SSL AWS 900 Analogue Workstation Sales Pushing 100Provides SuperAnalogue quality coupled with digital control capabilities (March 09, 2005)
Worldwide sales of the Solid State Logic AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System, sold by Guitar Center and GC Pro in the U.S., AudioPro International, Inc. in Canada and Vari International in Mexico, are approaching 100 with 50 sales in North America. Installations including high-end studios and production suites to project studios and rental houses are all benefiting from an inspired console design that is setting new standards. From Will Smith and Alicia Keys studios to producer and A&R executive David Kershenbaums private production environment to engineer Denis Savages use for Celine Dion and others at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the AWS 900 is leading the industry into the future.
?The AWS 900 has set the industry on fire by providing exactly the right combination of SuperAnalogue quality coupled with extraordinary digital control capabilities at an attractive price point, says Rick Plushner, president of Solid State Logic, North America. ?Solid State Logic has a history of consistently setting industry standards that major artists, producers and engineers have embraced for their creative work on an impressive list of chart-topping hits for decades. In this time of digital workstations and the redefinition of the recording process, the AWS 900 delivers what the industry needs on all levels of sophistication.
The verdict is in about the AWS 900 from a growing list of very satisfied clients.
Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Flyte Tyme − Los Angeles
?Its nice to finally have a console that seamlessly blends the analog and digital studio world, says Terry Lewis of Flyte Tyme. ?The AWS 900 sounds wide, open, and punchy like an SSL should. We are loving it! [Flyte Tyme purchased five AWS 900 consoles.]
Tal Herzberg, engineer/producer − Los Angeles
?Ive commissioned the AWS 900 console, a full-blown Pro Tools rig and a bunch of outboard gear, says engineer/producer Tal Herzberg, who purchased the console for a room at Henson Recording Studios. ?I really wanted the room to sonically sizzle and the AWS 900 accomplishes this, while comfortably fitting in the control room. To me, the AWS 900 is the only console produced that would fit the needs of this room. The room has been booked nearly 100 percent since installed.
Alonzo ?Zo Lee Jr. and Shamar ?Sham Daugherty − St. Louis
?Because we use Pro Tools almost 100 percent of the time, having a console that integrates with Pro Tools while delivering SSL quality at this aggressive price point was a no-brainer for us, says Alonzo Zo. ?The AWS 900 is the backbone of our new facility. Having the console in house enables us to change the way we approach our project budgeting and the individual acts that we produce. The AWS allows us to record, track and mix all on the same console, in our own facility, with SSL quality and that is pretty impressive.
Robert Rettberg, composer/producer − Toronto
?The AWS 900 will help facilitate quick recall and remixes because of the digital control surface, while the analog portion of the console is great for multiple mic sessions, says composer/producer Robert Rettberg of Digital Creative Service. ?I have been waiting for a console like this for almost 10 years.
Paul Levy, Advanced Audio Rentals − Burbank
?The AWS 900 represents a significant leap for our clients, says Paul Levy, owner of Advanced Audio Rentals. ?Many of our clients work with SSL consoles in the major studios. The arrival of the AWS 900 gives us an SSL SuperAnalogue console in a rental package. This console is small enough to put in a case and transport. Clients can now rent the entire SSL/ProTools HD package from one vendor.
Samuel Girardin, Point dorgue − Montreal
?Sound design for video games requires a lot of creative input and that creativity, which has become one of our fortes over the years, gives us an edge, says Samuel Girardin, owner and founder of Point dorgue, a post production facility. ?The SSL AWS 900 is the first step in building our second studio. The AWS 900 will allow me to expand on our already established expertise in sound work for the advertising and music recording industries.
