SSL X-Rack Stereo Dynamic Module
Build the perfect SSL. 4U
Using identical circuit design and manufacturing to our Duality and AWS consoles, X-Rack is a modular rack system with Total Recall that delivers the classic SSL sound in a uniquely versatile form. Each X-Rack chassis holds up to eight modules in any configuration and there are a wide variety of modules on offer.
You could build a stunning SuperAnalogue front end for your recording system, with two different flavours of mic pre (SuperAnalogue and VHD), EQ, transparent dynamics and a powerful master section. Or create an SSL summing mixer with an ultra-pure analogue mix buss, using two different line input modules to achieve high channel counts or combine additional sources during mixdown to the legendary Stereo Bus Compressor. X-Rack delivers the very highest quality analogue recording and summing path and is the perfect configurable solution for studio or live applications.
The X-Rack chassis is a 4U 19″ rack housing with a premium grade power supply, MIDI IN/OUT connections and a Mix Bus Link port that enables two X-Racks to be cascaded. The chassis also houses the Total Recall system with onboard capacity to store 32 system snapshots (the snapshots can also be stored as MIDI SysEX).
X-Rack Stereo Dynamics Module
The X-Rack Stereo Dynamics module is a Stereo version of the powerful SSL channel dynamics. Featuring independent Compressor/ Limiter and Expander/Gate circuits, the Stereo Dynamics module provides the familiar SSL Superanalogue level control tools for both Recording and Mixing applications. The Compressor section can switch between a gentle Over easy RMS compression and a more aggressive Peak sensing or Hard Knee mode providing a wide range of levelling control. The secondary circuit can function as either a Noise Gate or an Expander further enhancing the creative sound sculpting possibilities. The feature set is completed by an External Key Input (mono) and the ability for multiple adjacent units to be linked.
