X-Desk 16-Channel Summing Mixer Ideal for Smaller Studio Installations
Solid State Logic is proud to announce that X-Desk is now shipping. Response to X-Desk has been exceptional since the first show of the product in March at Music Messe 09 with strong demand worldwide.
X-Desk is available now from authorized SSL resellers priced $2899.
Meeting the demand for a world class, compact SSL mixing desk, X-Desk combines a 16 channel SSL SuperAnalogue summing mixer with a compact analogue audio hub. Small enough to be easily transported, X-Desk fulfills all the essentials of the audio mixing process, with typical SSL attention to detail and depth, including smooth 100mm faders, comprehensive artist & studio monitoring with Dim & Cut buttons, Stereo and Mono Aux sends, channel and Master Bus Inserts and accurate bar graph level metering.
For easy integration into an existing studio, X-Desk can be used as an elegant and ergonomically refined desktop mixer with removable rack ears for standard 19″ rack mounting (7U space required). Like all SSL SuperAnalogue products, it is extremely robust, hand-built in the UK with an all metal chassis and high quality controls and components. Up to eight X-Desks or X-Desk & X-Rack combinations can be cascaded via D-Sub connection to expand up to 160 inputs on mixdown. X-Desk brings benchmark audio performance to the compact mixer format.
