The SSL 2 is here, and AP couldn't resist the temptation to get his hands on one. In this episode, we dive deep into SSL's foray into USB interfaces. And in our ears anyway, it's a winner. For the tech nerds, here's the manufacturer's blurb...
SSL 2 is more than just an audio interface, it's the centre of your new Solid State Logic studio. Class-leading mic preamps, Legacy 4K analogue enhancement, studio-quality monitoring and the incredible SSL Production Pack software bundle. SSL have been designing cutting-edge mixing consoles and processing tools for the world's finest recording studios for over four decades. Now you get all that hit-making know-how in your own personal studio.
The SSL 2 features SSL's class leading mic preamps, with the best noise performance (-130.5 dB EIN) and a huge gain range of 62dB! The secret sauce for sonic magic comes in the form of SSL's Legacy 4K analogue enhancement, an all-analogue enhancement effect, inspired by the character of the legendary 4000-series console. On top of that you also receive the SSL production pack, which includes an exclusive collection of the industry's finest DAWs, Virtual Instruments, Plug-ins, Samples and Loops. On the hardware side, the SSL 2 gives you studio-grade monitor outputs, a high-current output headphone amp, AKM converters, Alps pots and Neutrik connectors. The SSL 2 is also USB bus-powered for greater convenience.
