SSL bus compressor hardware not working with logic pro X

Hi guys,


I bought an ssl x logic stereo for my 2 bus but it won't be working with logic pro X ( the niddle is not movin while playin with all the settings like thresholds etc ) .


The ssl is connected with unbalanced cables with the apollo uad X6 : apollo out 1/2 to input 1/2 ssl and output 1/2 ssl to input 1/2 uad . I use a stereo I/O plugin from logic and selected 1/2 input and 1/2 output . The only change when I turn on the iO plugin in logic is an increase in output of 3 db or smthin.

Appart from that the ssl lights are on .

I don't know what's wrong ...

any idea ?

Shouldn't your main outs 1/2 be for your studio monitors? I would use the 3/4 main outs and send that to your hardware compressor. Then take that back into your inputs 1/2 of your interface.
Also, the line outs should be balanced. I do not know your interface, but most interface main outs are balanced line level, not unbalanced. Refer to the PDF ,if you are unsure

I fixed it . actually there was a problem with the I/O matrice in logic pro X



thks


so it works with unbalanced cables but would it sound better with balanced cables ? I heard that unbalanced cables are better for the signal than balanced as long as they are not above 3 ft
