Solid State Logic SSL 12 USB Audio Interface with Legacy 4K

For over 50 years, Solid State Logic has been designing cutting-edge mixing consoles and hardware processors, now they introduce the SSL 12.

SSL 12 Class-Leading Performance

SSL 12 comes with four SSL-designed mic pre-amps with uncompromising low-noise and high-gain performance. Also, it has the legacy 4K analogue enhancement for adding that signature SSL colour!

Afterwards, class-leading dynamic range from premium-quality converters & a comprehensive monitoring section makes mixing easy. Furthermore, utilise ADAT expandability, a talkback mic, flexible headphone outputs and an intuitive console-style software mixer.

Big Studio Features, Small Desktop Footprint

In fact, SSL 12 is loaded with an extraordinary amount of professional studio features normally reserved for high-end rackmount interfaces. For tracking, the ADAT connectivity, onboard talkback mic and an incredibly powerful cue mixer handle the most demanding recording sessions.

SSL12 – Built To Last Components

SSL 12 takes the ‘traditional’ desktop audio interface where it’s never been before. Specifically, it has an incredible array of features in a compact footprint that delivers outstanding audio quality. Featuring the familiar Alps pots, Neutrik connectors and an attractive brushed aluminium front panel, SSL 12 is built to last.

Real Analogue Enhancement Inspired By The SSL 4000-Series (4K) Console

Legacy 4K is an all-analogue enhancement effect, inspired by the character of an SSL 4000-series console. It distils two essential characteristics of the 4K sound into a single circuit. The first thing engaging the Legacy 4K circuit will do is to introduce a forward, yet musical-sounding high-frequency EQ boost, helping to add some excitement to your vocal or instrument.

Secondly, it’ll add some subtle analogue distortion with finely tuned harmonic content, helping bolster any sound with more edge and personality.

For Mixing & Production

The SSL 12’s alternative monitor switching and assignable front panel control room functions put everything you need at your fingertips. Also, USB Loopback, MIDI I/O and DC-coupled outputs for CV control of synths and FX equip you with a serious toolkit to keep the creativity flowing.

SSL Production Pack

To top it all off, the ever-expanding SSL Production Pack (packed with a selection of must-have virtual instruments, plug-ins, samples and DAWs) helps to bring your productions to life.
