Plug-In Mixer Enhancements
The main improvements have been in the SSL Plug-in Mixer Layer, enhancing DAW Integration for VST3 DAWs such as Cubase, Nuendo, Live, Studio One, Reaper and Luna.
The Plug-In Mixer itself has always been a control layer within 360º, that you can use physically with UF8, UF1 or UC1 controllers. Whenever you load an instance of Native Channelstrip or Native Bus Compressor within your DAW, it automatically populates the Plug-In Mixer in 360º, creating a virtual SSL console that you control from your SSL hardware.
The Channelstrip Plug-Ins feature input trim, pan & output controls which are separate to the equivalent parameters in your DAW. This meant switching layers on your controller, or windows on your computer to select the focus of your controls.
Now with V1.6, you have the best of both worlds. DAW & Plugin controls are accessible within 360 / the Plug-In layer itself. This also extends to channel sends from your DAW being displayed within the virtual console on 360. This means you can spend more time within the plug-in layer whilst working on a mix. Visual feedback also helps you to identify which mode you are in.
