SSL Showcase Live Sound Console at ISE 2014


SSL signals long-term commitment to the installed systems sector by exhibiting at key EU show.

AMSTERDAMSolid State Logic, the world’s leading manufacturer of creative tools for audio professionals, is proud to announce that it will showcase the SSL ‘Live’ console at the 2014 ISE show (Stand 7.H18). Since its announcement at ProLight + Sound in 2013, the SSL Live console has rapidly become the audio console the industry is talking about. Coinciding with the roll out of a global resale partner network and the first commercial sales, SSL’s presence for the first time at ISE signals a strong long-term commitment to the installed systems sector.

“Industry reaction to the arrival of SSL in live sound has been extremely encouraging,” states Antony David, Managing Director at SSL. “Much of the initial attention has centered on the superb sound of the console and the excellent ergonomics it offers to engineers, but the console also delivers from a technical integration perspective. The combination of versatile inbuilt and remote connectivity, generous processing capability and extremely flexible console configuration and routing and powerful output matrix make Live the perfect product for installed environments. We are very excited to be exhibiting at ISE for the first time and looking forward to meeting the unique partner and user community that attend the show.”

About SSL Live
Live brings SSL’s unique approach to audio quality and console ergonomics to sound for live audio production. SSL has been at the leading edge of analogue and digital audio console innovation for over 35 years. Like so many multi award-winning, ground-breaking and much loved consoles for Music, Broadcast and Post production that SSL has created through the decades, Live brings something new and very special to the party.

Live is a flexible and extremely powerful digital audio console designed specifically to meet the demands of all aspects of live sound production. It is perfectly suited to touring or installation, FOH or monitors, to venues and arenas, houses of worship and concert halls, to anywhere where audio quality is important and engineers require power, complete flexibility and a user interface that puts them in control.

Live is all about power and control. Based on SSL’s new Tempest processing platform, Live has plenty of power and it is deployed in a uniquely versatile way. The headline numbers are impressive at the price with 976 inputs and outputs and 192 full processing audio ‘paths’ at 96kHz. How those ‘paths’ are utilised is extremely flexible with power allocated to Channels, Auxes, Stem Groups and Masters 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 that carries up to 256 channels of bi-directional audio and control via a single fibre connection.

Power really is nothing if it can’t be controlled and Live offers a truly excellent control surface. It combines multiple tablet style multi-gesture touch screens with elegant hardware ergonomics, excellent visual feedback and a collection of innovative new features. It enables engineers to work how they do today, whether they prefer new touch screen or classic hardware technology, or like to combine them both, and offers new and better ways of doing things that will make life less stressful and more creative.

Being an SSL, Live has legendary audio performance as standard. Impeccable audio quality is a primary design feature right the way through from studio grade SuperAnalogue™ mic preamps, 24bit/96kHz A/D D/A conversion, to 64bit internal processing and 96khz operation throughout. An obsession with quality also shines through an array of channel processing tools that bear the classic SSL tone but bring a completely new level of precision, flexibility and usability. Live features an impressive collection of 30 new Effects and audio analysis tools which take SSL’s acclaimed studio grade processing and re-craft it for live and they have their own dedicated processing power.

As has been the case so many times in the last few decades, SSL has taken a fresh look at the way professional engineers work and created an inspired console that builds upon the way things are done today and offers the potential for a new, exciting and more creative way to work tomorrow.
