Solid State Logic is pleased to announce that Jason Kelly has been appointed Product Manager for its new Live console. With a 25-year career that spans live sound production, live event systems design and implementation and technical support management, Kelly has developed a solid understanding of the key aspects of the pro audio industry. In his new role, he will spearhead the recent introduction of SSL’s ‘Live’ console, which brings to the stage the industry standard, sonic legacy of the SSL brand.
Kelly’s understanding of the live sound market makes him the ideal candidate for the position. He will build on his knowledge, as well as his sales and technical support experience, to help dealers and key customers understand all of the benefits of this innovative live-sound product. Working closely with SSL’s product design and development team, Kelly will also help to define product requirements and marketing strategies into the future.

His other recent roles include UK Sales and Support Manager for MKT, Technical Director for CTI Live Technical Engineering, a company involved with designing and implementing all aspects of live event production; and Technical Manager for Staras Technical Productions, which produces high-level live presentations.
“I am truly delighted to be working for a world-renowned company such as SSL,” says Kelly. “My years of experience in the live sound industry offer me the great opportunity to recognise the needs of the customers in that market. I foresee a strong future for SSL in this arena and look forward to helping the company grow its customer base.”
