Consoles and Digital I/O Deliver SSL Sound, Functionality and Quality to Smaller Installations
ANAHEIM, CA â€“ Solid State Logic will feature the Matrix and X-Desk consoles along with X-Rack and XLogic Digital I/O at the 2010 Winter NAMM Show, Booth 6907, Hall A at the Anaheim Convention Center from January 14 to 17. Matrix and X-Desk continue the legacy of the industry changing AWS 900+ SE by delivering SSL sound and quality to smaller installations, while the X-Rack brings the sonic capabilities and functionality of the SSL flagship Duality console to any studio. XLogic I/O units provide extremely reliable and cost effective pathways to DAW systems. SSLâ€™s Duende DSP powered plug-ins will also be on show, bringing SSL audio quality and innovation to DAW processing.
â€œWe are very excited by the continued, trend-setting technical innovations our engineering staff has developed for all levels of the industry,â€? says Piers Plaskitt, CEO of SSL, Inc. â€œSSL has always defined the high end of the industry and now is defining creative capture on all levels from the superstar in a major recording studio to the beginning performer/composer creating in a home environment on a Mac or PC and everything in between.â€?
Matrix is a SuperAnalogueâ„¢ 16 channel, 40 input, line level mixing console with inbuilt signal router and multi-layer digital workstation control of up to four DAWs simultaneously. Matrix is ideal for any smaller studio installation where the focus is on state-of-the-art audio production and capture.
X-Desk is an innovative live level console that combines a 16 channel SSL SuperAnalogue summing mixer with a compact analogue audio hub, meeting the demand for a world class, yet compact SSL mixing desk. Small enough to be easily transported, X-Desk fulfills all the essentials of the audio mixing process, with typical SSL attention to detail and depth.
X-Rack is a modular rack system with TotalRecallâ„¢ that employs the same exemplary circuit design found in SSLâ€™s flagship Duality console. Each X-Rack chassis holds up to eight modules in any configuration with ten different superb sounding modules available. Module options include two different flavors of mic pre (SuperAnalogue and VHD), channel EQ, transparent Dynamics and the legendary Stereo Bus Compressor.
XLogic I/O Workstation Interface Solutions
The XLogic Alpha-Link Audio Converter range is a powerful yet cost effective family of fully featured multi-channel audio converters. They offer 64 channel MADI optical input and out connections, SSLâ€™s high quality 24-channel AD/DA converter circuitry and 24 channel Digital conversion via either ADAT or AES/EBU. Alpha-Link units can be used as standalone format converters, but used in combination with a MADI Xtreme, they provide a powerful, highly flexible I/O solution for native PC-based audio workstations.
The XLogic Delta Link MADI HD is the quintessential link to Pro Tools|HDÂ® for studio, live and broadcast applications. Any Multichannel Audio Digital Interface audio equipment, including routers, digital mixing consoles and converters, can now be directly interfaced with the Pro Tools|HDÂ® system providing simplified interconnectivity with significant cost reductions. A single Delta Link MADI HD can take the place of up to four Digi 192Â® Digital I/Oâ€™s, delivering dual feeds of 64 channels of digital audio interconnection from a single hardware interface.
XLogix MadiXtreme PCIe cards are the ideal computer audio interface for SSL Alpha-Link Converter units. The cards are also the perfect partners for MADI equipped consoles, live recording, installations and broadcast servers. The MadiXtreme 64 is a single connector card offering 64 channels, the MadiXtreme 128 is a dual connector card offering 128 channels.
Completing SSLs product line up at NAMM will be Duende, the DSP Powered SSL plug-in platform. Duende will be shown running Duende V3 and X-Verb, the acclaimed new plug-in that delivers hardware quality reverb processing.
