NAMM 22: SSL UF8 Updates and The BUS +
More feedback, and an update to the classic comressor 09/06/22
SSL were showing updates to their UF8 Studio controller which has had an update to allow for much more integrated parameter display on a separate layer. its kind of like a HUI but way more finessed, feature rich and integrated.
They also had their BUS+ which is a new take on the classic BUS Compressor which has been used to put the final touches on mixes and Busses for decades.
The BUS+ adds a bunch of new features, some of which we've seen in third party remakes such as the Better Maker (see our review). However it includes a bunch of clever filtering, saturation and sidechain features that make it more flexible.
Available now priced at £1999
4 modes of operation - Classic Stereo, Sigma S/C Stereo, Dual Mono or Mid-Side
External side-chain inputs and sends
The authentic SSL Bus Compressor circuit
LOW THD Mode reduces low-frequency distortion caused by compression
F/B Mode alters the compression characteristics for a more 'relaxed' style of compression
4K Mode - single VCA operation with variable harmonic distortion to bring some grit and grunge to the mix
Negative Ratios - for creative pumping effects and control of particularly loud signals
New Attack and Release options, including the new Auto 2 setting
