DUENDE STARS ON SOS COVER AS FIRST REVIEW IS PUBLISHED...
SSL Duende, with 32 channels of SSL mix power for your DAW, creates a big stir as it receives a superb review and features on the front cover of the latest issue of Sound On Sound.
Paul White writes in his conclusion:
"The audio quality of these plug-ins is first rate, and because they are based on the algorithms already used in SSL's own digital consoles, they're more than just emulations that don't quite hit the mark."
"You can spend all day twiddling the knobs on an indifferent EQ without getting the results you're after, but here it all seems effortless."
"If you like the SSL sound but are never likely to be in a position to own one of their consoles, you can now have all the sonic benefits from within your own Mac-based DAW at a very affordable price. I've only been playing with it for a few days and I'm already hooked."
To read the full review please pick up the August 2006 issue of Sound On Sound.
Duende is a powerful DSP platform designed to serve up genuine, SSL console-grade audio processing within audio workstations. Based on the superior DSP algorithms from SSL C-Series digital consoles, Duende is not a modelled recreation of the SSL sound - it's the genuine article.
Duende offers complete integration into the most popular workstation environments with one simple FireWire cable connection. The processing blocks appear as VST/AU plug-ins (RTAS support via FXPansion wrapper) - including an authentic SSL channel strip with filters, E and G series EQ and dynamics processing, as well as the legendary SSL Stereo Bus Compressor.
