SSL UC-1 Plugin Controller Overview

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, a 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 the 4K B, SSL Native Channel Strip 2 and Bus Compressor 2 plug-ins within your DAW session.

Console ergonomics and workflow

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 most advanced channel strip and Bus Compressor plug-ins to date. 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.

Every detail of UC1 has been implemented to keep you in control and informed of how your mix is reacting to processing. Dedicated front panel encoders accompanied by an on-board hi-res display allow you to move quickly between instances of 360°-enabled channel strips and Bus Compressors directly from the surface. You can also load presets, as well as alter the channel strip process order.

SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer

At the heart of the UC1 system is the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer, a place to view and control all of your 360°-enabled channel strips and Bus Compressors in one place. The 360° Plug-in Mixer offers an efficient way of interacting with multiple plug-ins simultaneously, further bridging the gap between console and in-the-box workflow.

SSL 4K B, Channel Strip 2 & Bus Compressor 2 Plug-ins

UC1 provides dedicated controls of all key 4K B and Channel Strip 2 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.

At the heart of UC1 are Bus Compressor controls. Its authentic layout and metering feels like you’re controlling a hardware bus comp built into the centre section of an SSL console. With a classic moving coil gain reduction meter as found on SSL consoles since the 1970s, it represents the Bus Compressors' time constants and gain reduction characteristics perfectly for producers and engineers to know exactly how it’s reacting with their instruments, subgroups and of course mix bus.

Perpetual plug-in licenses for SSL 4K B, Channel Strip 2 and Bus Compressor 2 plug-ins are included with UC1. Expertly modelled, the 4K B plug-in is an authentic emulation of the SL 4000 B channel strip – full of tone, punch and rich non-linear analogue character. Channel Strip 2 is a fully-featured channel strip, based on digital modelling of the EQ and Dynamics curves from the legendary XL 9000 K SuperAnalogue console. Bus Compressor 2 is the ultimate SSL Bus Compressor plug-in, featuring additional Ratio, Attack and Release options and oversampling.

6-Month Trial of SSL Complete included

SSL Complete is the easiest way to access every SSL plug-in, with new premium plug-ins being added all the time. Featuring our legendary consoles, compressors, equalisers, reverbs & delays, Fusion processors and much more. SSL Complete provides everything you need to make brilliant-sounding music and create an SSL studio in your DAW.

I had my previous audio interface for about a decade, and it was perfectly acceptable. But, wow! I have to say that there has been a sonic improvement since installing the SSL. As a bonus, I find that I can use the dual-out headphone sockets to run my Behritones (horrortones etc) with perfect ease. Damn good product.

I really like this product. It works seamlessly with SSL 360. The hardware/software integration is lovely ad makes a great workflow. That is both productive and enjoyable.
