Legendary SSL Workflow for Your DAW
Empower your in-the-box productions with the legendary SSL console workflow courtesy of the Solid State Logic UC1 Advanced Plug-in Controller. With its knob-per-function architecture, the UC1 gives you tactile control over SSL’s renowned Channel Strip and Bus Compressor native plug-ins (included with the purchase of the UC1), and it provides visual feedback via an army of illuminated LED rings. Instantiate Channel Strip on every track in your session — along with a Bus Compressor on your mix bus — and enjoy the experience of working on an SSL 4000 series desk in the comfort of your home or project studio. Boasting a rugged professional design with an all-metal enclosure and a brushed, anodized top plate, the UC1 is both attractive and durable. Plus, it’s simple to integrate into your recording system — it requires only a single USB connection. Interacting with the UC1 is highly intuitive as well. A high-resolution LCD display and selection encoders allow you to effortlessly navigate between instances of the plug-ins in your DAW, and you can instantly recall presets directly from the front panel. Representing the next evolution in DAW control surfaces, the SSL UC1 Advanced Plug-in Controller will surely invigorate your in-the-box workflow.
SSL Channel Strip: iconic SSL E-Series and G-Series EQ and dynamics
The SSL Channel Strip lets you select between two of SSL’s most iconic console EQ sections: the E-Series and G-Series. The E-Series EQ has an aggressive bite perfect for bringing out the crack of a snare or adding intelligibility to a lead vocal; the G-Series has a more restrained and focused character, great for carving out EQ pockets to make instruments sit more cohesively in a mix. With both the E-Series and the G-Series, you can apply liberal amounts of EQ without adding distortion to the signal, especially in the low frequencies. This means you can add a massive thump to a kick or bass while keeping things tight, clean, and focused.
Simple to use but extremely powerful, the SSL Channel Strip compressor is a Swiss Army knife dynamics processor. With its familiar Ratio, Threshold, and Release controls, dialing in the ideal compression setting is a snap. And whether you’re subtly reining in an acoustic guitar or squashing a set of overheads, the SSL Channel Strip compressor yields a flattering and musical tone.
Glue your mixes together with the SSL Bus Compressor
Few pieces of gear are as universally revered as the SSL G-Series center section bus compressor, which has been faithfully re-created in the SSL Bus Compressor native plug-in. Celebrated for its ability to glue a mix together to make it "sound like a record," the SSL Bus Compressor has a distinct musical response that retains the dynamic integrity of a mix even at higher compression ratios.
SSL 360° software: the brains of the operation
Operationally, the UC1 works seamlessly with major DAWs — Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Cubase, Nuendo, Studio One, and Ableton Live — three of which can be connected concurrently. SSL’s dedicated 360° software for macOS and Windows handles configuration with your DAW(s) for both the UC1 and the SSL UF8 advanced DAW controller, allowing for multi-surface configurations, the customization of certain user keys, and a global view of all of the SSL native plug-ins on a single screen. What’s more, you’ll never lose any brilliant moves, because SSL 360° automatically saves any changes you make in the background (and of course, you can always undo). It also manages software and firmware updates automatically.
