Mind Blown
Ichiban lipstick for men, 21.05.2020
I needed a simple, workhorse audio interface to record voice-overs and present live product demos using OBS and boy does the SSL 2 deliver!

I was sick of seeing super-slick, anodised and knurled looking batman style interfaces. For that reason, the SSL 2 stood out to me as being no-nonsense and has a really refreshing look with those industry style knobs and spacious top panel. It fits comfortably next to my MacBook Pro and also works fine through my powered USB3 hub.

I’ve left the 4k switched on for all recording, It is super crisp and really lifts the vocal. I’ve been so happy with the audio straight out that I don’t even EQ the audio… shocking I know!

I really enjoy the simple method for the headphone monitor mix, you simply mix between ‘input’ (whatever you are recording through the SSL 2) and ‘USB’ (whatever you’ve got coming back in from your DAW/Mac).

The inputs and outputs are well made and I love the Spinal Tap reference with the Monitor level maxing out at 11 rather than 10.

I can’t see anything else for similar money matching up to the SSL 2 for my needs. It is well built, looks the business, simple interface, sounds great and finally comes from incredible heritage.

Vict0ry, 02.11.2020
the product is really good, but I cannot say the same about material quality.

Even though I turn off + 48V, sometimes it stays on , Half-touch the button is enough to activate it , this time we have trouble understanding if it is on and off.

their preamps are really good

When the microphone gain turns on and off quickly, there is a problem with the indicators

Apart from the buttons, I can say it is a very high quality and enjoyable product. has an excellent performance for its price

I wanted to share with you after a very long use

By the way, I am sometimes having trouble with the cpu in fl studio, I could not exactly know if it is related to the sound card, It works when I play with the buffer settings or go through the virtual sound card and turn over again..

Better than 2i2
sibilar, 14.10.2020
So, I had a 2i2 for my guitar and bass recording at home. Soundwise and latencywise I was happy but didn't like the fact that the card doesn't like high gain pickups. I had to turn down the gain on the channel input all the way and still with some humbuckers it would clip.
That's the only reason I bought SSL2. I tested it and it handles humbuckers better. Still, I would like to have more headroom for guitar recording. On 2i2 I used to turn the gain down all the way, on SSL2 I put it on 1/4 and it doesn't clip with most PAF's and similar humbuckers.
Soundwise, I don't have much to say that hasn't beend said already.

A very impressive audio interface from SSL!
Skywalker6, 18.05.2021
What a time we live in! Having a device with an SSL name on a home studio desk for €199? Wow!

Ok, emotions and brand power aside, the SSL 2 really is an impressive little interface.

The converters sound nice and clean, both on the input and the output. It was an immediate improvement over my old DAC, which was no slouch, mind you.
On the input side, the 4K switch adds a nice little airy coloration/distortion which can sound nice depending on the source.

Build quality wise it's very impressive. I very much like the classic SSL knobs look and the main volume knob is nice and chunky and feels great to the touch. The rest of the interface is precisely built and feels sturdy and massive enough, especially for the price.

All in all, I love it!
