Since its introduction just two years ago, the original AWS 900 has quickly established itself as a unique combination of a world-class analogue console and sophisticated DAW controller. Over 150 AWS 900 Analogue Workstation Systems have been sold. SSL tell us that the AWS 900+ is still the only console that provides the dual benefits of a fully featured SuperAnalogue signal path coupled with a comprehensive DAW controller.
AWS 900+ builds on the successful original formula by adding tighter integration with more popular DAW platforms, enhancements to the displays and meters, and a sleek â€˜platinumâ€™ styling.
Using the new control protocols, plug-ins and virtual instruments can now be controlled from the D-Pots and the faders, a hotly requested feature from many workstation users. An enhanced display allows up to 6 character labels for track/channel names and the console also now features workstation Master Fader support.
Niall Feldman, Director of Product Marketing had this to tell us, â€œThe original, hugely successful AWS 900 addressed the needs of those who wanted to work primarily with Pro Tools and also benefit from SSLâ€™s analogue sound and control surface ergonomics. We have had a lot of interest in the AWS 900 from users of a variety of other workstations. As a result of this interest, the AWS 900+ delivers tighter integration and greater control of all of the most popular workstations.â€�
