Solid State Logic releases Duende v2.0 (and Drumstrip for Duende)

Solid State Logic (SSL)

Solid State Logic has released version 2.0 of the Duende software and released Drumstrip, a drum processing plug-in for Duende.

Duende Software 2.0

New Features:

  • Time limited trial version of Drumstrip included in installer; the first optional plug-in for the Duende platform.
  • Mouse Wheel control of all Duende plug-in parameters.
  • Duende DSP resources are released following a freeze command in Cubase and Nuendo.
  • Mac: Multiple Duende GUIs now use shared host memory. This will improve host performance in some cases.
  • Mac: RTAS installer is now separate from VST/AU/Driver in Mac OS. This simplifies the installation procedure.

Bug Fixes:

  • Bus Compressor now compatible with Cubase 4.
  • In some circumstances Duende VST plug-ins would not be recognized in a new install of Windows XP. This was due to software dependencies and is now fixed.
  • Win: The gate/expander meters are now more accurately reporting their close status.
  • Improved DSP resource allocation.
  • Previously mono and stereo Audio Unit presets were not interchangeable. This is now fixed.

Key features of Drumstrip include:

  • Carefully selected collection of five audio processing tools.
  • Transient shaper with Transient Invert to bring the attack phase of your drums to life.
  • Transient Shaper Audition enables you to isolate and monitor the effect of the Transient Shaper.
  • “Over-Easy” soft ratio compression characteristic for smooth transitions.
  • Dedicated drum Gate with range and independent open and close threshold controls.
  • High Frequency Enhancer to invigorate top end.
  • Low Frequency Enhancer to improve bass frequencies.
  • The classic SSL Listen Mic Compressor with additional bypass function to alter the legendary band-limited compression to full range compression.
  • Adjustable processor order—because a different processing order is required for different types of drums.
  • Input & Output Level metering with additional RMS meters, dynamic range indicators and threshold indicators.
