Solid State Logic (SSL) has introduced the L100 Live console, which offers a physically smaller footprint than other members of the Live series while still including the SSL Tempest Audio Engine, showfile compatibility across the range, and all of the same I/O options, including SSL SuperAnalogue stage boxes (over MADI or Dante), local analog and digital I/O, and Blacklight.
The L100 has 12 + 2 fader configuration frame, while retaining the same access layer/bank switching and Super-Q technology. Users who require more faders can expand the L100 with the addition of SSL’s new Remote Tile, and more screen space can be added via an external touchscreen and the addition of tablet control.
The 17-inch multi-gesture touchscreen gives access to all functions, and combines with Quick Controls in the central fader tile to provide immediate hands-on hardware control. The integrated tablet device stand combines with newly released version of SSL’s TaCo tablet control application functionality to offer an additional control interface for channel or effects rack processing. The Master Tile also provides mute group, solo/talkback, assignable keys, and automation controls.
Up to 96 fully-processed paths are available, and flexible architecture means configurations of up to 64 input channels, 36 aux sends, 12 stem groups, 12 VCAs, and four masters. An additional 4 x 32 input, 12-output matrix is always available.
Every L100 path provides a range of channel processing configurable in any order, including EQ, dynamics, tube emulation, delay, all-pass filter, and two insert points. The console’s internal FX rack provides everything else, with a large suite of SSL FX, for up to 24 instances.
The SSL SOLSA PC app can be used for online control and offline editing and the SSL Live TaCo (Tablet Control) mix app provides wireless tablet control of SSL Live consoles from iPad and Android devices.
SSL managing director Antony David states, “The launch of the L100 will deliver the incredible SSL Live audio performance and technology to a whole new range of users that previously might not have been able to specify SSL Live. Solid State Logic does not compromise its sonic integrity and build-values for anyone, so to be able to offer L100 at a very competitive price point is fantastic news.
The new L100 Live is available now.
