Solid State Logic (SSL)

At AES LA 2016 (Booth# 221) Solid State Logic has announced the introduction of Nucleus2, a new version of SSL's DAW controller, audio interface and studio monitoring hub. Nucleus2 responds to customer requests with the addition of talkback, main/mini monitor switching, a change to Dante connectivity and a new white look.

A key addition is a Talkback input with adjustable gain that feeds the headphone output. A large TALK button is added near the transport controls and the talk circuit can trigger a switchable -20dB DIM in the monitor outputs if desired. Another popular request was the addition of a second set of speaker outputs and a 'MINI' monitor button in the centre section for comparing mixes on different systems.

The USB soundcard in Nucleus has been replaced with a new SSL Dante 'Network I/O' audio interface. Dante is a professional audio networking technology that uses standard Ethernet to connect devices to computers. In a personal studio where direct connectivity to a DAW computer is required, Dante is a simple 'single Ethernet cable' alternative to Thunderbolt or USB, with latency of only 4ms when used with the supplied Dante Virtual Soundcard software running on your DAW computer. In a larger multi-space facility Dante is a state of the art audio over IP audio networking technology that facilitates low latency audio sharing between multiple computers.

Dante enables users to combine audio devices from a wide range of audio manufacturers on a network and share audio between them. As of September 2016 over 350 audio brands have adopted Dante into more than 800 products. A Dante network is scalable; adding additional mic pre's or extra analogue outputs is as simple as plugging another Dante device onto the network, where it is automatically detected and ready to use. To help your networked world Nucleus2 has an inbuilt network switch with two Ethernet ports; one port for connection to your computer, and one port for adding other Dante devices to your setup. Finally, to make sure we're making our network "smart" the Talkback signal can be switched to feed channel 2 of the Dante interface for remote communication to other rooms over a network.

About Nucleus
"Nucleus2 retains all of the good things from the original Nucleus; high-quality motorised faders, metal chassis, big weighty jog wheel, heavy duty transport buttons, control of three DAWs simultaneously, and that assembled-with-love-in-the-UK glow. Nucleus2 is a complete solution for the professional in the box producer – someone whose world is centred around multiple projects, recall, fast workflow, and creative inspiration. It has all the tools needed to turn your computer into a hands-on mixing machine, without letting technology get in the way of ideas. Simply add a laptop for a fully mobile SSL rig."

Nucleus2 will be available from November 2016 priced at £3399 + VAT.
