A new class of audio interface

SSL 12 is a 12-in/8-out USB bus-powered audio interface that enables you to get studio-quality audio into and out of your computer with minimal fuss and maximum creativity. Building upon the success of SSL 2 and SSL 2+, SSL 12 gives you more. More I/O, more performance and more versatility. SSL 12 is fully integrated with SSL 360° software: Your SSL Control Room. Here you can assign monitor controls, create multiple independent headphone mixes, choose your Loopback source, customise the 3 front panel user-buttons and much more. SSL 12 presents a combination of professional features and workflow never seen before in a portable desktop interface.

Class-Leading Mic Amps 

4 beautifully detailed mic preamps to capture every nuance of every performance, with enough gain to cope with whatever microphone you're plugging in. Our two-stage design uses a mixture of specially chosen discrete low-noise transistors in combination with ICs, resulting in exceptionally low-noise performance (-130 dBu EIN) and a superior gain range (62 dB)

Full +24 dBu Operating Levels 

Unlike many USB-powered audio interfaces, the balanced line inputs and outputs on SSL 12 work all the way up to +24 dBu, allowing you to seamlessly integrate with your favourite analogue outboard gear and other line-level devices.

No Compromise Conversion and Monitoring 

With 32-bit converter technology, impeccable left-right stereo tracking and balanced outputs that deliver greater than 120 dB of Dynamic Range, SSL 12 brings the kind of no compromise monitor section performance fit for a high-end studio straight to your desktop.

Record

For tracking, the ADAT connectivity, together with the on-board talkback mic and an incredibly powerful software cue mixer (that allows you to create up to 4 independent near-zero latency performer mixes) will handle the most demanding of recording sessions.

Mix

For mixing, alternative monitor switching and assignable front panel control room functions puts everything you need at your fingertips.

Produce

For production, USB Loopback, MIDI I/O and DC-coupled outputs for CV control of synths equip you with a serious toolkit to keep the creativity flowing. To top it all off, the ever-expanding SSL Production Pack (packed with a selection of must-have virtual instruments, plug-ins, samples and DAWs) helps to bring your productions to life.

Total control from SSL 360° - Your SSL control room 

SSL 360° hosts the SSL 12 software mixer, where you can set up low-latency headphone mixes, choose your Loopback source and customise the user-assignable front panel buttons on SSL 12 via the powerful but intuitive console-style mixer on-screen.
