Solid State Logic has launched SiX – The Ultimate Desktop Mixer.

SiX is a professional console for use in the studio, in post-production, on stage, and for podcasting. It offers two recording channels with SuperAnalogueTM mic pres, an essential one knob version of the classic SSL Channel Compressor, a new two-band Channel EQ, inserts and 100mm faders. There is a two-knob version of the legendary G-Series Bus Compressor on the main mix bus and the Listen Mic Compressor 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,” commented 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 of our proudest achievements”.

“SiX is everything an SSL console should be, but at a price point that makes the SSL audio pedigree more accessible” said James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix. “When Fusion launched last year, we hinted that it was the start of a new line of studio offerings and SiX is step two of that commitment.”
