SSL have today announced some great news for its Duende plug-in users. Not only have they announced three new plugins, X-ValveComp & X-Saturator, which are designed to bring some analogue saturation and distortion emulation to your digital DAW and X-Phase which delivers precision frequency specific phase correction. But for Pro Tools users the great news is their intention to port the entire Duende Native Plugin range to the AAX format.
What’s even better is that current owners of Duende plugins will get the updates for Free and owners of the current codemeter USB stick authorisation will get one of the newly developed plugins free and a 50% discount on an iLok 2.
The three new plug-ins complement the existing range with two plug-ins (X-Saturator & X-ValveComp) and the third (X-Phase) delivering precision frequency specific phase correction.
Duende Native Suite Come To Pro Tools With AAX Versions
The new plug-ins are due for public release by May 1st 2014 and a summer release for AAX versions of the entire suite. Jim Motely, Head Of Business for Workstation Partner Products at SSL told us…
We’re excited to bring these new tools to the Duende family. Like the others in the Duende range the new plug-ins are a mix of easy-to-use sound sweeteners and technical problem-solvers. By responding to our customer’s requests to move to what many see as the industry-standard copy protection system we hope to ensure that using Duende plug-ins is as simple an experience as possible.
