We were looking for the perfect desk for our main recording studio for a while. Then we spotted the SSL Origin Mixing Console…
Solid State Logic (SSL) has held a top-spot in console design and manufacture for decades.
SSL mixing desks are used by too many artists, engineers, producers and world-class studios to mention…
SSL were good enough to give us and our students a virtual tour of their SSL Origin Mixing Console this week. ORIGIN has traditional analogue studio workflow at its heart whilst providing the perfect partner for a modern DAW-driven ‘hybrid’ production studio. Its classic design looks back to the origin of in-line consoles for signal flow inspiration. The console incorporates cutting-edge analogue developments to deliver a unique sonic signature that’s unmistakably SSL.
The Origin is purely analogue inline design, with 16 buses, E-Series EQ and the classic Bus Compressor. The new PureDrive™ mic pre inherits the clarity and purity of previous SSL Mic Pre designs, switching character to a warm, harmonically-rich and driven tone that varies with mic pre gain.
We were so impressed, they we placed an order for an Origin. This will be delivered and installed over the next months.
This world-class console will be available to everyone who uses the studio at our HQ, including our students.
