Solid State Logic has announced the BiG SiX desktop mixing console.

Based on the SSL SiX desktop mixer and incorporating feedback from artists, producers and engineers, BiG SiX is a 16-channel studio grade mixing console combining features and technologies from large-format SSL consoles with full USB integration, additional processing and advanced routing capabilities.

Solid State Logic BiG SiX BiG SiX is aimed at artists and musicians working in a hybrid recording and mixing environment. The console’s SuperAnalogue design delivers the punch, clarity and ultra-low distortion of the company’s 9000 Series consoles, along with a new 16-channel AD/DA USB interface. Also included is an ‘Essential’ version of the SSL G-Comp Bus Compressor, now with the ‘auto’ release feature, channel dynamics processing and a three-band EQ based on the SSL 4000E console.

The comprehensive monitoring section features full source matrix feeding two independent headphone outputs, along with 18-channel analogue summing at mixdown.

In addition to 16 channels of high performance 96kHz, 24-bit USB conversion that can be routed to external inputs, stereo cues and pre/post fader options, BiG SiX also features fully balanced insert points on all SuperAnalogue inputs, full-sized 100mm SSL console grade faders, Mix Bus Inject for cascading additional SiX and BiG SiX, and dual independent headphone outputs. As well as offering four SuperAnalogue mic/line/Hi-z inputs with polarity switch, the four stereo inputs can be individually switched to dual mono.

‘SiX introduced SSL console-grade processing and workflow to a wider range of users and BiG SiX – with its enhanced feature set and full USB interface integration – takes this a stage further, providing all of the essential tools of a hybrid studio,’ says Solid State Logic MD, Nigel Beaumont. ‘BiG SiX sets a new benchmark in desktop mixer performance and we can’t wait to see how users enhance their productions with it.’
