Niall Feldman, Director Of New Products at SSL, told Sonic State, "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 completely address those concerns and make the superb sound of SSL plug-ins even more appealing to Pro Tools users worldwide."
The release of the new RTAS versions of the plug-ins coincides with the availability of a new set of Duende Native Tour/Tutorial videos on the SSL web site and youtube.
Here's what SSL has to say about the Duende Native collection:
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... 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 64BIT capable in suitable Mac and Windows Operating Systems.
