Solid State Logic Announces Fusion, Analog Outboard Processor

There's new colors for your studio from the masters of analog, SSL (Solid State Logic). Give your mix the analog edge it deserves with the Fusion outboard processor.

Solid State Logic and UK distributor Sound Technology are pleased to announce the SSL Fusion. Fusion is an all-analogue 2U outboard processor created for the modern hybrid studio. Fusion introduces five completely new analogue colouration tools designed to bring the perfect combination of added tonal character, weight and space to your mix bus or stereo stems, with the detail, warmth and finesse that only real analogue circuits can provide.

James Gordon, CEO of the Audiotonix Group, comments: “The introduction of Fusion marks the arrival of new studio tools from the studio masters that will colour the records we hear in the future. Having been fortunate enough to see and hear the development of this new unit, I think it leaves a strong impression of what’s to come."
Fusion features five analogue processors that can be used discretely or combined;

SSL Fusion Vintage Drive

Vintage Drive - is a unique non-linear harmonic enhancement circuit that brings cohesion and strength to your mix. Drive and Density controls interact to produce harmonic saturation and soft compression derived from overloading an analogue circuit. It can be used lightly for subtle thickening saturation or driven hard for more extreme distortion.

SSL Fusion Violet EQ

The SSL Violet EQ - an all-new minimum phase-shift, two-band shelving EQ. The first new SSL analogue EQ circuit for more than 25 years draws on the SSL legacy of carefully selected frequencies and response curves to create a musical and intuitive EQ designed to quickly dial in low-end weight and high-end sheen. High and Low frequency circuits each offer four switched frequency points and +/-9dB attenuation.

SSL Fusion High Frequency Compressor

A new High Frequency Compressor delivers the distinctive sound of high frequency rounding in the analogue domain. A compressor that effects high frequencies only, optimised for smooth and transparent harshness reduction and a tape-like high-frequency roll off – great for taming brittle high frequency fizz.

SSL Fusion Stereo Image Enhancer

A new Stereo Image enhancer provides a true analogue Mid-Side circuit that manipulates the Side signal, allowing for widening and spatial manipulation of the stereo field.

SSL Fusion SSL Transformer

A switched, custom-designed SSL Transformer circuit introduces subtle low-frequency saturation, alongside a high-frequency phase-shift. The result is a simultaneous thickening of the low-end and an added sparkle to the high-end.
The SSL sonic legacy is built upon a much-emulated collection of analogue audio processing tools that have featured in generations of studio consoles; pristine mic pre’s, classic Channel EQ & Dynamics, the legendary Stereo Bus Compressor, the Listen Mic Compressor, and the unique SSL summing bus. Fusion takes SSL into a new era with the introduction of a suite of new analogue processing tools that offer exceptional tonal character and versatility. Fusion expands the processing palette for hybrid studio owners and is a superb partner for the SSL Stereo Bus Compressor.

Pricing and Availability

The SSL Fusion will be shipping from November 2018 priced at £1499 SRP exc VAT.
