Console manufacturer Solid State Logic has appointed Colin Lee as product manager for its recently introduced XLogic range of rack-mounted outboard equipment.
Previously, Lee held the position of product manager at Snell & Wilcox where he was responsible for high definition broadcast equipment and he spent a number of years with Soundcraft where he was part of the team that developed the Spirit range of compact mixers.
For the past two years, Lee has been running his own company outside the pro audio business but he was tempted back into the industry by SSL because he felt that managing the XLogic range presented such an exciting challenge.
Lee says, “Given my long-standing interest in music, it’s great to be back in the audio industry and to be part of a company that I have always held in such high regard. The XLogic range is a natural progression for SSL and I’m really looking forward to playing a part in its future success.”
Since launching XLogic at AES 2003 in October, SSL has enjoyed positive response, with over 600 units now sold worldwide. Developed from SSL’s renowned XL 9000 K Series console, each XLogic unit features the company’s SuperAnalogue™ audio quality. The products can be used with a wide variety of applications, such as high-resolution digital recording for the latest DAW systems and compression for DVD mastering.
The XLogic product range consists of five units: the XLogic XL Channel, XLogic 5.1 multichannel compressor, XLogic 4-channel SuperAnalogue mic amp, classic G Series stereo compressor, as well as a mic amp remote.
Lee is now the central point of contact for XLogic. His responsibilities include liaising between SSL’s engineering department and its XLogic distributors; he will also be attending trade exhibitions and arranging demonstrations to promote XLogic to end-users.
