SSL XLogic SuperAnalogue X-Rack

Let’s be honest: Who hasn’t wanted to own or work on a big SSL the size of a battleship at some point in their career? Sure there are acoustic issues having such a behemoth in the studio, and the in-the-box guys will tell you that plug-ins have replaced the need for hardware, but you’d be hard pressed to deny that SSL has defined the sound of modern pop, R&B, rap, and rock music. And there are two reasons most of the top mixing engineers are working on SSLs: the sound, and the flexibility. With compression, gates, and EQ on every channel, SSL has forced every other large format console manufacturer to rethink their own designs and allowed the mixing engineer unprecedented control and routing flexibility, as well as total recall.
