Solid State Logic (SSL)

At Musikmesse (Booth #B.75, Hall 5.1), Solid State Logic has announced the release of Duende V3 and its new X-Verb plug-in.

X-VerbWith the release of Duende Studio Packs at NAMM '09 SSL brought the SSL Duende Plug-in collection to a new level of affordability. Duende V3 doubles the power that the Duende platform can be upgraded to with the introduction of an entirely new audio engine. Duende's new Hybrid Core Processing engine combines all of the advantages of dedicated DSP with use of your computers CPU processing power. V3 enables users to upgrade Duende Mini to 64 channels and Duende PCIe to 128 channels. Hybrid Core Processing is one of the very first professional audio engines to make full use of the latest generation of Intel processors to deliver incredible stability and performance.

Duende V3 requires Intel Core 2 (or equivalent power processor for PC owners) or Intel Mac based (for Mac owners) computers to run. Customers with computers utilising older, or lower powered processors will not be able to run Duende V3 software or run the new generation of SSL plug-ins.

Duende V3 is a free software download (including X-Verb demo) but channel upgrades will be sold exclusively via the Solid State Logic web store:

  • V3 64 channel upgrade for Duende Mini; £69 + VAT
  • V3 128 channel upgrade for Duende PCIe; £129 + VAT

The power of Duende V3 enabled SSL to use MusikMesse 09 to present X-Verb, the first of a new breed of extremely sophisticated 'four slot' SSL Plug-ins.

X-Verb
High end hardware reverb performance in SSL plug-in form

X-Verb delivers the density, warmth, depth and detail usually only associated with high class hardware reverb units. The power behind the quality of X-Verb is simple; it is not a Convolution Reverb based on impulse responses, it is a true Reverberation Generator based on unique SSL algorithms. The algorithm based approach generates "stunning" sonic results, with lowest possible latencies and allows dynamic access to all of the fine detail parameters of the Early Reflection and Reverb structure. The sonic might of X-Verb is wrapped in a GUI that provides comprehensive editability. The new 'Morph' feature allows MIDI Controllable crossfading from one Reverb Preset to another.

Key Features:

  • Unique SSL Reverb Algorithm Engine.
  • 4 Core Algorithms create a complete collection of processors.
  • Quick Controls Panel to easily alter the 200 Presets.
  • Graphical User Interface to access detailed parameter set.
  • Unique automatable Morphing feature to dynamically morph from one preset to another.
  • Uses 4 Duende slots per stereo instance.

X-Verb will be available from May 2009 exclusively from the Solid State Logic web store priced £220 + Tax.
