"SSL have evidently applied great skill and intelligence to produce this elegant and effective 'colouring' tool, which is equally well suited to mastering, mix-bus processing, and applying polish to in-the-box projects."
The Solid State Logic Fusion is an all-analogue 2U outboard processor created for the modern hybrid studio. Fusion introduces five completely new analogue colouration tools designed to bring the perfect combination of added tonal character, weight and space to your mix bus or stereo stems, with the detail, warmth and finesse that only real analogue circuits can provide. It is reviewed in the latest issue of Sound On Sound magazine.
"I found the Fusion very useful as a multi-function processor in my mastering chain. It was a delight to use it to add most welcome and attractive tonal and sonic enrichments to a wide range of mixes in wildly different styles and genres."
"...it serves to enhance the good and desirable aspects of a stereo mix or stem, but usually does this in a delightfully subtle, transparent way, while simultaneously gently suppressing the bad and undesirable. That's not to say it can't add crunch and grit, exaggerated smiley response curves, and excessive stereo image widths if that's desired - it most certainly can do that..."
"In short, then, the Fusion represents an interesting new direction for SSL, and it's one they've embarked upon with confidence and accomplishment. It’s a very well-built and expertly developed 'colouring' tool that exudes quality and class, both physically and sonically."
The full review can be found in the December 2018 issue of Sound On Sound magazine on sale now. The SSL Fusion is also available now priced at £1798.80 RRP inc VAT.
