The harmonic drive control really sets this channel strip apart from others. Once you decide if you like more 2nd or 3rd level harmonics, try out the listen comp for a very unique, but awesome sounding compressor.The listen comp is simple to use with one knob, and can be used in addition to the regular compressor on this channel strip, or on it's own. I also liked that it has a separate output gain, so I could drive the preamp harder, and then control the output so it wouldn't peak my audio interface. The preamp will be safely packed and insured for the full value. Feel free to ask any questions. CHECK OUT MY OTHER LISTINGS. Universal Audio 8810 8-channel Preamp. Yamaha NS10 monitors - ORIGINAL!
The XLogic E Signature Channel from SSL is a single channel microphone preamp/channel strip that brings the classic sound of the original early 1980s E Series console to a 19 1U rack. The unit delivers the choice of selectable transformer driven or Variable Harmonic Drive (VHD) microphone preamps, coupled with the world renowned "Listen Mic" compressor. The EQ section includes the original "Brown Knob" circuit that was standard on all early production E Series consoles. The two parametric mid-band sections feature SSL's classic logarithmically symmetric design that ensures that the +/-3dB up/down points retain the same musical interval from the centre frequency regardless of frequency and amplitude settings.In 1983 a new'242' EQ circuit was developed, the "Black Knob" EQ that featured enhanced cut and boost ranges (+/-18dB instead of +/-15dB) together with a different control law and a steeper 18dB/octave high pass filter for tighter control of low frequencies. The design is enhanced in the XLogic E Signature Channel via a CT OUT option that provides additional tonal variations. The Dynamics section of the unit comprises a compressor/limiter and an expander/gate, both of which use the same gain change element. A true RMS converter is used in the side chain, while the gain element is an all discrete design Class A VCA. Sound of the classic SSL E Series console channel strip in a rack-mount chassis.
