Solid State Logic SSL SiX
The Solid State Logic SSL SiX might look like a compact desktop mixer. But look closer and you’ll find a feature-set driven by a desire for total flexibility. Listen to the sound of the SiX and experience the impeccable sonic performance seen in every SSL console. Powerful, intuitive, inspired, and rewarding.
The SSL SiX is a condensed yet professional console that’s perfect for use in the studio, post-production, on-stage, and for podcasting. It also offers big console sound as well as an impressive set of utility features. All in a format that’s small enough to stick in a bag and go wherever you need it.
Featuring two recording channels with SuperAnalogueTM mic pres; two band EQ; one knob version of the classic SSL Channel Compressor; two-band Channel EQ; inserts and 100mm faders. There’s also a two-knob version of the legendary G-Series Bus Compressor on the main mix bus. As well as a unique Listen Mic Compressor on the Talkback. In mixdown mode, the SSL SiX is an extremely capable 12 Channel summing system offering analogue detail, depth, and width to your mixers.
What’s more, the SiX is an SSL SuperAnalogueTM design. So you’ll enjoy the sonic signature of a large-format SSL console on your desktop or in your backpack. While its signal path is fully balanced from front to back on everything besides the headphone output. Delivering pristine, detailed audio with wide dynamic range, ultra-low noise, distortion, and superb imaging.
The two mono channels on SiX with SSL SuperAnalogue Mic Pres are transparent, fast and extremely wide gain range. Allowing you up to 66dB of gain compared to the 40 or 50dB you’d typically find on desktop mixers. They also have phantom power, 75Hz high pass filter, and an independent line input which allows you to switch to an instrument-level input with high impedance.
On top of that, the SSL SiX also has two stereo input channels with -10/+20 dB trim for line sources. Perfect for things such as synthesizers, drum machines, output from soundcards etc. These have their own balance controls and 100mm faders, and if only the left channel is connected; the channel with automatically switch to mono, and pan centre!
The SSL SiX has a collection of professional routing and monitoring features seen in large-format consoles. Including two Stereo Cue buses (with level and pan controls) for individual artist foldback mixes. The Master Section has main and alternate monitor outputs with a proper monitor source matrix. As well as mono check, dim and cut. Furthermore, the fader channels all have PFL and a Mute button, routing the muted signal to Bus B. Which can then be used as a convenient DAW record send as well as the ability to be routed to the monitor matrix.
There’s a talkback mic input with phantom power as well as SSL’s unique crunchy Listen Mic Compressor. Also serving as a unique processing tool that delivers the classic 1980s drum sound.
