SSL moves tu Hall 8 at Prolight + Sound Frankfurt 2014

Solid State Logic launched of ‘Live,’ the first SSL console for live sound production at Musikmesse/Prolight + Sound 2013. The Live console was also highlighted at Solid State Logic's stand at Winter NAMM 2014, and at the company's ISE debut in February 2014. At Prolight + Sound 2014 SSL exhibits at Hall 8L80 and the 'Live' console will be featured at five demo stations throughout the show. The ‘Live’ brings SSL’s approach to audio quality and console ergonomics to sound for the stage.
“So many people have been asking us to make a console for live for so long and the time has come,” states Antony David, Managing Director at SSL. “It has been a couple of years in the making because we like to get things right at SSL and we are very confident that we have created a console engineers will fall in love with. It is very exciting to be entering a completely new area of the industry, with a new technology platform and a fresh approach to how a live console should sound and how to give engineers a control surface that helps them deliver exceptional performances. We are really looking forward to how the professional live sound community reacts.”
Based on SSL’sTempest processing platform, Live has plenty of power and it is deployed in a uniquely versatile way. The headline numbers are 976 inputs & outputs and 192 full processing audio ‘paths’ at 96kHz. How those ‘paths’ are configured is flexible with power allocated to Channels, Auxes, Stem Groups and Masters configured to suit the needs of each show. All processing is built into the console surface and it has a collection of I/O connectivity built into the frame. A full range of Stagebox I/O connects to the console via MADI with the potential for larger systems to make use of SSL’s own Blacklight technology that carries up to 256 channels of bi-directional audio and control via a single fibre connection.
Live's control surface combines multiple tablet style multi-gesture touch screens with hardware ergonomics, visual feedback and a collection of new features. It enables engineers to work exactly how they work today, whether they prefer new touch screen or classic hardware technology, or to combine them both.
Impeccable audio quality is a primary design feature right the way through from studio grade SuperAnalogue microphone preamps, 24bit/96kHz A/D D/A conversion, to 64bit internal processing and 96khz operation throughout. Live features a collection of 30 new effects and audio analysis tools, which take SSL’s acclaimed studio grade processing and re-craft it for live.

“It may be our first live console, but it carries over 35 years of SSL design DNA that has delivered many of the most loved consoles in music”
