    Versatile and Powerful

    I'd been wanting to get a controller with motorized faders for a while, so I set off on my research. I use Ableton, so I was restricted to controllers that use the Mackie control protocol. In my budget range this left me exploring the Behringer X Tough, the Mackie MCU Pro, some of the ICON controllers, and the SSL unit. The Behringer had been out for quite a while, and didn't seem like it was receiving much recent support. Further, many of the buttons are inactive in Ableton, and I was looking for as much of an 'out of the box' experience as possible. I hate wasting time mapping MIDI, so the Behringer was out, and as it was heavily based on the Mackie MCU which had many of the same issues, that controller was also out. The price on the ICON units were attractive, and it looked like they would integrate with Ableton well enough, but after poking around in some ICON Pro Audio Users Facebook groups, it was evident that the company rushes out products with incomplete firmware, hardware, and software features, is slow in addressing those issues, and that many users were frustrated with the constant troubleshooting and bugs they on the units. I want to spend my time making music, not troubleshooting bugs and hardware issues, so anything from ICON was out as well. This left me with what should have been the obvious choice to begin with - the SSL UF1, UF8, and UC1 combo, and I have been very happy with my choice. Since Ableton controls all mixing controllers via what is essentially a 20 year old protocol in Mackie Control, the screens and meters on most controllers are slow to respond, and certain constraints like track name character limits (and how it gets truncated) can be frustrating. But here the SSL has a BIG advantage, as it can be run in "Plug In Mode", where it pulls gain and track names and colors and etc from the channel strip plugin on each track instead. This means I can run this controller in Ableton, and have very responsive metering on the screens, along with what feels like a much more modern user experience over-all. I don't know of any other motorized fader controller that has this 'second layer' advantage in Ableton. The unit itself is very well built, and it feels a treat to work the knobs, faders, buttons, and encoders. If I had ONE small complaint, it would be that I wish the UF1 would automatically enter plug in mixer mode when I put the UF8 into plug in mixer mode. The UF1 requires you to press two buttons simultaneously to enter the mode (either requiring two hands, or one hand but with a big 'finger stretch), while on the UF8 you can enter plug in mixer mode it via two separate clicks with one finger. It's a little easier, and I wish the UF1 would follow along. With nearly 15 hours of experience now in working this hardware, if that's the only complaint I have then I am a VERY happy camper! I don't think the UC1 is required for a great control experience, but I enjoy getting out of the box and setting compressors and EQ with my fingers and ears rather than my eyes is a good thing (though, you can also monitor your EQ cuts on the UF1's screen if you want). HIGHLY recommend this unit, especially for people using Ableton, as the second layer plug in mixer REALLY takes this experience to another level compared to pretty much any other controller.
