Solid

State
Logic, the manufacturer of
professional digital and analogue consoles and provider of creative tools for
music, broadcast and post production professionals, recently received the Mix
Magazine TEC Award for
Large Format Console Technology with the Duality
Console and for the XLogic Alpha Channel in the Mic Preamplifier
Technology category.
The awards were
presented to SSL at the 23rd annual TEC Awards ceremony during the recent AES
Convention in

New York City.

“SSL has a
long track record of providing high-end creative tools for the audio
professional,” says Antony David, Managing Director for SSL. “We would like to
thank the industry for honoring us with these two awards.”

Chris Jenkins,
Director of Commercial Applications and co-designer of the Duality console, commented,
“We’re thrilled to receive the TEC Award for Duality. The success of this
console exemplifies SSL’s commitment to creating a product that successfully
bridges the gap between the Digital Audio Workstation and the professional
recording studio console.”

Since its
launch in October 2006, Duality, a large format analogue console with
integrated workstation control, has enjoyed overwhelming success. With over 40
consoles sold, Duality is the fastest selling large format console in SSL
history. The combination of the highest quality SuperAnalogue™ signal path and
processing with integrated DAW control, analogue 5.1 surround panning on every
channel, constant visual feedback via TFT displays and the convenience of multi-operator
Total Recall™ is proving to be an attractive formula. The console is extremely
versatile and its ability to handle Music Production, Live Broadcast and Post
is proving to be a strong commercial proposition for facilities with a diverse
workload.

Fadi
Hayek, SSL’s National Sales Manager for Workstation Partner Products, said,
“We’re extremely happy to have won a TEC Award for the Alpha Channel. When we
first released the Alpha Channel, we knew this product would have great impact
on the industry by delivering the superior sonic fidelity and processing power
of an SSL analogue channel strip into the smaller studio environment. With our
user base expanding, the Alpha Channel is proving to be a success among many
creative artists and engineers on all levels of the industry.”

With the
combination of a studio class mic preamp, filter, EQ and limiting, the XLogic
Alpha Channel is a classic analogue channel strip designed to provide the
perfect front end to a digital audio workstation. With all the features needed
to record great vocal or instrument tracks every time, the Alpha Channel offers
a recording solution based on SSL’s years of experience in designing the
world’s leading analogue recording consoles.
