“Diamond - Color Eq” is the result of a collaboration between Acustica and Studio DMI and the product DIAMOND - Color Eq in its own context… Las Vegas!
A new Italian project merging the passion and love for the art of Acustica and Luca Pretolesi’s homeland with the soul of Las Vegas.
Art and technique merge together culminating in a plug-in providing the most accurate digital representation of Studio DMI signature sound.

DIAMOND - Color Eq is the first plug-in of a new series called Diamond, designed to embellish and enhance your sound!
The Pre section adds extra harmonics to this Eq and can be switched off to use a chain of Eqs without summing the harmonics of each of them.
The thinking behind this process is to provide the full quality of the analog behavior, which means placing all the emphasis on quality over CPU resources.

We are very satisfied and quite delighted with the results!

Features actually supported in Core9:

  • Variable speeds on vector nodes improving the sound quality of the compressors and allowing to reach very fast speeds and precision.
  • Envelope followers based on control sources.
  • Queue messages used for several widgets like knobs improving the behaviour, control, and stability of plug-ins.
  • Hiddend components fault-tolerant inside nebula/acqua engine to minimized crash/bugs.
  • New wrapper to get better balanced AAX format
  • Several minor fixes and improvements (about trimming, sample rate conversion, distribution of sample rate packs, fixes on loaded program rate).
  • This engine is linked to Nat4 to allows the full automatic compressor sampling.
  • Switchmode optimization reducing CPU loading
  • Lazy loading pattern introduced to improve the loading of the objects

Key Features

DIAMOND - Color Eq includes:
  • DIAMOND ZL EQ (zero latency)



STUDIO DMI LOGO: Press the logo to bypass the plug-in (lamp OFF) ) or not-bypasses (lamp ON).

sets the input level from -24dB to +24dB, and is used to control the signal level inside the plug-in.

sets the output level from -24dB to +24dB.

The PRE-IN button enables (lamp ON) or bypasses (lamp OFF) the preamp stage of Diamond. The Harmonic distortion levels depends of High frequency, the boost of High frequencies increases the distortion.

The Frequencies ranges  for each band are arranged in the following way

Low Frequency (Hz):
20, 40, 60;
Low Mid Frequency (Hz):
80, 120;
High Mid Frequency (Hz):
fixed range from 440 to 12.8k;
High Frequency (Hz):
15k, 20k, 50k;

Low Cut/Boost
Low Mid Cut/Boost
High Mid Cut/Boost
High Cut/Boost

The bandwidth around each center frequency is fixed at two cotaves allowing for the filters to overlap in a very natural way.

this HIGH-PASS filter passes frequencies above its cutoff frequency and attenuates frequencies below its cutoff frequency. It starts at 40Hz and is down 6dB at 20Hz.
