ACQUA - Water2 (Trial)

WATER2 is a VST/AAX/AU bundle based on 60s vintage series of Austrian hardware, hand-built around  Germanium transistor topology and plenty of audio transformers.

Water is an incarnation of a classy set of vintage hardware units in a new guise, yet again demonstrating the inherent potential of Acustica's technology.

Here we were once again inspired by Dante's Divine Comedy.
As a second, epic volume as reinterpreted by Acustica, here is our 'Water Purgatory!'
Prepare yourself for a journey of sound purification and ascension to the place of passage and transit for your soul, up to the wonders of Paradise.



Details

WATER2 plugin suite includes 3 different plug-ins:

  • WATER2 Channel-strip;
  • WATER2 EQ (Passive Germanium Equalizer standalone module)
  • WATER2 COMP  (Limiter/Compressor standalone module)


For each plugin included in Water2 suite, there is also 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.

CORE 13

WATER2 is based on our Core 13 engine:

  • NEW Our new Core 13 engine improves on the previous version by introducing our new VLA™ technology (Vector Loading Acceleration), which makes the response of the plugin much faster.
  • Upgraded SASM (Symmetric & Asymmetric Saturation Modeling) high-performance saturation algorithm;
  • Introduction of a new post-production sample de-noising tech for cleaner deconvolved impulses called STT (Super transient technology);
  • Full compatibility with Client/Server architecture integrated by default in Acqua plugins;
  • Engine optimization introducing a new highly efficient algorithm. This innovative technique is applied to all the deconvolved impulses for further de-noise processing and subsequent elimination of any incorrect low-level behavior (including the so-called "echo bug").

 

WATER2 (Trial) is a time-limited, fully functional version of this product; it will expire 30 days after installation.
