After 35 years of designing high-end audio consoles for recording, broadcast, and post-production, SSL stepped out of its comfort zone in the last year and into the realm of live sound. The result is the SSL Live console, powered by Tempest, SSL’s fourth generation digital audio platform developed specifically for the live environment that uses patented Optimal Core Processing (OCP) for efficient and reliable performance with minimal latency. "SSL’s legacy is undeniable," says one judge. "So this console’s release obviously sparked huge interest from the live sound community, one that hadn’t yet reaped the benefits of the SSL pedigree. We’ll be interested to see what else comes out of this exciting development." Another just adds, simply, "It is pretty amazing."
