SSL SiX

High quality studio and live mixer

With SiX, Solid State Logic presents a small, exceptional mixer for studio and live applications that delivers the same popular quality of larger and well-known SSL consoles. On the one hand, the mixer provides a lot of connection possibilities like XLR-, jack-, D25-inputs, as well as mix bus-, main-, DB25- and foldback outputs - thus many application areas are covered, no matter if recording or gig. On the other hand it convinces with high-quality compressors - among others the G-Series Bus Comp, inspired by the SL4000G console - and the two Band Channel EQ with HF and LF bands. Phantom power, Hi-Z switch, trim, pan and insert points for external processing are also included. Two stereo channels, which can also be operated with 100mm faders, as well as a monitor and foldback master section are also included. The practical device is rounded off by a talkback input and built-in LEDs for both the compressors and the monitor sources.

Connectors for live and studio applications

Starting with the connectors, SiX offers two analog mono channels with XLR and jack sockets, two stereo ins via jack, external inputs, a talkback input and a headphone out, while the rear provides two D-Sub 25 connectors for send and return or I/O in addition to monitor outputs and main out - enough to quickly and easily realize various setups in live or studio use.

Signal path, effects and sends

Anyone who deals with professional studio equipment will quickly notice that SSL is one of the top brands in the audio industry and that the many years of experience in all devices comes to the fore, of course, with the compact SiX: The SuperAnalogue pre-amps amplify incoming signals just as reliably and clearly as those of the large consoles, while the built-in compressors and equalizers always sound outstanding and deliver optimum results at all times. And of course, if you want to loop in additional external effects, you can do the same!

Summary from Sound on Sound magazine April 2019

PROS

  • The most affordable SSL yet!
  • A genuine mini SSL in terms of technical performance, features and capability.
  • Thoughtfully flexible and versatile design with masses of mic gain available.
  • One-knob channel compressors and adaptable EQ on mic/line inputs.
  • Effective DI inputs with plenty of gain and headroom.
  • 12-channel summing bus with G-series bus compressor.
  • Talkback channel can be employed as additional mic input, complete with the listen-mic compressor.

CONS

  • USB or digital interfacing options would have been nice.
  • No input polarity reverse switches. 

SUMMARY

The most affordable SSL ever, this is an impressively well-built mini-console. Its well thought-out and versatile capabilities should make it very attractive indeed for a wide range of small-scale but quality-conscious applications. If paired with a decent audio interface, the SiX could double up as both a high-quality analogue front end for your DAW and a monitor controller. 

ALTERNATIVES

Small desktop mixers may not be uncommon, but there is no other that is so compact, yet sp well-equipped and versatile as the SSL SiX – and certainly nothing of this size that can match its technical performance.
