  • [NEW] Delay in SSL 12 Talkback coming on to prevent mechanical noise

 

Known Issues

  • SSL 360° occasionally losing connection and crashing - ‘something went wrong’ appears. To fix restart computer or open up Activity Monitor and kill the ‘SSL360Core’ process. Then re-launch SSL 360° application. Preventing sleep when the display is off on your computer may help reduce experiencing this issue.
  • SSL 360° - UF8 and UF1 - Windows modifier key no longer recorded when setting up keyboard macro.
  • LUNA VST3 Plug-in Mixer DAW control – Grouped tracks and automation - when adjusting faders, pans, sends, solos and mutes from 360°/UF8/UF1/UC1, links do not work – only 1 track moves at a time. Automation is also not able to be written. To work around, use MCU layer of UF1/UF8.
  • Studio One Plug-in Mixer/UC1 - When 360°-enabled channel strip or Bus Compressor 2 is inserted on an FX channel in Studio One it shows up twice in the 360° Plug-in Mixer. This only happens if there is an instrument track record armed that has a send going to that FX Channel and also with the dropout protection set to medium or higher.
  • Ableton Live – the presence of 4K B and Channel Strip 2 stops pan automation from working in Live. To work around, automate the channel strip plug-in's pan.
  • Mixbus – UF8 and UF1 – V-Pot readout bar does not update when moving to Pan mode (coming from another V-Pot mode like Sends). Mixbus are aware of the issue.

  • SSL 12 - Phones A Line Output Mode in I/O Mode was not balanced
  • SSL 12 - Talkback microphone input metering only shows when TALK button is engaged
  • SSL 12 - Random noise on boot

Known Issues in SSL 360° v1.5.16?

  • UC1/360° Plug-in Mixer with Pro Tools - Solo/Mute only solos or mutes the left-hand side of the 4K B or Channel Strip 2 plug-in when using multi-mono instances. The work around is to replace multi-mono instances with true multichannel instances (stereo instances).
  • Logic Pro shows as ‘DAW Host’ in the 360° Plug-in Mixer on some systems
  • UF1 - Pro Tools Plug-in Control Mode – Value readouts on large display become stuck when pressing the V-Pot of the channel currently being controlled (even though the plug-in parameters continue to be controlled). To resolve, select another insert before returning to the desired one.
  • UF1 – Removing an instance of SSL Meter plug-in causes UF1 to show ‘No Meter Plug-in Found’. To resolve, either open a different instance of Meter plug-in in the DAW or select a different instance of Meter in SSL 360°
  • UC1/360° Plug-in Mixer with LUNA - Moving Channel Strip 2 or 4K B plug-in to a different insert slot when that track is selected in the Plug-in Mixer/on UC1 causes the Plug-in Mixer track ordering to get messed up. To fix, you must remove the offending plug-in. To avoid, make sure if you are re-ordering tracks in LUNA, the one you are dragging to a new position isn’t the selected instance in the Plug-in Mixer/on UC1.
  • UC1/360° Plug-in Mixer with LUNA - Plug-in Mixer ordering goes in reverse order when bulk inserting Channel Strip 2 (AU) Plug-ins in LUNA.
  • UF1 small screen graphics - occasionally a small number of randomly coloured pixels can appear. To resolve, switch to a different DAW Layer and then come back. This issue will be resolved in a future firmware update.

Important Note

When updating to SSL 360° v1.4.21, please also update your SSL 4K B Channel strip plug-in to v1.1.6, SSL Native Channel Strip 2 plug-in to v2.1.4 and Bus Compressor 2 plug-in to v1.1.24.

New in SSL 360° v1.4.21

  • Support for SSL 12 Mixer
  • Support for MacOS Ventura (UC1, UF8, SSL 12)

What’s Fixed?

  • Logic - Channel name displays random extra characters in track name display of 4K B, Channel Strip 2, Plug-in Mixer and on UC1 on Ventura, also causing ordering issues.
  • Cubase/Nuendo/Studio One/REAPER - 4K B Plug-in - When copy-dragging the 4K B plug-in to another channel’s insert slot, the track number is duplicated, instead of changing to the correct track number.

