Solid State Logic has completed the Fusion Plug-in family with an emulation of the 600-ohm, 1:1-wound under-damped transformer found in the critically acclaimed Fusion analog coloration hardware.

The SSL Fusion Transformer plugin offers a unique combination of high-frequency phase-shift, harmonic distortion and natural low-frequency roll-off. The controls and parameters of the new plugin go well beyond the original hardware version.

Jonathan Sandman, Product Manager – SSL Studio Plug-in comments:

“Our new Fusion Transformer plug-in is a faithful emulation of Fusion’s switchable Transformer circuit and is the perfect way to round off our family of Fusion plug-ins. In addition to being able to deliver low-end thickening and high-end sheen to any signal, it is able to deliver exactly the right amount of transformer mojo to vocals, electric guitars, or indeed the entire mix.”
