Faith No More producer and bassist, Bill Gould, discusses the SSL Matrix and the recording process behind Faith No More's new album in Sound On Sound’s “Recording Sol Invictus”  feature.


“I have an SSL Matrix console, which I got about three or four years ago, and I’ve really been happy with it.  Its really cool for monitoring with the drums.  I had all my preamps hard-patched in already.  It actually sounds really good for mixing, and I like it better than mixing in the box.  We mixed the ‘Motherfucker’ single there and we used the Matrix for that and it was great.  It’s also not too big and it’s just a really great usable thing that actually does what I need”.

The SSL Matrix is the ideal console/controller for a hybrid production studio. It is the most elegant solution available today for those who wish to incorporate the sonic advantages of SSL summing and a collection of boutique analogue mic pre's & processors into their DAW centred studio workflow.
