Not all Controllers are Equal

UF8 is the culmination of SSL’s 40+ year legacy of mastering production workflows and studio ergonomics built into generations of classic SSL consoles. This depth of understanding of studio production, combined with decades of engineering excellence, delivers a premium finish tactile USB controller that distills SSL workflow and quality.

Advanced Workflow

UF8 offers intuitive features that are developed from a true understanding of production workflow. Take ultimate control with simultaneous access to multiple DAW sessions, and precise navigation with a multi-purpose Master Encoder for DAW timeline access, track banking and mouse wheel emulation. 'Dual-purpose Selection Keys permit rapid access to select functions as well as solo and mute clearing in Pro Tools and Logic Pro. New CHANNEL and PLUG-IN control modes provide enhanced workflows for those using UF8 with Pro Tools, with easy access to sends and plug-ins without slowing down your creativity. 

Configurability

Each UF8 comes equipped with 43 assignable user keys set across 5 configurable banks, allowing users to configure their essential keyboard shortcuts and macros for total session control. Add multiple controllers to create your unique mixing system; build your perfect 16-24 channel music creation hub, or connect 4 UF8’s within a single system to create a 32-channel controller ideal for large post production or mixing sessions. Multiple UF8s can be chained together using the THRU port and provide a safe place for iLok storage. For perfect positioning, each UF8 includes an adjustable stand allowing for six different angles of elevation for user defined placement. 19” rack mount kits are also available for installation into an ORIGIN console center section or other 19” studio racking. 

360° Control

SSL’s 360° software application provides fast configuration and admin control of your UF8. Customise workflows and define up to 3 different DAW layers for simultaneous session control, with all changes managed without getting in the way of your productivity.

Featuring our legendary consoles, compressors, equalisers, reverbs & delays, Fusion processors and much more.

Mr Mark Adnitt22nd Mar 2024

The UF8 is really well made, works like a dream and looks the bee's knees. I am using Studio One as my DAW and have all 3 units UC1, UF1 & UF8, plus the SSL12 interface - all work beautifully together - the only thing is a lot of the buttons and controls are repeated with the UF1 & Uf8 having UF1 is a luxury really, so having the UF8 & UC1 together is ideal. overall the UF8 is a winner.
