Riverlight Studios adds the SSL X-Factor to their AWS 900 Console

Composer and producer Leo Cottakis has chosen a complete Solid State Logic solution for his new Riverlight Studios in London by installing an AWS 900 analogue workstation and two SSL X-Rack Dynamics packages.
The AWS 900, which along with the X-Rack was supplied by KMR Audio, is seamlessly integrated with the main recording system, a 16 input / 32 output Digidesign Protools HD 2, affording direct control of all Pro Tools parameters.
SSL’s X-Rack is a modular rack system that incorporates the SuperAnalogue processing of SSL’s XL 9000 K series console. The X-Rack now features three optional modules - Mic Amp, Channel EQ and the original Dynamics module. This combination make it ideal as a stand alone processing solution for studio or live applications, or working with the flexible inserts of an AWS 900 to provide a complete 'SSL' channel processing solution for the console.
Leo Cottakis chose the AWS 900 console as a replacement for his old desk because it integrates so well with Pro Tools. He said: “It was the obvious choice for the studio and has excellent sonic credentials, automation and Total Recall (TR). Also, the fact that so much control is available in such a small footprint means that suddenly my control room is much more spacious!
“The inclusion of switchable E and G-Series EQ per channel is really cool and the X-Rack idea is a fantastic one: it’s modular, uses TR which is accessible from the desk, and the Dynamics module sounds great - solidly built and very sensibly priced.”
Riverlight Studios is located in a converted mews house in Chelsea. Designed by Recording Architecture and installed by Bill Ward of NFK, Riverlight is arranged over three levels and incorporates a a piano room with a 6’ Steinway Grand, a programming room, a live area, a machine room and a control room with 5.1 surround and discreet stereo monitoring. The control room also include an extensive selection of outboard equipment including GML, Lexicon, Chandler, Summit Audio, DW Fearn and Prism Sound.
