamics Module's circuitry is based on the legendary original circuit design of the SSL 4000-B Series Channel Strip that gave that iconic 80's sound.
