Niall Feldman, Director of New Products at SSL, had this to say, "Although The Duende Native plug-in collection has always been available with an included RTAS wrapper, which has worked very well for most users, some users reported limitations when using the wrapped plug-ins within Pro Tools DAW architecture in conjunction with DAW Controller hardware. These new native RTAS versions of the Duende collection completely address those concerns and make the superb sound of SSL plug-ins even more appealing to Pro Tools users worldwide. The RTAS versions are the first fruit of SSL becoming an Avid Development Partner. This new relationship demonstrates a spirit of wider industry cooperation and is one we hope will continue to deliver better and more open working environments for audio professionals for many years to come."
Pricing and Availability:
The new RTAS versions of Duende Native Plug-ins will be available from mid Nov 2011 through the SSL web site. Existing plug-in owners will be able to download new software installers free of charge from the SSL web site and the new installer will be supplied as standard to all new customers.
