Expensive but usable audio interface with good quality pre-amps
LUN4, 07.04.2020
Some notes from my point of view after full-time using it for about 5-6 weeks. Other interfaces I use or have used are Roland Quad-Capture, Focusrite Scarlett, Focurite Clarett and some RME stuff.

Positive:
- Very nice sounding pre-amps with mics. Instruments also sound fine. Really nothing bad to say about the pre-amps.
- Knobs turn well, feel nice. A bit too small for my taste, since turning them only a little bit (like 0,2 mm or something) is a bit easier with bigger knobs (for me atleast). I like it that all the buttons are on the top panel and that all the cables are on the back panel. Some other interfaces have buttons on the back and I dislike that greatly.
- Two headphone mixes are a welcome addition!
- When pressing the phantom power button all inputs are briefly muted, which is a nice feature that I haven't seen before on units in this price range.

Neutral:
- Latency is comparable with a lot of other of these bus powered interfaces. Nothing to write home about, but also not bad.
- The 4K mode adds high end, boosts overall volume and seems to add a bit of additional gain. It's not bad in any way, but the same effect can be achieved with software. I like the mode for darker sounding acoustic guitars. It's more of a (marketing) gimmick though.
- Build quality-wise it's fine, but nothing special.

Negative:
- The db meter is practically useless. It ranges from -40 to 0 db in 5 steps and well... It sucks big time.
- About once every ~18 hours of using this device, audio stops and the interface need to be turned off and on again (by pulling and reinserting USB cable) in order to be able to use it again. I have not found logging data or the cause.
- It misses features that I would expect on a brand new € 300 audio interfaces. Most - if not all - price competitors offer additional features such as auto sensing, loopback, second monitor out or USB 3.0. Loopback would have been a welcome addition for example.
- Hyperlinks in the box for 'free' software were not working for days and the website didn't function correctly. Maybe they fixed it now, but since this is about my experiences with this purchage I also mention this. Also the 'free' software seemed to requires personal data and seems to require rootkits on your operating system. So this was (because of multiple reasons) a big no-no for me.

All in all a nice and usable audio interface with good quality pre-amps. You don't see small interfaces with top controls that much, so in that regard it's a nice addition. I feel the unit is overpriced/doesn't offer enough features for the amount of money paid, but it still delivers excellent sound so that compensates the high cost a bit.

Very well product!!!!!!
Hin21, 22.11.2020
I use it to connect my MacBook to my microphone and also my Adam T5V monitor and it does it’s work very well! The 4K button is very very very good. It is the most advantage of this little thingy. This is also why I choose this audio interface. There is still something I don’t really like about is that the headphone jack places backwards and my headphone line needs to cross the audio interface. Also the meter is nonsense. It shows not enough information but you can still get the basic volume information on it. The connectivity is awesome though. I can get midi in and out and also rca input and output. Therefore I can connect it to my ILoud micro monitor instead. The build quality is also awesome. The texture is very good for me and it impresses me when I first get the product. The look of the audio interface is also cool. It gives me a professional impression. Also, the sound it records is pretty awesome due to its price. I can bet that this audio interface does its thing more than its price. I would recommend everyone with a limited budget to get this awesome and wonderful audio interface!

Great for collaborations and hi-fi recordings in desktop format
jsabin, 28.09.2020
The value in this interface is awesome:
It hardly sounds any different than top-tier interfaces.
It provides 2 fully customizable channels and every control you'll ever need on an interface.
It has 2 very good headphone jacks. This is great for monitoring vocalists professionaly or any recording of 2 simulatenous sources without external amps.
The 4K really breathes life into some recordings, specially guitars without external amp and vocals recorded with mics like the SM7B.
The build quality and knobs feel great. Maybe the buttons not so much (small deal).
The only "downside" is that it is, in my opinion, too heavy and fragile to be really portable, it feels more like a desk device. However, it can surely be transported in its box with some caution.

Step up compared to my Scarlett 2i2 (2nd gen.)
Saff, 23.01.2021
I use the SSL2+ mainly to record voiceovers. The mic I use is the Rode Procaster.

Compared to the 2i2 there a few features that I like about the SSL2+:
- Two headphone amps: so that I and the voiceover artist can monitor simultaneously.
- The cleaner mic preamps.
- The extra gain of the mic preamps.
- That the connections are at the back of the interface: cleaner desk ;)
- The overall esthetics and layout of the device.

The only con I have right now is that is less portable that the 2i2. It's bigger and the extruding knobs seem more fragile.

Overall I think it's a great interface and in my opinions it's a step up compared to my previous Scarlett 2i2 interface.
