OVERVIEW

Rackmount channel strip featuring the design and sound of SSL's groundbreaking E Series console.

The E-Signature Channel offers two distinctive EQ options coupled with the most musical dynamics processor available in either the analogue or digital domain. With the addition of the no-holds-barred sound of an SSL Listen Mic compressor and the groundbreaking tube emulation preamp option, the E-Strip delivers a front end with the versatility and flexibility to capture and enhance any musical performance that needs a distinctive 'vintage' character.

In late 1979 an audio legend was born. The Solid State Logic 4000E Master Studio System forever changed how records would be recorded and mixed. Within less than three years, every major studio worldwide featured at least one room with an SSL E-Series console. A new generation of Producer/Engineers could now work on projects on a global basis with their console of choice simply by carrying a computer disk containing all the session data from studio to studio. One key element made this possible: the E-Series channel strip.

The E Channel Strip featured an unparalleled design whose sonic performance was equivalent to any outboard preamp or processing unit then available. This was further enhanced by carefully conceived channel routing options that provided simple access to a vast range of advanced dynamics and EQ processing configurations that normally would have required a rat's nest of patch cords to achieve.

Over the years the console went through many circuit revisions and enhancements eventually evolving into the latter G and G+ series consoles. However, the sonic subtleties of those early consoles are very much desired and impossible to re-create without the necessary design expertise within SSL.

The success of the E Series sound was borne out by the rapid change in drum sounds that occurred on recordings from that period, all which took advantage of the compressors and gates in every channel. When used together with the side-chain trigger options, rhythm tracks literally jumped out of the speakers. So much so that all the early manufacturers of digital reverbs attempted emulations of the classic Solid State Logic analogue gated ambience mic drum sound with various degrees of success.

The SSL E-Series EQ also played a major role in the aggressive guitar sounds of the post-punk era with ranges that immediately matched the key frequencies bands of miked guitar amps. The versatility of the processing received further positive critical endorsements as established European Broadcasters installed SSL consoles in their prestigious classical music studios and concert halls.

The XLogic E Signature Channel was extensively researched from SSL's design archives to accurately recreate the sound of the channel strip shipped with the groundbreaking first generation consoles installed at the beginning of the 80's.

As even then, the design was continually evolving in response to user feedback, various key modifications have been incorporated into the SSL E Strip's front-panel switched options.
