SSL for the Home or Portable Studio

Solid State Logic has been one of the dominant forces in audio recording for over forty years, with a legacy of superior large-format consoles, studio outboard gear, and world-class plugin processors. Now, you can have the iconic SSL sound in your home studio with the SSL2 USB audio interface. The SSL2 comes stocked with a set of pro-grade preamps and stunning 24-bit/192 kHz converters. A unique 4K Legacy mode allows you to add SSL 4000 series analog console magic to your recordings with the push of a button, and an extensive production pack includes the software you need to get started recording instantly. Livestreamers will certainly appreciate the built-in loopback functionality for mixing your voice with other audio sources before they hit your stream. Recording artists at City Music are big fans of all things SSL, and we’re excited to offer the SSL2 — an affordable interface with a legendary sound!

Matchless SSL sonics and superior build quality

The SSL2 interface features the pristine sound and superior build quality for which SSL is known. Equipped with two class-leading microphone/line/instrument inputs and 24-bit/192 kHz converters from industry-renowned manufacturer AKM, the SSL2 delivers pro-studio sonics in a small form factor. Housed in a sturdy, attractive chassis and featuring Neutrik connectors and Alps pots, the SSL2 can withstand numerous trips between remote recording locations. The front panel design provides an intuitive workflow with easy-to-read meters and an ergonomically satisfying feel. And, its high-current headphone amp ensures accurate monitoring, so you can be sure that what you’ve recorded is exactly what you’re hearing.

Legacy 4K button for instant analog mojo

SSL built their reputation on their celebrated large format consoles, through which countless hit records and Grammy-award winning albums have flowed. In particular, the SSL 4000 series console has inspired generations of musicians, producers, and engineers with its undeniable analog mojo. The SSL2 brings that signature 4000 series sound into your project studio with its Legacy 4K feature, which, with the push of a button, imparts the preamps with two essential characteristics of the 4000 series signal chain. The first thing you’ll hear is a musical, high-frequency EQ boost that will push your vocal or instrument forward in the sound field, for a deeper, more dimensional sonic profile. Then, you’ll notice a subtle addition of harmonic distortion that sweetens the sound and adds personality to the signal. For small format recording interfaces, there is nothing quite like the Legacy 4K button, available on the SSL2.

Bundled SSL Native and third-party software

To get you started recording right out of the box, the SSL2 ships with a comprehensive production pack that includes Celemony Melodyne; IK Multimedia AmpliTube SE; Native Instruments Hybrid Keys and Komplete Start; Ableton Live Lite; AAS Session Bundle plug-ins; and 1.5GB worth of samples from Loopcloud. In addition to this formidable software suite, the SSL2 comes bundled with two SSL Native channel strips: Vocalstrip 2 and Drumstrip. With Vocalstrip’s four vocal-specific processors — De-esser, De-ploser, 3-Band EQ, and Compander — you can easily achieve an articulate and impactful vocal sound. And Drumstrip provides five carefully selected processing tools — including transient shaper, drum gate, high- and low-frequency enhancers, and the classic Listen Mic compressor — to add clarity, punch, and heft to any drum recording. Finally, Solid State Logic provides three months of free access to SSL Complete, Auto-Tune Unlimited, and Arcade by Output — a trio of subscriptions that puts the plug-ins of the pros right at your fingertips!
