“D” is for Duende

OXFORD, ENGLAND - “Tommy D” Danvers is one of the names you’re bound to have written in the credits of an album somewhere in your collection. As a Songwriter/Producer he’s worked with a varied roster of artists across genres including KT Tunstall, Corinne Bailey-Rae, Kylie Minogue, Janet Jackson, Jamie Scott, Kanye West, and Jay-Z. With such high-profile names to work with (and such little time) Tommy needed something that delivered him outstanding quality to mix with in a portable system. It was the “SSL Sound” that Tommy was looking for, and Duende Mini gave him the ideal mix of portability, recall, and audio glue.

After adding a Duende Mini to his laptop recording setup, Tommy told us “I love the portability. If only life was this portable. I always found ways of making things sound good but with Duende its quicker and more convenient.” Tommy was initially interested in the Master Bus Compressor plug-in the Duende and asked to try one out, but soon found that he was hooked on one of the additional plug-ins available. “I love the Drumstrip! Since I've had it there hasn't been a track which hasn't had it on something. The simple bottom/top enhancer is fantastic” he added. “There’s nothing like the SSL sound to tie everything together. As a songwriter I'm bouncing around ideas all the time so the ease of the SSL vibe in a plug in is the perfect Total Recall!”

Tommy is currently busy in the studio working on projects, but has told us he’s recommending Duende to “all and sundry”!
