It would be great if that IS how it worked though wouldn't it? [wistfully looks off into the distance]. For me, it costs just about twice as much as it should, given its narrow use case. It's so awesome but just too limited for the price. At least, in my opinion.

Respect your opinion brother, only you can decide what to value to you and your workflow. All I can say is for me, I just placed an order for one at Sweetwater. I see the time savings alone to be worth the price of the controller. But that’s just me, everybody’s workflow is different.

I felt the same way, but then I look at the controller, and that makes all that go away. I just have to figure out how to incorporate it into my existing D command.

Well I'm perfectly capable of caving and getting one eventually. Haha. We'll see. They've mentioned that with the 360 software etc, functionality will expand in the future. So let's see how it develops. In the meantime, enjoy it when it arrives!

You could custom map It to the rotary encoders but YUCK!

I want it to work in that DYN / EQ section. Maybe because it’s legacy so they don’t feel the need to care for it also.

I run a D-Control and have used / controlled the "legacy" SSL plugs for years with it (SSL plugs are my main plugins). It worked great but even with the D-Control's dedicated controller section for Eq & Compression, I still used the mouse with those plugins. With this controller (UC1) I do not touch the mouse at all now, when I'm carving sounds. It's just quicker and more intuitively (Less looking at computer screen and more head down listening, while you dial the knobs in). Having worked on SSL consoles all my life, the UC1 paired with the D-Control gives me the same feel and workflow I get when working on a 9000k. I'm also running 32 channels of SSL summing via a Sigma and with the new v2 plugins it also sounds just like a 9000. The Sigma is so unreal in terms of sound but that's for another post.

Side note if anyone is curious and their DAW of choice is Pro Tools. The D-Control works perfectly with the latest version of ProTools. I'm running the latest PT Ultimate on a Mac (Catalina 10.5.7) and it controls everything the new Avid S6's do except one thing...the folder tracks. To collapse or expand the folder tracks you have to use a mouse, no problem. Everything else works perfectly and these controllers are amazing and can be gotten for a steal and are super easy to maintain. The things that "wear out" on these consoles are the power supplies which there are 3rd party companies that specialize in getting you a new/rebuilt one. You just have to install it yourself which is a pretty simple procedure that I think most "audio/gear types" will easily be able to do.
The UC1, D-Control and SSL Sigma combo is an amazing thing on all levels. If your livelihood is sound/music production and you need the authentic SSL sound, console workflow and speed, then this is your solution without spending 6 figures
Hope this helps someone thinking of a legacy controller like the D-Control. They still work, look and feel better than any of the new Pro Tools controller offerings out there today.

To clarify, none of them feel flimsy. Just not consistent. I can see how that's a big deal to some people though, especially considering the price point.

Sold my D.Control but have the Sigma which i agree, sounds killer. Looking forward to UC1/UF8. Hoping the Eucon functions can be accessed via Avid Control on an Ipad? Please post a pic!

I downloaded the demo version of the channel strip as well as the bus compressor, pulled up a song I’ve already been working on, took all the plug-ins off of it and then replaced with the SSL channel strip across all tracks, and then of course the bus compressor on my master. So I redid the whole mix with just the SSL plug-ins, just to see the impact of that one plug-in, I was blown away. It is light years better than the waves version. I know that doesn’t surprise anybody, but I was surprised it was that much different. I also have a 24 channel D command, and now I’ve got to figure out where I’m gonna place the UCI when it arrives.

I’m curious where do you place yours?

I get that it's new and there's a temptation for shiny things SSL, but a controller for two plugins, to add to a dcommand? I will wait for the next sale on the plugins and stay put controlling all my current plugins.

I will admit, I too have been tempted. The controller with a monitor and keyboard would make a great looking center section for my old blue dcommand 24.

I'll wait and see what the used market is. It's not like I need one.

I can see everyone with an SSL sigma buying one.

I second that. The D-command is such a fantastic plugin controller, no need for an extra controller, just to control two plugins. I don't quite get the enthusiasm yet. If one should like the SSL Native better, then just map the parameters to the right encoders - or is there a particular problem with the SSL plugin's?

