The AWS (Analogue Workstation System) reinvented the professional production console by combining classic SSL SuperAnalogue console technology with comprehensive DAW control hardware in a single work surface. The AWS is now used by leading international recording artists, producers and engineers and has shaped expectations for session workflow within today's and indeed tomorrows' production environments.

Designed for mid-scale commercial recording and production facilities, the AWS is available with 16 inputs (AWS 916), 24 inputs (AWS 924) or 48 inputs (AWS 948) within a compact 24 fader frame. The AWS 916 has 16 mic pre's, the AWS 924 and 948 have 24 mic pre's. The AWS 916 & 924 have mono channel strips and the AWS has stereo/dual mono channel strips that offer a second line level input per channel to provide 48 summing channels. All models deliver pristine SuperAnalogue summing, 24 ultra-clean SSL SuperAnalogue mic pre's, classic SSL dual curve EQ on every channel, two assignable SSL Dynamics channels, legendary Stereo Buss Compressor, TotalRecall and full 5.1 monitoring. In addition to on board classic SSL automation, both models also feature SSL's A-FADA system where motorized analogue faders follow DAW automation data.

The AWS also features Ethernet connectivity for streamlined hardware control over your entire digital audio workstation environment. AWS delivers elegant, ergonomic physical control with dedicated heavy duty DAW transport, V-Pot multifunction encoders with position indicating LED's, Digital Scribble Strips, DAW fader mode, global and channel routing control and built-in TFT display for advanced plug-in editing. Project session management is kept simple through SSL's proprietary Logictivity interface.

SSL delta-Control
The unique new SSL console automation system unites the very best of automation in the analogue console domain with DAW based workflow. delta-Control is a native AAX/RTAS/VST/VST3 plug-in that allows automation of AWS as if it were a DAW Plug-in. The automation system in the DAW is used to record and playback control data from the faders and switches on the console as an alternative to using the SSL legacy automation system in the console. The delta-Ctrl plug-in is inserted into a DAW mixer audio channel. The plug-in then receives and sends control data from an assigned AWS channel, VCA or Master fader via a high speed Ethernet Network connection. Audio on the DAW track passes through the plug-in slot unprocessed so the plug-in can be combined with other DAW plug-ins. The console Fader, mutes and relevant switches are represented as plug-in parameters in a delta-Ctrl plug-in GUI and their automation data is recorded to the automation lane of the selected DAW channel. In playback the plug-in converts the stored automation data from the DAW into delta-Ctrl messages and routes these back to the console via the SSL Logictivity Network connection.

Automation data can be viewed and edited as normal plug-in data in the DAW tracks. The console Fader Absolute and Trim values are saved using the same dB law as your selected DAW automation so that the ĎPaste Specialí command can be used to copy existing DAW fader data into the plug-in. delta-Ctrl retains all the key operational elements of SSLís Signature Mix System with much loved features such as JOIN, REVISE, MOTORS OFF and SNAP Override all actioned from dedicated front panel switches. The MOTORS OFF mode offers the full non-moving fader SSL VCA mix experience as preferred by key industry re-mixers. A new MOTORS OFF, Touch Write mode emulates the SSL G Series Mix system Immediate Pickup (IP) option.
