Get a Professional Yet Personal Studio with the Solid State Logic SSL 2 USB Audio Interface

SSL 2 is more than just an audio interface, it is the center of your new Solid State Logic studio. Class-leading mic preamps, Legacy 4K analogue enhancement, studio-quality monitoring and the incredible SSL Production Pack software bundle. SSL have been designing cutting-edge mixing consoles and processing tools for the world's finest recording studios for over four decades. Now you get all that hit-making know-how in your own personal studio.

Legacy 4K Analogue Enhancement

With SSL 2, you're getting two class-leading input stages to enable you to capture the best audio 'picture' of your microphone or instrument. However, sometimes the raw sound of a microphone can sound a little 'uninspiring' or lifeless and you need something to bring it to life. This is where the Legacy 4K button comes in.

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, SSL has distilled 2 essential characteristics of the 4K sound into a single-circuit, which you can engage when you need to breath some life into 'boring' or 'dull' sounding input sources.


  • 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.
  • 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, SSL has 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 Mic Preamps

SSL 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.

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

Studio Quality, Front to Back

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, SSL uses the same industry-grade parts as found in their 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.
