Solid State Logic announced the addition of its renowned Total Recall system as an option for the AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System at this year’s AES exhibition.

Total Recall provides the AWS 900 with the ability to memorize the position of analogue potentiometers and switches, allowing them to be manually reset at a later point in time. This allows the console’s analogue controls to be quickly reset, exactly recreating set-ups for recording or mixing.

Total Recall scans all analogue front panel rotary controls and mechanically latching switches, including the channel controls, central bus controls and external returns. All electronically latching switches, such as channel bus and dynamics routing can be automatically reset, as can the positions of the motorized faders. All AWS 900 consoles include custom potentiometers to allow the reading of positional information, plus a processor capable of handling this data.

Total Recall set-ups can be stored in the host workstation as MIDI System Exclusive data, therefore providing maximum integration and compatibility with the host platform and retaining the project and set-up data in a single file system.

“The initial market reactions to the AWS 900 have been fantastic,” comments Niall Feldman, Director of Product Marketing. “The vast majority of users find it ideal for their DAW-based production requirements. The single most requested additional feature has been the availability of Total Recall for the AWS 900. The good news is that a new Total Recall option package was demonstrated at the AES show and will be available shortly.”

With more than 60 systems sold since its launch earlier this year, the AWS 900 Analogue Workstation System is SSL’s fastest selling console. It combines the dual benefits of SuperAnalogue processing and sophisticated digital control to provide a complete solution to the use of Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) in professional audio applications.
