Solid State Logic is now shipping the X-Desk ($2,899) mixer. The X-Desk combines a 16-channel SSL SuperAnalogue summing mixer with a compact analog audio hub. Small enough to be easily transported, X-Desk offers all the essentials of the audio mixing process, including smooth 100mm faders, comprehensive artist and studio monitoring with Dim & Cut buttons, Stereo and Mono Aux sends, channel and Master Bus Inserts and accurate bar graph level metering.
For easy integration into an existing studio, X-Desk can be used as an elegant and ergonomically refined desktop mixer with removable rack ears for standard 19-inch rackmounting (seven rackspaces are required). As an SSL SuperAnalogue product, X-Desk is said to be extremely robust, hand-built in the UK with an all-metal chassis and high quality controls and components. Up to eight X-Desks or X-Desk & X-Rack combinations can be cascaded via D-Sub connection to expand up to 160 inputs on mixdown. SSl states that X-Desk brings benchmark audio performance to the compact mixer format.
