SSL buys Sydec Audio; adds software development

Solid State Logic (SSL) has purchased Sydec Audio Engineering NV, developers of the Soundscape range of workstation products.

The Soundscape acquisition brings significant PC platform development experience to SSL, a maker of high-end analog and digital audio consoles. The Soundscape product line currently includes workstation hardware and software, PCI audio cards, plug-ins, iBox audio interfaces and a range of accessories.

Reflecting pro audio's shift to software-based products, over the past year SSL's product added controllers, analog and digital rack processors and plug-ins.

The companies said the relationship opens new commercial channels and allows a broader range of SSL and Soundscape products to be distributed around the world, delivering SSL's established products to a wider range of users.
