Robust plugin controller with intuitive yet versatile interface.

The UC1 is a hardware plug-in controller featuring dedicated knob-per-function Channel EQ and dynamics controls, a centre section featuring full Bus Compressor controls and an authentic moving-coil gain reduction meter. These robust features combine to offer the most creative, intuitive and effective way of controlling the SSL Native Channel Strip 2 and Bus Compressor 2 plug-ins within your DAW session. SSL production tools are the benchmark for studio ergonomics and workflow. UC1 draws on decades of analogue and digital console design to develop an intelligent and deeply integrated SSL plug-in control surface. UC1’s layout of encoders, switches and color groupings offer professional SSL console ergonomics seamlessly integrated with the Channel Strip and Bus Compressor plug-ins. Multiple parameters can be controlled simultaneously and precisely, equipping you with a production tool that nurtures muscle memory, provides unmatched sonic flexibility and inspires operator confidence.

SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer 
At the heart of the UC1 system is the SSL 360° Plug-in Mixer, which allows you to view and control all Channel Strips and Bus Compressors in one place. The 360° Plug-in Mixer offers an efficient way of interacting with multiple plug-ins simultaneously, further bridging the gap between console and in-the-box workflow. 

Channel Strip and Bus Compressor 
UC1 provides dedicated controls of all key Channel Strip 2 plug-in parameters. EQ, Filters, Compressor and Gate/Expander controls offer the same configuration and visual feedback as found on large-format SSL consoles.
At the heart of UC1 are Bus Compressor controls with an authentic layout and metering. With a classic moving coil gain reduction meter as found on SSL consoles since the 1970’s, it represents the Bus Compressors time constants and gain reduction characteristics perfectly. 

SSL Native Channel Strip 2 & Bus Compressor 2 Plug-ins
Full licenses of SSL Native Channel Strip 2 and Bus Compressor 2 plug-ins are included with UC1. Channel Strip 2 is a a fully-featured Channel Strip, based on digital modelling of the EQ and Dynamics curves from the legendary XL 9000 K SuperAnalogue console. V2 adds SSL’s proprietary anti-cramping algorithms and the ability to trigger the dynamics sidechain externally. Bus Compressor 2 adds a tonne of user requests, with additional Ratio, Attack and Release options. It also offers the ability to trigger the sidechain externally, as well as x2 and x4 oversampling.
