Las Vegas, NV (April 22, 2005)–Solid State Logic presented the new AWSomation automation option at NAB2005. The AWSomation automation package adds to the appeal of the AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System by providing critical control of the console, and is a fully featured automation package developed from SSL’s renowned G and K Series Ultimation automation systems with a feature set designed specifically for the AWS 900.
AWSomation uses a classic, G Series style, SSL look and feel, familiar to thousands of engineers worldwide. It adds dynamic fader and cut automation to the powerful AWS 900. MIDI timecode is used as the positional reference together with support for MIDI Machine control locate commands to follow non-play-speed positional changes from the DAW.
AWSomation data can be stored in the host workstation as MIDI System Exclusive data, therefore providing maximum integration and compatibility with the host platform and retaining the project and set-up data in a single file system.
Key AWSomation features are accurate fader and cut automation data, group fader control (Fader Links), mix pass history for easy revision, AutoTakeover, variable fader glide times, fader safe mode, and Match and Play automation updates.
“The initial market reactions to the AWS 900 have been fantastic,” commented Niall Feldman, director of product marketing. “The vast majority of users find it ideal for their DAW-based production requirements. Following last year’s launch of a Total Recall package, the single most requested additional feature has been the automation for the AWS 900. To answer that request, SSL’s new AWSomation package will be launched at NAB 2005, with availability shortly after the show.”
Approaching 100 systems sold since its launch earlier at NAB 2004, the AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System is SSL’s fastest selling console.
