Sound console SSL Live is being showcased at ISE 2014 as Solid State Logic makes its first appearance at the show. The move coincides with the roll-out of a global resale partner network for Solid State Logic and its first commercial sales.
Antony David, managing director of SSL, said: “We are very excited to be exhibiting at ISE for the first time and are looking forward to meeting the unique partner and user community that attends the show.”
Live is a flexible digital audio console designed specifically to meet the demands of all aspects of live sound production. The company claims it is perfectly suited to touring or installation, FOH or monitors, to venues and arenas, houses of worship and concert halls.
Based on SSL’s new Tempest processing platform, Live has 976 inputs and outputs and 192 full processing audio paths at 96kHz. For these paths, power allocated to Channels, Auxes, Stem Groups and Masters is 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, which carries up to 256 channels of bi-directional audio and control via a single fibre connection.
The console offers studio grade SuperAnalogue mic preamps and 24bit/96kHz A/D D/A conversion, as well as 64-bit internal processing and 96kHz operation throughout. Live features a collection of 30 new Effects and audio analysis tools, with their own dedicated processing power. In addition, Live’s control surface features multiple tablet-style multi-gesture touch screens, with visual feedback.
