Now with the ability to control any plug-in, SSL brings new power and flexibility to UC1 controller and hybrid workflows.

Solid State Logic previewed its new SSL 360° Link plug-in software during the 2024 NAMM Show. SSL 360 Link° enables their popular UC1 surface to control any third-party plug-in, bringing control of any plug-in within their SSL 360° software environment and renowned ‘virtual console’ hybrid workflow.

The software/hardware combination of UC1 plug-in controller and SSL 360° software is the result of decades of console design expertise, providing a 'knob-per-function' plug-in control and unparalleled visual feedback for users. Now, with SSL 360° Link Plug-in, users have even greater control over sonic flavours by accessing a much broader palette of plug-ins, providing an almost infinite range of creative options when producing and mixing music.

SSL 360° - It’s all in the Link

Delivered through a streamlined user interface and designed with intuitive setup features, SSL 360° Link lets you quickly start dropping third-party plug-ins into your session and control them with the advanced ‘console-style’ workflow that UC1 offers. Any third-party plug-ins mapped via 360° Link become visible in the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer (also controllable from SSL's UF1 and UF8 control surfaces) alongside SSL's 4K E, 4K B and CS2 channel strips - resulting in an even deeper integration into a virtual SSL console workflow.

SSL 360° Link comes with a selection of customisable factory maps for popular SSL channel strip plug-ins from the likes of Slate Digital®, Harrison Audio®, Universal Audio®, Waves®, and Brainworx®. While UC1 is optimised for a typical channel strip layout, any plug-in can be quickly mapped using the user-friendly mapping tool.

The SSL 360° Link Plug-in is a free-of-charge download and will be available in AAX Native/AU/VST3/VST formats via the Solid State Logic website in early March. Third-party ‘hosted’ plug-ins must be in VST3 format.
