Solid State Logic announces the newest component in its X-Rack modular rack system, the Eight Input Module, a line-input module designed to accommodate larger quantities of stereo line-level inputs from studio sources such as submixers and synthesizers.
The Eight Input Module offers greater connectivity than the Four Input Module but does not offer independent Level, Solo and Pan control. The line-input modules are both designed for use in conjunction with the recently released Master Bus Module, the summing, metering and control-room module that enables users to configure the X-Rack as a multi-input, dual-stereo bus mini SSL with Total Recall.
Key features include eight line-level inputs configured as four stereo pairs, mono/stereo switching for each stereo pair, additional insert points for inputs 1 and 2 and 3 and 4, and independent on/off switches for each stereo pair.
Based on SuperAnalogue electronics from SSL's XL 9000 K Series console, X-Rack is a modular rack system with Total Recall that delivers the SSL sound in a versatile form. Each X-Rack chassis holds up to eight modules in any configuration; with the introduction of the Eight Input Module, six different modules are offered.
EQ and Dynamics modules can be combined to form comprehensive stand-alone processing solutions. Recording channels and stand-alone mixers can be configured by adding Mic Amp, Master Bus, Four Input and Eight Input modules.
