DAW virtual mixers are modeled after “classic” analog mixing consoles. Take this SSL tour and learn how a full-blown classic Solid State Logic Duality console actually works...
Generation Gap! Some of us started our audio careers mixing on a real console in the analog world. However many of us, who use virtual mixers in our DAW of choice, have never touched or mixed on a real hardware-based mixing console. In this tutorial the experts at Singing Canary take you on a tour of a real SSL Duality console, explaining its signal flow from input to mix bus output!
First, you’ll learn about signal flow and the legendary SSL channel strips. Audio engineer Mike Nyandoro takes you on the journey explaining the audio processing and routing from start to finish. You’ll get to know the famous SSL Compressor. You’ll see and hear why software manufacturers from Waves to Reason's Propellerhead have modeled the awesome SSL EQs from their musical parametric bands to their distinctive lowpass filters and gates. Channel Sends, Busses, Pans, D-Pots and Channel faders are also covered in detail.
Mike continues with a guided tour of the SSL Duality's “Center Section” where all the hi-tech SSL magic happens. you’ll witness how hybrid digital/analog automation works and see how DAWs have translated that technology into the virtual world.
For a dose of reality, this tutorial concludes with a look at a smaller, more affordable mixer and explains how the SSL's multitude of high-end features translate to a small Mackie mixer. So jump aboard the SSL Express to see AND hear how a big time console works!

Helpful as I may be using this console at some point. I have the SSL plug in suite so this was of interest. Cheers
Great course! Very helpful for understanding consoles big and small.
Nice Tutorial, worth watching. explains how the "SSL Duality Console" functions very well. I also liked the tutorial on "Patchbays" as well.
I had always wanted to know more about the SSL and this course has granted that wish. It is both informative and easy to follow. Thank you for making this course available to your subscribers.
Very thorough tutorial, I learned a hell of a lot from these videos! Will definitely get more of these
I'm glad to have taken this course, not only to better understand signal flow on a console, but to better understand how the board is being used in other MPV tutorials.
I knew next to nothing about the SSL prior to taking this course. Now I feel that I have a solid grasp on all of the fundamentals. This course was fantastic.
Excellent overview of the Duality console that will accompany the operator's manual very well
Great tutorial for a overview on getting around the Duality. I own a 48 channel Duality SE so I would love these guys to do a tutorial on recording a signal using all the paths and different ways to record on the Duality. Plus some of the tricks that people are using on the Duality. Very cool guys keep up the good work.
