Music Gear Review: SSL Sigma Delta 2.0 Update

The SSL Sigma is Solid-State-Logic's SuperAnalogue mix engine system capable of summing up to 16 stereo stems from your DAW’s analog I/O to either of its two, internal stereo buses. Sigma has complete analog monitoring, headphone, talkback and processing insert capabilities.

Recently SSL updated the Sigma Remote Control with Sigma delta-Control 2.0, an all-new Remote Control App with Mackie Control Universal protocol used for direct control of Sigma from other SSL MCU Controllers including their AWS and Duality consoles and Nucleus products. The free update to the delta-Control comes with all the tools and firmware files to update both the Sigma and Nucleus products to use MCU over TCP/IP network-based UDP control protocol instead of embedded MIDI messaging.

I’ve also been enjoying SSL’s new delta-Ctrl DAW plug-in ($85.75 download). It runs Native AAX/RTAS/VST/VST3 and uses the host’s DAW’s plug-in automation to control Channel level in full 10-bit resolution, Cut, EQ in/Out, Insert In/Out, Cue St, and FX 1, 2, 3, 4 of a Duality console, a lot of the AWS board’s functionality and Sigma’s 16 Channel Levels and Cuts only.

The new SSL Sigma delta software and firmware version of the Remote Control App and MCU control will be free to existing Sigma owners.
