SSL; Shed of Your Dreams

http://www.gearwire.com/media/ssl-sh...our-dreams.mov

For some reason I couldn't stop laughing after I viewed this guy. Sounds like a car salesman, or even worse: an infomercial.
But I guess that's his job

Cool idea. Looks like SSL is using their name to try & get a piece of Digidesign's pie. Anyone actually use the AWS 900+ console? How is it?




oooooh.... Canadian Wood..

I love it!
I'd build a second shed for the band and get on with it!
Excellent
$250k
...er... maybe next year

the original shed:








I think it is *slightly* bigger and has a *few* more gear than the $250,000 "shed of dreams"



I kind of feel sorry for SSL. They went from selling $250k-$1Mill consoles to pro studios, to sell now $250k home_studio packages to new millionaries (or to their sons).
But shouldn't they sell the shed in pairs? One for the AWS900+ and the other to park the Ferrari in (that shed was originally a garage)

Fortunately, SSL still manufacture a couple of very fine products.

Don't feel sorry for SSL, feel sorry for the Music industry....
SSL could have gone out of business, but they adjusted to the market changes instead.
Don't worry, they know what they are doing... although i'm not a big fan of these "Dream combos" neither.

Can't say I've ever dreamed of a shed. Amazing things happen when a musician becomes an owner of a manufacturer. I guess this is proof of that.

Awesome Shed... I mean studio, jindrich.
I love the forests of trees it's nestled in. Looks relaxing.

Now if ssl could offer all that at around 250k...

Nice pics. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to post the real shed pics.

Man I luv it, if I win the lottery (hard-pressed as I don't play) that shed is mine! (or if I sell a few more songs )

900+

The 900+ you were wondering about. Awesome board. The shed would just be a convenience, but that board in itself....one of my favorites Ive ever put my hands on. Its easy to navigate, sound great, and it has the infamous "Awesome button (master stereo compressor)." Only bad thing I can say about it is the fact that there is only 2 dynamic processors on the board and you can only assign one of each at the same time. Wish there were more than that. You can buy an extra 8(I think its 8), but for the price of the board there should be more. All in all, I love this board though.

Wow!

The aws 900 is tiny! A lot smaller than I thought......, maybe would save you on parts instead of buying a used 4,6, or 9000 series tho!
