  • Overview:

    From SSSS: "Our philosophy is that high-quality audio hardware and a low price point need not be mutually exclusive - we have operated studios on strict budgets, and understand the need to make every dollar count. Our designs are innovative and unique. We start each product with a clean slate, not looking to recreate vintage units, but rather to build something fresh, that can stand on its own merits. Finally, we work to keep our manufacturing within the United States whenever possible our PCBs, metalwork, and product assembly as well as all testing are done right here in Colorado, USA. Furthermore, whenever possible, key components are American made."

Solid State Audio Processors:

  • Model One B:

    Single channel, three band Inductor based equalizer.

    Our opinion: Surprisingly good single channel solid state Inductor based handmade (USA) EQ. More flexible than most Pultec clones with similar characteritics. Incredible price/performance ratio.

    • The Square State Solid State Model 1B is a single channel, three band equalizer housed in a 1 RU chassis. The equalizer stages are comprised of inductor-capacitor filters, components commonly found in classic EQs. The EQ offers 6 frequency selections per band, each offering roughly 20 dB of cut/boost. The bell-shaped (bandpass) response curves are broader than similar equalizers, lending themselves to a very musical sound. Additionally, the high and low frequency bands offer both shelving and bell responses. Using the bells on the high and low frequencies allows the operator to address a more specific sonic region than a shelving filter.
    • The Model1B is well suited to experimentation. It is easy to get to know the controls by running prerecorded tracks, such as CDs or MP3s, through it. Select a frequency with one of the small knobs then listen to the effect of turning the corresponding large knob. The small knob selects a portion of the audio spectrum, and the large knob affects a cut or boost of that portion.
