SSL launches ‘Origin’ – new analogue studio console

Posted on: Wednesday 23rd of October 2019

As the latest in a long heritage of SSL studio mixing consoles, ORIGIN has traditional analogue studio workflow at its heart whilst providing several useful features to integrate with a modern DAW driven studio. The traditional design looks back to the ‘origin’ of in-line consoles for signal flow inspiration: a purely analogue, inline, dual channel design, with 16 buses, E Series EQ and the classic Bus Compressor.

The new PureDrive mic pre inherits the sonic signature of previous SSL Mic Pre designs, and can also switch character to a warm, harmonically rich and driven tone that varies with mic pre gain. The new mix bus and mix amp architecture delivers a low noise floor along with a headroom for a summing bus, retaining the classic SSL sound while bringing the breadth and space to mixes that engineers and producers love from analogue summing. Balanced insert points per channel path, dedicated channel direct outputs, stem-ready 0dB fader bypass switches, and a new configurable centre section, make it an ideal way to add console workflow to a modern production studio.

“This really is the culmination of everything we have put into analogue console design over the past four decades” comments Niall Feldman, SSL Director of New Products. “ORIGIN is the studio console we would have created then, for the way we work today – it is quite simply a new analogue classic.”

“Music production is core to our origin at Solid State Logic” adds Nigel Beaumont, SSL Managing Director, “and it’s important we utilize this unique heritage to continue defining new products that are more accessible to the growing studio market. It allows us to deliver next generation consoles such as ORIGIN, with the right features, at the right price point, and of course, with that unmistakable SSL sound.”
