Solid State Logic in Oxford, UK, announces the release of Duende Native audio processing plug-ins for VST, Audio Units, and RTAS (which requires using an FXpansion wrapper), which are fully 64-bit capable and said to be functionally and sonically identical to the now discontinued DSP powered Duende plug-ins. Duende plug-ins are designed to offer precision, an advanced feature set and the tonal characteristics of SSL console products.
Duende Native plug-ins include EQ & Dynamics Channel ($329), the Stereo Bus Compressor ($329), Drumstrip ($199), Vocalstrip ($199), X-EQ ($299) and X-Comp ($199) mastering grade processors, and X-Verb ($359) reverb processor.
Duende Native plug-ins are available individually from the SSL Web store. Two boxed product bundles—Duende Native Essentials ($479, which includes EQ & Dynamics Channel and Stereo Bus Compressor) and the Duende Native Studio Pack ($1,099, which includes EQ & Dynamics Channel, Stereo Bus Compressor, Drumstrip, Vocalstrip, X-EQ and X-Comp)—are available exclusively from SSL resellers worldwide.
All Duende Native Plug-ins are available for a free, fully functional initial 30-day demo and for ongoing periodic free demos.
