Flo Audio has launched SSL Channel Strip Impulse Set, a collection of 50 impulse responses from an SSL channel strip.
Here’s a capture of my SSL hardware channel strip. I’ve managed to capture its EQ, high pass, made a mock up of a low pass filter by setting up eq curves, and finally had some harmonic distortion with pass through captures.
I did it all with sine sweeps, so you won’t have problems with feedback or unwanted resonances, i also made sure to leave plenty of headroom, so you can throw high level signals at it and it should be ok, but still, pay attention to gain staging, it’s important no matter what!
The pack is available for purchase for 5 EUR.