I also think it's a little silly to conclude that this is something new and much better plugin than the Waves SSL. It's two completely different versions of the SSL channelstrip. It's all fine, but really just a matter of taste. They have both been around for a decade now.

And lastly, I'm still a bit sceptical about the idea that the UF8 should be a better alternative to the S1 or old ICON controllers. They are so much better integreted with Pro Tools than the UF8. Perhaps it's because I still haven't understood the full potentiale in the UF8/UC1/360 system?

I'm hoping to learn some more from the fine people here, when they get real hands on experience with this system. I'm about to upgrade one of my mixing rooms. Could be the UF8, UC1 and AVID control App, if it works together? Or S1's with UC1 and control app. Exiting times, isn't it

UC1 is good if you want to jump into the mindset workflow of working on a digital SSL console. Otherwise it makes no sense. Like you said, a controller for 2 plugins With that said, it's a fantastic idea again if you go the SSL concept. SSL has been releasing some truly excellent gear and software lately. It simply comes down to user needs.

Hello Barry, your ears are NOT deceiving you. The new v2 channel strip & Bus comp are "spot on" pertaining to the sound and workflow of real eq and comps on a 9000k console. You've got the mixing edge now! ;-)
As you and many are experiencing, the "game changing" moment here with the UC1 is not to control everything one owns in their "digital world & plugin folder" but instead, provide a true, large format console, mixing workflow and sound.

I have the UC1 on a "script tray" on top of the EQ & Dynamics section of the D-Control.

This is more or less it for me - even though i've expanded out into a fair bit of outboard in last couple of years, I've been using the SSL channel strip since Duende PCI came out, and with the outboard I generally don't need much more plugins than the SSL channel-strip / bus comp from an EQ / Comp point of view - of course, a Valhalla DSP controller would be savage though!! )

So for me that's really only using channel strip and bus comp UC1 is ideal, and complements my 500 series outboard really nicely.

Sounds like the UC1 will be an excellent addition to your system.

My hope is, Avid is going to follow SSL's lead and develop a dedicated EuCon controller for plugins only. Now you're controlling every plugin there is. I mean, this can't be difficult for them to do. The Dock already does this. It's just that the layout / ergonomics is not as fluid as it could be. I think for pro tools users they could corner the market with something akin to the UC1. Maybe now they will see the relevance of going for it. I would imagine the UC1's are flying off the shelves.

Maybe Avid is already at it...

If the hardware controller can one day jump to the instance that's on the current channel that you've selected in your DAW, that would be the final piece of the puzzle.

I've been critical of SSL's software development (or lack of) in the past but to me, this is simply better thought out and implemented product than the Softube stuff and in general, it seems to be great product that we've all been wanting for years. Seems like the tech and SSL's software dev's have caught up with what we've all been wanting!

SSL: please bring out a fully fledged transport module! 2-3 x UF8, a UC1 and a 'transport' module with a decent sized jog wheel and proper stop/play controls from the Nucleus or Matrix or such, would be a fantastic modular set up that can be purchased in stages, rather than having to fork out ££££ in one go!

Cheers,

Ed
Put all of these things in one device and it begins to sound like a solid punt at what the spec for Nucleus 3 might look like if you ask me.

Imagine a Nucleus with UC1 in the centre section…..

If AVID did that, it would be a dream come true for me, really perfect! But I'm not sure how realistic that is?

But, how about two S1's with the new auto mapping feature coming out...? I mean it's not as ergonomic and cool looking as the UC1. But still, imagine having 16 encoders, fully customizable?

Maybe it's possible to lay the parameters out in a intuitive way, using the same pattern with all of you plugins. As I understand it, you can program it so you just hit the channel, and the last plugin you used will open and from there you can scroll up and down your inserts.

Maybe even use color coding for the encoders. I guess it depends on your workflow. For me it's mostly traditional EQ/compression. Most of the time I don't need to look a the plugin GUI, because I know the controls so well. It might be just fine having the channelstrip laid out across the encoders from left to right. Kind of when I use a rack mounted EQ or compressor.

