The SSL Way

Created to provide users with that rugged hands-on approach that SSL have always delivered - free up your computer mouse and experience mixing as it should be, with extended functionality, responsive controls and detailed adjustments. Perfect for any application from music, to film to tv - the Nucleus 2 combined incredibly high audio with a streamlined workflow to help you focus on your sound.. not your screen!

DAW Control

Using technologies developed for SSL's full-sized Matrix mixing console, the Nucleus 2 prides itself on its concise and compacted approach. Ideal for smaller studio spaces where a full-sized mixing desk is both unjustifiably large and expensive, the Nucleus 2 allows for similar functionality, using an innovative array of features designed to benefit the user experience.

With full compatibility for all major applications, connect up to 3 different DAWs simultaneously and conveniently switch between with a single button press. Transmit MIDI CC data and utilize dedicated and assignable hardware controls to easily control all major DAW and plug-in parameters - perfect for a smoother workflow experience when working on projects.

Simple, Yet Advanced Connectivity

To enable DAW control and Dante Audio, the Nucleus 2 connects to your computer via high-speed Ethernet connection. However, connect via a standard USB connection and your Nucleus 2 will perform as a regular keyboard, enabling key command emulation. Complete with a built-in USB hub, a standard jack footswitch connection and an SD card slot to store user-profiles - the Nucleus 2 is ready to meet your user-customizable needs.

SSL Native Plug-ins

Insistent on providing you with the full, world-renowned, Solid State Logic experience, they have generously included their SSL Native Essentials bundle with each Nucleus 2 purchase. These highly sought-after plug-ins feature an SSL Channel EQ, SSL Dynamics Channel and an SSL Stereo Bus Compressor.

Modelled on their classic analogue counterparts, these plugins are a welcome, high-quality addition to the Nucleus 2 experience, ensuring you have both the tools and the software to get the job done!
