Great dynamic module
AliC, 22.03.2014
A handy 500 series that I purchased together with the SSL EQ module and Buzz Audio Mic pre. I intended to use this for a stereo recording set up for guitar and sometimes Vocal.

Build quality
Great and professional looking with all the classic elements.

Ease of use
Typical dynamic parameters and pretty handy for set up.

Sound quality
Great warm and smooth sound. The gate function is very important to minimise the white noise created for the compressor in. It does not change that much the sound quality. I am extremely happy with its presence with my pre amp and eq module. I tested it with a Beyerdynamic M88 dynamic mic for a guitar strumming session. Great flat sound and make a lot of difference to the recording. It is also great for finger picking style.

Overall
Great 500 series module and given the price tag and sound quality, it should be a must go for pop/rock song production

I miss make-up gain
Orion Studios, 27.04.2021
The unit works perfectly. The gate function is amazing. And the compressor is very subtle and nice in the over-easy configuration. At the same time it can work in a faster attack setting that is way more aggressive.

I miss having make-up gain. The manual says this is automatic, but I'd crank it a bit more most of the time... anyway.

Recommended.

Profi Kompressor für spitzen Preis
Thomas B. 565, 14.10.2013
Sucht man SSL würdige Vergleichprodukte im 19" Format muss man schon das doppelte ausgeben. Der 611 DYN als System 500-Ausführung ist absolute Spitzenklasse.

Von softem Spitzen abfangen bis zur harten Limitation ist alles möglich. Dank den LEDs kann man die Kompression gut beobachten und man hat Zugriff auf alle wichtigen Parameter. Selbst das Auto-Make-up Gain ist so eingestellt wie man es selber nicht anders machen würde.

Größte Überraschung hier ist das Gate / Expander die mit 2 Drehreglern sofort eingestellt sind. Release zum Anpassen der Feinheiten ebenso vertreten. Und mit dem Bypass Knopf kann man immer schnell Original und bearbeitetes Signal vergleichen.

Klingt spitze für Vocals (Tipp: Dreht die Ratio ruhig mal hoch und nehmt den Expander hinzu)
Bass: Mit Fast-Attack bekommt ihr auch die ersten Peaks unter Kontrolle sowie mehr Sustain mit längerem Release.

Snare: Als Live- und Studio-Tool mittlerweile unabdinglich, da hier richtig hart eingegriffen werden kann und dank Gate kann man HiHat Übersprechen optimal ausblenden.

In Kombination mit einem Preamp / EQ hat man mit den System 500 Komponenten schnell einen absolut hochwertigen Channelstrip ohne dafür tausende von Euros zu bezahlen.
