Inspired by 40 years of legendary large-format SSL consoles, the Solid State Logic SiX is a 6-channel SuperAnalogue desktop mini mixer offering SSL's high-end sonic signature, powerful analog processing, and versatile configurability in a frame that's equally at home stationed in a studio or living life on the road. It features two mono input channels—each containing a console-grade SuperAnalogue microphone preamp with phantom power, a high-pass filter, and up to 72 dB of gain, plus a line / Hi-Z 1/4" input—and two stereo input channels. The mono channels boast single-knob compressors, 2-band EQ, and balanced insert points for flexible onboard and outboard processing, and all channels are outfitted with smooth 100mm faders.
Fully equipped to function as the hub for your recording session operations, the SiX provides a 3-pin XLR talkback mic input with selectable phantom power and LMC (SSL's heralded Listen Mic Compressor), 45 dB of gain, and adjustable output level. Separate talk buttons enable the talkback signal to be sent to either or both of the two cue buses, which can be sourced from the channel cue sends or external inputs. Connect the rear-panel 1/4" foldback outputs to your headphone amps, and plug in control room headphones to the top-panel headphone jack. After all recording is done, this desktop console grants 12-input summing at mixdown. With a G-Series stereo bus compressor on the main mix bus, a pre-fader mix insert, and an alternate B bus (great for parallel mix compression), the SiX is highly capable of handling in-demand mixing styles. Also, its comprehensive control room section accommodates two sets of speakers, source selection, and easy access to mono, dim, and mute functions.
