SSL Honoured With Two TEC Awards
Solid State Logic was honoured with two Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards at the recent 27th annual awards ceremony.
SSL's AWS 948 won the Outstanding Technical Achievement award for ‘Large Format Console Technology’ and the company's Nucleus won the same award in the ‘Small Format Console Technology’ category.
Several hundred industry professionals gathered at the Hilton Anaheim for the sit-down awards ceremony, emceed by bass player Will Lee. Funkmeister Bootsy Collins presented the Nucleus award to Jim Motley, Head of Business, Workstation Partner Products at SSL and legendary audio engineer and producer Eddie Kramer presented the AWS 948 award to Dan Duffell, SSL’s Head of Marketing.
“We are honoured to receive these two awards,” says Piers Plaskitt, CEO Solid State Logic, Inc. “Our engineers and product designers work hard to create music production tools for our customers and it’s always reassuring when people tell us they like what we’ve made! It’s also great to see the Tec Awards reach its 27th year and we heartily support the work of Hillel Resner and his team in encouraging excellence in the audio industry.”
