EastWest has teamed up with studio console maker Solid State Logic to present the SSL/EW FX Suite, a collection of professional audio processing tools for use inside the EastWest PLAY 4 software. The SSL audio processing tools provide the precision, feature set and tonal characteristics of SSL console products.
The foundations of the SSL collection are adaptations of two SSL console classics. The EQ & Dynamics Channel plug-in provides an EQ & Dynamics processing solution with all the power, precision, flexibility and signature tone of an SSL console channel strip. The Stereo Compressor gives users the classic SSL stereo compressor that brings power and punch to the music without compromising clarity. The Transient Shaper is a 'task specific' processing tool to get drum and percussion sounds quickly and easily.
With the SSL/EW FX Suite, users can save their custom instruments in the Browser menu for recall at any time, with the added convenience of being able to change any parameter in real time. These SSL audio processing tools are identical to those found in the SSL Duende Native Plug-in suite, for a fraction of the price, limited only to their use within the PLAY 4 software.
The SSL/EW FX Suite is included free for use with each new release after the introduction of PLAY 4. Previously released PLAY collections require an upgrade that can be downloaded here for $99 / €79 (only one upgrade is required for all PLAY releases).
