Responding to the enormous success of the AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System, Solid State Logic announces the AWS 900+, featuring new control protocols for a wide range of digital audio workstations including Nuendoâ„¢, Sonarâ„¢, Digital Performerâ„¢ and Logicâ„¢.
Since its introduction just two years ago, the original AWS 900 has quickly established itself as a unique combination of a world-class analogue console and sophisticated DAW controller. Over 150 AWS 900 Analogue Workstation Systems have been sold, with the console notching up an impressive catalog of credits including the Rolling Stones' A Bigger Bang, Alicia Keys's Unplugged and Barbra Streisand's Guilty Pleasures. In 2005 the console scooped the TEC Award in the Large Format Console category - despite measuring in at just 56".
AWS 900+ builds on the successful formula by adding tighter integration with all popular DAW platforms, enhancements to the displays and meters, and a sleek 'platinum' styling.
Using the new control protocols, plug-ins and virtual instruments can now be controlled from the D-Pots and the faders, a hotly requested feature from many workstation users. An enhanced display allows up to 6 character labels for track/channel names and the console also now features workstation Master Fader support.
The AWS 900+ is still the only console that provides the dual benefits of a fully featured SuperAnalogueâ„¢ signal path coupled with a comprehensive DAW controller. Key features include SSL's legendary SuperAnalogueâ„¢ mic pre's and signal processing; full monitoring up to 5.1-channel surround sound; direct control of DAW recording, editing and mixing functions; and flexible signal routing.
Additional features include greater bandwidth than 192kHz recorders; twin curve SSL E and G Series 4-band parametric equalization; assignable SSL dynamics section with gate, expander and compressor/limiter; G Series Stereo main mix buss compressor; flexible processing order; balanced circuitry throughout; oxygen-free cable throughout; and metering on all channels and main outputs.
