SSL E-Series EQ MK2 500 Series Equalizer Module
The legendary SSL E-Series channel EQ packaged for your 500 Series rack, now with updated brushed aluminum front panel
The SSL E-Series EQ MK2 500 Series Equalizer Module reproduces the legendary sonic signature of an early 80s classic, the Solid State Logic SL 4000 E console channel strip, which has featured on countless classic recordings from the 1980s to the present.
The E-Series EQ Module features two different EQ's found on editions of the console produced between 1981 and 1989. Each EQ has unique response curves and tonal character.
Historically the type of EQ fitted in an individual console was distinguished by the colors used on the LF knob caps so the two flavors have become known as the 'Brown' and 'Black' EQ's. On the E Series EQ Module you can switch between these two different flavors of EQ that have been loved by generations of professional producers.
"Brown Knob" EQ - the original SSL EQ, sweet and musical
15 dB of cut/boost, and a special design that ensures the 3 dB up/down points for each band fall at the same musical interval from the center frequency. No matter where you cut or boost the 611EQ, the results sound musical and natural.
"Black Knob" EQ - a more aggressive EQ for modern styles
In the mid-'80s, SSL developed the 242 EQ circuit, or the "Black Knob" EQ to be found on later E Series consoles. It's more aggressive than the Brown Knob EQ, with up to 18 dB of cut or boost, and a different control law that gives you much tighter control over low frequencies. The module’s BLK switch gives you this alternative EQ characteristic at the press of a button.
