SSL have been in touch to tell us that the Matrix mixing console is now shipping. An SSL spokesperson told us, â€œAll of our hard work over the last 2 years of conceiving and designing our â€˜new babyâ€™ has reached fruition and the first customers are now receiving their units. Dealers around the world are starting to show their demo systems to engineers, producers, and musicians who have been searching for the product that gives their studio a new heart.â€�
SSL will be supporting US dealers with a series of Matrix events through the month of July. Product specialists will be visiting local pro-audio stores (listed on the SSL website) with a full demo system of Matrix and SSLâ€™s other analogue and digital products.
Matrix is composed of five main elements:
- 16 Channel Console with Dual Summing Inputs, Aux Sends and additional returnsâ€¦ providing more than 40 summed inputs to Mix output.
- 16+1 Fader, 4 Layer DAW Controller using Ethernet connection. This provides single cable, high speed workstation control for most popular DAWs including Pro Tools, Logic, Live and Reason.
- Integrated, recallable, software controlled 32x16x16 analogue routing matrix. Eliminates the need for external patchbays, bringing outboard analogue processing into DAW workflow.
