Toronto, Canada (August 2, 2004)–Solid State Logic has announced that AudioPro International, Inc. was named the exclusive distributor of the new SSL AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System for the Canadian market. AudioPro sees the AWS 900 as the perfect system offering high-end sound and integrated workstation control at a cost effective price. AudioPro will also be setting up a demo facility for the AWS 900 in the near future.
“We only work with exclusive distribution deals involving high-end audio gear,” said Rick Schoustal, a principal partner of AudioPro International. “We think the AWS 900 is a fantastic fit for the type of installations we service. Canada has many smaller facilities that can’t afford a full-blown 9000 J or K Series. The AWS 900 is the perfect solution, bringing the benchmark sonic quality of SSL within reach of these facilities. We believe the Canadian market will aggressively embrace this console.”
With the advance of Pro Tools and other such recording and editing systems located in many facilities today, the AWS 900 bridges the gap between a simple digital control unit and the sterling sound of an SSL SuperAnalogue console. Using SuperAnalogue electronics time tested in the trend setting XL 9000 K Series, the AWS 900 is the only console that provides the dual benefits of a fully-featured SuperAnalogue signal path, coupled with a comprehensive DAW controller at this price point. The AWS 900 is built from the ground up for 5.1 surround mixing. Signal routing, inputs/outputs, monitoring and signal processing are all permanently available on the console. Top quality motorized faders provide conventional audio level control as well as controlling the recording and replay levels in a DAW.
“The AWS 900 is a true hybrid console and one of a kind,” asserted Schoustal. “Because so many people have moved to computer-based systems up here in Canada, to have a dedicated digital control surface that also brings with it the classic SSL sound quality and signal processing capabilities found only in the top shelf studios of the world is an obvious winner. Everyone loves the analogue sound of the K Series and now they can own it with the AWS 900.”
