Default Re: Duende Native VS Waves SSL Bundle

I have both and I use both but for me Waves SSL is better.....BUT, everyone have different tastes and preferences. Waves SSL resemble me the SSL analog console that I used to work years ago and the sound is very similar to the real console.
You are going to read different opinions here, its up to you to make that decision.

Download the free trial of both and try them. You probably do what I did, I like both, so I got both.

Good Luck

They are modelled/derived from different pieces of SSL hardware so it depends on what you're after - they are meant to sound different.

FWIW I prefer the Duende stuff, it's smoother to me. But there's no accounting for taste.

FWIAW I hate the Duende licensing system... it's not straightforward at all and I spent longer transferring a license to my new machine this week than I've ever spent on copy protection on a single plug-in bundle ever... but that's a minor thing once you get it going.

Waves sounds more authentic but Duende sounds more hi-fi which can be preferable as can Waves depending...
