Modular SSL processing in 4U rack
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, or adding 4K EQ and the legendary Stereo Bus Compressor.
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).
Stereo Bus Compressor Module
The centre section compressor from the 1980’s G-Series analogue console is an audio production legend. It is a simple unit with a simple purpose; it makes complete mixes sound bigger, with more power, punch and drive. It brings cohesion and strength to your mix without compromising clarity. The Stereo Bus Compressor Module brings this classic ‘audio glue’ to you with spectacular SuperAnalogue audio performance.
SuperAnalogueTM Dynamics Module
Designed to be the perfect level control tool kit for recording, the Dynamics Module is densely packed with control features yet simple to use. The combination of separate Compressor and Gate/Expander section is powerful, graceful and ideal for gentle and unobtrusive level control.
E-Series Dynamics Module
The E-Series Dynamics Module is one of two new modules for the X-Rack/Mynx SuperAnalogueTM modular mixing and processing system. The new E-Series Modules reproduce the legendary sonic signature of an early 80’s classic, the SL 4000 E console channel strip, which was featured on countless 1980’s recordings.
VHD Input Module
Combines the uniquely versatile VHD Pre with the classic SSL Listen Mic Compressor. The VHD Pre is a patented SSL preamp design that can deliver ultra-clean SSL grade recordings but also features the VHD circuit which can be switched into the signal path. The Variable Harmonic Drive circuit uses a 100% analogue signal path to generate rich harmonic distortion.
SuperAnalogueTM EQ Module
Classic SSL four-band parametric EQ that is a superb all round frequency adjustment tool kit. Whether you need pinpoint accuracy for surgical problem solving, smoother broader sound shaping or a little more aggressive character the SSL EQ will give you what you need.
E-Series EQ Module
The new E-Series EQ Module is one of two new modules for the X-Rack/Mynx SuperAnalogue modular mixing and processing system. The new E-Series Modules reproduce the legendary sonic signature of an early 80’s classic, the SL 4000 E console channel strip, which was featured on countless 1980’s recordings.
Stereo SuperAnalogueTM 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.
Mic Amp Module
Angelically pure and versatile input section with a choice of three separate input amplifiers; Mic amp, front panel Instrument input or Line input. Designed for transparency and versatility with a set of High and Low Pass Filters, phase reverse and everything you need from a very classy workhorse.
