Specifications

Recommended System Specs to build a Soundscape System

SSL Soundscape V7 and the SSL MX4 PCIe Card will run on virtually any recent Windows PC with a free PCIe Slot. It is tested on Windows 7 (32 Bit and 64 Bit) with at least 2GB of RAM. It is tested on Windows XP, Vista (32Bit and 64 Bit) and Windows 7 (32 Bit and 64 Bit) with at least 2GB of RAM.
In order to get most out of the SSL Hybrid Core Processing audio engine, we recommend you use branded and superior components for Motherboards, CPU, PSU and RAM. The more CPU Cores you have, the better the performance.

CPU OS Storage Graphics Chipset
Recommended System for 64 Tracks at 48kHz/24Bit
Intel Core-i3 or higher (Sandybridge-based) or equivalent AMD Windows 7 (32 Bit or 64 Bit Internal or external (USB/Firewire/eSATA) SATA Drive 7.2k RPM Modern ATI or NVIDIA PCIe GPU Intel Chipset recommended
Recommended System for 128 Tracks at 48kHz/24Bit
Intel Core-i5 Quad or higher (Sandybridge-based) or equivalent AMD Windows 7 (32 Bit or 64 Bit Fast internal or external (FW 800 or eSATA) SATA Drive with 7.2kRPM and Minimum Read/Write of 55MB/sec Modern ATI or NVIDIA PCIe GPU Intel Chipset recommended
Recommended "Power User" System
Intel Core-i7 Quad (Haswell-based) system Windows 7 (32 Bit or 64 Bit Fast internal RAID (0, 3 or 5) with a minimum of 70 MB/sec Read/Write Modern ATI or NVIDIA PCIe GPU Intel Chipset recommended

Net-Working:

If you are planning to collaborate with several Soundscape systems over a gigabit Ethernet network and some attached central storage (NAS), you should plan in some time for configuration and testing and look out for the following components:

  • NAS (network attached storage): There are several vendors of RAID based NAS systems. You can configure a RAID System for performance, security or both. If you are planning a multi seat storage network, make sure, that it fits your security requirements and add a 50% buffer to your speed requirements. For instance if you need 50 MB/sec Read/Write minimum to run your projects on multiple seats, make sure that the storage is capable of 75MB/sec sustained R/W.
  • Switch: Use a "managed Switch" from a well known vendor. These switches typically filter "Broadcast" data to all clients and attempt to optimise the flow of data to the single client that requested it.
  • Gigabit Frame Setup: Any Switch, NAS and Network Adapter inside the PC can setup the Ethernet Frame size (Jumbo Frames). Make sure to set up the frame size to the same value on anything inside your network and give yourself some time to experiment and find the optimal settings.

Soundscape Upgrades

A range of options are available for existing Soundscape owners to Upgrade to Soundscape V7. They are available exclusively from the SSL Online Store.

Upgrade Eligibility

This Upgrade scheme will be available to all users of:

  • Valid (non upgraded) Mixtreme/Mixtreme 192 cards
  • Valid (non upgraded) Mixpander 5/9 Power Packs (or SSL Mixpander 5 cards)
  • Valid (non upgraded) Users of any Soundscape System: SSHDR1, SSHDR1+, R.Ed16/24/32 and SS16/32 Systems

To quality for an Upgrade you will need to provide us with evidence of your existing Soudscape system ownership by registering your system in your SSL User Profile. During registration you will need to provide the Unique ID Number (formerly called DSP SN) for your hardware unit. The registration facility will become available when Soundscape V6 ships (currently scheduled for May 2010).

Note; Hardware units which have previously been upgraded will not be eligible for an upgrade, EG if you previously upgraded an SSHDR1 to a Soundscape 32 your SSHDR1 is not eligible but your Soundscape 32 is.
