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 could find a home with radio production studios looking for high-quality audio production.
SiX offers two recording channels with SSL’s SuperAnalogue mic preamps, a one-knob version of the classic SSL Channel Compressor, a new two-band Channel EQ, inserts and 100 mm 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 also serve 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, the company that owns SSL. “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.”
