Create an SSL summing mixer with the stunning SuperAnalogue sound of the big SSL consoles for a fraction of the cost.
Solid State Logic's XLogic X-Rack gives project studio owners the ability to do what was once a dream: build an affordable SSL console with the sonic capabilities of their large format consoles — with the same SuperAnalogue circuitry found in the AWS 900+, Duality, K, and J series recording desks.
The Solid State Logic XLogic X-Rack 4-Channel Input Module is the perfect alternative to their 8-input module. It provides 4 inputs each with features suited to the tracking process or for combining line level sources into a final mix. Each input features pan and level controls, solo, insert connection, and routing to either the Record or Main Stereo Bus.
The XRack Line Return module contains four separate input amplifiers, each equipped with individual gain and pan controls, as well as Insert, Solo, and Record/Mix bus switches.
The level control allows the gain of each input to be varied from —inf to +10dB with an indent at unity gain. A signal-present indicator measures the signal level immediately prior to the Level control. It will light green for signals above the lower threshold of -60dBu, amber for signals between +4eBu and +24dBu, and lights red for signals above +24dBu.
Signals applied to the input of the module will be permanently available in the Insert Send; the Insert Return can be selected in place of the Line Input by pressing the INS switch. The insert return can also be used to provide an alternative input to these input amplifiers.
Each input can be individually routed to either the Mix Bus (REC switch released) or the Record Bus (REC switch pressed). The Solo switch feeds signal, post Level, and Pan to the X-Rack Solo Bus. The Pan control will pan between Left and Right channel of the selected bus. Each of the three busses feed the X-Rack Master Module (see #182055), located either in the same X-Rack or remotely if multiple X-Rack units have been linked by the Mix Bus Link connector.
With X-Rack you can create an SSL summing mixer with an ultra-pure analogue mix buss, using two different line input modules to achieve high channel counts or combine additional sources during mixdown to the legendary Stereo Bus Compressor. X-Rack delivers the very highest quality analogue recording and summing path and is the perfect configurable solution for studio or live applications.
The X-Rack chassis is a 4U 19" rack housing with a premium grade power supply, MIDI IN/OUT connections and a Mix Bus Link port that enables two X-Racks to be cascaded. The chassis also houses the Total Recall™ system with onboard capacity to store 32 system snapshots (the snapshots can also be stored as MIDI SysEX).
Please note: The XR623 X-Rack Line Return module operates only in conjunction with the XR622 X-Rack Master module.
If you thought that the hit-making SSL sound was out of your reach, think again. Build your SSL SuperAnalogue console a step at a time.
