SSL Duende PCIe
What technical specifications motivated your choice?
The quality plug-ins, so given that the Waves are pretty CHRE, I took the Duende PCIe, and of course the choice of PCIe DSP resources.

What is your config?
Mac Pro dual core 2.66GHz 8 GB RAM + + Snow Leopard hard drive 10000trs for MacOSX and MOTU 24io on LOGIC PRO 9.3 It mixes ALL, the wafer and the trs trs trs comp are musical, a sound on ALL ALL ALL, never vulgar, trs prcis. There is a small diffrence with the waves, but that's normal because they n'mulent not the same thing!


The drivers are stable?
The original Driver had a latency version2 HUGE, but version 3 argl the problem!!

What software do you use most often?
Bah all, the Bus Compressor is enormous, put on a master, you will understand!! it sticks a mix, I also love a battery notement the snare, it has a pump incredible when asked. The wafer is also standard, everything is good, nothing to get rid of it peutaller in all directions, to comp to eq filter etc etc ...

Are they often put day?
Yes I think.

What you get lag?
I do not mean to mix, and I do not hear it in gear, except for percussion instruments (drums / percussions, slap ...)


Installation is no problem it?

Gnrale configuration is easy?
Super simple !!!!!

Have you experienced any incompatibility?
No No

The manual is clear and sufficient?
What is it??


How long have you use it?
A week, but I used the waves in the "current speed" of quality that are scabies!! I do not feel the diffrence! apart from the fact allger the resources of my mac ;-)

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Sound sound sound!! I'm still looking at least, the musicality of plugins, a ring of hell

How do you report qualitprix?

Exprience with, you will do again this choice?
Eyes closed, I intend to upgrade to 128 channels and I catch the Comp X, and DrumStrip!!

be able to plug-ins pro quality without drawing power processor.

used on all types of instruments on a PC DAW.

mixing and premastering.
config: 6GB RAM Asus P6T Core i7 920. Radeon 4870 graphics card, sound cards Sonic Core Luna Pulsar II + II. 1.3 TB HDD (3 discs). Cubase 5.5.1 stable drivers


no worries.

whatever the nb of tracks I was not bothered with the default 32 slots of the card but I still have not used 32 in a song. Otherwise in cubase I get to read about thirty tracks without pb.

Drivers monitored and updated (latest version 3.5.2 just released with the key to install on Windows 7 64-bit versions and possible VST3 plug-ins).

6ms not flinch at that nickel is I think I can go below if I have not too many tracks in my arrangement.


Installation nickel.


1 month and a half.

compared with native plug-ins freeware there is no photo, is the day and night. Plug-ins Sonic Core are very good too (also in DSP so) and there is no disappointment over the quality is tip top.

The bus comp is super effective without damaging the sound (while other plugs can give a particular sound compression [which can be interesting], but here you can push the level and it is transparent! Huge)
The channel is really bluffing you feel really driving a Rolls audio, the EQ is precise / surgical, you can sculpt the sound, the comp and gate / expander are great.

Impressive value for money, I do it again this choice with your eyes closed. Only drawback, the apprehension of plugs is not obvious at first because not very visually (especially the EQ) but once your ears have understood the settings, you can not use the EQ or cubase freeware junk ...

I can not imagine the quality of X-EQ X-Comp and I intend to acquire as extending to 128 slots. on the other hand I hope that SSL will make a gesture in order to acquire the native version of plugs for the owners of the duende to enjoy the best of both worlds and not be limited only by our imagination in the mix! Top quality
