Solid State Logic Duende Native Plug-in Suite 3.6.6 VST VST3 RTAS x86
Solid State Logic (SSL) is a renowned manufacturer of professional audio equipment, especially known for its analog and digital mixing consoles. SSL also offers a range of software plug-ins that emulate the sound and features of its hardware products, such as the SSL Channelstrip, the SSL Bus Compressor, and the SSL X-EQ. These plug-ins are collectively called the Duende Native Plug-in Suite, and they are compatible with various digital audio workstations (DAWs) that support VST, VST3, or RTAS formats on Windows systems with x86 architecture.
The Duende Native Plug-in Suite 3.6.6 is the latest version of the software bundle, released in September 2021. It includes 10 plug-ins that cover various aspects of audio production, such as dynamics, equalization, reverb, saturation, and phase correction. The plug-ins are designed to provide the exceptional quality and sophisticated features that the SSL Duende hardware is famous for, in a form that is extremely easy to use, and is portable for use anywhere. The plug-ins are also optimized for low CPU usage and high performance.
The 10 plug-ins included in the Duende Native Plug-in Suite 3.6.6 are:
SSL Channelstrip: A versatile plug-in that combines a four-band parametric EQ, a compressor/limiter, an expander/gate, and a filter section in one interface. It emulates the sound and behavior of the SSL 4000 E and G Series consoles, and offers a range of presets designed by SSL studio engineers and producers.
SSL Bus Compressor: A legendary plug-in that replicates the master bus compressor found on the SSL 4000 G Series console. It is widely used for adding punch, glue, and cohesion to mixes and subgroups, and has a distinctive sound that is often described as "big" and "warm".
SSL Drumstrip: A specialized plug-in that enhances drum sounds with five processing modules: a transient shaper, a gate/expander, a high frequency enhancer, a low frequency enhancer, and a listen mic compressor. It also features a wet/dry mix control and a collection of drum presets.
SSL Vocalstrip: A dedicated plug-in that improves vocal tracks with four processing modules: a de-esser, a dynamics section, an EQ section, and a doubler/enhancer. It also features a wet/dry mix control and a selection of vocal presets.
SSL X-EQ: A powerful plug-in that offers 10 bands of parametric EQ with various filter types, such as shelving, bell, notch, low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, and tilt. It also features a graphical display of the frequency spectrum and the EQ curve, as well as a phase invert switch.
SSL X-Comp: A versatile plug-in that offers two modes of compression: wideband and multiband. It also features a graphical display of the input/output levels and the gain reduction curve, as well as a side-chain input and a wet/dry mix control.
SSL X-Phase: A precise plug-in that allows adjusting the phase relationship between two audio signals with up to 180 degrees of phase shift. It also features a graphical display of the phase difference and the correlation meter, as well as a polarity invert switch.
SSL X-ValveComp: A hybrid plug-in that combines the best of both worlds: the warmth and character of valve compression with the precision and control of digital compression. It also features a graphical display of the input/output levels and the gain reduction curve, as well as a side-chain input and a wet/dry mix control.
SSL X-Saturator: A creative plug-in that adds harmonic distortion and saturation to audio signals with two modes: symmetrical and asymmetrical. It also features a graphical display of the input/output levels and the harmonic spectrum, as well as a wet/dry mix control.
SSL X-Verb: A discontinued plug-in that was replaced by SSL Native V6 in 2018. It was a high-quality reverb plug-in that offered a range of algorithms, such as hall, plate, room, chamber, and inverse. It also featured a graphical display of the reverb tail and the frequency response, as well as a wet/dry mix control.
The Duende Native Plug-in Suite 3.6.6 requires an iLok 2 or 3 Smart Key for authorization, and it does not allow machine location activation. The plug-ins can be purchased individually or as a bundle from the SSL Webstore, or they can be subscribed to via the Gobbler Platform for a monthly or yearly fee. The plug-ins are also compatible with the SSL Native V6 plug-ins, which are free updates for existing Duende Native V5 owners. The SSL Native V6 plug-ins have new higher resolution user interfaces, improved preset management, and underlying framework changes that ensure support for many years to come.
The Duende Native Plug-in Suite 3.6.6 is a comprehensive and professional software bundle that offers the sound and features of the SSL hardware products in a convenient and affordable format. The plug-ins are suitable for various genres and applications, and they can enhance any audio production with the SSL signature sound and quality.
