With 50 years’ experience defining the sound of the world’s top music artists, film and TV audio, Solid State Logic introduces SSL CONNEX, a high-quality, portable USB microphone for conferencing, content creation, and music recording. Featuring an advanced quad microphone array with four specially defined user modes, SSL CONNEX enhances sound quality whether you’re in a group conference call, online in a coffee shop chatting with friends, or recording vocals and instruments wherever inspiration strikes.

CONNEX is a technology powerhouse in a sleek portable form factor. Its high-quality, precision quad microphone array is powered by sophisticated studio-quality sound processing and professional quality 24-bit / 96 kHz converters. Four tailored user modes are available to make sure you sound the best in any scenario. For people pushing the boundaries of creation, advanced immersive mode is also available:

  • Blue: Music mode: Designed for a group of musicians positioned around CONNEX, Music mode allows creativity as a group to be captured in all its collaborative glory. CONNEX intelligently alters the sensitivity of the microphone array to reduce the noise floor and unwanted background sound in the recording or live stream. Combine this with CONNEX’s sophisticated studio-quality processing and you’re on the way to a great sounding track.
  • Magenta: Vocal mode: Vocal mode is for when inspiration hits and you just have to record that performance. Utilizing legendary SSL EQ and dynamics processing algorithms to enhance your recording or live stream, Vocal mode will reject sound from the sides and rear of SSL CONNEX making your performance absolutely sing.
  • White: Solo mode: Optimized for a single sound source, e.g., conference / WFH calls or live streaming with a single presenter. CONNEX is optimized for speech coming from the front while reducing unwanted sound from back and side faces. Struggling to make clear calls in a busy office, café or airport lounge, ‘Solo mode’ is the answer.
  • Green: Group mode: Designed for multiple sound sources e.g., round table conference call or live streaming with multiple presenters, CONNEX’s quad microphone array and automatic smart mixer means all presenters are clearly heard and unwanted background noise isn’t.
  • Immersive: All four modes feature an advanced immersive recording setting. This allows you to access each of the four individual mic sources for the purpose of immersive and spatial recordings or broadcasts.
