SSL’s plug-in programme launches with two Fusion-inspired effects

Posted on: Tuesday 28th of September 2021

SSL Fusion PluginsSolid State Logic has launched a new DAW plug-in development programme, that will bring with it scheduled monthly releases of “premium software production tools.”

The first example of this is a duo of Fusion processor modules, though between now and April 2022 the company has pledged to launch “a series of studio quality tape echo, delay and de-esser processing plug-ins,” which will be available individually or as part of the SSL Complete Bundle subscription.

Specifically, the launch is heralded by a dual release of the SSL Fusion Vintage Drive and the SSL Fusion Stereo Image, with both plug-ins are modelled on its namesake analogue hardware processor. Vintage Drive brings its hardware inspiration’s non-linear saturation circuit characteristics directly to the DAW, with Density and Drive controls to shape harmonics, soft-clipping and natural compression effects “reminiscent of pushing an analog console into its tonal ‘sweet spot'”. Fusion Stereo Image provides  Width and Space controls allow users to access a digital version of the Fusion’s mid-side circuit for spatial manipulation of the stereo field.

These two will be joined in the coming months by additional Fusion-derived processors such as the Violet EQ, HF Compressor and Transformer. SSL plan to continue monthly software releases, including premium legacy modelled hardware additions in order to expand and enhance the value of the SSL subscription. Individual Fusion plug-in perpetual licenses will be priced at $199/€159/£139 ex local taxes, and will be available with an early adopters 25% discount for the first 30 days from their launch. Alternatively, they will be available as part of the SSL Complete Bundle Subscription, which is currently priced at $14.99p/m.
