Prioritize Character with This Classic SSL EQ


The channel strip EQ in SSL consoles has been a huge factor in the enduring popularity of the SSL sound. SSL produced several channel strip EQ variations over the years, with each type having its own special, distinct character. The 292 was one of the last iterations of SSL’s famed EQ designs.

The G-EQ is modeled after the rack-mounted version of SSL’s G 292 EQ, boasting the “pink knob” EQ. When engineers prioritize character and shape over detail, the fabled 292 is often their EQ of choice.

  • Proportional-Q design for gentler tonal shifts, and smooth sound
  • 2 fully parametric stages, 2 shelving stages, 2 filters (LP, HP)
  • HMFx3 and LMF÷3 buttons switch center frequencies with one click
  • Steep high-pass filter for tight, low-frequency control
  • Analog on/off switch for analog character, or digital transparency
  • Parametric stages have greater boost and cut than previous EQs
Watch It in Action

SSL G or E EQ? Both.

  • Go for More Extreme Character

    Add the SSL G-EQ to your chain to create more extreme equalization than with the E-Channel Strip. Many engineers use the E-Channel’s EQ for detail work, adding the SSL G-EQ further down the chain to give the sound extra character.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • More Sonic SSL Options

    For the two parametric stages, the 292 has an increased boost/cut range up to ±20 dB—and ±17 dB for the shelving stages. This considerable increase over the original E-series EQs gives even more sonic options.

  • Sweeter Shelving

    The shelving EQ stages have a slight pre-boost dip and pre-cut rise. This gives the low shelf warmer lows, while the high shelf has more definition and clarity from giving a lift just above the midrange area.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Change Character with One Click

    The parametric stages can choose from two ranges—the high-mid stage’s HMFx3 button multiplies the center frequency by 3, while the low-mid stage’s LMF÷3 button divides the frequency by 3.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • Faithful to the Original

    The G-EQ models the noise and harmonic distortion of analog devices. Use the Analogue on/off switch to leave it in for analog character and a slight edge, or turn it off for pristine digital transparency.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
