Solid State Logic has announced two new plug-ins, the SSL Fusion Vintage Drive and SSL Fusion Stereo Image, available independently or as part of SSL’s complete subscription pack. Both processors are modelled on the company’s Fusion analogue hardware processor, and will be joined in the coming months by the Violet EQ, HF Compressor and Transformer.

SSL Fusion Vintage Drive and Fusion Stereo Image‘This announcement demonstrates our commitment to provide SSL legacy and future production tools to a wider audience of music production and audio creatives with plug-in versions,’ says SSL Managing Director, Nigel Beaumont. ‘By providing different ownership options, we are also simplifying how users can evaluate and then invest in this hugely-expanding suite of authentic SSL creative software tools.’

The Fusion Vintage Drive plug-in is modelled on the Vintage Drive section of the SSL Fusion, bringing its nonlinear 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 analogue console into its tonal ‘sweet spot.’

The Fusion Stereo Image plug-in, also modelled on the SSL Fusion hardware unit with reference to the original analogue circuit designs. Width and Spacec ontrols 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.

In addition to the new Fusion series, SSL’s software line-up includes professional studio quality tape echo, delay and de-esser processing plug-ins, all to be available before the end of March 2022. Moving forward, SSL will introduce monthly additional software releases, including premium legacy modelled hardware additions, significantly enhancing the value of the SSL subscription package.

These and forthcoming plug-ins are compatible with all major DAWs and computer operating systems, and support VST2, VST3, AAX and AU plug-in formats.

All Fusion standalone perpetual licences will be priced at US$199/€159/£139 (ex local taxes). Alternatively, they will be available as part of the SSL Complete Subscription Bundle, currently at US$14.99 per month.
