SSL Plug-in Controller

UC1 is a hardware plug-in controller like no other. Dedicated knob-per-function Channel EQ and
Dynamics controls, center section featuring full Bus Compressor controls, and authentic moving-
coil gain reduction meter combines to offer the most creative, intuitive, and ultimately effective
way of controlling SSL 360°-enabled plug-ins within your DAW session.

Console ergonomics and workflow

SSL production tools are the benchmark for studio ergonomics and workflow. UC1 draws on
decades of analog and digital console design to develop an intelligent and deeply integrated
SSL plug-in control surface that lets you focus on your production goals and not the process.

UC1’s layout of encoders, switches and color groupings offer professional SSL console
ergonomics seamlessly integrated with our most advanced channel strip and Bus Compressor
plug-ins to date. Multiple parameters can be controlled simultaneously and precisely, equipping
you with a production tool that nurtures muscle memory, provides unmatched sonic flexibility
, and inspires operator confidence.

Every detail of UC1 has been implemented to keep you in control and informed of how your mix
is reacting to processing. Dedicated front panel encoders accompanied by an on-board hi-res
display allow you to move quickly between instances of 360°-enabled channel strips and Bus
Compressors directly from the surface. You can also load presets, as well as alter the channel
strip process order.

SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer

At the heart of the UC1 system is the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer, a place to view and control all of
your 360°-enabled channel strips and Bus Compressors in one place. The 360° Plug-in Mixer
offers an efficient way of interacting with multiple plug-ins simultaneously, further bridging the
gap between console and in-the-box workflow.

SSL 4KB, Channel Strip 2 & Bus Compressor 2 Plug-ins

UC1 provides dedicated controls of all key 4 KB and Channel Strip 2 plug-in parameters. EQ,
Filters, Compressor, and Gate/Expander controls offer the same configuration and visual
feedback as found on large-format SSL consoles, allowing you to quickly home in on your
channel processing sweet spot.

At the heart of UC1 are Bus Compressor controls. Its authentic layout and metering feels like
you’re controlling a hardware bus comp built into the center section of an SSL console. With a
classic moving coil gain reduction meter as found on SSL consoles since the 1970’s, it
represents the Bus Compressors time constants and gain reduction characteristics perfectly for
producers and engineers to know exactly how it’s reacting with their instruments, subgroups
and of course mix bus.

Perpetual plug-in licenses for SSL 4 KB, Channel Strip 2, and Bus Compressor 2 plug-ins are
included with UC1. Expertly modeled, the 4KB plug-in is an authentic emulation of the SL 4000
B channel strip – full of tone, punch, and rich non-linear analog character. Channel Strip 2 is a
fully-featured channel strip, based on digital modeling of the EQ and Dynamics curves from the
legendary XL 9000 K SuperAnalogue console. Bus Compressor 2 is the ultimate SSL Bus
Compressor plug-in, featuring additional Ratio, Attack, and Release options and oversampling.

added all the time. Featuring our legendary consoles, compressors, equalizers, reverbs &
