Duality wins TEC Award

NEW YORK, NY - Solid State Logic, the world’s leading manufacturer of professional digital and analogue consoles and provider of creative tools for music, broadcast and post production professionals, recently received the Mix Magazine TEC Award for Large Format Console Technology with the Duality Console and for the XLogic Alpha Channel in the Mic Preamplifier Technology category. The awards were presented to SSL at the 23rd annual TEC Awards ceremony during the recent AES Convention in New York City.

“SSL has a long track record of providing high-end creative tools for the audio professional,” says Antony David, Managing Director for SSL. “We would like to thank the industry for honoring us with these two awards.”

Chris Jenkins, Director of Commercial Applications and co-designer of the Duality console, commented, “We’re thrilled to receive the TEC Award for Duality. The success of this console exemplifies SSL’s commitment to creating a product that successfully bridges the gap between the Digital Audio Workstation and the professional recording studio console.”

Since its launch in October 2006, Duality, a large format analogue console with integrated workstation control, has enjoyed overwhelming success. With over 40 consoles sold, Duality is the fastest selling large format console in SSL history. The combination of the highest quality SuperAnalogue™ signal path and processing with integrated DAW control, analogue 5.1 surround panning on every channel, constant visual feedback via TFT displays and the convenience of multi-operator Total Recall™ is proving to be an attractive formula. The console is extremely versatile and its ability to handle Music Production, Live Broadcast and Post is proving to be a strong commercial proposition for facilities with a diverse workload.

Fadi Hayek, SSL’s National Sales Manager for Workstation Partner Products, said, “We’re extremely happy to have won a TEC Award for the Alpha Channel. When we first released the Alpha Channel, we knew this product would have great impact on the industry by delivering the superior sonic fidelity and processing power of an SSL analogue channel strip into the smaller studio environment. With our user base expanding, the Alpha Channel is proving to be a success among many creative artists and engineers on all levels of the industry.”

With the combination of a studio class mic preamp, filter, EQ and limiting, the XLogic Alpha Channel is a classic analogue channel strip designed to provide the perfect front end to a digital audio workstation. With all the features needed to record great vocal or instrument tracks every time, the Alpha Channel offers a recording solution based on SSL’s years of experience in designing the world’s leading analogue recording consoles.

Founded in 1985, the Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards is the foremost program recognizing the achievements of audio professionals. Presented annually by the Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio, the TEC Awards honor the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, films, TV shows and live performances.

TEC Awards nominations are made by a panel of industry professionals and voted upon by the subscribers of Mix magazine. The awards are presented at a ceremony held each autumn during the annual convention of the Audio Engineering Society.
