The SSL SiX Channel delivers the the SuperAnalogueTM channel from SSL's SiX small format console to the 500 series format. It includes the mic-pre, the low and high frequency EQ as well as the single know compressor.
Using the same technology as SiX and large-format SSL consoles, is offers a wide gain range and ultra-low noise preamp. It’s clean, fast and punchy - the perfect preamplifier for any source material. The EQ is a classic SSL style gentle, broad stroke two-band design with high and low shelving filters and each band can be independently switched between shelving and bell curves. The ‘one knob’ channel compressor is powerful and versatile, using the tried and tested SSL feed-forward circuit design, program-dependant attack time and automatic make-up gain to maintain signal level.
The front facing TRS line input offers a convenient way to add instruments on the fly or use SiX CH as a feature packed summing module. 10 kΩ nominal Line Input impedance can be changed to 1 MΩ via the Hi-Z switch. The 1MΩ impedance makes this input suitable for very high impedance sources such as passive guitar pickups without the need for an external DI box.
