It really depends on how the SSP will integrate in your workflow, and also where you are at in general, regarding music production / sound design.
Do you want to create sound with it? Do you want to process sound with it? Do you want to control you eurorack with it? Do you want to use it as an interface between eurorack and DAW?
There are many cases where the SSP will find its use for you
I bought the SSP 9 months ago, and I use it almost everytime I make music. I still didn’t even touch some of the possibilities, because the way I use it currently occupies my mind enough for now.
What I do with it: Use the SSP to receive CV signals and audio from my DAW Bitwig, and control samplers, granular samplers, oscillators and eurorack modules with the signals from Bitwig. It’s an absolute dream of a workflow for me, so already in its current shape the SSP has blown my mind.
Just to make a quick comparison between SSP and other modules:
Take the ES-9, a 600 dollar module, that allows you to send and receive CV and audio from your DAW similar to SSP. Then, you take a step sequencer, a sampler and a reverb module, and you’re already up to 2000 dollars. So just a fraction of what the SSP can do, you would need more space in your eurorack and pay more money.
I don’t say I don’t want more features for the SSP, I have tons of wishes for the SSP. But for what it’s capable of right now, there is no module that comes even close in my opinion.
I’d recommend either using Ableton Live’s CV Tools, VCV Rack VST or Bitwig’s Grid to integrate the SSP with your DAW.
For example, you can create an infinite amount of CV signals, Gate triggers and modulations in Bitwig, and save them. These signals then go out to the SSP, where they play samplers and also go out to other modules. This allows me to constantly keep jamming and saving all the good grooves.
Save different template presets. I have saved templates where each input is routed to various effect chains, so whenever I start my DAW and the SSP, I know already where I can send audio to and how the routing looks like.
So yeah - it took me a while to get into the SSP, but now it’s pretty much at the center of what I’m doing.
