Solid State Logic Captures TEC Award for ORIGIN 16

ORIGIN 16 Wins Outstanding Technical Achievement in Large Format Console technology category

Solid State Logic was recognized for Outstanding Technical Achievement during the 39th Annual TEC Awards, held on January 27th at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. ORIGIN 16, the sibling of the ORIGIN 32, captured the top spot in the Large Format Console Technology category.

Now in its 39th year, the TEC Awards are widely regarded as the highest honour dedicated to the pro audio and sound recording industry, recognizing outstanding performance by the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and multimedia.

Phil Wagner, North American Senior Vice President of SSL, commented: “It is once again a great honour to be recognized for Outstanding Technical Achievement in such a competitive category. ORIGIN 16 represents the pinnacle of what is possible in console design in such a small footprint, perfect for the modern hybrid studio. We would like to thank our customers around the world, as well as our partners and staff — all of whom help us continue to push the envelope of innovation in all that we do.”


ORIGIN 16 delivers SSL’s sonic excellence and advanced workflow at a price point that is truly revolutionary. The 16 channel, in-line analogue console packs an unparalleled degree of features into a compact footprint, making it perfect for project studios, educational institutions, commercial facilities and more. The console’s extraordinary sound, intelligent design and advanced routing options that make it ideal for the modern hybrid studio.


Its simple signal flow and layout make it easy to understand and use, while powerful features such as channel direct outputs and precision bargraph meters make it an ideal companion for even the highest quality converters and the most demanding professional production applications. Further, its innovative modular centre section allow ORIGIN 16 to adapt to different applications — for instance a tracking console with additional boutique analogue processing to its 19” rack centre section, or a more digital/analogue hybrid approach with SSL’s UF8 Advanced DAW Controller — all of which are easily reached from the listening position.
