The L200 Plus features SSL's next-generation of Optimal Core Processing (OCP) technology, offering greater DSP resource for allocation and extremely flexible I/O architecture. The console has up to 600 inputs and 600 outputs. It has 144 mix paths at 96kHz. These paths can be assigned as Channels, Stem Groups, Auxes and Masters to suit demands and configured as anything between mono, which use a single path, to 5.1 which use six paths. All 144 of the L200 Plus's mix paths are full processing paths. Insert Effects have their own dedicated processing which is also dynamically allocated.
L200 Plus Local I/O
L200 Plus is equipped with a fully featured collection of Input and Output connectivity with the capacity to serve both Front of House and Monitor applications. L200 Plus provides a versatile collection of local I/O built into the control surface so can operate without the use of any Stageboxes if required and has good connectivity for local peripherals when used in a pure FOH role. SSL Live consoles feature auto-detection so identify any SSL Live I/O connected within the software routing pages.
L200 Plus local analogue I/O configuration; 12 mic/line inputs in (two of which are in parallel with the Talkback inputs), 2 front panel Talkback mic/line XLR inputs, 12 line outputs, 2 Headphone/Monitor outputs. AES/EBU digital I/O configuration: 4 pairs of inputs and 4 pairs of outputs. AES/EBU I/O has fully variable sample rate conversion.
Standard MADI port configuration: eight MADI ports; six pairs of coaxial and two pairs of fibre which can be used independently or in a redundant configuration. There is an additional FX loop, a separate optical MADI port (out/in), designed for connecting an external FX device such as a system using Waves Multirack or a VST effects host. A redundant pair of SSL Blacklight II fibre connectors can be fitted to provide 256 bidirectional channels at 96 kHz between console and stage. An optional local Dante card provides 32x32 channels of I/O at 96 kHz over a redundant Dante connection. The Dante interface offers Sample Rate Conversion between all Dante network rates. An optional redundant pair of SSL X-Light connectors provide 256 bi-directional channels at 96kHz between console and stage using a single cable with ruggedised connectors. The back panel also accommodates connectors for MIDI, LTC, Wordclock and GP I/O. A 2nd redundant power supply is standard.
There are six models available in the SSL Live console range; the L650, L550 Plus, L450, L350 Plus, the L200 Plus and the L100 Plus. At SSL we believe that offering a range of sizes and console specifications should not mean compromising on quality or features
All six consoles use the same Remote I/O, use identical audio conversion and internal audio engine technology. The combination and layout of Fader Tiles, Master Tile and Channel Control Tile varies but the controls available and feature set are identical. The consoles use the same software with identical architecture, routing capability, and of course audio processing tool kit. A full channel on the L550 Plus is the same as a full channel on the other consoles and they all offer exactly the same outstanding collection of insert Effects. The differences between the four models centre on physical size, layout, available channel paths & processing power, and available local I/O.
Live V5.0 Software Overview
The latest V5.0 Software update brings a host of new features and enhancements to the SSL Live platform. V4.11 software introduced integrated control of L’Acoustics L-ISA Immersive system, V5.0 furthers that, adding integrated control of Meyer Sound Immersive loudspeaker systems via SpaceMap Go APP. New ‘Plus Processing Packs’, enhanced 3rd party device control, and new processing tools; Blitzer and Sorcerer, and Path Recall Safe show our commitment to keeping all SSL Live consoles ahead of the curve.
