Solid State Logic launch new SiX mini-mixer

Posted on: Thursday 21st of March 2019

Solid State Logic announced the launch of SiX – “The Ultimate Desktop Mixer”. As a condensed professional console for use in the studio, in post-production, on stage, and for podcasting, SiX offers “big console sound and an impressive set of utility features in a format that is small enough to stick in a bag” according to SSL. SiX is clearly an extension of the product-design philosophy behind their Fusion rack-mount processor, reviewed this month in Resolution.

Two recording channels with SuperAnalogue mic pres, an essential one-knob version of the SSL Channel Compressor, a new two-band Channel EQ, inserts and 100mm faders. There is a two-knob version of the G-Series Bus Compressor on the main mix bus and the unique Listen Mic Compressor (LMC) on the Talkback. In mixdown mode it is a very capable twelve channel summing system that offers analogue detail, depth and width to your mixes.

“With over 30 years’ involvement in the design of SSL consoles, when developing the concept of SiX, I really thought hard on what our users appreciate about our larger consoles; what helps their workflow and delivers quality results for them” comments Niall Feldman, SSL Director of New Products. “The big challenge then was how to deliver those values and features in a compact product. Working with a great team and focussing 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” comments James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix. “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.”

SSL SiX is available now priced: £999 +VAT, $1499+Tax, €1199 +Tax
