Solid State Logic X Rack - E Series EQ Module

  • Immortal SSL 4000 E Series circuitry
  • Black 242 and Brown 02 twin EQ design
  • Bell curve option on HF and LF
  • Fully parametric LMF and HMF
  • Q Based on classic 611E console channel strip

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. The E Series EQ Module features two different EQs found on editions of the console produced between 1979 and 1987. Each EQ has unique response curves and tonal character. They are distinguished by the colors used on the LF knob caps so the two flavors have become known as the Brown and Black EQs. 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.

The Brown EQ, featured on the discontinued SSL E-Signature Channel Strip, is now uniquely available on the E Series EQ Module.

A little SSL EQ history
Prior to 1987 SSL used the color of the Low Frequency EQ knob caps to indicate which type of EQ was fitted. All consoles were custom built and could feature different combinations of EQ module. The following color codes apply:

E Series BROWN:
The original SSL EQ fitted to all consoles prior to the summer of 1985. Despite the rumors these equalizers only came in one version. The EQ card was called the 02.

E Series ORANGE:
The infamous EQP equalizer. This was a variation on the Brown EQ with controls simulating the curves of a valve type EQ. Very few were sold. This card was named the 132.

E Series BLACK:
The last version of the standard E series EQ. It evolved in the early 1980's from discussions with many top engineers and proved very popular. The EQ card was called the 242.

G Series:
With the arrival of the G Series console in 1987 the color coding was abandoned and the classic SSL end cap color scheme used today was adopted.

First introduced in 1987 the original G Series EQ introduced Q characteristics which were proportional to gain settings and had a degree of over shoot when boosting and under shoot when cutting. The current generation of SuperAnalogue console EQ (featured on Duality, AWS 900 + SE & the X-Rack EQ module) are switchable between EQ characteristics that offer either the E Series Black EQ or the G Series EQ.
