A Brief History of Hybrid Studios’ SSL 4064G+ Console


Since opening in Winter 2013, the centerpiece of Hybrid’s recording studios has been the SSL 4064G+ in Studio A. Before arriving in Orange County, the console was a staple at Hit Factory, Trackin’ Place, Stretch Music, Soho Music, Cornerstone, and Woodland Ranch recording studios where it was integral to the recording of countless classic records. Notable artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Baby Face, Paul Simon, and Bruce Springsteen are part of its rich history stretching back several decades.


Regarded as one of the best mixing consoles ever made, our 4000G+ is also uniquely known for Ultimation, or moving fader automation, and Total Recall.  Hybrid’s SSL features a left-hand patch bay, plasma metering, 32 x E242 EQ, 32 x G292 EQ, and an original G+ Computer, complete with 3.5″ disk drives.

In coming months, the studio hopes to add the Tangerine from THD Labs, an SSL automation interface designed to replace the original computer and allow for greater flexibility using DAWs to control fader automation. The integration of this exciting new technology will be a treat for fans of the classic SSL console and Hybrid’s talented audio production clients in Southern California.
