SSL X-Desk 16 Channel Analogue Mixer


Meeting the demand for a world-class, compact SSL mixing desk, X-Desk combines a 16 channel SSL SuperAnalogue™ summing mixer with a compact analogue audio hub for your studio. It is small enough to be easily transported while fulfilling all the essentials of the audio mixing process. Designed with typical SSL attention to detail and depth, including smooth 100mm faders, comprehensive artist & studio monitoring with Dim & Cut buttons, Stereo and Mono Aux sends, channel & Master Bus Inserts and accurate bar graph level metering.

 

For easy integration into your existing studio, X-Desk can be used as an elegant and ergonomically refined desktop mixer with removable rack ears for standard 19" rack mounting (7U space required). Like all SSL SuperAnalogue™ products, it is extremely robust, hand-built in the UK with an all-metal chassis and high-quality controls and components. The X-Desk will survive even the harshest of treatments for years to come and won’t let you down when you need it. Up to eight X-Desks or X-Desk & X-Rack combinations can be cascaded via D-Sub connection to expand up to 160 inputs on mixdown. X-Desk brings benchmark audio performance to the compact mixer format.
