To provide our customers with more flexibility in setting up their studio, the product has been designed to work modularly, allowing for the expansion of the Mini SSL into a larger console.

This modular approach enhances its appeal, offering scalability and adaptability to evolve studio setups.

Who is the Mini SSL for?

Tailored for every creative soul in the industry seeking quality in a small scale, the Mini SSL offers flexibility with its size and easy I/O capabilities. It’s perfect for professionals craving a compact version of the iconic SSL 4000 consoles, for an extra setup at home or in an additional space to work on their recordings and mixing projects.

Despite its modest channel count, the Mini SSL offers unlimited possibilities. Whether recording a band or mixing a full project, its flexibility knows no bounds. With the ability to record 8 Mic/Line signals, it’s perfect for capturing drum kits or creatively recording entire bands with just 8 mics. Coupled with a breakout box, it offers even more freedom in signal routing.

In terms of mixing, the Mini SSL truly shines. With the capacity to mix a total of 24 channels (8 channels via the channel path and 16 channels summed into the monitor path), it seamlessly integrates in-the-box mixing with its onboard capabilities, empowering users to tackle larger projects with ease. Furthermore, for those seeking more processing options, it excels at mixing stems, allowing for full utilisation of SSL 4000 EQs and channel dynamics.
