Solid State Logic, manufacturer of professional analog and digital audio consoles for music, broadcast, post-production and film, received the 2004 Technical Grammy Award at the 46th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony. The award recognizes SSL for the design and production of industry-defining audio mixing consoles over the years.

“We are delighted to receive this special award,” says Colin Pringle, managing director of Solid State Logic. “The Grammy Awards recognize outstanding creative achievement in the music industry. This special Technical Grammy is therefore especially welcome as an acknowledgement of SSL’s creative use of technology to aid better music production.”

Since the company’s founding in 1969, SSL has pioneered advances in console technology; in the late '70s, SSL introduced the SL 4000 console. By combining ergonomics of in-line design with integrated computer automation and Total Recall, the SL 4000 became the standard music production console for the 1980s.

The 1990s saw SSL introduce digital processing technology, with the launch of a range of products that incorporated totally automated control surfaces offering instant recall and complete reset. Midway through the 1990s, SSL launched its next generation console, the SL 9000. This introduced a revolutionary new design of audio circuitry providing new levels of audio quality for music production.

Today, SSL’s XL 9000 K Series console provides leading international studios with a SuperAnalogue console for the surround audio formats. Similarly, the C200 console provides a digital console for 5.1 surround production at 96KHz with complete automation and reset of all functions.
