The SSL Origin 32-channel in-line mixing console is the latest in a long heritage of SSL studio mixing consoles, ORIGIN has traditional analogue studio workflow at its heart whilst providing the perfect partner for a modern DAW-driven ‘hybrid’ production studio.
ORIGIN is more than just the culmination of four decades of technical innovation. Because of our deep knowledge of workflow and studio integration, we also understand that a console has to provide the immediacy and well-executed ergonomics that will inspire and engage a modern studio environment. We believe ORIGIN does this and more; leading the way with a fresh look at how an analogue console compliments the latest digital tools and production techniques.
the SSL ORIGIN features a completely new microphone pre-amplifier design that inherits the clarity and purity of previous SSL mic pre's, with the added flexibility of switching character to a warm, harmonically-rich and driven tone that varies with gain. The ideal solution to 'perfect' digital system and hybrid workflow.
PureDrive™ is a new discrete transistor mic-pre based around modern FET components. The result is an ultra-clean, ultra-low noise pre amp, that is fast and offers stunning resolution when in 'Pure' mode. Hit the switch and the 'Drive' circuit is engaged, adding gain dependent non-linear harmonic saturation.
SSL Bus Compressor - The classic SSL Bus Compressor is a fundamental feature of SSL Master Control tiles, and sees a number of enhancements in ORIGIN. Offering new compression ratios, insert return and built-in side chain filter, the legendary mix bus glue (and punch) is ready for even the most modern of productions.
Bus Trim Masters and Routing - Central track bus routing matrix, featuring sixteen +/- 10dB Trims for the track buses, with a routing assign switches for each bus.
Auto Sleep - The unique Auto Sleep mode enables automatic detection of prolonged inactivity to put the console in stand-by, reducing power consumption and making ORIGIN significantly more efficient than legacy SSL consoles.
Solo Master Section - Comprehensive Solo controls provide choice of Solo-In-Front with Mix balance, Solo-In-Place for Large, Small & Group faders and PFL options. Solo Level, Solo Clear and Red Light Switch complete the available options.
Mix Bus - The mix bus features a high-quality 100mm fader, with fully balanced switched Insert for external bus processing.
Monitoring - The monitoring section features independent Trims for Alternate Monitors 1 & 2, variable DIM level, MONO plus Left & Right MUTES and øL polarity switch. You can select your monitor source from the main mix, three external stereo sources or a front panel stereo 3.5mm jack input, with a Sum switch allowing selected sources to be listened to simultaneously.
Returns - Four Stereo Return Inputs enable ORIGIN to route to Mix and Track Buses with level controlled feeds to Stereo Foldback Outputs A & B.
EQ - The SSL ORIGIN uses the iconic E-Series '242' EQ for its channel EQ.
