Description

Precision parametric EQ, Dynamics and Filters

The SSL Duende Native EQ & Dynamics Channel delivers the classic tone and features of an SSL console channel strip. The EQ is a classic 4-band design with parametric LMF & HMF sections and shelving LF & HF sections (LF & HF switch to Bell). The whole EQ can be switched between E & G Series characteristics and can be applied to the dynamics side chain. The Dynamics section offers separate Compressor and Gate/Expanders. The Compressor can be switched between soft and hard knee. Both the Compressor and Gate/Expander sections feature fast/slow attack switches and independent side chains. The plug-in also features High and Low Pass Filters which can also be applied to the side chain.

Input Section

The Input Section of the EQ and Dynamics Channel Strip plug-in features an Input gain knob offering 20db of gain and attenuation and an accompanying Input level meter. There is a Phase reverse switch with status LED and a Bypass All switch offering latency free by-pass of all plug-in processing.

Filters

The Filter Section includes a 12 dB/Octave low pass filter and an 18 dB/Octave high pass filter. The filters can be placed after the equalizer, before the equalizer or in the sidechain of the Dynamics section.

Equalizer

The Equalizer section is a classic, flexible four band parametric EQ. This plug-in includes two distinct EQ flavours, one based on the SSL G series EQ and another based on the latest version of SSL’s legendary E series EQ. The plug-in includes high and low frequency shelving equalizers (which can be switched to peaking curves) and two overlapping equalizers with adjustable Q. Like the Filters section, the EQ section can be switched into the side chain of the Dynamics section. If both Filter and EQ sections are assigned to the dynamic side chain the Filter section precedes the EQ.

Dynamics

The EQ and Dynamics Channel Strip compressor/limiter section has a number of key features including a variable compression ratio from 1:1 to Infinity:1, a variable threshold from -30 dB to +10 dB, auto sensing attack time (or selectable 1ms attack time), and a variable release from 0.1 to 4 seconds. The Compressor/Limiter has two modes of signal detection, Peak and RMS. As their names suggest these modes of detection either act on peaks of the incoming signals or on their RMS levels. This gives two very different modes of compression and limiting with Peak Mode giving far more dramatic compression characteristics.

Expander

The Expander/Gate controls include a variable range from 0 to 40 dB, a variable threshold from -30 dB to +10 dB, an auto-sensing attack time (switchable to 150 micro seconds), a variable hold time from 0 to four seconds and a variable release time from 0.1 to 4 seconds.
