The Solid State Logic XL-Desk is a new take on vintage analog studio consoles, which simplifies workflow and is incredibly easy to use. If you’ve always wanted to use an analog console in a DAW based studio, but didn’t feel the need for integrated control or level automation, Solid State Logic has built the perfect console for you.
The SSL XL-Desk returns consoles to their former non-automated glory of yesteryear, but comes packed some of the best audio features of today. The console features 20 channel strips and four stereo channels, with the first eight being compromised of SSL’s signature Variable Harmonic Drive (VHD) mic pres. Using a 100% analog signal path, these channels can offer a wide range of sounds from glowing warmth to grungy distortion.
When it comes to creating unique sounds, the Solid State Logic XL-Desk goes one step beyond by incorporating 500 Series technology in a different way. By creating an in-console 18-slot 500 Series rack (accepts both single and doublewide modules), Solid State Logic has made it extremely easier to bring new sonic characteristics to your sound. In addition, the 500 rack is built with a different power supply than the console, allowing it to be run completely separate from the rest of the desk.
One of the defining elements of any Solid State Logic desk is its delivery of clarity, punch and separation with every recording. Giving users the ability to create dynamic mixes with their signature Mix Bus, the XL Desk features four mix busses, which can all be summed into the console’s Master Bus, Mix A. The other three mix bus, Mix B, C and D, can be independently controlled of the main bus.
Another essential part of any studio experience is the monitoring system, and the XL Desk is packed with a beautiful SuperAnalogue monitoring section. With three sets of stereo connects, a sub connection, impressive bass management and in-studio mic monitoring, you’ll always be able to know exactly what sounds you are getting with the greatest of ease.
While many sound and mix engineers love having a fully-integrated system at their disposal, Solid State Logic’s XL Desk dumbs down the former for those who just want something simple. Based on the classic analog console, but packed with sonic innovations from Solid State Logic, this console truly is the best of both sides of the recording industry.
