We got quite excited when we saw the picture of Solid State Logic´s new Mynx - at first glance, it looked like it might be a self-contained processing system for computer users. However, it turns out that it´s simply a chassis that can host a pair of SSL´s X-Rack modules.

These modules are based on the same circuit design as SSL´s Duality and AWS 900+ consoles and promise to deliver the company´s SuperAnalogue sound. Eight are currently available, and the Mynx enables you to combine two of them.

The Mynx itself is priced at 595/£294, but each of the X-Rack modules costs considerably more. This being the case, the most affordable way for computer-based producers to get their hands on genuine SSL processing is to buy the Duende Mini, though of course, this is a software-rather than hardware-based system.
