SSL DuendePublished on 05/05/09 at 10:37
The SSL Duende is a DSP board based set of plug-ins that are modeled after some of the analog SSL consoles. This version contains both a channel strip that has compression, a gate, EQs, and filters while the other plug-in is a compressor. The machine I use this plug-in set with is an Apple Mac G5 and I run the plug-in with a Pro Tools HD system.

UTILIZATION

Installing the SSL Duende takes a little bit longer than most plug-ins because it has the DSP board that also needs to be installed in addition to the software. However, if you follow the instructions properly it isn't all that hard and once the DSP board is installed you never have to touch it again. I had no compatibility issues......

UTILIZATION

Installing the SSL Duende takes a little bit longer than most plug-ins because it has the DSP board that also needs to be installed in addition to the software. However, if you follow the instructions properly it isn't all that hard and once the DSP board is installed you never have to touch it again. I had no compatibility issues at all with my configuration and it has always run flawlessly for me. The interface of the plug-in is also pretty easy to understand even though there are a lot of different parameters and sections to them. The manual for SSL Duende is pretty necessary to have around so you can install the DSP board properly, so unless you have previous experience with it I would recommend having it around.

GETTING STARTED

I usually have no problems at all running a bunch of different SSL Duende plug-ins at once, as I've never had an instance where I was running out of processing power because of them. This all has to do with the DSP board that does all the work so your computer does not have to. It also makes the sound quality of the plug-ins extremely high as these truly sound great.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using SSL Duende for about a year and I've found it to be a great set of plug-ins. All of the EQs and compressors sound awesome and are great for an endless variety of applications. While the price of SSL Duende isn't cheap at all, it is designed for professionals and those who want that great SSL sound without having to spend an incredible amount of money. Overall, great for both home and professional studio owners who want an awesome set of plug-ins that won't tax your computer.

Quality / great price if you compare the prices of native plug-ins (waves, etc.)
It was mainly (EQ and Dynamics) to mix the pros!

I wanted something that works well and is going at least a little something
when modifying a parameter.
To mix of logic with Rosetta 800 NS10M and BM15.
on a mac G5 2.3 bipro.

UTILIZATION

So I must say this: Integration not toptoptop ...
I've had three days and it's not completely plug and play at first:
incompatible with Leopard I had to downgrade my system and then download the update
the duende and change the firmware.
pfff, once this is done, if you have not left connected to the famous firewire hard drive is gone ...

OVERALL OPINION

Few days.
Its sounds, no doubt have the top and one realizes that

I was looking for something trs good quality in hardware in order to free the CPU. The purpose of replacing a silent table mix and find good trs pluggins EQ.

UTILIZATION

No particular problem with the installation. With only firefire port on my motherboard, I connected the duende firewire port of my prsonus FIREPOD.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers seem stable but I had a big problem that finally made me make the duende. I do not know if it s the fact that I am connected directly to the FIREPOD but when mastering, I have big cracks.

The report qualitprix is ​​excellent if you do not meet the problem of cracking. These are probably the best pluggins with those of DSUs.
