The Solid State Logic UltraViolet 500-Series Equalizer takes the acclaimed minimum phase-shift EQ section from Fusion and puts it into the 500 Series format.
The ULTRAVIOLET EQ takes things a little further than Fusion by adding two dedicated mid-bands, with a unique Focus control, for ultimate EQ flexibility. An ideal partner to the legendary 500 Series SSL Bus Compressor, the ULTRAVIOLET EQ draws on the SSL legacy of careful selection of frequencies and response curves to create a musical and intuitive EQ designed to quickly dial in a radio-ready sound for your mix.
Focus mode allows the user 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. In true flexible SSL workflow fashion, it transforms this sweet sounding, musical SSL EQ into a more surgical tool.

Great equalizer!Nov 21st 2022
This is the first time I have purchased an SSL hardware product. This equalizer allows me to express the texture of the music I listen to every day. I feel the familiar texture of the SSL especially in the wide range and midrange. It's punchy and out of the box. It is the only hardware equalizer I have. So I use it not only on the master bass, but also on the drum bass and each part. It has a very wide range of uses and I highly recommend it as a first hardware EQ like mine. Above all, the price of $499 during the sale is phenomenal. It is too high value for money. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version) I think I will be using this equalizer for a long time.
Are you kidding? Just buy it.Nov 21st 2022
Better than your average 4-band EQ, yet it may be the lowest priced stereo EQ in the 500 series market. The focus feature is a nice addition. I briefly hesitated, since half of this unit is redundant with the SSL Fusion, but then I realized I just have the option to cut and boost at those frequencies.
