UC1/UF8 user and yes you can control your sends via one of the function keys at the top.

Ah I see now why you are using your console 1 as a rackmounted plugin control ! Very good makes good sense.

Hi freezerman, can you explain a little more ?
Are we talking about "in Channelmode" and controling the Sends 1-8 fliped to the Faders 1-8 ?

Thanks mate

Here's my current setup with UC1, paired with a touch screen monitor on Mac Mini M1.

The touch capability really speeds me up selecting the channels (i'm on Pro Tools) on SSL 360 Software, just touch the channel name and the selected channel will sync on the UC1. I've been thinking about this setup long before the UC1 arrives in Indonesia, I bought a touchscreen monitor first just to trained my muscle memory and stay away from pro tools window, then the UC1 coming and everything's perfect for me

Difficult to find one of these right now in the US. Does anyone know, if one was to order from Europe and have it shipped to the US, can the unit run at either 220 or 110, and could the power cable into the PSU safely be switched out to a standard 110v IEC cable?

Look at the pic that shows the cables.

Edit: well, at first, I thought the second from the top on the left was a US cable, but after having a second look it looks like an EU cable. Looks like these pics were made for European retailers. I would assume that the power supply is 110/220 switchable, but what do I know…

Interesting, I hadn't even noticed that it had the EU cable in the pics. I think you're probably right about the PSU being switchable, but I don't have any experience with EU IEC cables, and I'm hoping maybe the female end is the same as a US cable, and therefore swappable. I'll write to SSL and see what they say.

My SSL UC1 PSU for use in UK

One end has the “kettle” lead insert
The other end is fixed in with a ferrite on and tip for insert into UC1

I'm an idiot! Was on mobile and didn't see your earlier post related to Pro Tools. We're using the UC1/UF8 on our Nuendo rigs. I have ProTools so am just looking into it now to see what I can find.

Edit:

I'm no HUI expert but it seems you can only control sends 1-5 (A-E) I believe it's a HUI protocol limitation

"But there is one thing i do miss here. If i am in Pro Tools with my UF8 in Channelmode i am able to use the V-Pots 1-8 to control Sends A-H ...but i can't flip the Send-Controls down to the Fader 1-8. Is that a common thing with the HUI Protocol ?"

Flip works fine for sends 1-5 (A-E). I do like that the flip button flashes in HUI mode. Much better that the static MCU protocol. When you select the flip button is nothing happening for you?

Does anyone else here think that the previous version of the bus compressor (v6.2) sounds way better than the new version?

Thats surprising, i feel the previous one reacts so much nicer to transients. Comparing the two on drum bus, i’m not a fan of the later version at all.
Gutted that i can’t control the old one with the UC1!

IMO new one is a Class better. 4x oversampling and it Handels transients like a champ. I have a hard time to use anything else right now on my mixbus

Maybe its just because i’m so used to the action of the older one. Will spend some more time with it!

That could be the reason. Or you just prefer the old one. Not a bad plugin as far as I remember.

And make sure to use the new version oversampled to 4x. It handles transients better.

Yes it is nice with the OS but a little useless in nuendo when bypassing . Really needs to be sorted out, presumably with an update. Fine when not using the OS.
The only way around it is to use the mix knob to see the difference.

Hi, no Problem I am very thankful for your help =)

And Yes, if I Push the Flip Button in --> Channelmode <-- nothing happens. In "normal" Mode it flashes..and I´ve got Track1/Send1 on Fader 1 and Track 2/Send 1 on Fader 2 and so on. But as mentioned I would like to control sends A-E of Track 1 only ....with Faders 1-5 in Channelmode.

I appreciate it very much if you've find a solution.

Cheers Buddy

This One will come with the EU Package. But I think you should drop SSL a Line about that.

Cheers

They do. Silky Highs (if you need them) , everything seems to be more "in Phase".....

I agree that the channel strip 2 sounds better, looks better too with the updated GUI.
The bus compressor 2 on the other hand just doesn’t seem as effective, like you have to push it way harder to achieve similar results to the old version.
Where i notice it most is on the drum bus - if you set the attack to fastest on the old compressor it completely removes the transient. Try the same settings on the new one and you have that awkward clicky/poppy sound where it just doesn’t seem to react effectively enough - like the waves version and many other plugin comps.
Just my humble opinion anyway

Hi thanks for sharing i appreciate different perspectives.

Its funny because its exact that "Clicky" Sound you described I love to death. Try it parallel on Kicks/Snares my Friend.

i don't know if its just for me but I don't care about such things like "pushing" Signals more or less. If it sounds good for you its good... right? ..If not skip the Plugin.

Cheers

You’re absolutely right. I’m just a bit gutted that the UC1 hardware only works with the compressor that i’m not too keen on.
Would be amazing if they added a ‘legacy’ button to toggle between the new and old algorithms.

Understandable. Let's see what's coming in the Future from SSL. Maybe there will be a "Legacy" Option. Good Idea!

The way V2 handles transients is exactly what makes it more SSL for me. Punchy and snap, one may say.

That's something even hardware clones struggle to achieve when emulating the SSL Bus Compressor sound.

Switch off oversampling and you ll get the exact version 6.2 equivalent ...

If you still have both plugs installed you should compare them side by side, they are completely different in terms of action. Especially at the fast attack times and regardless of oversampling unfortunately
