Solid State Logic SSL UC1 – Universal Plug-in Controller


At the heart of every UC1 system is the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer, a place to view and control all of your Channel strips and Bus Compressors in one place. The Plug-in Mixer offers a new and exciting way of interacting with your plug-ins, allowing you to adopt a true console-like approach to mixing in-the-box. Mix and match different channel strip flavours within to create your own hybrid SSL console sound.

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 SSL 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. All of this feedback and control means, unlike many other controllers, you don’t have to look at your DAW when driving UC1.
