[AES] New SSL Live L300 digital console
SSL will introduce this week at the AES Show a more compact version of its Live digital mixing console.
The SSL Live L300 completes the now Live Series that debuted last year with the renamed Live L500 console.
The Live L300 design is the same as the larger model, with built-in and arm-mounted touchscreens and both L300 and L500 can share a remote I/O box.
Being more compact,, the Live L300 offers less inputs and outputs than its sibling, and is also more affordable (no information about the price yet, hopefully it stays around the $50 000).
- Up to 568 I/O supported
- 128 processing paths (96 full and 32 dry)
- 32 input / 36 output matrix
- 16 mic/line inputs and 16 line outputs
- 4 pairs of AES/EBU digital I/O
- 8 MADI coaxial/optical ports (4 redundant pairs)
- 1 MADI effect loop
- 36 VCA
- 48 effect slots
- 24 + 2 faders
- 19” main touch screen
- 2 redundant power supplies
- Width: 923mm
- Weight: 81kg
The Live L300 will include the new v2.5 software, which will also be available for the L500. This update will offer optimized effects that allow for a higher number of instances and 27 new features, including:
- Follow Mode for linking the Select, Solo and Query functions in any configuration to “follow” other controls for each channel
- Tempo Link to link and control the Tap Tempo for any delay effect, with support of up to 6 Tap Tempo functions that can be controlled via the new User buttons on the console and the touch screens
- User buttons to access 4 of the most used menus on the console
- New menus added to the Channel Control Tiles Home button, with its own touch screen: access mute groups, user buttons and automation view
- Copy any or all mono, stereo and LCR mix busses
The SSL Live L300 as well as v2.5 software will be available starting November. SSL will also offer an L300-compatible version of its SOLSA offline setup application.
