Chris Lord-Alge’s Mix LA Installs Solid State Logic ORIGIN for Studio D
As one of the most prolific and consistently successful mix engineers of our time, Chris Lord-Alge’s work is recognized by his industry peers and appreciated by music fans around the world. A five-time Grammy Award winner who has had chart-topping success with artists such as Green Day, Tina Turner, Halestorm, and many others, Lord-Alge has favored Solid State Logic consoles for decades — ever since the early 80s SSL 4000 E Series console where he crafted early hits at Unique Recording in NYC. Mix LA’s SL 4064 G Series, originally installed in 1986, is used daily in his A room. Most recently, he has acquired a new ORIGIN analogue mixing console, situated at his brand-new Studio D.
“When ORIGIN first arrived at AES ‘19 and was first unveiled to my brother Tom and I, we both knew that this was going to be a big winner for us,” says Lord-Alge, who says the layout of ORIGIN offers perfect workflow and ergonomics. “It gives you 32 upper and lower channels with EQs and sends, and in the center section and you can mount a UF8 controller for automation. But the great thing about ORIGIN is that it is a classic analogue desk with great sounding mic preamps.”
