SSL 500-Series VHD+ Pre
The VHD+ Pre Module takes advantage of the VHD preamp technology found in SSL's Duality large format console and brings it to the 500 series format.
With a versatile voicing, it can deliver ultra clean recording as well as generate rich harmonic distortion with its switchable Variable Harmonic Drive system. Increase VHD input gain and the Variable Harmonic Drive process introduces either 2nd or 3rd harmonic distortion or a blend of the two to your source material. At lower gain settings it adds gentle valve-style warmth or a touch of transistor edge. As the gain is increased the more extreme the distortion becomes, until at high gain settings it delivers fierce trashy transistor-like grunge.
The VHD+ Pre module gives the user ultimate versatility from a studio grade preamp. Whether it's ultra-clean traditional SSL, subtle warming or totally trashy transistor distortion, VHD will change your expectations of what a preamplifier should deliver.
