New SSL Nucleus Controller/Audio Hub for Pro Project Studios


Solid State Logic, is proud to present Nucleus, a unique, high-quality DAW Controller and SuperAnalogueâ„¢ Audio Hub for professional project studios at Winter NAMM 2011 (Booth 6904, Hall A). Nucleus is the perfect blend of workstation control and superb audio performance.

Nucleus re-defines the professional project studio with a combination of advanced DAW control, transparent SuperAnalogueâ„¢ monitoring, high-class analogue mic pres, pro quality USB audio interface and bundled SSL Duende plug-ins. There is no other product available which offers the professional producer/engineer all these elements, with benchmark audio performance and elegant ergonomics. Not only is it unique, but Nucleus also offers outstanding value; these elements bought separately would cost more and deliver a less elegant solution.

Nucleus is a compact desktop unit that creates a comfortable, efficient, hands-on operating environment for DAW-based Music production. It provides everything you need to record and monitor audio while controlling your DAW quickly and efficiently without resorting to your mouse. Nucleus streamlines your workflow and helps you focus on your sound, not your screen.
