Anaheim, CA (January 21, 2010)–The NAMM Show saw the unveiling of Solid State Logic’s X-Patch, which is designed to deliver plug-in style routing to boutique analogue processing.
Developed from technology at the heart of SSL’s Matrix console, X-Patch provides a 16×16 SuperAnalogue routing matrix that can be Ethernet controlled remotely from a standard computer. SSL’s Logictivity remote studio browser application provides set-up, configuration and preset storage, allowing X-Patch to incorporate analogue processing into any production studio environment.
X-Patch can function as a simple X-Y Router or as a Matrix to create complex processing chains. This allows for analogue processing to be built into favorite processing chains and then placed into signal paths, for example, favorite Mic Pre, EQ and Dynamics processors recalled as the perfect vocal chain at a single stroke. The aim is for X-Patch to speed up workflow and aid creativity by reducing the physical re-patching required when using only a patch bay for routing. Up to six X-Patch units can be controlled in parallel from a single instance of the X-Patch Logictivity Browser software.
X-Patch can also be used as a stage or studio live performance tool for guitarists. Once configured, X-Patch can operate independently of the Studio Browser application and host computer and has MIDI connections. Connection of a standard MIDI foot controller to X-Patch creates a stand-alone analogue routing/switching system for on-stage boutique instrument processing, or amplifier selection.
