Underworld puts the SSL L500 centre-stage

The console joins founder-member Rick Smith on stage as a fast, versatile, creative instrument— combining old-school dub mixing techniques with the best in performance technology.

To Smith, live performance is about, “Being in the moment and having absolutely no choice about that fact… Whatever your state of mind is, this is it… This is the moment that matters.”

To bring the “moment” to the audience and shape the Underworld sound, Smith uses a wide variety of dynamic mixing techniques – cuts, solos, automation snapshots, faders, effects, and so on, “It’s about deconstruction and construction and reconstruction and rearrangement,” he explains. “That to me was always the best kind of dub… that so excited me back in my twenties.”
