As of NAMM 2019, Solid State Logic has released its new SSL Live L350 and L550 consoles, with the latter becoming the flagship of its console range.
The L350 and L550 have replaced the L300 and L500 Plus in the current SSL Live console range and are showfile compatible with all other SSL Live consoles. The L550 features 288 processing paths, 36 Matrix outputs and 48 VCAs, assignable to any of the 36 + 2 faders on the control surface. Meanwhile, the L350 provides 216 processing paths, also 36 Matrix outputs and 36 VCAs in a 24 + 2 fader frame.
Both consoles can be augmented with USB Remote Fader Tiles or connected to remotely from another console; it is best to connect them to a laptop running SOLSA remote control software or a tablet running the TaCo control app for the most flexible work surface.
All existing SSL MADI and Net I/O Dante stage boxes can be deployed with them, and upgrade kits are also available to existing L300 and L500 Plus owners who want to upgrade their consoles.
Also developed was a new version of software that will be available to support all new hardware, along with accelerated Channel View screen responsiveness, expanded remote control options, improvement to the Automix effect and a collection of I/O setup and workflow features.