Known Issues

  • Bus Compressor 2 DAW track name displays lots of random characters in the Plug-in/Plug-in Mixer and on UC1.
  • Sleep mode does not always engage on UF8 when USB connection removed.
  • LUNA - Moving Channel Strip 2 or 4K B plug-in to a different insert slot when that track is selected in the Plug-in Mixer/on UC1 causes Plug-in Mixer track ordering to get messed up. To fix, you must remove the offending plug-in. To avoid, make sure if you are re-ordering tracks in LUNA, the one you are dragging to a new position isn’t the selected instance in the Plug-in Mixer/on UC1.
  • Plug-in Mixer ordering goes in reverse order when bulk inserting Channel Strip 2 (AU) Plug-ins in LUNA.
  • Plug-in type labels (e.g 4K B or CS 2) remain on screen when UF8 layer is set to plugin mixer and the DAW is closed. To fix change the Layer to a different one on UF8 and then re-select the Layer you have set up to control the Plug-in Mixer.
  • Pro Tools - Inserting mono -> stereo 4K B instance before a mono instance on a channel in Pro Tools assigns same track index in the Plug-in Mixer that the mono instance has.
  • SSL 360° triggers turbo speed on 12th Gen Intel Windows machine. To fix, turn off 'Threaded Optimization' in the Nvidia Control Panel.
  • 4K B and Channel Strip 2 Solo and Cut automation do not work in Ableton Live.
  • Ableton Live – Ableton Live’s automation lane always pulls attention back to CS 2 / 4K B’s CUT automation parameter. To workaround, open individual automation lanes in Live for any parameter you want to draw in automation for and leave the main lane alone (because it will always switch itself back to ‘CUT’).
  • SSL 360° processes on Mac might appear to show high CPU usage in Activity Monitor, even though performance is seemingly unaffected.
  • Studio One Undo History issues with Channel Strip 2 and 4K B (SSL 360°). Some issues have been discovered that may cause inconsistent undo history behaviour due to the integration of Solo and Mute with Studio One. A fix is being investigated.

General Improvements

  •  SSL 360° Full Screen in Windows – F11 keyboard shortcut, allows full height of Plug-in Mixer to fit on 1080p screens. 
  • SSL 360° Zoomed Out View Tooltips – you now get a value readout when moving a control. 
  • SSL 360° Zoomed Out View – Output fader dB readout temporarily over-rides track name when fader is being moved. 
  • UC1 (MacOS) - 360° button now hides SSL 360° instead of minimising, so that the focus is changed back to the last application (normally the DAW). 
  • UC1 - Bus Compressor Make-up Gain LEDs all dim at default position.
  • UC1 - LPF and HPF LEDs dim at minimum position. 

 360° General Fixes 

  • FIXED - Windows key functions are blocked while SSL 360° is focused. 
  • FIXED – Noticeably slow Bus Compressor meter frame rate in the Plug-in Mixer. 
  • FIXED - Metering sometimes does not appear when opening 360° GUI. 

Pro Tools

  • [24997] FIXED - The SAVE AS DEFAULT feature is now working for Channel Strip 2 and Bus Compressor 2 (fixed in version v1.0.55 of Channel Strip 2). 
  • [32277] FIXED - Alt-Drag CS2 plug-ins to a different slot in PT causes index number duplication and nothing added to 360° GUI. 
  • [32285] FIXED - Alt inserting stereo channel strips overwriting multi-mono prevents all the new channel strips from connecting to 360° 
  • [32358] FIXED - Inserting Mono>Stereo CS2 before existing Mono Stereo Fails to instantiate in 360° Plug-in Mixer. 
  • [32500] FIXED - Re-activating a multi-mono CS2 often causes both legs to show in 360°

Studio One

  •  [32665] Channel ordering in Plug-in Mixer not correct when loading Studio One sessions on macOS 

 
Reaper 

  • - [32448] FIXED - Plug-ins on Master channel in Reaper get hidden in 360 when same plug-in (Channel Strip 2 or Bus Compressor 2) is added to a track. 
     

UF8 Control Surface

  • [30931] FIXED - Bus Compressor 2 plug-in parameters contain some reversed pots. 

UC1 Control Surface 

  • [32261] FIXED - Minimum level of dynamics metering on UC1 more closely matches Channel Strip 2 dynamics metering.
