The Solid State Logic UF8 Advanced DAW Controller is destined to become the centrepiece of your studio setup. Enhance your workflow and take the quality of your music, content creation and other audio up a notch with this 8-channel, fully expandable production powerhouse. Speed and precision is the name of the game here.
SSL have distilled over 40 years of engineering experience into the UF8. A suite of hands-on controls and systems ensures you've got the right tools for every kind of sonic scenario. You'll be zooming round a set of DAW files simultaneously via the multi-function master encoder (using it for track banking, emulating your mouse wheel and timeline access).
Finally, there's brand new plug-in and channel control modes - offering quick access to plug-ins and sends - and dual-purpose selection keys. These let you quickly utilise various functions without slowing you down.
If you like to configure your gear to suit your own personal preferences, the UF8 should be first on your wish list. You can use the 43 assignable user keys (spread over 5 banks) to set macros and keyboard shortcuts; controlling the minutiae of your sessions has never been so easy.
There's even scope to expand the UF8s surface. This can be done by connecting up to 4 of them together, creating an extended system for those larger mixing sessions.
SSL have developed a smart app - known as 360° software - that goes hand-in-hand with the UF8. With this, you'll be able to outline 3 unique DAW layers (allowing for control over multiple sessions at the same time) and craft your very own individual workflows. And you'll even be able to access separate controller configurations via the drag-n-drop functionality.
