I asked them and they said that it can do loopback.

So my Focusrite 2i2 (On Windows 10) I could have Reaper, Spotify, Chrome, etc all open and switch between them to play audio. With the SSL 2, if I open Reaper, the rest stop working. Is this a driver thing? =o Any way to make it act like the 2i2 did?


EDIT: I think I fixed it, facepalm. I had Reaper changing the sample rate, unchecked that to keep the base SSL driver sample rate, and all is well.

Could you guys please expand a little on this "bend" phenom if you get a mo.

Not in regards to the SSL 2 's ability to mimic it or not....

in the sense that I'm very interested in the history/legacy of certain classic gear and in changing audio engineering techniques.

Ive previously heard reference to an impact on the stereo image on the 2bus when driving the headroom on legacy SSL consoles (i think thats what was being described).....and of course saturating the signal paths to the 2bus

is that the "bend" to which you are both referring?

and what sort of sonic characteristic does it manifest as?

Ive had a good search across t'internet and can't find any other reference to it.

id be very grateful for any shared knowledge . thanks

ps. SSL 2 and SSL SIX combo killing it for me here still ...respect to SSL

I’ve found one favorable comment about this thing over a Duet 2 in this thread but I’d love to hear other opinions. My Duet 2 is still going strong after quite a few years, but I’m always keeping an ear open for what to replace it with if it ever stops working. Seems like this is a direct competitor.

I'm currently trying to decide between the Apollo Twin X and the SSL2+.. Can anybody give me an honest comparison? - For vocals with Neumann Tlm 103 btw

I have a Twin X here and lots of other converters... i can tell you that the TwinX is awesome .. wth that said we just did a mix for live stream out of one rig in to another .. out of a Rosetta200 into a SSL2 with the 4k button pressed and it sounds awesome aswell .. it all depends on your workflow, money, do you want to get into the UAD stuff etc.. im sure the SSL will treat you just fine .. but i KNOW the Twin X is a frekin beast
