X-Phase, X-Saturator and X-ValveComp bring the total number of Solid State Logic Duende Native plug-ins to 10. SSL has also switched over to iLok2 dongle copy protection and will withdraw all support for the Codemeter dongles by the end of 2014.

X-Phase ($329 MSRP) is an all-pass filter and time alignment tool for manually aligning time and phase differences between microphones that are recording the same source on multiple tracks. I've been using it to correct the slight phase shift between drum tom-tom tracks and also for dialing in 'phasey sounding' stereo keyboard recordings.

X-Saturator ($119 MSRP) allows you to add your own mix of 2nd and/or 3rd harmonic distortion to recorded tracks for adding analog character. There is a Drive control for setting the amount and the Depth and Shape controls regulate the harmonics injected back into the signal path.

X-ValveComp ($119 MSRP) uses tube compressor emulation for adding harmonics/vibe and also switches between Peak and RMS modes. I like the Auto Make-Up gain, parallel compression mode and its full compliment of adjustable compression controls. The on-screen transfer function curve follows your settings and offers quick visual feedback of its operation.

Lastly, all Duende Native plug-ins will be ported to 64-bit by September 2014. Look for AAX-64, VST and AU versions soon! Much more at: www.solidstatelogic.com/duende/
