SSL 2 / 2+ are class compliant and work directly with macOS. There is no macOS driver.
- macOS 11, 10.15, 10.14, 10.13, 10.12, & 10.11 are tested and supported.
- As of December 2020, SSL 2 will work on new M1 ARM processors, but the extra bundled plugin software is not currently tested on Big Sur.
- macOS 10.10 and below are untested. Operation may work but is not guaranteed. Our recommendation is to upgrade to a supported OS.
SSL 2 / 2+ require our ASIO driver to be installed on Windows.
- Windows 10 and 8.1 are tested and supported.
- Windows 7 and 8 are untested. Operation may work but is not guaranteed. Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft, and SSL interfaces were launched after Microsoft ended Windows 7 support. For these reasons, SSL will not be testing or supporting Windows 7; if you are unable to get your interface to work in Windows 7, please update to a supported version.
The connector on the back of the SSL 2 series is USB-C.
SSL provides both USB-C and USB-A cables. The type of USB connector on your computer will determine which cable to use.
SSL interfaces are USB 2.0 compliant and it will make no difference the type of cable connector you use on your computer side.
Newer computers may have USB-C, whereas older computers have USB-A.
Yes SSL is compatible with USB 4.0 because USB 4.0 is backwards compatible with previous USB specifications.
The SSL 2 is USB bus powered and will turn on and off with your computer unless you use an always on charging port. It is ok to leave the interface always on, but for saving electricity it is ok to turn it off too. Some always-on ports can be disabled in BIOS.
SSL recommend 10 feet or less. Your mileage may vary at longer lengths.
