SSL Matrix 2 16-Channel Mixing Console

Solid State Logic SuperAnalogue 16 channel, 40 input mixing console with inbuilt signal router and multi-layer digital workstation control
MFR# 729940X2

Product Description

The SSL Matrix 2 δelta combines the superior sound quality of analog summing with the flexible workflow of digital control surfaces. With 16 line-level inputs, an intuitive Insert Router, and a 40-input summing mixer, the Matrix 2 is the perfect bridge between the analog and digital domains.

ANALOG MIXING

The Matrix 2 offers total tactile control over your mix with 32 channel inputs and 16 of SSL’s latest SuperAnalogue channel strips. Each channel is equipped with two line-level inputs and a dedicated channel output via DB25 cables. Each channel also features one stereo and four mono aux sends for flexible signal routing. Dial in the perfect effects levels using four stereo returns. Two stereo mix busses with dedicated inserts offer rich analog summing for 40 total inputs.

FLEXIBLE OUTPUTS

The newly-designed Insert Router is like having a 32x16x16 digital patch bay built right into your console. Connect up to 16 hardware devices and route signals to different channels as needed. Speed up your workflow with fully recallable signal chains.

Monitor mixes in stereo or 5.1 surround sound using two monitor sets of monitor outputs for quickly switching between monitors. Quickly reference tracks on smartphones or laptops using the 3.5mm stereo front panel monitor input. Create a separate monitor mix for performers using the built-in Artist Monitor section.

DIGITAL CONTROL

Matrix 2 is more than just an analog summing mixer in the shape of an SSL console—it also offers full control over Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase/Nuendo, Ableton Live and Studio One. Using a simple ethernet connection, you can control plug-in parameters using analog faders and pots.

Program advanced console automation using Matrix 2’s 16 channel faders, directly from your DAW using the δ-Ctrl Single Fader Plug-in. And with Total Recall capability, you can recreate any mix with the click of a button.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
