Los Angeles, CA (February 11, 2004)–Solid State Logic received the prestigious 2004 Technical Grammy Award at the 46th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony. The award recognizes SSL for the design and production of audio mixing consoles over the years.
“We are delighted to receive this special award,” said Colin Pringle, managing director of Solid State Logic. “The Grammy Awards recognize outstanding creative achievement in the music industry. This special Technical Grammy is therefore especially welcome as an acknowledgement of SSL’s creative use of technology to aid better music production.”
Since the company’s founding in 1969, SSL has pioneered advances in console technology with the relentless goal of providing intelligent and efficient means to assist the audio production process. In the late 70’s SSL introduced its SL 4000 console, which combined the ergonomics of in-line design, with integrated computer automation and Total Recall. The 1990’s saw SSL introduce digital processing technology, with the launch of a range of revolutionary products that incorporated totally automated control surfaces offering instant recall and complete reset. Mid-way through the 1990’s SSL launched its next generation ‘SuperAnalogue’ console, the SL 9000. This introduced a new design of audio circuitry providing new levels of audio quality for music production.
Today, SSL’s XL 9000 K Series console provides leading international studios with a SuperAnalogue console for the surround audio formats of the future. Similarly, the C200 console provides a digital console for 5.1 surround production at 96KHz with complete automation and reset of all functions.
