Unique SSL Dynamics for Your Rack
The Solid State Logic SL 4000E Series console of 1979 transformed the music business and catapulted the company from cottage industry into one of the planet’s preeminent console manufacturers. SL4000E desks quickly found their way into studios all over the world. Engineers loved the Total Recall system that let them walk into any SSL studio with an 8″ floppy of their session and have it play back with near perfection. Another feature they loved was the SSL Listen Mic Compressor. Its original intent was to avoid overloading the return feed from a studio communications mic, but engineers soon found that its fixed attack and release curves were ideal for ambient drums mics. The LMC+ Module brings that magic to the 500 Series format.
Updated with cool new features
The Solid State Logic LMC+ 500 Series Module includes two classic SSL highpass and lowpass filters that let you easily target specific frequency ranges. Also onboard is a cool “filters to compressor sidechain” option, as well as a wet/dry mix control. New to this 500 Series version: a Scoop button, which phase-inverts the wet signal, and a Split button, which activates a special bandpass-subtraction mode. Sweetwater engineers have found that whether you use these separately or together, in combination with the filters and sidechain, you can open up a world of creative possibilities. The Solid State Logic LMC+ 500 Series Module is a unique tonal shaping tool you don’t want to be without.
