- 2020 Innovation
During 50 years of audio technology innovation, Solid State Logic has evolved into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of analogue and digital audio consoles and provider of creative music tools for live, studio, film and broadcast professionals.
Founded in 1969 by the late Colin Sanders CBE, the company’s first products were switching systems for pipe organs, for which Colin coined the phrase ‘Solid State Logic’ as a descriptor (later to become the company name). As a keen recording musician, Colin established a small studio in Oxfordshire, where he began building mixing consoles. By the late 1970s, these consoles drew interest from music studios across the globe and so started the evolution of the business that operates today.
SSL’s audio consoles and production tools are found in the most prestigious recording studios and venues around the world, where they’ve helped create hit, era-defining recordings for over four decades. Investment is now focused on providing new audio tools for the next generation of aspiring musicians, engineers and audio creators.
Broadcasters have similarly embraced the company’s innovative digital technology and network-native solutions for streamlined workflow and high-quality audio output. The Innovation award is specifically for SSL’s System T broadcast platform that allows broadcasters and media creators to improve audio quality whilst lowering production costs for time critical productions in television, radio and internet broadcast channels.
Based in Begbroke, Oxford, the company’s UK HQ houses 115 staff involved in research & development, manufacturing, sales, and customer support. Global operations include regional offices in Los Angeles, New York and Paris, with additional frontline sales and support provided by an international network of 150+ qualified distributors and dealers.
