SSL Launches AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System

Friday May 7, 2004. 10:16 PM, by OUNZ Audio Hardware > Solid State Logic
Audio Hardware : SSL Launches AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System - macmusicNAB 2004 - Solid State Logic announces a new recording and mixing system, the AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System. The system combines the dual benefits of SuperAnalogue processing and sophisticated digital control to provide a complete solution to the use of Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) in professional audio applications.

Solid State Logic mixing systems are the de facto standard in audio production, valued for their unrivalled audio quality and control ergonomics. SSL was the first company to integrate automation and machine control into the mixing console, and it pioneered surround mixing. The new AWS 900 delivers the same powerful integration benefits to DAW users, who face similar challenges with an array of equipment (Mic Amps, Effects, Controllers etc.) to produce professional results from a modern DAW.

AWS 900 Design Concepts

The AWS 900 is the only console that provides the dual benefits of a fully featured SuperAnalogue signal path, coupled with a comprehensive DAW controller. The product is a result of extensive user feedback and market studies.

Key features summary
• Combined SSL console and DAW controller
• Legendary SSL SuperAnalogue mic pre's and signal processing
• Full monitoring system up to 5.1 surround
• Direct control of DAW recording, editing and mixing functions
• Flexible signal routing


SuperAnalogue Console
The AWS 900 is a complete, compact SSL console, with all of the audio quality, robustness and advanced ergonomics that this implies. AWS 900 offers no-compromise audio performance, equivalent to SSL's celebrated XL 9000 K Series mixing console which is a feature of major studios the world over.

Signal routing, inputs/outputs, monitoring and signal processing are all permanently available on the console. Top quality motorised faders provide conventional audio level control as well as controlling the recording and replay levels in your DAW.

Console feature Summary
• Legendary SSL sound quality
• Identical SuperAnalogue technology to SSL's flagship XL 9000 K Series console
• Greater bandwidth than 192kHz recorders
• Ultra low-noise dual impedance mic amps
• Twin curve SSL E and G Series 4-band parametric equalisation
• Assignable SSL dynamics section with gate, expander and compressor/limiter
• G Series Stereo main mix buss compressor
• Flexible processing order
• Balanced circuitry throughout
• Oxygen-free cable throughout
• Metering on all channels and main outputs


DAW Controller
DAW's provide the power and convenience of recording and editing audio, but a PC/Mac is not the most intuitive way to access these controls. For most users, finding an integrated solution that answers all of their working needs is strongly desired. The AWS 900 achieves this to an extent and quality that has previously been unavailable.

Controller features summary
• Direct access to all major DAW mixing, editing and automation parameters
• Direct control of Plug-In settings
• Dedicated control CPU to maximise performance
• Integral colour TFT display with dedicated control keys
• User definable controls on every channel
• High quality motorised faders to write/replay level moves in your DAW
• Simple switching between console layer and DAW control layer
• Full remote control implementation
• Operation independent of platform – works with ProTools, Nuendo, Logic Audio, etc
