First SSL AWS 900+ Analogue Workstation sold

Musician Bob Jabour, owner of one of the US' most extensive collections of vintage instruments, amplifiers and recording equipment, has taken delivery of the first Solid State Logic AWS 900+ Analogue Workstation System.
The AWS 900+, featuring new control protocols for a wide range of digital audio workstations including Nuendo, Sonar, Digital Performer and Logic, will serve Jabour’s combination recording studio/museum of vintage gear.
Lee Jackson, integrator for Jabour’s studio, reports that the AWS 900+ was put to work upon its arrival from Austin’s Guitar Center and its professional division, GC Pro. “We immediately set up the console and started cutting,” said Jackson, founder of the Metaltronix, Perfect Connection and Lee Jackson Amplification companies. “Mark Andes, the bass player from Heart and Spirit, came in to lay tracks on a project. We used the instrument input and it just sounded amazing.”
The AWS 900+ is housed at Lee Jackson Mastering Labs in Austin while Jabour finalizes plans for his studio/museum. “The AWS 900+ is absolutely transparent, it’s beautiful,” said Jackson. “Being able to touch back and forth between the DAW and analogue is absolutely great. It’s the same to go from record to play back—just effortless. With many consoles there’s a lot of patching, whereas with the AWS 900+, all the patching is pretty much preset for you. Plus, you can set up all kinds of templates, which is really great.”
