Product Highlights
  • Genuine SSL Signal Processing
  • Ultra Portable 1 1/3 Rack Size
  • All Metal Construction
  • Includes 6 SSL Plug Ins

The Solid State Logic Duende Mini Studio Pack is a FireWire based external DSP processor which includes 6 genuine SSL plug ins that was designed to bring the classic sound of SSL consoles to studios of every size. Following in the footsteps of the original 1-rack space Duende, the Mini has achieved ultra-portability with its "one third rack-width" form factor. It connects to any FireWire equipped PC or Mac computer and provides 32 mono channels of plug-in processing power to your host digital audio workstation software.

Included is the SSL developed 'EQ and Dynamics Channel' software plug-in. Based on the EQ and compressor stages of the venerable XL 9000 K Series mixing console, 'EQ and Dynamics Channel' features separate high and low pass filters, a four band parametric equalizer, an independent compressor/limiter, and a gate/expander. Since SSL was the first company to include dynamics and EQ on every channel in a mixing console in 1977, the idea with the Mini and the 'EQ and Dynamics Channel' plug-in is to make this amount of processing available to any portable DAW. The Duende Mini Studio Pack also includes the Stereo Buss Compressor, the Drumstrip & Vocalstrip, the X-EQ, and the X-Comp plug-ins. The Stereo Buss Compressor plug-in is based on the compressor from the SSL G Series analog recording console, which can be heard on countless hit records.

If you eventually realize that you need even more processing power, you're in luck because this system is expandable. Two Duende Mini's can be used simultaneously to achieve an astounding 64 channels of ultra-portable DSP. If you've ever dreamed of having the sound of an SSL mixing console in your backpack, dream no more.
