No worries, mate. I'm glad to know that it hits the spot for somebody.

I'm waiting with eager anticipation for the next portable SSL device...

But would you buy one?

I did.

I don't get this no interface argument. Don't you already have an interface? I remember paying 2500 quid each for two X-Logic SSL channels. Now I paid 1200 quid for two SuperAnalog channels with faders and compressors and lots more. I already connected an Apogee Quartet which gets the output into my Nuendo setup.

I love it.

I would have thought that it was targeted to people with audio interfaces? Especially if you're recording using a DAW. I too am monitoring through my Apogee Quartet converters using Ableton Live. My setup is quite simple yet it has improved the vibe and sound I am now getting. Recording using the 2 micpres is wonderful given that they have compression and EQ. And the G-bus series is great.

Can anyone recommend a decent D-Sub brand for the SiX. I bought a couple of generic snakes but the DB25 connector’s thumbscrews don’t fit...

Some D-subs are fitted with metric M3 screws/threads, while others are imperial with UNC 4-40 screws/threads. I'm pretty sure the SSL uses UNCs...

So whatever your current cables have, the cheapest option is to buy some thumbscrews of the opposite type and fit them to the shells of your existing cables. :-)

Failing that, if you're in the UK, CPC do a set of pretty cost-effective breakout looms.

Hugh already summed up my feelings...

For location recording use it would obviously have been far more convenient to have the interface built in, so all you would have needed was a SiX and a laptop, rather than a SiX, a laptop, and an interface...
