Duality has firmly established itself as the best music console money can buy and the industry standard for professional audio production. Just like previous generations of classic SSL consoles, Duality achieves its success by enabling engineers and producers to work faster and deliver better results. Its innovative hybrid approach, combining analogue signal path/processing with advanced DAW control within a single hardware surface, has found many fans. Duality has a diverse user base that includes many of the world’s most prestigious commercial recording facilities, on-air broadcast production studios, educational establishments, film & TV score specialists and a growing group of notable private owners.

“It is not easy making the best even better,? states Piers Plaskitt, CEO of SSL Inc. “This new edition of Duality responds to customer feedback by providing a collection of new features and refinements to the core feature set.?

At the center of improvements to the way Duality controls and communicates with DAW applications is the introduction of Ethernet connection between the console and DAW host computer. This single cable approach simplifies installation. The existing MIDI ports on the console are retained and can be utilized for connection of other MIDI equipment, effectively making Duality a MIDI Interface. There is new dual layer DAW control, enabling Duality to control two DAW’s simultaneously with seamless switching of hardware surface controls between manipulations of each DAW layer. The Duality Logictivity Browser has also been refreshed with new features, a streamlined user interface and new visual appearance. The Solo/Cut tiles across all of the consoles channel strips have been replaced with a new set of LCD screens providing more space for a greater level of information and improved viewing angles.

The analogue side of Duality receives 25 individual feature additions, with a few key areas of focus. The Talkback system sees the addition of an Autocue system that provides options to set how the Talkback & Listen switches and Red Light Mode physically operate or respond to Play or Record transport commands. The SSL Automation system has been significantly enhanced with the addition of an Offline Trim facility, selection of Automation Update Status at the head of the mix and the addition of automation for all Cue, FX and EQ insert switches. The Monitor Volume control is also updated with a new Calibration facility, a new ‘fine’ mode that increments in 0.4dB steps and the ability to display in three different modes: FILM (off-95db), Music (1-11) or Gain (off-0db). The TotalRecall™ system also receives an upgrade with the addition of an Autoscan feature that significantly speeds up Recall by conducting a sequential scan of the channels only stopping at those which require attention.

Duality SE is available now. Duality SE (software) is available as an upgrade option to existing Duality customers for $1750.
