Oxford, UK (March 21, 2019)—Solid State Logic has launched SiX, the latest in a new line of studio products that began with Fusion, which debuted last fall at AES.
Described as “a condensed professional console for use in the studio, post-production, on stage and for podcasting,” SiX packs some big desk features into a package small enough to fit into a backpack.
It offers two recording channels with SuperAnalogue mic preamps, a one-knob version of the classic SSL Channel Compressor, a new two-band Channel EQ, inserts and 100mm faders.
There is a two-knob version of the SSL’s G-Series Bus Compressor on the main mix bus and the company’s Listen Mic Compressor on the Talkback. In mixdown mode, the unit can alsoserve as a 12-channel summing system.
Niall Feldman, SSL director of new products, noted, “The big challenge then was how to deliver those values and features in a compact product. Working with a great team and focusing on audio quality, workflow and flexibility, the resultant SiX mixer is one our proudest achievements”.
“SiX is everything an SSL console should be, but at a price point that makes the SSL audio pedigree more accessible,” opined James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix. “When Fusion launched last year, we hinted it was the start of a new line of studio offerings and SiX is step two of that commitment.”
SSL SiX is available for $1,499.
