NEW YORK — Solid State Logic’s Duality SuperAnalogue console has set the standard for large format console design by combining SSL’s signature analogue sound and signal path with sophisticated workstation control. SSL has sold 80 Duality consoles worldwide. Duality’s unique hybrid design is making it the console of choice for major recording studios and educational facilities seeking the purity of SSL’s renowned sonics and proven DAW control capabilities.
Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds’ Brandon’s Way Studios, a production studio in Hollywood, features two SSL rooms. A Duality 48 console in Studio B is the facility’s latest addition, joining an SL 9096 J Series in Studio A. The Duality is providing the streamlined interface between the console and workstation environment.
Phase One Studios, Toronto, primarily focuses on high-end music production with a long standing roster of clients and gold records. Their new Duality replaces an SSL 4072G Series console, bringing Phase One’s Studio C into the future.

The education market, traditionally strong for SSL, has seen a significant increase of Duality installations. Students who use SSL consoles in an educational environment are prepared for what they will encounter in the real world. Duality’s hybrid design offers student the ability to learn about the importance of analog audio, signal routing while operating in a workstation environment with control directly from the console.
