Get the NEW UltraViolet EQ from SSL

ULTRAVIOLET Stereo Equaliser (UV EQ) takes the acclaimed minimum phase-shift Violet stereo EQ section from Fusion and puts it into 500-series format, whilst adding two fully parametric SSL mid-band EQ's featuring precision 'Focus' mode for the ultimate in 500 Series EQ flexibility and tonal control. UV EQ is the perfect partner for the SSL G-COMP Stereo Bus Compressor module, offering advanced SSL processing all from 500 Series modules.

Beyond Violet is ULTRAVIOLET
Over and above Fusion's Violet EQ, UV EQ takes features further, adding two dedicated mid-bands, with precision Focus mode. They're classic SSL parametric mid-bands capable of the traditional SSL processing techniques but also go far beyond, offering absolute surgical precision all the way to creative 'notch' style filtering and resonant screaming.

Focus mode
Focus mode allows users to ‘hone in’ on problem frequencies or specific frequencies they want to accentuate or attenuate. Pressing the ‘Focus’ switch in, automatically narrows the chosen Q setting further and increases the range of gain available beyond the normal +/-9 dB operation, to a huge +/-18 dB. In true flexible SSL workflow fashion, it transforms this sweet sounding, musical SSL EQ into a more surgical tool.

HPF & Trim
Remove rumble and tighten up low frequencies, the HPF found on UV EQ brings a world of flexibility when processing low end. The interaction with LF shelving band offers unique ways to sculpt signals and yes, UV EQ is capable of the sought after boost + cut effect. Dedicated Trim control means you can hit convertors with plenty of headroom or smash into them the perfect amount when clipping is desired.

UltraViolet EQ Features:

  • Packs 4 bands of SSL console-style sound shaping into a 500 Series module
  • Fusion-derived high/low shelving bands and 2 fully parametric midbands with ±9dB of gain
  • High band gives you a frequency selection of 8kHz, 12kHz, 16kHz, and 20kHz
  • Low band gives you a frequency selection of 30Hz, 50Hz, 70Hz, and 90Hz
  • High midband ranges from 400Hz–6kHz with a continuously variable Q
  • Low midband ranges from 100Hz–1.1kHz with a continuously variable Q
  • Highpass filter includes Off, 30Hz, 40Hz, and 50Hz settings
  • Focus narrows the corresponding band's Q setting and increases its gain range for surgical sonic sculpting
  • ±12dB output trim makes achieving proper gain staging a breeze
  • Bypass switch makes A/B comparisons a piece of cake
