Update adds new EQ Plug-In, drops iLok dongle.

Oxford, UK (July 15, 2019)—Solid State Logic has unveiled the latest edition of its Native 6.3 plug-ins, a free update for existing Duende Native and SSL Native customers. The update introduces a new X-EQ 2 Native studio plug-in and drops the need to use a physical iLok dongle. All SSL Native 6.3 plug-ins can now be authorized to a computer.

X-EQ 2 replaces the existing X-EQ plug-in with a new GUI, re-written algorithms and new features. The plug-in uses SSL’s proprietary ‘anti-cramping’ DSP aiming to provide a transparent EQ; the plug also allows for the creation of up to 24 EQ bands with a choice of 17 classic and modern different filter shapes and EQ types.

Other new features include M/S processing modes, Band Solo and extra analysis tools, including Phase and Step response plots. X-EQ 2 also features “significant” DSP optimization, according to SSL, aiming to keep the computer’s CPU load low.

Existing iLok licenses that say ‘SSL Duende Native’ in their iLok License Manager account will continue to authorize with v6.3. X-EQ 2 can be used with an existing Duende Native X-EQ iLok license—a free upgrade for existing X-EQ customers. Existing and new SSL Native subscription holders will automatically see their X-EQ iLok license change to an X-EQ 2 license for the duration of their subscription as part of the SSL Native plug-in suite.
