SSL wins three TEC awards for outstanding technical achievement

We are proud to announce that we won three of the coveted Technical Excellence and Creativity (TEC) Awards in the Outstanding Technical Achievement Category. At the 29th Annual TEC Awards event held during the 2014 NAMM Show, SSL’s Live console was presented with the Sound Reinforcement Console Technology award, while the company’s Duality Pro-Station won for Large Format Console Technology and its 500 Series Buss Compressor took home the Signal Processing Technology/Hardware award .

“We are thrilled to have garnered three awards for Outstanding Technical Achievement at this year’s TEC Awards ceremony,” says Piers Plaskitt, CEO SSL Inc. “We thank the TEC Awards committee for nominating us in three categories and we thank the industry at large for voting for SSL.”

Live is the first ever SSL console created to address the needs of the live sound industry. While Live breaks new technical ground, it carries all of the high-quality SSL DNA acquired from years of experience developing consoles for music, film, post production and broadcast.

Looking at how the world’s leading live engineers work, the Live presents a truly superb user interface that can conform to any engineering style, while presenting a powerful collection of new features set to meet tomorrow’s standards. As expected, the Live delivers impeccable sound quality.

Duality Pro-Station, a new version of the industry-leading SSL Duality large-format console, offers all of the benefits of SSL’s hybrid workflow, combining the sonic advantages of a classic SSL SuperAnalogue™ mixing console with integrated hands-on hardware control over the DAW environment. The new winged layout of the Pro-Station is designed to further serve producers and engineers who wish to conduct their DAW session editing/arrangement and audio mixing from a single central position.

The availability of SSL’s popular Stereo Buss Compressor in a module for the 500 format makes this essential audio production tool available to users of the popular API 500 format modular rack platform. Often imitated but never equaled, the centre section compressor from the 1980’s G-Series analogue console is an audio production legend. It is a simple unit with a simple purpose; it makes complete mixes sound bigger, with more power, punch and drive. It brings cohesion and strength to a mix without compromising clarity. To this day it remains a key element of the SSL sound and has been featured on countless classic recordings.
