Product Description

Here’s What SSL Say About the SSL 2:

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, you get all that hit-making know-how in your own personal studio.

With beautifully SSL-designed analogue microphone preamps and immaculate 24/192kHz conversion for studio-quality recording, pristine monitoring path and high-performance headphone amp for crystal-clear playback and an intuitive front-panel low-latency monitor mix control, 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 analogue 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 Analogue Enhancement

SSL has a history of innovation in analogue electronics and console design. Whether it’s the sound of our classic EQ ‘242’ and ‘292’ EQ circuits, the punch of the legendary SSL G-Series Bus Compressor or the incredible bandwidth and sonic accuracy of our ground-breaking SuperAnalogue™ designed mic amps and consoles, we’re always moving forward. Nothing highlights our dedication to the science than the recent Fusion and SiX product, where we have taken our analogue obsession to another level.

However, sometimes the raw sound of a microphone can sound a little ‘uninspiring’ or lifeless and you need something to bring it to life.  This is where the Legacy 4K button comes in. Legacy 4K is an all-new analogue enhancement effect, inspired by the character of an SSL 4000 series console (often referred to as ‘4K’). With the Legacy 4K button, we’ve distilled 2 essential characteristics of the 4K sound into a single-circuit, which you can engage when you need to breath some life into ‘boring’ or ‘dull’ sounding input sources:

High-Frequency EQ Boost

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.

Subtle Harmonic Distortion

4K consoles are synonymous with a 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.

The only gripe I have about this is that I think it could've been built with some sort of light to tell you that phantom power is engaged. I mean, you should be double-checking before you plug anything in but I can see how it would be an easy, and potentially costly, mistake to make.

Great sound. The 4K button DOES make a difference (love it when recording vocals). Highly recommended against the other interfaces on the same price range.
