The Hit Factory (New York City) purchased its third Solid State Logic XL 9000 K Series SuperAnalogue Console for Studio 3. The growing demand from The Hit Factory’s clients reinforced the decision to purchase the console, which adds to the recently installed XL 9000s in Studios 6 and 7.

"Obviously, we believe in the product if, in less than nine weeks of purchasing the first two, we are already buying a third," said Troy Germano, CEO of The Hit Factory. "Our clients love the console, the speed of the mixing features and its inherent SuperAnalogue sound, which were major factors in our purchasing decision. Another significant reason was SSL’s announcement at the AES Convention of the console’s ability to export mixes back to the J Series, which now gives us true compatibility between all six 9080 J and XL 9000 rooms.

"After Studios 6 and 7 opened with the two SSL XLs in them, we soon realized the need to start changing the Js to XLs, and this purchase of a third XL console is the next logical step."

Studio 3 is primarily used for stereo mixing and 5.1 projects, and Germano believes that the new XL 9000 K will be as successful in Studio 3 as it is in the new Studios 6 and 7. Studio 3’s console change-over will begin late this month, and the room plans to open on January 6, 2003.
