DAW CONTROL ON THE SSL DESK FOR Logic and Ableton Live

SSL desk is designed to act as a control surface for Pro tools, as well as analog mixing desk. Clever beast.

However, you can also use it to act as a controller for Logic and Ableton Live, courtesy of the Mackie Control Protocol.

You can switch between which DAW the desk interacts with via the Center LCD Screen.

Choose the SSL dialog (using the top right button of the first long panel of grey buttons)

Select DAW (one left from the button you just pressed)

Select DAW 2

Switch from desk to DAW mode

You should now see DAW channel names in the desk, the faders will control channels in your DAW, you can use the start and stop buttons and much more!!!!

NB Please see the SSL Manual section 5.1 for a full account of DAW control, including details of how to use it with Pro Tools.

To use the desk ‘as a normal desk’ again, hit the DAW mode button (green) again.

NB Please switch the desk back to DAW 1 at the end of your session.

Thanks!
