Solid State Logic, the world’s leading manufacturer of professional analogue and digital audio consoles, announced that the new RTAS versions of the acclaimed SSL Duende Native plug-in collection are available now on SSL web site. Existing plug-in owners can download new software installers free of charge from the SSL web site and the new installer will be supplied as standard to all new customers.
“Although the Duende Native plug-in collection has always been available with an included RTAS wrapper, which has worked very well for most users, some users reported limitations when using the wrapped plug-ins within Pro Tools® DAW architecture in conjunction with DAW Controller hardware. These new native RTAS versions completely address those concerns and make the superb sound of SSL plug-ins even more appealing to Pro Tools® users worldwide.” says Niall Feldman, Director Of New Products at SSL.
The release of the new RTAS versions of the plug-ins coincides with the availability of a new set of Duende Native Tour/Tutorial Videos on the SSL Web Site and YouTube.
The Duende Native Plug-in suite is a collection of audio processing tools which bring professional audio quality, sophistication and benchmark performance within reach of all DAW users. Duende plug-ins provide the superior precision, advanced feature set and legendary tonal characteristics of SSL console products in affordable VST/AU/RTAS* plug-in form. They are quite simply the easiest way to get your hands on professional tools that will help you make professional mixes that sound like a record.
The foundations of the Duende Native collection are plug-in adaptations of two SSL console classics; the EQ & Dynamics Channel plug-in provides an EQ & Dynamics processing solution with all the power, precision, flexibility and signature tone of an SSL console channel strip… the legendary Stereo Bus Compressor plug-in gives you the classic SSL stereo master bus compressor that brings power and punch to your mix without compromising clarity. In addition to these SSL classics Duende Native includes Drumstrip and Vocalstrip which are ‘task specific’ plug-ins that each gather together a set of carefully selected and lovingly crafted processing tools to get you straight to outstanding Drum and Vocal sounds quickly and easily. X-EQ and X-Comp are both mastering grade processors that deliver superb balance of precision and tonal character. X-Verb is an incredibly powerful and flexible processor which brings beautiful hardware standard Reverb to your DAW.
All Duende Native Plug-ins are available for a free, fully functional initial 30 day demo AND for ongoing periodic free demos. Duende Native plug-ins are available to buy individually from the SSL web store.
