Solid State Logic (SSL) ORIGIN 32-Channel Analog Mixing Console
32-channel/16-bus console all-analog mixing console featuring the famous SSL E-Series EQ and SSL Bus Compressor, brand new PureDrive Mic-Pre, and new DAW control features providing the perfect partner for a modern DAW-driven hybrid production studio.
SSL ORIGIN is a 32-channel, purely analogue in-line mixing console featuring the legendary E-Series EQ and SSL Bus Compressor with brand new PureDrive Mic-Pre, environmentally friendly power handling and a host of hybrid workflow enhancements. ORIGIN provides the perfect partner for a modern DAW-driven production studio.
Featuring 16+2 buses, E-Series EQ and the classic SSL Bus Compressor, ORIGIN breathes new life into a design classic across the whole console. The new PureDrive™ mic pre inherits the clarity and purity of previous SSL mic pre designs, with the ability to switch character to a warm, harmonically-rich and driven tone that varies with mic pre gain.
The new mix bus and mix amp architecture delivers an amazingly low noise floor along with huge headroom. The result is a mix bus that retains the classic SSL sound, whilst bringing the breadth and space to mixes that engineers and producers love from analogue summing.
Balanced insert points per channel path (both large and small fader), dedicated channel direct outputs, stem-ready 0dB fader bypass switches, plus a new configurable centre section, make ORIGIN an ideal way of adding console workflow to a modern production studio.
The adjustable centre section features 12U of rack space, allowing the modular 6U master tile to be repositioned to create space for software controllers, a computer keyboard or additional outboard processing. The meter bridge can also be lowered into the centre section, enabling a screen to be positioned so all your production software can be viewed just where you need it.

Analogue Layout Hybrid Workflow
A unique and innovative modular centre section allow ORIGIN to adapt to different applications and priorities, whether being used as a purely tracking console with additional boutique analogue additions to the 19” rack centre section, or a very digital/analogue hybrid approach with screens and controllers easily reached from the centre of the console.
E-Series '242' EQ
The E-Series '242' EQ was probably the most popular EQ from the SL 4000 series console range, and it's back for ORIGIN, which uses this iconic SSL design for it's channel EQ.
ORIGIN features the acclaimed E-Series four-band parametric EQ on each of its 32-channels, with variable Cut/Boost per band, HF and LF Bell/Shelf switches, independent sweepable HPF on every channel and unmistakable '242' style growl and deep low end.
SSL Bus Compressor
The legend has been updated. The classic SSL Bus Compressor is a fundamental feature of SSL Master Control tiles, and see's a number of enhancements in ORIGIN. Offering new compression ratios, insert return and built-in side chain filter, the legendary mix bus glue (and punch) is ready for even the most modern of productions.
ORIGIN features a completely new microphone pre-amplifier design that inherits the clarity and purity of previous SSL mic pre's, with the added flexibility of switching character to a warm, harmonically-rich and driven tone that varies with gain. The ideal solution to 'perfect' digital system and hybrid workflow.
PureDrive™ is a new discrete transistor mic-pre based around modern FET components. The result is an ultra-clean, ultra-low noise pre amp, that is fast and offers stunning resolution when in 'Pure' mode. Hit the switch and the 'Drive' circuit is engaged, adding gain dependent non-linear harmonic saturation.
