Key Info

This is an advanced DAW controller featuring eight touch-sensitive motorised faders, endless rotary encoders, colour displays and and intelligent channel encoder.

Accelerated creativity, intelligent production UF8 is SSL’s latest studio controller, designed for today’s DAW-based production workflows and ultrafast turn-around times. An expandable 8-channel advanced DAW controller, UF8 connects engineers, producers and artists directly to the creative process, offering absolute command of their workflow and significantly accelerating the speed of audio production and content creation.

UF8 is the culmination of SSL’s 40+ year legacy of mastering production workflows and studio ergonomics built into generations of classic SSL consoles. This depth of understanding of studio production, combined with decades of engineering excellence, delivers a premium finish tactile USB controller that distills SSL workflow and quality.

Music Creation & Production With UF8 at the heart of your studio setup, you can effortlessly navigate through large sessions and focus on the music, instead of the mouse. Hi-res displays with constant visual feedback and intuitive layout of controls allow you to stay creative for longer.

Content Creation & Webcasting Whether you need to solo tracks quickly or access your most used editing functions from the touch of a button, UF8 will help you create more engaging content for your audiences, faster and more efficiently.

Post-Production UF8 is perfect for finessing your dialogue automation rides and assigning all your essential session shortcuts to the user-keys for enhanced productivity, tailored to suit your post workflow.

Music Mixing Put some feel back into your mixing with UF8's 100 mm high-quality motorised faders, perfect for balancing multiple tracks at once or riding your reverb sends. Scale your system up to 32 faders (4 UF8s), for the full SSL mix experience.

Advanced Workflow UF8 offers intuitive features that are developed from a true understanding of production workflow; Simultaneous control of multiple DAWs, multi-purpose Master Encoder for DAW timeline navigation, track banking and mouse wheel emulation for precision, hands-on control.

Dedicated automation section and dual-purpose Selection Keys permit rapid access to select functions; solo and mute clearing in Pro Tools® and Logic Pro X®. New CHANNEL and PLUG-IN control modes provide enhanced workflows for those using UF8 with Pro Tools® - easily access your sends and plug-ins without slowing down your creativity.

100 mm Touch-Sensitive Faders Quality feel, engineered response and a volume curve that keeps engineers in the sweet spot. Anyone who has driven an SSL console knows not all faders are equal.

Hi-Resolution Colour Displays Constant, clear visual feedback that only a full colour, high resolution display can provide. Key track information including level, pan, routing and names can be found here, keeping you focused on what matters.

8 Endless Rotary Encoders V-POT technology and workflow as found in SSL AWS and Duality consoles. Seamlessly jump between parameters whist maintaining absolute control.

Intelligent CHANNEL Encoder Featuring mouse scroll emulation, control any plug-in parameter you hover the mouse over with precision.

Custom Workflows Configure essential shortcuts and custom macros for total session control via the 43 assignable, backlit user keys found on UF8.

Human Engineering For perfect positioning, each UF8 includes a pair of adjustable stands allowing for six different angles of elevation for user defined placement. 19” rack mount kits are also available.

And if you don't love me now... Chain multiple UF8's together to create your unique mixing system; build your perfect 16-24 channel music creation hub, or connect 4 UF8’s within a single system to create a 32-channel controller ideal for large post production or mixing sessions.

The rear panel of UF8 features a USB 'C' type port for easy connection to the host computer ('C' to 'C' and 'C' to 'A' cables included with UF8), two jack sockets offering standard foot-switch connections and a socket for UF8's auto ranging external PSU. The USB 'A' port on UF8 can be used to daisy-chain USB communication between UF8s, or, it can be used to plug in any USB dongles you have.
