Tangerine Automation Interface FOR SSL E/g
The one that started it all! Designed for the world-renowned SSL® 4k/6k/8k E/G analog audio consoles, it supports both VCA and Ultimation boards.
This classic console was sold with one of the best integrated mix automation systems. Alas, as technology has evolved over decades, its massive proprietary automation computer has become obsolete and is unreliable for continued production use. Enter the Tangerine Automation Interface!
Instead of producing an updated automation computer, we designed something even better: a "easy to install" interface that communicates with your existing workstation over today’s most common digital protocols (USB, Ethernet and MIDI). Our AAX, AU, VST plug-ins allows to use the SSL faders to write or read the automation directly in/from your favourite DAW. Out of the box (OTB) mix automation data is now part of your DAW project, reducing the complexity of seprate automation softwares, shorthening the learning time and simplifying your workflow.
The Tangerine Automation Interface is a modular system customizable to your unique console
The Tangerine Automation Interface replaces your existing SSL® computer and is configurable for up to 96 VCA or ULTIMATION Automation channels in a 2U 19-inch rack-mounted unit. It's power efficient fanless design is totally silent, the chassis can be either installed in the machine room or in the control room near the console. External accessory ports allow for optional add-on features and futureproofing.
An improvement over SSL® Total Recall®, the Tangerine Automation Interface’s Recall-iT feature allows you to create and recall snapshots for all channel knobs and switches on your console (compression, EQ and sends recall). Snapshots can be loaded at any time allowing a consistent match of every channel to previous mix settings and can be displayed from the Injektor 2 software running on your macOS or Windows computer.
NOTE: Recall-iT requires your SSL® console to have recall multiplexers installed. Please verify that your console has the required hardware installed as certain boards are not equipped with Recall-iT compatible hardware. Not sure if your console has the required hardware? Contact us and we'll walk you through the verification process.
Bring your SSL® E/G center keyboard and transport keys back to life. Our Keyboard decoder allows direct access to global automation functions and modes. Supports DAW transport remote control, including markers and locate points.
Master Fader Adapter
This adapter removes the need to share an automation lane between VCA8 and the master fader; it allows for simultanious automation of both.
Use your iPad or tablet as a recall interface. The web server allows for any device connected to your Wifi network to access the recall interface.
COMING SOON! Motorized FADER pack
You heard that right, we’re bringing modern, silent, high-quality motorised faders to the center VCA group of your VCA SSL® console.
