Loopback allows you to take the output audio stream from your SSL 2 or SSL 2+ and record it back into the DAW (or another application). This can be really useful for music makers, podcasters and streamers.
To take advantage of the new loopback feature of the SSL 2/2+ you will need to update your SSL2/2+ using the SSL USB Audio Firmware updater.
