Solid State Logic Nucleus2Solid State Logic has announced Nucleus2, an updated version of the Nucleus DAW controller, audio interface and studio monitoring hub. Nucleus2 responds to customer requests with the addition of talkback, main/mini monitor switching, a change to Dante connectivity and a new look.

A key addition is a talkback input with adjustable gain that feeds the headphone output. A large Talk button is added near the transport controls and the talk circuit can trigger a switchable -20dB Dim in the monitor outputs if desired. Another popular request was the addition of a second set of speaker outputs and a Mini monitor button in the centre section for comparing mixes on different systems.

The USB soundcard in Nucleus has been replaced with a new SSL Dante Network I/O audio interface. In a personal studio where direct connectivity to a DAW computer is required, Dante is a simple ‘single Ethernet cable’ alternative to Thunderbolt or USB, with latency of only 4ms when used with the supplied Dante Virtual Soundcard software running on a DAW computer. In a larger multi-space facility, Dante is an Audio-over-IP networking technology that facilitates low latency audio sharing between multiple computers. Dante enables users to combine audio devices from a wide range of audio manufacturers on a network and share audio between them. Nucleus2 has an inbuilt network switch with two Ethernet ports – one for connection to your computer, and one for adding other Dante devices to a set-up. The talkback signal can be switched to feed Channel 2 of the Dante interface for remote communication to other rooms over a network.

Nucleus2 retains much from the original Nucleus – high-quality motorised faders, metal chassis, big weighty jog wheel, heavy-duty transport buttons and simultaneous control of three DAWs. Nucleus2 is a complete solution for in-the-box producers whose world is centred around multiple projects, recall, fast workflow and creative inspiration.

Nucleus2 will be available from Q4 2016.
