Solid State Logic’s 2 and 2+ were already two of the best USB interfaces for the price, which is pretty huge when you consider the stiff competition. The SSL name is synonymous with premium quality and a rich legacy – in 1996 Billboard Magazine described the SSL console as the Rolls-Royce of the recording industry, claiming that it was used on 83% of Number 1 hits made that year. You’re not just paying for the SSL name and the history associated with it when you buy an SSL 2/2+, you’re getting a beautifully designed piece of technology. It’s never been easier or more affordable to imbue your recordings with classic SSL sound.
The SSL 2/2+ features top-quality components and harnesses SSL’s decades of knowledge. The result is the two luscious, low-noise microphone preamps that capture every detail and nuance of your sound sources, the intuitively designed layout of the controls, high-performance headphone amps, pristine monitoring paths and, last but not least, the “Legacy 4K” mode. This mode, inspired by the sound of the legendary SSL 4000 console, instantly adds subtle harmonic distortion and a musical high-end boost – it enhances anything you use it on.
In addition to a fantastic piece of hardware, SSL throw in a powerful software package called the “SSL Production Pack”, which provides you with all the tools you need to start recording your hit track:
- SSL Native™ Vocalstrip 2 & Drumstrip plug-ins + an extended trial of the complete suite
- Native Instruments® Hybrid Keys & Komplete Start
- Avid®Pro Tools® | First + an exclusive SSL collection of AAX plug-ins
- Ableton®Live Lite™
- 1.5GB Samples from Loopcloud®
Not only are you getting access to two versions of some of the best DAWs out there and a huge variety of samples to use in your productions, you’re also given perpetual licences to two incredible SSL plugins that authentically replicate SSL hardware.
But wait… there’s more!
For a limited time (1/11/20 – 31/12/20), SSL are enhancing the Production Pack by adding in two more of their groundbreaking plugins – FlexVerb and X-Comp! Best of all, new and existing SSL 2 and 2+ owners can download these plugins via the registration portal.
