Featuring rugged connectors and cable redundancy, Blacklight II is designed to offer a MADI I/O solution that is reliable and quick to deploy…
L100 processing power allocation and I/O architecture is extremely flexible. The console has up to 472 inputs and 472 outputs. It has 96 mix paths at 96kHz. These paths can be assigned as Channels, Stem Groups, Auxes and Masters to suit demands and configured as mono, stereo, LCR, 4.0 or 5.1. A mono Channel consumes one path, a stereo two, an LCR three a 4.0 path four and a 5.1 six. All 96 of the mix paths are full processing paths. Insert Effects have their own dedicated processing which is also dynamically allocated.
L100 features an output matrix which has four x 32 inputs and 12 outputs. All 12 matrix output paths have High and Low Pass Filters, 4 band EQ, 2 seconds of delay and our unique All Pass Filters available. This is in addition to two inserts that can be used with both the internal Effects Rack and external processing.
L100 is equipped with a fully featured collection of Input and Output connectivity with the capacity to serve small to mid-scale production applications. L100 provides a versatile collection of local I/O built into the control surface so can operate without the use of any Stageboxes if required and has good connectivity for local peripherals when used in a pure FOH role. SSL Live consoles feature auto detection so identify any SSL Live I/O connected within the software routing pages.
Standard MADI port configuration: four pairs of coaxial MADI ports. There is an additional FX loop - a separate optical MADI port (out/in), designed for connecting an external FX device such as a system using Waves Multirack or a VST effects host. An optional redundant pair of SSL Blacklight II fibre connectors provide 256 bi-directional channels at 96kHz between console and stage. An optional local Dante card provides 32x32 channels of I/O at 96 kHz over a redundant Dante connection. The Dante interface offers Sample Rate Conversion between all Dante network rates. An optional redundant pair of SSL X-Light connectors provide 256 bi-directional channels at 96kHz between console and stage using a single cable with ruggedised connectors. There is a Wordclock connection. A redundant power supply is optional.
L100 local analogue I/O configuration; 12 mic/line inputs in, 2 front panel Talkback mic/line XLR inputs, 12 line outputs, 2 Headphone/Monitor outputs and a front panel 3.5mm line input. AES/EBU digital I/O configuration: 4 pairs of inputs and 4 pairs of outputs. AES/EBU I/O has fully variable sample rate conversion.
There are four models available in the SSL Live console range; the L550, the L350, the L200 and the L100. At SSL we believe that offering a range of sizes and console specifications should not mean compromising on quality or features.
All four consoles use the same Remote I/O, use identical audio conversion and internal audio engine technology. The combination and layout of Fader Tiles, Master Tile and Channel Control Tile varies but the controls available and feature set are identical. The consoles use the same software with identical architecture, routing capability, and of course audio processing tool kit. A full channel on the L550 is the same as a full channel on the other consoles and they all offer exactly the same outstanding collection of insert Effects. The differences between the four models centre on physical size, layout, available channel paths & processing power, and available local I/O.
The specification differences are so straightforward they are summed up clearly in the comparison table below.
