SSL 2 | More Than an Audio Interface
Solid State Logic studio tools have been at the heart of music production for over 40 years, helping world-famous artists, producers and studios to create so many of the records you’ve come to know and love. Now, with SSL 2 and SSL 2+, you get all that hit-making know-how in your own personal studio.
Beautifully SSL-designed analog microphone preamps and immaculate 24/192 kHz conversion for studio-quality recording, pristine monitoring paths and high-performance headphone amps for crystal-clear playback and an intuitive front-panel low-latency monitor mix control, so you’re always ready to capture the next great performance. The ‘Legacy 4K’ mode – inspired by classic SSL consoles, gives you the ability to add extra analog character and sparkle to your sources when needed. To top it all off, the included ‘SSL Production Pack’ software bundle, which includes some of SSL’s own studio-grade Native plug-ins and a carefully selected range of DAWs, samples, loops and virtual instruments from industry leaders, gives you an incredible arsenal of tools for creating your next hit.

Legacy 4K SSL Analog Enhancement
The first thing engaging the Legacy 4K button will do is introduce a ‘forward’, yet musical high-frequency EQ boost, something which 4000-series EQs are known and loved for. 4K consoles are synonymous with imparting certain ‘mojo’ to signals passing through them. Using modern components, SSL have created a circuit that injects a controlled amount of finely-tuned, sweet-sounding harmonic distortion into the signal path. Add instant SSL magic at the push of a button!
