Solid State Logic E-Series EQ 500-Series Module

The Solid State Logic 611EQ E-Series 500-Series Module reproduces the legendary sonic signature of an early 80's classic, the Solid State Logic SL 4000 E console channel strip, which has featured on countless classic recordings from the 1980's to the present.

Solid State Logic 611EQ E-Series 500-Series EQ Module Details

The Solid State Logic 611EQ E-Series 500-Series EQ Module reproduces the legendary sonic signature of an early 80's classic, the Solid State Logic SL 4000 E console channel strip, which has featured on countless classic recordings from the 1980's to the present.

This E-Series EQ Module for 500 Series racks is the combination of two different 4000 E EQ??s circuits, found on editions of the console produced between 1979 and 1987. Each of the two EQs features unique response curves and tonal character from one another. Historically, the type of EQ fitted in an individual console was distinguished by the colors used on the LF knob caps so the two flavors have become known as the ??Brown?? and ??Black?? EQ??s. On the E-Series EQ Module, you can easily switch between these two different flavors of EQ that have been loved by generations of professional producers.

The SSL channel EQ is the classic four band design with fully parametric LMF and HMF with Q controls, which has become the industry standard channel EQ configuration. The E-Series EQ features selectable shelving or Bell curve operation for the LF and HF frequencies.

A little SSL EQ history...

Prior to 1987 SSL used the colour of the Low Frequency EQ knob caps to indicate which type of EQ was fitted. All consoles were custom built and could feature different combinations of EQ module. The following colour codes apply:

  • E-Series BROWN: The original SSL EQ fitted to all consoles prior to the summer of 1985. Despite the rumours these equalisers only came in one version. The EQ card was called the '02'.
  • E Series ORANGE: The infamous EQP equaliser. This was a variation on the Brown EQ with controls simulating the curves of a valve type EQ. Very few were sold. This card was named the '132'.
  • E-Series BLACK: The last version of the standard E series EQ. It evolved in the early 1980's from discussions with many top engineers and proved very popular. The EQ card was called the '242'.
  • G-Series: With the arrival of the G Series console in 1987 the colour coding was abandoned and the classic SSL end cap colour scheme used today was adopted. First introduced in 1987 the original G Series EQ introduced Q characteristics which were proportional to gain settings and had a degree of over shoot when boosting and under shoot when cutting.

The current generation of SuperAnalogue console EQ (featured on Duality, AWS 900 + SE & the X-Rack EQ module) are switchable between EQ characteristics that offer either the E-Series 'Black' EQ or the G Series EQ.

The 'Brown' EQ, featured on the discontinued SSL E-Signature Channel Strip, is now uniquely available on the Solid State Logic 611EQ E-Series 500-Series Module.

What We Think

"The Solid State Logic 611EQ E-Series 500-Series EQ Module serves up SSL's famously favorite equalizers in the popular 500-series format for the first time. This is the perfect EQ for the 500-series enthusiast looking for the ability to really dig in and carve and shape a signal. The ability to switch between both the E-Series' Brown and Black versions ensures that you're not missing out on a thing with this version."
