London, UK (July 21, 2010)–UK musician and producer Eddie Stevens recently purchased a Solid State Logic XLogic Alpha-Link interface.
After discovering the SSL ‘sound’ while mixing Moloko’s album Statues on a J-Series console some years ago, Stevens recently decided to purchase the SSL interface. “It was time to update my converters,” he says. “So I did quite a bit of research and ended up choosing the SSL XLogic Alpha-Link.”
Stevens has worked with many high profile acts, including several years with Freak Power and Norman Cook. After a long stint with Moloko, Stevens continues to work with singer Roisin Murphy and is also recording and playing live with Zero7.
“I sometimes use it as a mobile system,” he reveals. “It’s so I can retain my native Logic arrangements and plug-ins and take a mix to a studio and have 24 outputs without having to bounce down or deal with any compatibility issues.”
But as well as providing all of his interfacing requirements, the sound of the XLogic Alpha-Link has won him over. “Few people doubt that converters make a big difference to sound,” he notes. “But how many people actually do the relevant comparisons? I did as much research as I could with full multitrack recordings that give you the complete picture, and as a result I’m very happy with my purchase – it’s made a significant difference to my sound.”
