SSL 12 is a 12-in/8-out USB bus-powered audio interface that enables you to get studio-quality audio into and out of your computer with minimal fuss and maximum creativity. Building upon the success of SSL 2 and SSL 2+, SSL 12 gives you more. More I/O, more performance and more versatility. SSL 12 is fully integrated with SSL 360° software: Your SSL Control Room. Here you can assign monitor controls, create multiple independent headphone mixes, choose your Loopback source, customise the 3 front panel user-buttons and much more. SSL 12 presents a combination of professional features and workflow never seen before in a portable desktop interface.
SSL 12 is loaded with an extraordinary amount of professional studio features normally reserved for high-end rackmount interfaces.
For tracking, the ADAT connectivity, together with the on-board talkback mic and an incredibly powerful software cue mixer (that allows you to create up to 4 independent near-zero latency performer mixes) will handle the most demanding of recording sessions.
For mixing, alternative monitor switching and assignable front panel control room functions puts everything you need at your fingertips.
For production, USB Loopback, MIDI I/O and DC-coupled outputs for CV control of synths equip you with a serious toolkit to keep the creativity flowing. 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.
