Solid State Logic launches affordable SSL 2 audio interfaces
The SSL sound has long been a standard in recording, now it’s available to everyone in the form of the SSL 2 audio interfaces.
The Solid State Logic consoles are some of the most sought after mixing consoles of all time, something most audio engineers dream of owning.
SSL recently took a step into the home studio sphere when they launched their SiX desktop mixer, but their latest addition is about to take the full-dive.
Introducing the new SSL 2 and SSL 2+ audio interfaces.
Both interfaces are 2 input, 2 output soundcards with dual class-leading microphone preamps.
The preamps offer pristine audio quality and a Legacy 4K mode which colours the signal much like the legendary SSL 4000 series consoles. The units feature high-quality Neutrik connectors, USB C for data and power, balanced monitor outputs and more.
Constructed with a similar rugged build and aesthetic you would expect on an SSL unit, it’s obvious the core focus here is quality. The price point sets them within range of incredibly popular options like the Focusrite Scarlett series and other options from PreSonus, however with the legacy of the SSL name behind it – I’m sure these will find their way into a lot of studios.
What are the differences between the two SSL 2 audio interfaces?
The major differences between the SSL 2 and SSL 2+ are added MIDI I/O, an extra unbalanced output and additional headphone output.
Other than that it’s pretty standard in terms of audio interface features like I said the core focus here is the legendary SSL quality.
The retail pricing is insanely good too.
The SSL 2 is going for USD $229 (Around R3300 excl. duties) while the SSL 2+ is set at USD $279 (Around R4100 excl. duties). Both interfaces also ship with the SSL Native Plugin Suite.
