SSL have been involved in helping musicians, producers and engineers create amazing music for 40 years, and all that knowledge and experience is at the heart of our audio creation products. As the next generation of aspiring musicians and audio professionals evolve, the SSL 2 professional personal studio gives you the tools and technology to make your productions stand out from the crowd.

Analogue Enhancement Inspired by SSL 4000 series

SSL has a history of innovation in analogue electronics and console design. Whether it be the sound of our classic EQ '242' and '292' EQ circuits, the punch of the legendary SSL G-Series Bus Compressor or the incredible bandwidth and sonic accuracy of our ground-breaking SuperAnalogue designed mic amps and consoles, we're always moving forward with analogue.

Legacy 4K is an all-new analogue enhancement effect, inspired by the character of an SSL 4000 series console (often referred to as '4K'). With the Legacy 4K button, we've distilled 2 essential characteristics of the 4K sound into a single-circuit, which you can engage when you need to breathe some life into 'boring' or 'dull' sounding input sources.

1st characteristic: High-Frequency EQ boost – The first thing engaging the Legacy 4K button will do is introduce a 'forward', yet musical high-frequency EQ boost, something which 4000-series EQs are known and loved for.

2nd characteristic: Subtle-Harmonic Distortion – 4K consoles are synonymous with imparting a certain 'mojo' to signals passing through them. This mojo comes through multiple stages of harmonic distortion from compressor VCAs, VCA Faders and other crucial areas like the transistor mix amps. Using modern components, we've created a circuit that injects a controlled amount of finely-tuned, sweet-sounding harmonic distortion into the signal path, helping to give your sound more edge!

Class Leading Preamps

The Art: We've designed 2 class-leading, beautifully detailed mic preamps to capture every nuance of every performance, with enough gain to cope with whatever microphone you're plugging in.

The Tech: Many USB-powered audio interfaces use standard IC circuits in their mic amp designs. We prefer to use a different approach. Our 2-stage design uses a mixture of specially chosen discrete low-noise transistors in combination with ICs. This enables us to design mic preamps with exceptional noise performance and a superior gain range.

And just because you're working out of your home studio or on the road, doesn't mean you should compromise on the quality of your audio interface. With SSL 2 we've chosen to use the same industry-grade parts as found in our larger consoles and I/O products, delivering the same kind of quality you'd expect from a large SSL-equipped studio, into your personal workspace.
