Acustica Audio’s new Acqua series of plug-ins are painstakingly ‘sampled’ from high-end hardware. Does the end justify the means? When software developers aim to capture the sound of studio hardware in plug-in format, they’ll usually employ some sort of algorithmic modelling technique to do so. In theory, this has quite a few advantages. Modelling plug-ins typically require relatively little memory or drive space; it’s often possible to optimise the code so that they run very efficiently; and it’s possible to add additional features that aren’t available on the original. But do they fully capture what’s special about the sound of the hardware? Quite a few engineers still feel that the answer to this question is ‘No’, which is why Acustica Audio’s Nebula has such a devoted following. Nebula uses an alternative technique called dynamic convolution.
