SSL 500 Series Stereo Bus Compressor Module

SSL's legendary bus compressor offered, at long last, as a 500 Series format rack module
MFR# 729726X2

Product Description

The SSL Stereo Bus Compressor delivers the incomparable sound of the legendary SSL G Series bus compressor in a compact 500-series package. Make your mixes sound bigger, fatter and punchier than ever with this classic bus compressor.

CLASSIC DESIGN

The SSL Stereo Bus Compressor module from the center section of the SL 4000 G Series console has been used on countless hit records over the years since it was first released in the 1980s. Now you can capture the same iconic sound right from your lunchbox with the new SSL Stereo Bus Compressor 500-series module. Based on the same design as the original G S-series models, the new SSL Stereo Bus Compressor 500-series module includes a number of new features and improvements that make it more versatile than ever.

UPDATED CONTROLS

The SSL Stereo Bus Compressor module features the same gooey sound you know and love with a few new updates for added flexibility.

The attack controls now offer six positions for a wider range of options. Choose from 0.1 ms, 0.3 ms, 1 ms, 3 ms, 10 ms, and 30 ms. Similarly, the release settings now include 0.1 sec, 0.2 sec, .4 sec, .8 sec, 1.6 sec and the dynamic AUTO setting.

Users can now select from a wider range of ratio settings to dial in everything from smooth, subtle compression to hyper-aggressive limiting. Choose from the following settings: 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10.

The new SSL Stereo Bus Compressor module also introduces a dedicated high-pass filter, making it ideal for use with bass-heavy instruments like kick drums, bass guitars, synths and more. Choose from 30 Hz, 60 Hz, 105 Hz, 125 Hz and 185 Hz.

STUNNING SOUND

While the original SSL bus compressor was designed for mix bus compression, this versatile 500-series module makes it easier than ever to add that same classic punch and power to any tracks. Dial in everything from massive, exciting drum sounds to thick, rich vocal tones and big, fat bass tracks. Of course, the SSL bus compressor still sounds great on the mix bus too!

Features:

  • Legendary sonic character of SSL Stereo Bus Compression
  • Six ratio settings ranging from 1.5:1 to 20:1
  • Five release settings and Auto Release function

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
