SSL VHD+ Pre Module

Uniquely versatile VHD based preamp technology

Description

The SSL VHD+ Pre Module for the popular 500 format modular rack platform makes the uniquely versatile VHD based preamp technology from Duality, SSL’s industry-leading large format studio console, available for studios of all sizes. The VHD+ Pre module is an immensely versatile recording and processing device. It can deliver ultra-clean SSL SuperAnalogueTM grade recordings but also features a switchable VHD mode. SSL’s patented Variable Harmonic Drive (VHD) system uses a 100% analog signal path to generate rich harmonic distortion.

Increase VHD input gain and the Variable Harmonic Drive process introduces either 2nd or 3rd harmonic distortion or a blend of the two to your source material. At lower gain settings it adds gentle valve-style warmth or a touch of transistor edge. As the gain is increased the more extreme the distortion becomes, until at high gain settings it delivers fierce trashy transistoresque grunge.

The VHD+ Pre module gives the user ultimate versatility from a studio-grade preamp. Whether it’s ultra-clean traditional SSL, subtle warming, or totally trashy transistor distortion, VHD will change your expectations of what a preamplifier should deliver.
