Solid State Logic XRack Dynamics Module

Note: Must be installed in an XRack or Mynx to function.

SSL's innovative new XRack Dynamics Module lets you piece together up to eight dynamics sections of a classic SSL XL 9000 K. The SSL Dynamics Module incorporates compression, limiting, expansion and gating with hard or soft knee operation and peak, or RMS sensing. All of this circuitry is designed using SSL's acclaimed SuperAnalogue design techniques to deliver fantastic sound quality with very low noise and distortion.

  • SSL's Capacitor-less SuperAnalogue Design
  • Compression, Limiting, Expansion, and Gating with Hard or Soft Knee Operation
  • Modular Rackmount Design
  • Total Recall

SSL's Capacitor-less SuperAnalogue Design
SSL put the same ultra-quiet, capacitor-less circuitry in the XRack Dynamics Module that they put in their super-expensive XL 9000 K mixing boards. With this capacitor-less design, you are assured that no matter how many XRack Dynamic Modules (or other SSL XRack Modules, for that matter), the units will remain phase linear year after year. This also means that each XRack Dynamics Module is an identical copy of any other one, providing a uniform sound. The SSL XRack Dynamics Module is the perfect way to get the classic sound of an SSL dynamics section and take it with you in your rack wherever you need to record or mix.

Compression, Limiting, Expansion, and Gating with Hard or Soft Knee Operation
The XRack Dynamics Module provides the classic sound of the dynamics section of a SSL XL 9000 K console which includes compression, limiting, expansion, and gating. With the XRack Dynamics Module you get Variable Ratio, Threshold and Release compressor adjustments, with RMS/Peak operation and fast/slow attack switches with LED monitoring to help keep an eye on the levels. The XRack Dynamics Module features balanced inputs and outputs, and has an external key to further expand its dynamic capabilities.

Modular Rackmount Design
By offering the XRack Dynamics Module in a convenient, vertical rackmount design, SSL is offering an opportunity to piece together a mixed-and-matched setup combining any number (up to eight per XRack) of classic SSL mic pres, EQs, or Dynamics Modules. This allows you to build your ideal setup. If you want three pres, an EQ, and four Dynamics Modules, you can. If you prefer more EQ options than Dynamics Modules, you can build it. Or if you'd like to have a 4-channel SSL front end with two classic EQs and two Dynamics Modules for post-recording tweaks, you can have that as well. With the XRack's modular design, you can customize the setup to suit your working style, which is quite an innovation - not to mention that all components that work with the XRack boast the legendary SSL sound.

Total Recall
The truly amazing thing about the XRack Dynamics Module (as well as the pres and EQ) is that the XRack integrates Total Recall - an absolute first in analog equipment. Total Recall allows you to set any or all of the modules in the XRack, dial in your perfect sound, and then save the preset to one of the 32 flash memory locations. Saving presets was once territory only traversed by digital outboard gear and plug-ins, but the XRack from SSL gives you the classic SSL analog sound with the convenience of digital. Once you've built your perfect SSL setup in the XRack and found your ideal sound, save the settings for the next time you need that awesome compression or EQ you used on the last session.
