SSL Six Mix...

Summed this mix through the Six tonight. The G buss compressor is slammed and my ears are fried lol. How would any of y’all use the g buss? I started just with a little, then ended up slamming it. Idk, I’ll try again tomorrow.

No offense but it sounds like your ears were fried. How loud are you monitoring?

Haha none taken. They were for sure. I was monitoring, going back and forth between medium and low volumes since it was so late. I definitely need better treatment in my room. I think my ears get fatigued and I start over compressing lol. Also just need a lot more practice at mixing.

Have you looked into Sonarworks for your room/headphones? Changed the game for me and many others for sure..

It sounds great I dig the vibe.

Your track reminds me of a very well missed time in the New York 1990's underground hip hop era. Keep up the music freedom and expression in the arts. Cheers!
PS I'm loving that big drum SSL sound you got going on your kicks.

Thanks! Means a lot! 90s east coast flavor is my biggest influence. Preciate it big time.

Ah, a fellow East Coast boom-bapper, how refreshing!

I have the SiX now and prior to that, I was using the G Compressor on a 4000 console for a couple of years.

The settings on the SiX's G Comp are fixed at 4:1, 30ms attack, 100ms release. With these settings, I won't often use more than 2-4 db of gain reduction. It's really up to you though. There are no rules.

I'm purchasing mine tomorrow! For the people in here that have a Six, How do you like it and how much has your sound been enhanced?

I love it. I just love having my sounds hit circuitry. I feel more depth and punch definitely. And the two channel strips/pres are lovely. SSL knocked it out

Same here it gives a bigger sound undoubtedly.
It seems to make the sound more solid and more rounded when using the summing feature.

I just sold my Lynx Hilo. While patiently waiting for my Aurora (n) 8 to arrive, I'm using a simple Y-cable from my MacBook into stereo channel 3/4 on the SiX.

Even with the bus compressor bypassed, the SiX gives my 2-track a "bigger" sound. I'm not sure what's going on inside this box but I like it!

Once I get my Aurora (n) and some Mogami cables, I'll post some comparisons!

It will be quite nice once you use the summing. Keep in mind you only get six inputs through the back of the SSL magomi port. With my apogee Rosetta 800 I get 1-6 I loose 7 and 8. So to recover I use My apogee rosetta 200 2XLR outs and go into the SSL Six input channels 1&2 to recover channels 7 and 8. With this the headroom is much nicer and you can hear a little more separation of the vocals and instruments.

Hang on, Mogami is just the name of the brand of cabling I'm using (Mogami Gold). You're probably referring to the DB25 cables and the SSL DB25 port. I'm not actually using straight DB25 cables, I'm using DB25 to TRS, giving me eight 1/4" jacks from the Aurora to go into 8 inputs of the SSL.

So you're saying that a DB25 to DB25 cable will give you 6 inputs if connected straight to the SSL SiX?

Is not 300ms release time?

Sorry I stand corrected. The SIX only give you 6 inputs through the DB25 cable connector input.
Cheers!!!
