Digidesign have announced SoundFuel SOLID, a high-quality synthesizer plug-in for Pro Tools|HD® systems. Developed by SoundFuel in collaboration with Digidesign, the SOLID plug-in that recreates the warm, analog sounds of 70s and 80s synthesizers while also offering modern patches that are "perfect for dance or electronica". SOLID is currently supported by Digidesign-approved Mac-based Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools|HD Accel systems running Pro Tools® 6.7 or later software. Windows XP support is expected in late 2005.
SoundFuel SOLID features extremely low latency to deliver superb timing accuracy and true hardware synth performance. Because SOLID is powered by Pro Tools|HD or Pro Tools|HD Accel DSPs, it can be used liberally, even in large sessions, without taxing the computer's processor. With Pro Tools|HD Accel cards, SOLID operates as an eight-part multi-timbral synth that can produce up to 32 voices per DSP. Pro Tools|HD cards enable SOLID to produce four-part multi-timbral sound with up to 16 voices per DSP.
