Solid State Logic, a leading manufacturer of professional digital and analog consoles, is proud to announce the release of Duende Native. Duende Native plug-ins are functionally and sonically identical to the highly acclaimed, now-discontinued DSP powered Duende plug-ins, but they run natively using your host computer’s processing resources.
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 achieve 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, while 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.
Duende Native is fully 64-bit capable on suitable systems. On the Mac, Duende Native requires OS X 10.5.8 or 10.6.3 and beyond (32 and 64-bit kernel), an Intel Dual Core CPU running at 2.0 GHz or higher, at least 2GB of RAM, and an AU (32/64-bit), VST (32/64-bit), VST3 (32/64-bit) or RTAS (32-bit, via FXPansion wrapper) compatible host application.
All Duende Native Plug-ins are available for a free, fully functional initial 30 day demo as well as for ongoing periodic free demos. Duende Native plug-ins are available to purchase individually from the SSL web store. Two boxed product bundles are available exclusively from SSL Resellers worldwide: Duende Native Essentials (includes EQ & Dynamics Channel and Stereo Bus Compressor) and the Duende Native Studio Pack (includes EQ & Dynamics Channel, Stereo Bus Compressor, Drumstrip, Vocalstrip, X-EQ and X-Comp).
