The Hit Factory (New York City) has purchased two of Solid State Logic’s new XL 9000 K Series SuperAnalogue consoles for its soon-to-be-completed Studio 6 and Studio 7 in its main headquarters in New York City. With an ongoing 18-year relationship with SSL involving 24 consoles, the Hit Factory has successfully recorded artists in rock, pop, R&B and hip hop.

"The XL is a 'J' Series console on steroids, and that’s exactly what we wanted for these two rooms," said Troy Germano, CEO of the Hit Factory. "The XL has the power and flexibility to go back and forth between regular stereo mixing and 5.1 for DVD-Audio and SACD. We feel that these multiformat options are what we need to continue growing within our industry, especially since they are being set up with 5.1, just like we did in our Miami rooms."

The Hit Factory’s XL 9000 K's are identical 80-channel consoles with the focus of the larger Studio 6 on tracking and mixing, while Studio 7 is used for mixing and overdubbing.

"One of the reasons we purchased two consoles was to allow clients to go back and forth between the two rooms," Germano explains. "This necessitated making both control rooms identical to accommodate our clients. In addition, we’re also excited about the remote mic pre option, which will be installed in Studio 6. We expect to be online with both rooms toward the end of April, and anticipate strong bookings from the beginning."
