Solid State Logic has launched its first dedicated audio interfaces as part of a new personal studio range. The SSL 2, and SSL 2+ are USB-powered interfaces with ‘class-leading’ mic preamps, legacy 4K an analogue enhancement mode inspired by classic SSL consoles, studio-quality monitoring and an SSL Production Pack software bundle.

Solid State Logic SSL 2+ interfaceThe SSL2 and SSL2+interfaces leverage the company’s heritage for project and personal recording set ups. Here the SSL 2 personal studio is optimised for individual singers, songwriters and media producers, the SSL 2+ collaborative studio provides expanded I/O for musicians working and recording together.

‘When SSL’s founder, Colin Sanders set about making his first mixing console in the early 1970s, he did so because every other console at the time fell short of his expectations and needs,’ says SSL Director of New Products, Niall Feldman. ‘Fast-forward 40 years, that same philosophy has inspired the team to create the SSL 2 and SSL 2+ for the personal studio market, and share some of that amazing technology in a new format.’

The 2-inpit/2-output SSL 2 packs in two analogue mic preamps with 192kHz/24-bit conversion, a single high-grade headphone output, easy-to-use monitor mix control for critical low-latency monitoring tasks, and balanced monitor outputs with a high dynamic range. In addition, the Legacy 4K mode – inspired by SSL’s 4000 series studio consoles – offers extra analogue ‘character and sparkle’ to input sources. The included SSL Production Pack software bundle, which includes some of SSL’s own studio-grade Native plug-ins, gives you an incredible arsenal of tools for refining recordings.

The SSL2+ feature set builds in a production hub for those wanting to collaborate, with an additional headphone output with independent monitor mix, Midi I/O, and additional un-balanced outputs for DJ Mixers.

‘We focused on developing the best sounding and performing audio interfaces at this price point, and then raising the bar again with features and add-ons that make a significant difference when creating,’ says Andy Jackson, SSL Studio Product Manager. ‘Our attention to excellence even goes down to the use of Neutrik connectors and Alps pots throughout, because anything else is a compromise. We are fortunate to have a phenomenal heritage of product, technology and successful artists to draw on during development, so if you’re starting out in recording music, why wouldn’t you start with the best?’

The SSL 2 is priced at £149.99 (+VAT)/US$229.99 (+tax)/€179.99 (+tax) and the SSL 2+ at £199.99 (+VAT)/US$279.99 (+tax)/€239.99 (+tax).
