Offline Software

The SSL OffLine Setup Application or SOLSA allows creation and editing of Live console Showfiles on your laptop or desktop PC. Almost anything that can be done on a console can now be manipulated and configured ‘offline’ when access to a console is not possible.

This includes console architecture configuration and setup of Fader Tile Layers and Banks. Stageboxes and I/O routing can also be assigned along with the creation of scenes and other automation editing. SOLSA also allows you to add effects, 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.

The software is compatible with both L500 and L300, with an option to switch between the two models. This makes sure the correct resources for each console are made available and that Showfiles are saved in the correct format.

SOLSA is not a software console! The software is intended to enable engineers to configure Showfiles in preparation for shows and is of course a fantastic way for anybody to explore and learn about the SSL Live console. The software does not pass audio. Don't expect it to see your audio interface!

SOLSA is a powerful sophisticated application and consequently requires a powerful computer to run.
