Solid State Logic, the world’s leading manufacturer of analogue and digital audio consoles, is pleased to announce that in-demand mixer, producer, and seasoned Solid State Logic user Bruno Ellingham has installed an X-Desk, X-Logic G Series compressor, X-Panda summing system and Alpha-Link I/O system in his mix room within Massive Attack’s Bristol-based studio complex. Here he has put his newfound SSL combo to good use, giving Massive Attack’s seminal Blue Lines album a contemporary mixing makeover fit for its 20th anniversary re-release, matching the critically acclaimed recording with a truly 21st century take on its sound. All but two tracks from Blue Lines were originally mixed on a large-format SSL console in London’s long-gone Matrix Studios so Bruno turned to SSL again for the new project: “The new SSL technology enabled me to easily match the large-format console size of sound that we wanted.“
