SSL Certifies bespoke PC system for Soundscape

Following extensive testing, Solid State Logic can now announce their first Soundscape V6 approved PC system built by German specialist company XI-MACHINES. The high-spec computer is designed and specified to handle the most demanding of sessions and guarantees recording and playback of 128 simultaneous audio tracks. A dual 1 Terabyte RAID-array for storage sits alongside a 150GB 10,000 rpm project hard disk making sure that the system can take full advantage of Soundscape V6’s Hybrid Core engine. All of this technology sits inside a true studio machine; a 19” rackmount chassis with silent operation means that the computer does not need to be housed in a separate machine room.

Jim Motley, SSL’s Head of Workstation Partner Products Business, comments “We wanted to offer our customers a certified machine for new Soundscape systems. Knowing Soundscape’s reputation for reliability and rock-solid performance we wanted to ensure that users could combine it with a computer of the same granite-like build quality. We’ve known the guys behind XI-MACHINES and DAW PLUS for some time and with them both being music-industry veterans we knew that they understood what a power-user needs. This system certainly fulfils everything a serious audio professional could want.”

“As the need for complete audio-solutions is growing, we are very happy to announce our brand new Solid State Logic certified Audio-Workstation SSL-X2” added Patrick Strenge, Managing Director of XI-MACHINES. “As SSL Soundscape is regarded as one of the most stable audio-platforms in the industry developing a certified hardware system made absolute sense. It offers audio-professionals an ideal platform to simply concentrate on their creative output and not the technical side of things. In co-operation with Solid State Logic and audio expert DAW-PLUS, the XI-MACHINES development team has come up with a lightning fast silent audio-workstation that suits the needs of any audio-professional, be it in studios or on the road.”

Completing, testing, and installing the full turnkey systems is the DAW PLUS team. Leon Herbers, owner of DAW PLUS, added “Unlike other systems integrators who are just about price, we are only concerned with offering top service to our customers. Solid State Logic demands the best for their customers and we are delighted to work with SSL Soundscape“.

The SSL-X2 workstations are available directly from XI-MACHINES or as a turnkey solution with pre-installed SSL Software and Hardware by audio expert DAW-Plus.
