New in SSL 360° v1.3

  • Windows 11 and 12th Gen Intel compatibility for SSL 360°, UC1 and UF8. 
  • New CONTROL SETUP page separates the SSL 360° DAW setup onto a dedicated page. 
  • New Transport Bar for SSL 360°Plug-in Mixer (powered by HUI/MCU commands). 
    • Transport can be controlled directly from the Plug-in Mixer GUI. 
    • Transport can be controlled directly from UC1 hardware (Stop, Play, Timeline Navigation). 
    • UF8 Cursor Keys can be switched into Transport mode (on a per UF8 basis). 
    • UF8 ‘Plug-in Mixer‘ Layer improvements – cursor keys control Transport functionality, CHANNEL encoder can now be put into NAV mode, for DAW Timeline Navigation. 

 

Fixed in SSL 360° v1.3

  • Buggy communication between Pro Tools and UF8 on Monterey OS. 
  • Buggy communication between Cubase and UF8 on Monterey OS. 
  • One-way communication between Pro Tools and UF8 on Windows 11. 
  • UC1/Plug-in Mixer in Nuendo (and other VST3 DAWs) - Channel Strip 2 or Bus Compressor 2 loaded on the Main output channel type don't show up in SSL 360 Plug-in Mixer or on UC1. 
  • UF8 Studio One (Windows) - Plugin Page buttons do not work; they break channel selection and banking. 
  • UF8 Studio One (Windows) - Automation OFF button requires second press to turn off, switches to Read first. 
  • UF8 Ableton layer > I/O V-Pot encoder gearing too sensitive when scrolling I/O Send names. 
  • Plugin Mixer bus comp Attack, Release and Ratio knobs aren't in sync with the plugin, can bounce to different value on mouse release. 
  • Export Report on macOS causes SSL 360° to close. 
  • Size of maximised SSL 360° window is not recalled at full size on Mac. 
  • Certain Pro Tools bulk format change operations (e.g. inserting plug-ins that cause track format to change from mono to stereo) can cause plugin mixer ordering to be lost. 
  • Plug-in Mixer now warns when a mixture of VST3 and AU Channel Strip plug-ins are being used. 
  • SSL 360° Home Page now warns when either plug-ins or SSL 360° versions are incompatible (out-of-date). 

 

Known Issues in SSL 360° v1.3

  • Plug-in Mixer Transport Display Bars/Beats & SMPTE readout for Studio One has no separation between digits. 
  • Plug-in Mixer ordering goes in reverse when bulk inserting Channel Strip 2 (AU) Plug-ins in LUNA. 
  • UC1/Plug-in Mixer/Channel Strip 2/Bus Compressor 2 Track Names are not receiving extended ASCII characters from Pro Tools track names. 
  • When 2 (or more) UF8s are connected to Cubase, using the Channel Type Visibility modes for Channel Types across faders causes Cubase to crash. 
  • Calling maximised and F11’d SSL 360 to screen puts it in “quasi” maximised state. 
  • SSL 360° Uninstaller lets SSL 360° uninstall while Cubase 12 or Nuendo 11 DAWs are open. 
  • SMPTE light doesn’t come on in the Plug-in Mixer Transport Bar with Studio One or LUNA.

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.
