Imagine being able to access your favourite combinations of analogue outboard equipment and apply them to your project without ever leaving the console.
The Matrix2 Insert Router is like having a supremely versatile and controllable patch bay built into the console. You physically connect up to 16 hardware devices to the 16 insert points on the console (using rear panel standard D-Sub connections) but unlike a traditional console you are able to select which of these devices are applied to which console channels 'on the fly'. The system even lets you build 'chains' of processors so that you can immediately recall and insert a favourite combination of mic pre, EQ and Dynamics... or instantly swap individual processors within the chain... or instantly change the process order of the chain...without leaving the console. With Matrix2 Devices and chains can either be created and inserted using hardware buttons on the console surface or a simple drag and drop software interface running on a computer. Matrix2 is the closest thing you will find to using hardware devices like software plug-ins within your DAW. The workflow of the Insert Router may feel like software but the signal path is 100% SSL SuperAnalogue? hardware.Delta-Control (D-Ctrl)
The unique new SSL console automation system unites the very best of automation in the analogue console domain with DAW based workflow.
The ?-Ctrl Single Fader Plug-in is a native AAX/AU/VST/VST3 plug-in that allows automation of Matrix channel volume as if it were a DAW plug-in. Inserting 16 instances into the DAW session will allow control of volumes and cuts for all 16 Matrix channels. The automation system in the DAW is used to record and playback Matrix volume control data entered either directly from the console faders or from the fader in the plug-in GUI. Matrix? Volume and Mute switch are represented as plug-in parameters in the D-Ctrl plug-in GUI and their automation data is recorded to the automation lane of the selected DAW channel. In playback, the plug-in converts the stored automation data from the DAW into D-Ctrl messages and routes these back to Matrix via the network connection.16-Fader Matrix Plug-In
The 16-fader Delta Control Matrix plug-in provides compatibility to Logic users, as well as offering an alternative workflow to the Single Fader plug-in users. The plug-in is available in all formats including AAX/AU/VST3/VST. The 16-fader plug-in allows users to write automation for Matrix? 16 channel faders, mutes, and FX sends from one plug-in window, solving Logic?s inherent limitation of only being able to write data to one plug-in at a time.Control your DAW
At the heart of your studio, Matrix2 reaches out to give comprehensive control over your DAW environment, reinstating the console to its role as creative hub.
With HUI or MCU modes, the 16 motorised faders and channel controls provide complete hands-on control over your DAW mixer, allowing you to enjoy mixing on a tactile, fully-featured control surface. Additionally, Matrix2 gives you access to transport & navigation functions, plug-in & virtual instrument parameters, and essential DAW commands, allowing you to work quickly and easily using just the console surface.
For crucial track adjustment, our unique 'Focus Fader' mode enables the Master Fader (and accompanying V-Pot) to control any channel within your DAW environment that is not part of the currently selected DAW layer, perfect for time saving in mixdown.??????????? ?????????? ? ????? ?????????????
