SSL 12 is a USB bus-powered audio interface that enables you to get studio-quality audio into and out of your computer with minimal fuss and maximum creativity. On Mac, it's class-compliant - this means that you don't need to install any software audio drivers. On Windows, you'll need to install our SSL USB Audio ASIO/WDM driver, which you can download from our website or via the HOME page of the SSL 360° software - see the Quick-Start section of this guide for more information on getting up and running.
SSL 12's capabilities are further extended with the power of SSL 360°; an application hosted on your computer where the powerful SSL 12 Mixer page allows for super low latency (sub 1 ms) headphone mixes, flexible loopback functionality, and customization of the 3 user-assignable switches on the front panel. See the SSL 360° section for more information.
