Solid State Logic SSL UV500
The Solid State Logic SSL UV500 (UV EQ) takes the acclaimed minimum phase-shift Violet Stereo EQ section from Fusion putting it into the 500-series format. All while adding two fully parametric SSL mid-band EQ’s featuring a precision ‘Focus’ mode. So you have the ultimate in 500 Series EQ flexibility and tonal control. All in all, the UV500 UV EQ is the perfect partner to combine with the SSL G-COMP Stereo Bus Compressor Module. Offering advanced SSL processing all from 500 Series Modules.
Beyond Violet is ULTRAVIOLET – UV EQ
Taking it even further than the Violet EQ, UV EQ adds in two dedicated mid-bands with precision Focus. These classic SSL parametric mid-bands are capable of the traditional SSL processing techniques. But will also go far beyond, giving you absolute precision all the way to creative ‘notch’ style filtering and resonant screaming.
Furthermore, the UV EQ Focus Mode allows you to ‘hone in’ on those problem frequencies or certain frequencies you want to accentuate or attenuate. Press the Focus switch in and it will automatically narrow the chosen Q setting further. Therefore increasing the range of gain available to beyond the traditional +/-9dB operation to a massive +/-18dB. So you’re able to transform the sweet-sounding, musical SSL EQ into a more surgical tool.
HPF & Trim
Finally, the HPF on the UV EQ gives you so many possibilities for processing low end. Remove rumble and tighten things up, the interaction with the LF shelving band offers unique ways to sculpt signals. It’s also capable of the sought after boost and cut effect. While dedicated trim control means you can hit convertors with plenty of headroom. Or, smash them into the perfect amount when clipping is desired.
