Deceptively simply, extremely effective

SiX Channel Strip (SiX CH) is a single-width 500 Series channel strip using the SuperAnalogueTM channel processing features from SSL’s SiX console including the Mic-pre, low and high frequency EQ, as well as the single knob compressor.

  • Phase invert switch
  • 5 segment LED meter in dBu
  • Switched 12 dB/oct, 75 Hz High Pass Filter (HPF)

SuperAnalogue

Using the same technology as SiX and large-format SSL consoles, SiX CH features a SuperAnalogueTM mic pre, offering wide gain range and ultra-low noise. It’s clean, fast and punchy - the perfect preamplifier for any source material.

SSL HF and LF EQ

SiX CH EQ is a classic SSL style gentle, broad stroke two-band design with high and low shelving filters at 3.5 kHz and 60 Hz, +/-15 dB gain range. Each band can be independently switched between shelving and bell curves. The bell curves change centre frequency to operate at 5 kHz and 200 Hz giving greater versatility from the two controls.

Channel compressor

A ‘one knob’ channel compressor with features that give powerful and versatile performance from its deceptively simple controls. Using the tried and tested SSL feed-forward circuit design, program-dependant attack time and automatic make-up gain to maintain signal level.

TRS Line Input

The front facing TRS line input offers a convenient way to add instruments on the fly or use SiX CH as a feature packed summing module. 10 kΩ nominal Line Input impedance can be changed to 1 MΩ via the Hi-Z switch. The 1MΩ impedance makes this input suitable for very high impedance sources such as passive guitar pickups without the need for an external DI box.
