Solid State Logic’s Offline Setup software for the SSL Live console is now available for free download. The SSL OffLine Setup Application, or SOLSA, allows creation and editing of Live console Showfiles on a laptop or desktop PC. Almost anything that can be done on a Live console can now be manipulated and configured ‘offline’ when access to a console is not possible.
Software functionality includes console architecture configuration and setup of Fader Tile Layers and Banks. Stageboxes and I/O routing can be assigned along with the creation of scenes and other automation editing. SOLSA also allows you to add effects, and manipulate channel processing settings, bus routing, and VCA assignments. SOLSA includes the same Help System as the Live console software, offering a built-in user guide with tutorials and reference sections.
SOLSA is intended to enable engineers to configure Showfiles in preparation for shows but it is a fantastic way for anybody to explore and learn about the SSL Live console.
