ACQUA - Lemon

LEMON includes 40 different delay and tape emulations, each one with a great sonic character and excellent dimensionality. Its 40 programs are able to faithfully reproduce the behavior and sound of many different hardware delay machines, both vintage and modern. A clever feedback scheme (offering different types of filters for each emulation) and an adjustable drive control gives you the possibility to use Lemon as an effective tape/overdrive simulator as well.

If you are looking for a flashy delay effect with strong modulation, extreme pitch-shifting, and heavy feedback, then Lemon is not for you; but for all the other vast majority of cases, when the music calls for a delay texture that blends seamlessly with the source, then Lemon might become your first and last choice.



What's "wrong" with the average delay plugins?
Simple. We found that they do not repeat well. Many of them are grainy and cut incoming audio sources to pieces. Ultimately they're good only for a kind of over-the-top 'special effects' that, however, makes it impossible to use them in normal contexts, where a high quality 'old school' hardware delay would effortlessly do the trick.
As soon as we realized that such a processor was missing in the software world, we felt the urgent need to find a solution. Lemon is the answer.

LEMON plugin suite includes:

  •     LEMON ( Dreamer Multitap delay - 6-rack unit)
  •     LEMON STEREO (Dreamer Stereo Delay - Stereo - 3-rack unit)
  •     LEMON STEREO LITE (Dreamer Stereo Delay lite version - Stereo - 2-rack unit )
