Said to be the culmination of 40 years of mastering studio ergonomics experience, Solid State Logic tells us that the UF8 controller delivers a new level of user focused design; insightful displays, intelligent fader and control access and function, multiple stand angles for user defined placement, and a production workflow enhancing control layout. They say that the high-spec touch sensitive faders, encoders, and high-resolution colour displays, complement the premium build quality that belie this new price point for an SSL controller.
SSL believes that, expandable to a 32 channel control surface with integration for all major DAW platforms, UF8 is ideally suited to music creation, production and mixing, post production and webcasting. The new SSL 360° control software manages multi-controller configurations, customised user keys, and DAW switching across multiple layers, allowing for seamless switching between numerous sessions.
Andy Jackson, SSL Studio Product Manager, told us, "UF8 is an obvious next step in SSL's development in ergonomically designed studio tools for todays' mixers, producers and creators. The layout and build quality are all about our fixation with 'human engineering'; creating products that keep you in the creative zone with high-speed access to every fader or control, without operator fatigue or discomfort."
