SSL Fusion Vintage Drive plug-in
The SSL Fusion Vintage Drive plug-in is modelled on the Vintage Drive section of the SSL Fusion, bringing its unique, non-linear saturation circuit characteristics directly to the DAW. The Density and Drive controls on the plug-in interact to produce harmonics, soft-clipping and natural compression, reminiscent of pushing an analog console into its tonal ‘sweet spot.’
SSL Fusion Stereo Image plug-in
The SSL Fusion Stereo Image plug-in, also modelled on the SSL Fusion hardware unit with reference to the original analogue circuit designs. Width and Space controls allow users to access a digital version of the Fusion’s mid-side circuit directly in the DAW for detailed spatial manipulation of the stereo field.
These and all forthcoming plug-ins are compatible with all major DAWs and computer operating systems, and support VST2, VST3, AAX and AU plug-in formats.
