Do you know the secret of how to give your mixes that finished record sound that you've heard on professional recordings for over twenty years? We do and now so will you. It's the center console stereo bus compressor from the Solid State Logic SL 4000 G Series console, the world's most successful studio production console. Can't afford the $500K price tag? Not to worry, SSL has taken the G Series center compressor, racked it, and added their latest SuperAnalogue design topology, to bring you the XLogic G Series Compressor.
The ability to 'patch' into the SL 4000's center compressor, and also control its sidechain from an internal sub-mix, allowed engineers to discover the amazingly unique qualities of this compressor for use on instruments like piano and drums, as well as its classic mix-finalizing capabilities. As a result, the center compressor was considered to be an essential tool by recording professionals, which created demand for a rackmountable unit, and thankfully, SSL responded.
The XLogic G Series Compressor is a 1-space rack mounting stereo compressor that utilizes the classic SSL G Series center compressor design elements within a SuperAnalogue design topology. It is the latest version of the same compressor found in the Solid-State Logic SL 4000, and it uses the same classic twin VCA design as its console counterpart. Combined with improved input and output circuitry, this new unit provides spectacular audio performance with universally acclaimed audio compression characteristics that have provided numerous hit mixes for the world's best audio engineers. A key element in the sound of many of these recordings is punch and drive created by the classic G-series center compressor but we don't have to try to tell you what the G Series Compressor sounds like cause you've already heard it. All you need to know is that if you strap one across the stereo bus of your DAW or console, you'll have it too.
