Solid State Logic announced another expansion to its Live console range with the release of the SSL Live L200. At Prolight+Sound 2017 SSL presented the L200, a new mid-scale console that makes the sonic performance, accelerated workflow and advanced feature set of SSL Live available to a much wider audience.
The L200’s unique inverted T chassis design is driven by ergonomic considerations. It keeps all essential console controls within easy reach and brings sprung arm mounted external screens/devices closer to the centre of the console. Arms can be mounted on either or both sides of the console. Arms can be specified as screen mounts or laptop/utility trays. External screens can be used to display the Console Overview screen, Automation screen, or other system devices.
L200 features a row of three 12-channel Fader Tiles, providing a total of 38 faders including the Master and Focus Faders in the Master Tile. A centrally-located 17” multi-gesture touchscreen gives access to all of the consoles’ functions, and combines with Quick Controls in the central Fader tile to provide intuitive, immediate hands on hardware control. The Master Tile, located alongside the screen also provides Mute Group, Solo/Talkback, Assignable keys, and Automation controls.
L200’s vital statistics are: 144 processing paths all of which have full processing. These paths can be configured as up to 96 input channels, up to 48 aux sends, up to 24 stem groups and six masters. A 4 x 32 input, 24 output Matrix is provided in addition to this. Like all SSL Live consoles L200 has a flexible architecture that allows console configuration and surface layout to be easily configured to suit the demands of each production.
Onboard FX processing and FX offers the same wealth of superior quality processing options as the more powerful L300 and L500. 48 instances of FX processors are available at any one time on L200.
L200 features showfile compatibility with L300 and L500 consoles. Showfiles written on any SSL Live console will load directly onto another console in the Live range (within system limitations). SSL’s SOLSA PC app can be used for online control and offline editing.
