Solid State Logic - Duality Recording Console


Message Board - Solid State Logic - Duality Recording Console

Duality is an evolutionary combination of analogue console and DAW controller from Solid State Logic. It draws on years of design experience, and incorporates industry standard features from SSL’s range of large format music consoles.

Duality combines technology from SSL’s acclaimed music console, the XL 9000 K Series with new design concepts which faithfully recreate the overload characteristics of valve circuitry. It retains all of the sonic benefits of SuperAnalogue™ capacitorless servo coupled circuitry, then adds variable harmonic colouration on a channel by channel basis, contained within a control surface which will be familiar to any recording engineer who has previously used SSL consoles.

The ubiquitous DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) has brought many benefits to audio production, including visual audio editing, integrated digital effects processing and convenient session storage and recall. However, although eminently flexible, DAW’s present new challenges of integration within the studio environment today.

Duality has been carefully designed with these requirements in mind. It addresses all the needs of current DAW production techniques in an integrated, high quality and robust design, coupled with all of the sonic benefits expected from a Solid State Logic console.

SSL’s extensive design experience has been utilized to create the ultimate capture path for up to 96 simultaneous inputs into the DAW, where recorded signals can be edited, processed and mixed via Duality’s control surface. The signal paths can then be either summed internally within the DAW or returned to the analogue domain for further processing via Duality’s channel path EQ and dynamics processors, before final summing via the console’s balanced analogue mix bus architecture. With a comprehensive 5.1 monitoring section, audio can be auditioned with the highest possible audio integrity.

A high resolution, digitally controlled gain element in each channel allows the motorized faders to be switched to control any DAW that supports the HUI or Mackie Control protocols, while retaining control of the analogue signal path. The faders and their associated channel-based rotary encoders (D-pots) provide direct control of DAW faders, pans, sends, plus input and output routing. The Master Control Panel and Duality’s centre section screen give paged control of all plug-in parameters.
