Solid State Logic have just announced SiX - The Ultimate Desktop Mixer. SiX is a classic SSL console, shrunken down and simplified to become a powerful desktop mixer. With a carefully considered feature set, SiX carries the DNA of 40 years of true expertise in creative studio workflow. It is powerful, intuitive, inspired and rewarding.
SSL SiX Features:
- Two SSL SuperAnalogue mic pres
- A one-knob version of the SSL channel compressor
- Two-band channel EQ
- Listen Mic compressor on the talkback (often used for creative effect)
- G Series Bus Compressor on the main mix bus
SSL SiX is a condensed professional console for use in the studio, in post-production, on stage, and for podcasting. SiX offers classic SSL analog console sound and an impressive set of features in a format that is small enough to stick in a bag and go.
SiX may be small but it offers the true SSL console sound; two recording channels with SuperAnalogueTM mic pres, two band EQ, an essential 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 legendary G-Series Bus Compressor on the main mix bus and the unique Listen Mic Compressor on the Talkback. In mixdown mode it is a very capable twelve channel summing system that offers analogue detail, depth and width to your mixes.
SiX also borrows a multitude of routing options from SSL's larger consoles – two stereo cue buses so you can make independent artist mixes, main and alternate monitor outs (with a source matrix), and mono check, dim, and cut. The fader channels also have real PFL (pre-fade listen), and the Mute button routes to Bus B – which can also be a record send for your DAW, or can get routed into the monitor matrix.
