Patented VHD Circuitry
The SSL XRack VHD Input Module is a versatile, premium-quality mic preamp and compressor, designed for capturing studio-quality recordings. The VHD (Variable Harmonic Distortion) circuit is a patented circuit design which allows you to introduce 2nd or 3rd harmonic distortion to your source material, as well as being able to blend the two for added versatility. When in use at a lower gain setting, the VHD Pre adds a subtle valve-style warmth or a gentle transistor edge. Once you increase the gain, more distortion is added, allowing you to add everything from subtle crispness to fierce and in your face grunge. The result is a warm yet clear sound with grungy overtones, normally reserved for classic vintage preamps.
SSL Listen Mic Compressor
The SSL XRack VHD Input Module also features an integrated SSL Listen Mic Compressor, taken from the infamous SL4000E console. The SSL Listen Mic Compressor is renowned for its sonically transparent tone, with a fixed attack and release curve, ideal for recording drums. The Listen Mic Compressor was originally designed to prevent overloading the return feed from a studio communications microphone, but it also perfectly suited for use on ambient drum mics.

The SSL XRack VHD Input Module features a range of analog connections as well as a comprehensive range of controls. The 100% analog signal path ensures exceptional warmth while retaining the source materials overtones.

Both high and low-pass filters are also included allowing you to precisely dial in the right amount of filter you require. Also features is a dedicated Trim control after the VHD stage.
