A modern twist on the classic analogue studio console.

The Solid State Logic XL-Desk is designed for tracking or mixing engineers who require an analogue console within a DAW centric studio, but don't want or need the integrated DAW control and analogue level automation. The XL-Desk is, in many ways, a traditional 24 into 8 analogue console packed with an incredible collection of features. It has 20 channel strips: 16 dual input mono (switchable between main input or DAW return) and 4 stereo channels. The first eight channels have VHD mic pre's. There is an 18 slot 500 format rack built in that can be used for processing or mic pre's. There are four main Mix Busses (A, B, C, D) with buses B, C and D able to be summed into Mix A. The Busses and channels can access the 500 rack and each have a separate insert point for processing. There are two mono aux sends and two stereo return inputs. Direct outputs on every channel, stereo return and mix bus enable convenient stem printing. Each channel has a Cue Stereo Bus section (with Pan and Volume) used to provide one of the headphone mixes while tracking. At mixdown, the mono channel DAW return signals can be routed to the CUE ST bus and then summed into Mix A, so there are 16 main faders, 16 Cue ST inputs and 4 Stereo channels providing 40 summing inputs. There is also a fully-featured monitoring section with bass management, Foldback A and B with individual talkbacks for headphone mixes and a built-in Listen Mic input and classic compressor circuit, with its own direct output.
