Deceptively simply, extremely effective
SiX Channel Strip (SiX CH) is a single-width 500 Series channel strip using the SuperAnalogueTM channel processing features from SSL’s SiX console including the Mic-pre, low and high frequency EQ, as well as the single knob compressor.
SSL SuperAnalogueTM mic pre
+48V phantom power
Phase invert switch
5 segment LED meter in dBu
Switched 12 dB/oct, 75 Hz High Pass Filter (HPF)
Classic SSL HF and LF EQ
Switch from shelf to bell curve
Single knob Channel Compressor with variable Threshold.
Front Panel TRS Line Input with 1MΩ Hi-Z switch.
Dedicated output Trim
Using the same technology as SiX and large-format SSL consoles, SiX CH features a SuperAnalogueTM mic pre, offering wide gain range and ultra-low noise. It’s clean, fast and punchy - the perfect preamplifier for any source material.
SSL HF and LF EQ
SiX CH EQ is a classic SSL style gentle, broad stroke two-band design with high and low shelving filters at 3.5 kHz and 60 Hz, +/-15 dB gain range. Each band can be independently switched between shelving and bell curves. The bell curves change centre frequency to operate at 5 kHz and 200 Hz giving greater versatility from the two controls.
A ‘one knob’ channel compressor with features that give powerful and versatile performance from its deceptively simple controls. Using the tried and tested SSL feed-forward circuit design, program-dependant attack time and automatic make-up gain to maintain signal level.
TRS Line Input
The front facing TRS line input offers a convenient way to add instruments on the fly or use SiX CH as a feature packed summing module. 10 kΩ nominal Line Input impedance can be changed to 1 MΩ via the Hi-Z switch. The 1MΩ impedance makes this input suitable for very high impedance sources such as passive guitar pickups without the need for an external DI box.
