SSL Goes BiG With New USB Interface Mixer

Posted on: Friday 31st of December 2021

SSL Big Six mixerSolid State Logic has rolled out its new desktop mixing console, BiG SiX. Based on the Solid State Logic SiX desktop mixer it movies the technology into the hybrid production arena, offering a 16-channel mixing console that combines features and technologies from large-format SSL consoles with full USB integration, additional processing and routing capabilities.

The console’s SuperAnalogue design borrows heavily from the company’s 9000 consoles, while the BiG SiX adds a new AD/DA USB interface. Also included is an ‘Essential Version’ of the SSL G-Comp Bus Compressor, with ‘Auto’ release feature, channel dynamics processing and a three-band EQ based on the SSL 4000E console. There’s also a “comprehensive” monitoring section featuring full source matrix feeding two independent headphone outputs, along with 18-channel analogue summing at mixdown.

“SiX introduced SSL console-grade processing and workflow to a wider range of users, and BiG SiX, with its enhanced feature set and full USB interface integration takes this a stage further, providing all of the essential tools of a hybrid studio. BiG SiX sets a new benchmark in desktop mixer performance and we can’t wait to see how users enhance their productions with it.” comments Nigel Beaumont, Managing Director of Solid State Logic.

In addition to 16 channels of 96kHz/24-bit USB conversion, which the user can reroute to External Inputs, Stereo Cues and Pre/Post Fader options, BiG SiX also features fully balanced insert points on all SuperAnalogue inputs, full size 100 mm SSL console grade faders, Mix Bus Inject for cascading additional SiX and BiG SiX, dual independent headphone outputs and much more. As well as offering four SuperAnalogue Mic/Line/Hi-z inputs with polarity switch, the four Stereo Inputs can be individually switched to dual mono, adding further recording flexibility.

SSL BiG SiX is available at Solid State Logic‘s network of authorized dealers and priced at £1,999, $2,999 and €2,499.00 (excluding VAT).
