ACQUA - Gold3

 

A Golden Legend.

Gold3 is a VST/AAX/AU plug-in suite representing the ultimate choice for anyone willing to incorporate the sound of legendary vintage British consoles into their workflow.

Gold3 now includes 8 different equalizers, 2 extremely rare compressors, 7 preamplifiers (for a total of 52 preamplifiers available inside the GOLD3PRE standalone version).
To provide you with such an extensive choice, we took a small trip to Tambourine Studios in Malmo, Sweden, to sample the extra models off a beautiful console - the same where all of the Cardigans' albums were produced - and formerly owned by Swedish super-producer Tore Johansson (a-ha, Tom Jones, Anouk, Melanie C).

Gold provides you with a complete virtual console emulation, and a useful routing control section, making this one of the most comprehensive Acqua plug-ins we created.

Analog.

“It’s no secret that the sound of our creations is different from all the others. Nobody can deny that they are unique in just about every respect. Our approach is based on sampling. By using FIR filters we have also a clean, almost alias free signal with a beautiful frequency/phase response up to Nyquist frequency. Long kernels allow to reduce ripple without introducing the typical errors of IIR implementations (no oversampling needed, no de-cramp filters, no lowpass filters, no phase issues or approximations”. Giancarlo Del Sordo - CEO

Dreamware.

Calling our plugins digital emulations would be an understatement. They belong to a completely new dimension, which we called Dreamware. It transcends both analog and digital giving you access to a cutting-edge technology that marks a revolution in the audio industry. 

Anthology.

Our Anthology captures the spirit and essence of our plug-ins. The goal was to provide all our users with the best collection of vintage hardware. We are improving on our own technology day after day, in order to create the most faithful emulations on the market, striving for perfection.
 

Details

GOLD 3 consists of:

  • GOLD3 (Channel-strip):
  • GOLD3 PRE (standalone preamps module)
  • GOLD3 EQ (Equalizer standalone module);
  • GOLD3 COMP (standalone compressor module);

To help you fully unleash the true potential of your mixes, you can use the individual modules of GOLD3 channel strip as separate plugin processors, giving you the possibility to use each component separately, for even more versatility and a significant CPU optimization.

For each plugin included in our GOLD3 suite there is a “Standard” version or an alternative “ZL*” version which operates at *zero latency at the cost of extra processing resources and is thus suitable for use when tracking.
