Blame; finding his way with SSL X-Desk

With a successful career that started when he was only 17 years old, Blame became not only a legendary star in the Drum’n’Bass scene, but also as one of the most demanded producers out there. He has mixed and remixed albums for world famous artists such as UB40, Moving Shadow and The Jackson 5, and toured the globe with LTJ Bukem. Currently producing tracks for Jocelyn Brown’s and Ed Drewett’s new albums, Blame is releasing one of his own, “Blame The Music”.

Professionally working for over 10 years in private studios, Blame found with the X-Desk a way to bring SSL’s depth, warmth and clarity to his own home studio. “The wife wouldn’t be happy if I shipped a 40-channel G-Series into the house, so X-Desk was the perfect solution!” comments Blame. The compact X-desk fulfills all the essentials of the audio mixing process while being easily integrated into an existing studio and used as an ergonomically refined desktop mixer. The X-desk is hand-built in the UK with all metal chassis and high quality controls and components.

The X-Desk features:

  • SuperAnalogue™ – analogue purity at the highest level
  • 8x dual input Mono Line channels : 16 channel mixdown
  • 8x Insert Send/Returns on channels
  • Stereo CUE and 2 Mono Auxiliary Sends
  • Cascade with X-Rack and other X-Desks for bigger systems
  • Talkback – for artist communication
  • Dim & Cut buttons
  • Independent Main and Alternate stereo monitor outputs
  • SSL Stereo Mix Bus with External summing and Inserts
  • 2x Stereo Returns with Level, Pan and Bus assignment
  • iJack front panel input for portable playback devices
  • High quality internal PSU
  • D-Sub Channel I/O connection for studio integration
  • 19" Rack mount ears included

    The Solid State Logic X-Desk (8-Ch SuperAnalogue Mixer) is currently priced at $2,899.00.
