SSL hardware for your SSL software

UC1 is a hardware plug-in controller like no other. Dedicated knob-per-function Channel EQ and Dynamics controls, centre section featuring full Bus Compressor controls and authentic moving-coil gain reduction meter combine to offer the most creative, intuitive, and ultimately effective way of controlling your 360°-enabled SSL channel strip and Bus Compressor plug-ins.

SSL production tools are the benchmark for studio ergonomics and workflow. UC1 draws on decades of analogue and digital console design to develop an intelligent and deeply integrated SSL plug-in control surface that lets you focus on your production goals and not the process.

UC1’s layout of encoders, switches and colour groupings offer professional SSL console ergonomics seamlessly integrated with our 360°-enabled channel strip and Bus Compressor plug-ins. Multiple parameters can be controlled simultaneously and precisely, equipping you with a production tool that nurtures muscle memory, provides unmatched sonic flexibility and inspires operator confidence. To expand your hybrid workflow further, accompany with the UF8 Advanced DAW Controller.

Virtual SSL Console

At the heart of every UC1 system is the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer, a place to view and control all of your 360-enabled plug-ins. The Plug-in Mixer offers a new and exciting way of interacting with your plug-ins, allowing you to adopt a true console-like approach to mixing in-the-box. Mix and match different channel strip flavours within to create your own hybrid SSL console sound.

SSL sound and workflow

UC1 provides dedicated controls of all key SSL 360°-enabled channel strip plug-in parameters. EQ, Filters, Compressor and Gate/Expander controls offer the same configuration and visual feedback as found on large-format SSL consoles, allowing you to quickly home in on your channel processing sweet spot. SSL plug-ins are the only plug-ins designed by the team of SSL engineers at HQ in Oxford, with exclusive access to the original data sheets and specifications from which the consoles were made.

4K B Plug-in

Full of tone, punch and rich non-linear analogue character, the 4K B is a detailed emulation of the legendary SL 4000 console B channel strip. The iconic sound of the SL 4000 B console is synonymous with records that emerged from London’s famous Townhouse Studio 2, the ‘Stone Room’ in the late 70’s, early 80’s.

Channel Strip 2 Plug-in

Developed from our digital modelling of the renowned XL 9000K console, SSL Native Channel Strip 2 gives you everything you need to get that radio-ready, modern SSL sound in your DAW. Clean, linear tone shaping for maximum flexibility. Switch between classic E and G-Series EQ curves.

Bus Compressor 2

The centre section compressor from SSL’s 1980’s G Series analogue console is an audio production legend. It is the secret behind countless classic recordings. Bus Compressor 2 Plug-in boasts a host of enhancements, including Attack, Release and Compression ratios for added flexibility with individual sounds and subgroups, in addition to inbuilt wet/dry and S/C HPF control, as well as switchable 2x and 4x Oversampling.

Move to your production groove

Over the course of a session, workflow changes depending on the task in hand. We understand this and that’s why we made sure UC1 offers the tools, visual feedback and total synchronisation between hardware and software required to allow you to work the way you want at any given time. Get hands-on with the UC1 hardware, adjust parameters with the mouse in the individual plug-ins or immerse yourself in the Plug-in Mixer - changes are always synchronised across all software and hardware.
