Does anyone have experience with interface?
Does it have latency issues? How does it sound?

I have the SSL2, since I'm mostly tracking guitar or vocals separately I didn't the co-op stuff.
It sounds great, the only thing I can compare it with is the Apogee One (which I hade for years before the SSL), and it sounds bigger than the One. It's airy, warm and crisp. The 4K button does add a nice sizzle, that I really enjoy on both guitars and vocals. This might be a placebo, but I perceive the SSL as more quiet and with more headroom than the One.

You can mix what you want to hear, between input and DAW, which is so smooth and easy, I can't hear/feel any latency at all.
Also, the separate monitor/headphone volumes is nice.

The only downside I've encountered this far is it's size. It's quite a unit, and coming from the Apogee it's a beast compared.
But given the cost and what you get (the SSL plugs is a nice bouns), 10/10 for me.

Great, thanks for the input. I wanted to buy
The Audient ID14 but all Audient interfaces
Are sold out everywhere.

I don't think you'll be disappointed with the SSL.
It's a solid performer and the layout of it really makes working with it simple and smooth.
I would buy and recommend over and over.
