Oxford, England (December 8, 2021)—Expanding literally on the success of its SiX desktop mixer, Solid State Logic has launched BiG SiX, a 16-channel mixing console offering USB integration, as well as the brand’s traditional processing and routing capabilities.
BiG SiX features a SuperAnalogue design culled from the company’s 9000 consoles, along with a new 16-channel AD/DA USB interface. Also included is an “Essential Version” of the SSL G-Comp Bus Compressor, expanded with an ‘Auto’ release feature, channel dynamics processing and a three-band EQ based on the SSL 4000E console. Meanwhile, the mixer’s monitoring section sports a matrix feeding two independent headphone outputs, along with 18-channel analog summing at mixdown capability.
The mixer offers 16 channels of 96 kHz / 24-bit USB conversion which the user can reroute to external inputs, stereo cues and pre/post fader options. There are also fully balanced insert points on all four SuperAnalogue inputs; full-size 100 mm console faders; dual independent headphone outputs; and Mix Bus Inject for cascading additional SiX and BiG SiX mixers together. 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. BiG SiX sets a new benchmark in desktop mixer performance and we can’t wait to see how users enhance their productions with it.” comments Nigel Beaumont, Managing Director of Solid State Logic.
