Solid State Logic has updated its AWS 900 console. Maintaining the same 24-fader footprint, the new AWS is now available in 24-input (AWS 924) and 48-input (AWS 948) variants. New features include Dual Path Channels with stereo EQ and Insert, 8-fader bay Digital Scribble Strips and “A-FADA” (Analogue Fader Accesses DAW Automation) automation where motorized analog faders follow DAW automation data.
The increase from 24 to 48 inputs on the AWS 948 (pictured) is achieved via the introduction of a Dual Path Channel Strip design where each channel has a single mic pre and two line-level inputs, a new stereo EQ and stereo insert. This new channel enables three different operating modes: Stereo Mix, In-Line Mix and In-Line Tracking. The A-FADA mode reportedly enables the analog motorized faders to follow continuous DAW automation data.
