Here are more details straight from SSL…
BiG SiX is the ultimate tool for artists and musicians working in a hybrid recording and mixing environment. The console’s SuperAnalogue™ design delivers the punch, clarity, and ultra-low distortion that engineers love from the company’s 9000 consoles, along with a new 16-channel USB AD/DA interface. Also included is an ‘essential version’ of the G-Comp SSL Bus Compressor, now with the famous ‘Auto’ release function, channel dynamics processing and a three-band EQ based on the iconic SSL 4000E console. Producers and mixing engineers will appreciate BiG SiX’s comprehensive monitoring section with a comprehensive source matrix feeding two independent headphone outputs, as well as its impressive 18-channel analog summing capability when mixing. The result is that BIG SiX is the go-to SSL studio.
BiG SiX is an agile and efficient solution at all times of the production process. In addition to 16 channels of high-performance 96 kHz/24-bit USB conversion that the user can re-route to external inputs, stereo cues, and pre/post-fader options, BiG SiX also features fully balanced insert points on all SuperAnalogue™ inputs, full size. 100mm SSL console-grade faders, Mix Bus Inject for cascading additional SiXs and BiG SiXs, two independent headphone outputs, and more.
