Introducing the SSL 12 audio interface – where studio-quality sound meets compact versatility. Designed to serve as the backbone of your recording setup, the SSL 12 seamlessly infuses decades of Solid State Logic’s industry-leading expertise into a bus-powered, USB-connected dynamo.

Elevate your audio journey with four meticulously crafted SSL-Designed Analogue Preamps. These pre’s, drawing inspiration from our experience in creating world-class studio equipment, bring unparalleled sound fidelity and richness. These aren’t just any preamps; they boast a staggering low-noise performance and a remarkable gain range, ensuring you never miss any nuance of a performance. Coupled with our renowned Legacy 4K feature, your tracks receive that iconic analogue colour enhancement reminiscent of the classic 4000-series console, making vocals and instruments pop.

We understand the dynamics of the modern-day studio, which is why we’ve incorporated Class-Leading Mic Amps with a two-stage design, achieving an incredible -130 dBu EIN and a superior gain range of 62 dB. To further the seamless integration with professional gear, the SSL 12 operates at full +24 dBu levels on balanced line inputs and outputs. The heart of the SSL 12 is its impeccable 32-bit converter technology. Left-right stereo tracking and balanced outputs deliver more than 120 dB of Dynamic Range, ensuring you get the pristine audio quality synonymous with high-end studios, right on your desktop.

Yet, it’s not just about capturing sound. The SSL 12 comes packed with the intuitive SSL 360° software. Consider this your personal SSL Control Room. Here, users can assign monitor controls, craft multiple independent headphone mixes, personalise front panel user-buttons, and much more. But what truly stands out is the ADAT input functionality. Expanding your input channel count with up to 8 channels of digital audio has never been easier. Compatibility with both Mac and Windows ensures that no matter your platform preference, the SSL 12 is ready to play.

Of course, we haven’t forgotten the producers. The built-in USB Loopback, coupled with MIDI I/O and DC-coupled outputs, turns the SSL 12 into a formidable production toolkit. But there’s more. The SSL Production Pack, bundled with the audio interface, provides an exquisite selection of virtual instruments, plug-ins, samples and DAWs. It’s our way of ensuring you have the best tools at your fingertips.

From the sleek front-access jack sockets for quick DI input access and headphone output to the robust rear panel equipped with Neutrik® XLR Combo sockets, 5 Pin DIN MIDI I/O, and digital audio inputs via ADAT, the SSL 12 showcases a blend of form and function. It’s big studio features in a small desktop footprint.
