Solid State Logic
(SSL) has expanded its ORIGIN range with a new 16-channel variant. Following the
enormous success of its larger 32-channel sibling, ORIGIN 16 has the same
features, intelligent hybrid workflows, and stunning SSL sound quality, all in
a smaller footprint. Ideal for project studios, music technology schools and
colleges, as well as producer rooms or smaller record/mix facilities, ORIGIN 16
brings the dream of an SSL studio closer to a broader range of users who crave
the legendary sound and advanced workflow of SSL.
With its legendary
sound and powerful features, ORIGIN 16 is the most comprehensive analogue
console in its class and the ultimate solution for hybrid, DAW-based workflows
where console automation is not required. Sharing the same center section as
the bigger 32-channel variant, ORIGIN 16 draws on traditional in-line consoles
for inspiration, while leveraging SSL's latest cutting-edge analogue design.
Simple signal flow, advanced
ORIGIN 16's simple signal flow
and layout make it easy to understand and use, while powerful features such as
channel direct outputs, a fully balanced electronic architecture, and precision bar graph meters make it an ideal companion for even the highest quality
converters and most demanding professional production applications.
Similar to its larger sibling, an
innovative modular center section allows ORIGIN 16 to adapt to different
applications - for instance, a tracking console with additional boutique
analogue processing to its 19" rack center section, or a more digital/analog
hybrid approach with screens and controllers such as the SSL UF8 Advanced DAW
Controller - all of which are easily reached from the listening position.
ORIGIN 16's ultra-low power consumption and innovative power-saving features
equal lower operational costs for smaller rooms and musician-based project
ORIGIN 16's PureDrive microphone
preamplifier provides a wide range of sonic options, bringing unparalleled
flexibility whether using it for tracking or mixing. Users can attain
ultra-clean to driven sounds present in previous SSL mic pre-designs but also
engage a warmer, more harmonically rich tone by activating the "Drive" function.
ORIGIN 16 also uses a classic SSL
EQ design made famous on its previous generations of consoles. The E-Series
'242' EQ was probably the most popular EQ from the SL 4000 Series console
range, and this design was also present in several SSL console designs that
followed, including the G-Series. A built-in classic SSL Bus Compressor, with
sidechain access and HP filter, makes ORIGIN 16 the perfect solution for mixing
16 key features:
in-line channels / 16 track busses / 8 stereo subgroups/total of 56
inputs at mixdown.
master section and monitoring options as 32 channel ORIGIN.
