ORIGIN SSL

Limited stock available in select stores only

As the latest in a long heritage of SSL studio mixing consoles, ORIGIN has traditional analogue studio workflow at its heart while providing the perfect partner for a modern DAW-driven 'hybrid' production studio.

Next generation analogue studio console

A purely analogue inline design, with 16 buses, E-Series EQ and classic Bus Compressor, ORIGIN breathes new life into a design classic across the whole console. The new PureDrive[trade] mic pre inherits the clarity and purity of previous SSL Mic Pre designs, switching character to a warm, harmonically-rich and driven tone that varies with mic pre gain.

The new mix bus and mix amp architecture delivers an amazingly-low noise floor along with huge headroom. The result is a mix bus that retains the classic SSL sound, while bringing the breadth and space to mixes that engineers and producers love from analogue summing.

Balanced insert points per channel path (both large and small fader), dedicated channel direct outputs, stem-ready 0dB fader bypass switches, plus a new configurable centre section, make ORIGIN an ideal way of adding console workflow to a modern production studio.

The adjustable centre section features 12U of rack space, allowing the modular 6U master tile to be repositioned to create space for software controllers, a computer keyboard or additional outboard processing. The meter bridge can also be lowered into the centre section, enabling a screen to be positioned so all your production software can be viewed just where you need it. Includes side panels and legs.

A purely analogue design, ORIGIN represents a new benchmark in SSL's SuperAnalogue[trade] performance with a unique sonic signature while being unmistakably an SSL console.

  • A new PureDrive[trade] mic pre inherits the clarity and purity of previous SSL Mic Pre designs that can also switch to a warm, harmonically rich and driven tone that varies with mic pre gain when the "Drive" function is activated.

  • A new mix bus and mix amp architecture delivers an amazingly low noise floor and huge headroom, along with SSL's latest summing bus technology that retains the classic SSL sound while bringing the breadth and space to mixes that engineers and producers love from analogue.

  • Acclaimed SSL E-Series four band parametric channel EQ.

  • Classic SSL Bus Compressor with sidechain access and HP filter.

  • Balanced Insert Point per Large Fader and Small Fader Channel paths.

  • Dedicated Channel Direct Output make it easy to print mixes to the workstation for easy mix revisions.

  • Modern circuit designs and unique power management tools deliver ultimate reliability and low running costs


ORIGIN Master Control

The Master Control section is the heart of ORIGIN, designed with the easily accessible features and tools needed for fast and creative session workflow. Taking sustainability, ergonomics, modern gain-staging and communication requirements into consideration, ORIGIN offers a reassuringly familiar Master Control feature-set with some ahead-of-the-curve functionality.

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 L 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.

Classic SSL Innovation

E-Series '242' EQ
The E-Series '242' EQ was probably the most popular EQ from the SL 4000 series console range, and it's back for ORIGIN, which uses this iconic SSL design for it's channel EQ.

ORIGIN features the acclaimed E-Series four-band parametric EQ on each of its 32-channels, with variable Cut/Boost per band, HF and LF Bell/Shelf switches, independent sweepable HPF on every channel and unmistakable '242' style growl and deep low end.

PureDrive[trade]
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[trade] 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.

ORIGIN Centre Section

With the evolution of more sophisticated digital audio workstations and new hybrid approaches to session workflow, ORIGIN takes a fresh look at what an analogue console provides to complement these sophisticated digital tools.

While ORIGIN has a familiar surface, its design makes it adaptable for many different production scenarios. The 19" rack based 'modular' centre section allows the console to adapt to different control priorities and adds space for custom outboard processing. For example, the addition of a central 500 series rack provides a way to accommodate flexible analogue processing from a number of manufacturers, the ability to move the centre section allows for workstation controllers to be centrally located, even the 3U centre meter panel can be moved to allow a workstation monitor to move closer to the engineer without obscuring the main meters.
