“Matrix 2 provides production power and flexibility like no other console, with a collection of powerful new features”

ANAHEIM — Solid State Logic, the world’s leading manufacturer of tools for creative audio professionals, is showcasing its Matrix2 at the 2014 NAMM Show (Booth 6900). Since its 2008 launch, the SSL Matrix console has established a high-profile clientele who value its unique capabilities as a genuinely hybrid production platform. Like its predecessor, the Matrix2 features a combination of SSL analogue summing, streamlined integration of boutique analogue outboard mic pres and processing (via its software controlled analogue patch system) and an advanced DAW control surface.

“Matrix provides production power and flexibility like no other console,” says Piers Plaskitt, CEO of Solid State Logic, Inc. “This is a significant upgrade to Matrix, which introduces a cool collection of features that new customers will enjoy and existing customers can access free of charge. This new version should see Matrix continue to provide the most elegant and streamlined way to create a true hybrid audio production environment for years to come.”

Based on feedback from customers, the new Matrix2 provides a collection of powerful new features. One of the unique and much praised features of Matrix has always been the integrated software controlled patching of analogue channel inserts. Matrix2 hardware device inserts can now be loaded directly from the console hardware controls with an intuitive new interface that facilitates loading individual processors, A/B comparison of different processors and building processor chains. This was previously only accomplished via the remote browser software, which has now also been re-designed to provide a new ‘drag and drop’ style interface for loading processors and building chains.

A powerful ‘Fader Linking’ system has been added to the console, which allows two or more faders to be grouped, to facilitate stereo or 5.1 channel control or subgroup style mixing. The A-FADA (Analogue Fader Accesses DAW Automation) summing system used in Duality, AWS and the new SSL Sigma rack has been introduced to enable the analogue faders of Matrix2 to be driven by automation data from a user’s DAW. A-FADA enables channel automation to be performed entirely in the analogue signal path, but with the advantages of DAW automation data editing. The addition of A-FADA to Matrix2 facilitates project portability between different SSL products. The previously optional 5.1 output card will now be included as standard pre-fitted in all units.

A collection of smaller new features have also been added including ‘partial TR setup save and import,’ which allows selected parts of the console setup to be saved and imported as setup templates; new Preset insert matrix ‘scenes;’ Preset insert naming tools; ’automatic dB readout’ for Pro Tools users, allowing the scribble strip to automatically display fader values upon touch; modifier key ‘press and hold’ functionality for Cubase/Nuendo users and new DAW templates for Presonus Studio One and Ableton Live!

Priced at $23,999, £14,749 and €18,487 + Tax, Matrix2 is now shipping.
All of these new features (excluding the 5.1 output card) are available to existing customers as a free upgrade.
