SSL 500-Series SiX Channel
Bastoche, 22.05.2021
Utilisation en prise de son Home studio.
Préampli très musical au son moderne et à l'utilisation intuitive, produit complet et très bien pensé pour optimiser et corriger la prise de son.

La possibilité d'utiliser des filtres high and low shelf à 3,5 kHz et 60 Hz, où les courbes en cloche (Bell) de fréquence centrale à 5 kHz et 200 Hz, offre une grande polyvalence des deux commandes EQ.
Compresseur puissant, très musical et polyvalent.

La finition et l'ergonomie est excellente, le son et les fonctionnalités sont tout simplement TOP.

No esta mal.
Mono Vladd, 15.06.2021
Lo compre por la novedad de la actualización de SSL, junto con un VHD+ y ademas porque vi buenos comentarios de la pequeña consola SSL SIX.
Es super bonito, tiene muchas funciones y suena muy bien.
Pero creo que luego de probarlo al final llegue a la conclusión de que esta mas enfocado a un pequeño home studio sin otros equipos externos.
El pre esta bien. tiene lo que se necesita pero me falto mucho el pad -20db. fuentes como tarola o amplificador con un micro condensador vuela en picos. y si usas el compresor mas aun porque tiene autogain.

La etapa de EQ es bien intuitiva con esos cambios de frecuencia cuando usas los botones para solo colorear un poco. Yo personalmente prefiero hacerlo post en edición. así que al final termine desactivando

La etapa de compresión si estaba buena y creo que fue la que mas me gusto, es suave (2.1) y te sirve para controlar los picos De Fuentes muy dinámicas. (voces, guitarras acústicas, trompetas, bajo, bongo, y en teclados cuando lo usas en TRS)

En conclusión: Recomiendo este modulo para todo aquel que tenga un home studio. Creo que es ahí donde esta enfocado este modulo, ademas que esta a muy buen precio.
Pero para su uso en mi estudio teniendo varios modelos externos y preamps legendarios pues creo que no me es muy útil. A mi me gusta tener solo lo que usaré, no me gusta llenarme de cosas solo por coleccionar.
Yo lo he devuelto hoy. No porque sea malo, si no porque creo que no esta hecho para mi. Me costo un poco hacerlo porque esta muy guapo pero al final fui mas objetivo.

PD: Le di 3 estrellas en construcción por que había un botón que hacia un sonido raro y a veces se bloqueaba un poco. Pero nada grave.
Fuera de todo ello, super guapo y muy bien.

Saludos.

Ein kleines Stück SSL Hardware...
GerRei, 04.07.2021
Trotz meiner vielen (zu vielen) Plugins (durchaus sehr gute von UA) habe ich immer wieder mit Hardware geliebäugelt, ich mag es Knöpfe zu drehen...., hab auch deswegen die Softube Consolen in Verwendung; nun gut: immer wieder überlegte ich mir den SSL Six Mixer zu bestellen - und siehe da, auf einmal erschien der SSL CH im 500er Format!
Nicht lange überlegt und zum Testen bestellt: Getestet mit Mikros (AKG, Austrian Audio) und über den Hi-Z Eingang mit Akustikgitarre;
Verglichen habe ich a) direkt ins Apollo Twin X Interface b) Interface + SSL Preamp Plugin, den ich häufig bei Aufnahmen verwende und dann c) mit dem neuen SSL CH;
Mein Fazit: tolles günstiges Teil - kein Rauschen, klingt durchwegs angenehm, bei Verwendung des Kompressors und des 2-Band-EQ spürbare Verbesserung der Aufnahme (keine chirurgischen Eingriffe möglich, dafür auch nicht gemacht) auch im Vergleich mit dem Plugin ist er mein Testsieger!
Wenn man bei der Aufnahme schon fixe Entscheidungen trifft, erspart man sich viel Zeit beim Mixen. Ich kann dem Testbericht (bonedo) nur beipflichten! Bei diesem Preis kann man nichts falsch machen.
Außerdem: ein Stückchen von einem legendären SSL Pult zu haben - und wenn es nur ein 500er Format ist - das hat schon was! Werde mir noch einen zweiten bestellen, um damit den Stereomix zu "behübschen".
