SSL UF-8 Advanced DAW Controller Overview

Accelerated creativity with intelligent studio production ergonomics

UF8 is SSL’s advanced 8-fader studio controller, designed for today’s DAW-based production workflows and ultrafast turn-around times. Expandable up to 32 channels, UF8 connects engineers, producers and artists directly to the creative process, offering absolute command of their workflow and significantly accelerating the speed of audio production and content creation.

Not all controllers are equal

UF8 is the culmination of SSL’s 40+ year legacy of mastering production workflows and studio ergonomics built into generations of classic SSL consoles. This depth of understanding of studio production, combined with decades of engineering excellence, delivers a premium finish tactile USB controller that distils SSL workflow and quality.

Advanced workflow

UF8 offers intuitive features that are developed from a true understanding of production workflow. Take ultimate control with simultaneous access to multiple DAW sessions, and precise navigation with a multi-purpose Master Encoder for DAW timeline access, track banking and mouse wheel emulation. 'Dual-purpose Selection Keys permit rapid access to select functions as well as solo and mute clearing in Pro Tools and Logic Pro. New CHANNEL and PLUG-IN control modes provide enhanced workflows for those using UF8 with Pro Tools, with easy access to sends and plug-ins without slowing down your creativity.


Each UF8 comes equipped with 43 assignable user keys set across 5 configurable banks, allowing users to configure their essential keyboard shortcuts and macros for total session control. Add multiple controllers to create your unique mixing system; build your perfect 16-24 channel music creation hub, or connect 4 UF8’s within a single system to create a 32-channel controller ideal for large post-production or mixing sessions. Multiple UF8s can be chained together using the THRU port and provide a safe place for iLok storage. For perfect positioning, each UF8 includes an adjustable stand allowing for six different angles of elevation for user-defined placement. 19” rack mount kits are also available for installation into an ORIGIN console centre section or other 19” studio racking.

Open DAW Policy

UF8 integrates with all major DAWs and includes workflow-ready templates for Ableton® Live™, Cubase™/Nuendo™, Pro Tools®, Logic Pro®, Studio One®, LUNA™ and Pyramix™. Many producers and engineers prefer to split their creative process across multiple DAWs. UF8 is uniquely flexible and promotes SSL’s ‘Open DAW Policy’ - Control 3 different DAWs simultaneously and keep your production and mixdown process agile.

360° Control

SSL’s 360° software application provides fast configuration and admin control of your UF8. Customise workflows and define up to 3 different DAW layers for simultaneous session control, with all changes managed without getting in the way of your productivity.

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 have researched quite a few controllers to use with my DAWs. I found SSL-UF-8 to be the best for my needs. It is quite versatile in that it only controls my parameters, but also has a memory store. Great for storing settings for my different tracks for live performances as well. Highly recommend it…especially for Home Studio use.

Fabulous. I love it. It does all the things that I have always been hoping for from a midi controller and does them in a very stylish and slick way. And it looks beautiful.