Then again there has been reports of people using Avid controllers with the UC1 and track following. Which the UF8 can't. So that might be the perfect combination, if the ergonomics are so much better on the UC1. But for me personally, I would have to see if SSL will open up the controller to other software developers. Imagine if Waves suddenly came on board?? Like UAD did with Console 1. Now that would be a game changer!

I'm interested in hearing how it goes with the UC1 and D-Control. That's a combination I wouldn't have thought of myself.

My UC1 is coming in a couple of weeks. Seems they have not got around to supplying to these parts of the world. Scandinavia.
I'm in no doubt; this is going to be the best buy I ever did.
That's because:
The SSL Native CS and BC is the most wonderful sounding plugins I ever heard.
I value the ability to mix without looking at a screen.
I value the "muscle memory" thing with using knobs that are not assignable but does the same thing all the time.
I'll be using the UC1 together with my Command8 and look forward to be able to not look at a screen, looking down on the controls and giving my brain full focus to what I'm hearing.
Back to the basics.

I use a mixture of Bx9000 and Waves CLA Mixhub on very channel. I hope Waves and Bx both adopt the platform. Were moving the studio at the moment, but as soon as it's up again i'll be checking out the UC1 channel strip. People seem to be raving about it.

I’d be curious what people’s thoughts are on how much closer to a physical console workflow they feel they get with this controller plus a couple fader packs.

Like, I’m wondering how many people think that having a single set of channel strip controls doesn’t do enough to get them to that console style workflow.

Sometimes I think that proper desks are so much of an afterthought... like whether it is an S6 type of thing or an Origin type of thing - maybe that should be the starting point in our brains and we can kind of shave it down to meet the real constraints of the space - as opposed to starting with the computer.

Because there is really every reason to be able to turn knobs on EQ’s on two separate channels simultaneously. The whole controlling one knob of one plugin of one track at a time thing I think has blinded a lot of the engineers to what can be done with a perhaps more appropriate tool than a mouse/keyboard.

After 1 week with the UC1, I have neither a want or a need to open other EQ/Compressors. I mainly use my mouse to open other special effects during mix setup and control other plugins with my X Touch. I won't need x touch once I get UF8. But the bottom line is the new SSL plugins sounds phenomenal and I use both hands on the UC1 and almost forget my computer screen is on. I actually let my screen go to sleep for the most part. I have had no issues with the UC1 disconnecting and the knobs have proper resistance after a week of use. So far Logic has the best setup to use the X touch with the UC1. I compared the SSL native to my UAD SSL and the console 1 and I must say the SSL Native sounds and feels like a real console...Maybe its mental because I can use my ears but it just works. Apollo Luna also works excluding fader controls but you can do this somewhat in 360. Pro tools does not play well with X touch so Im kinda blah about that. Studio one is in the middle of the road but UC1 seems to work well with every DAW I tried. Workflow and creativity increased over 60%. This unit is ideal for anyone that likes real physical consoles. Remember, if you mixed on an SSL, you didn't have neve, api, or any other channel on the console and you still had great mixes. Please do your own research and decide if this is right for you. It just happens to fill my needs.. Unconscious Bias to SSL maybe. Well I still use my other compressors like the basics.. 1176 Distressor LA2A ect. Maybe a Pultec But not on every Chan mostly buss Channels.

A nice thing about these virtual console workflows is that it organizes how you use the other plugins... like you can hear right away if something is going to need either surgical repair or harmonic enhancement - put the appropriate process on the track, get it in the ballpark, and then do that to 15% of the tracks or whatever - and then it’s just knobs and faders the rest of the way with the console emulation

Like I see other guys have tons of success tweaking one plugin, then putting another on for a bit of edge, then another on to soften the edge, then another to fatten it, then another to squeeze it.

I’ve never had any success that way.

Question for those using UC1, what do you do when you want a 4000E, just put a decapitator or similar on the UC1 strip? Doesn't using non-360 plugins kind of defeat the purpose? The studio is down now so i can't demo the plugs. Thanks.
