About The SSL Guitarstrip
The 4 carefully tailored guitar processing modules of SSL’s Guitarstrip provide many useful tools for crafting the perfect guitar tone at both the pre-mix and mixing stages.
Drive module allows you to easily add overdrive and grit to your guitar and bass DIs.
Phase Correction module allows you to intuitively identify phase issues between multiple recordings.
Compressor module allows you to quickly tame levels or add punch to your guitar tracks.
EQ module allows you, with its 3-band channel, to easily tone-shape.
How Does The SSL Guitarstrip Work?
Featuring two classic analogue drive emulations – guitar amp and bass amp – Guitarstrip‘s DRIVE module lets you easily add overdrive and grit to your guitar and bass DIs, tame harshness, or electrify your acoustic guitar recordings. Use the BOOST, PUNCH, EDGE and SHAPE controls to sculpt the added harmonics, and the DRIVE MIX control to dial in anything from trashy distortion to subtle saturation.
Guitarstrip also provides a dedicated COMPRESSOR section with 5 preset response characteristics to quickly tame levels or add punch to your guitar tracks.
Use the intuitive PHASE CORRECTION module to identify phase issues between multiple recordings – for example, between your guitar amp recording and pedalboard DI – and correct them using the DELAY, PHASE INVERT and ALLPASS filter. By setting the ALIGN TO mode, you can even repurpose the phase correction module delay as a quick-and-easy way to add stereo depth to a mono signal.
Finally, theres is an easy-to-use 3-band channel EQ, for overall tone-shaping. that includes an asymmetrical low gain control and automatic band auditioning.
