SSL DAW protocol


I am planning to connect my analogue SSL studio console for Ardour for test purpose only. Which protocol of DAW interface should iI choose in mixer options?

Thank you for your time :slight_smile:

You need to be more specific - what kind of SSL console and what do you want to do with it and Ardour?

SSL Duality SE.

Ardour from latest Ubuntu Studio.

I am planning to connect with ethernet cable

You should plan to use Mackie Control with Ardour. Probably needs a new device info file, which is very simple to create.

If I remember correctly the Duality does midi over IP, using IPMidi on other platforms. Nucleus support already exists in Ardour3, which uses a similar approach, so as Paul says, a new device file could be needed but there is a reasonable chance of this working. Out of interest can I ask which studio this Duality is in ?

is there any graphical control for making this changes ?

No, you need to create the device profile in a text editor. It is fairly straightforward, and you should be able to look at existing device profiles, especially the Nucleus for guidance.
