The new E Series Dynamics Module for 500 Series racks
reproduces 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 Dynamics Module features a compressor/limiter and an expander/gate,
both of which return faithfully to the circuitry and key components which
define the sound of the original SL 611E Series channel strip.
Immortal SSL 4000 Series circuitry
Class A VCA replication
Based on the classic 611E console channel strip
Channel compression in 500 series A true RMS converter is used in the side chain while the gain element is an all-discrete design identical to the Class A VCA chip used in the original unit. The compressor contains additional switching options to defeat the over-easy curve and to use a linear release instead of the more usual logarithmic curve. The result is a compressor with three distinct voices, each with its own musical character.
