The SSL AWS 900+ Analogue Workstation System at Coupe Studios in Boulder, Colo.
Solid State Logic (SSL) announced that it has sold more than 300 of its TEC Award-winning AWS 900+ Analogue Workstation Systems over its three-year history, and continues to receive orders at a brisk pace. The AWS 900+ is found in elite commercial and private production facilities worldwide, and many prestigious engineers and producers choose to record and mix with the console.
Dr. Dre employs the AWS 900+ console in his private, Los Angeles-based studio. Doug E. Fresh, another hip hop legend, has installed this console in his studio in New York City.
In Chicago, Percy Bady of Kingdom Biz Records installed the console at his label’s in-house facility. “We wanted a place where we could consistently work on developing projects and not have to worry about watching the clock,” Bady explains. “At the same time, we wanted to offer our artists state-of-the-art equipment within a facility that felt like home.” New York City-based 785 Records also installed an AWS 900+ in its in-house studio.
Producer/artist Rory Kaplan installed the AWS 900+ in his private studio along with SSL XLogic gear, including the X-Rack modular summing system, a Multichannel Compressor and two Alpha-Link AX converters in conjunction with two Mixpander 64-channel PCI audio interface cards for use with his digital audio workstation.
More recent installations include Coupe Studios, a full-service, creative audio production facility based in Boulder, Colo. (pictured); Yahoo! Music, which uses the AWS 900+ to create exclusive music content in its Santa Monica, Calif.-based production facilities; E Labs Remote Productions, a recording truck that also features an X-Rack system with eight Mic Amp modules; and Platinum – The Club, a three-story, state-of-the-art entertainment center in Los Angeles.
“The most gratifying aspect of SSL’s AWS 900+ is how satisfied our users are with the unique sound quality and DAW operation,” says SSL president Phil Wagner.
