A few years ago Acustica Audio coined the term "Analog Emulation", to indicate an innovative process whereby a piece of software tries to mimic the acoustic behavior of an hardware device. This process was able to get really close to the magnificence and the charm of the analog sound, but actually it couldn't reach exactly a precise 100% match. Over time the term has been abused many times by other developers, often with the presumption of reaching “the” perfect software simulation.
Then we wanted to change the game: today we use the term "Dreamware" to describe a software implementation based on different analog "emulations", melded simultaneously and liberally into a dream (Dream) software (ware) that conjures something that can't exist both in the analog domain and in the digital recreations of other manufacturers.


Acustica is pleased to present the new version of Ivory, not a simple upgrade but a complete review of the previous IVORY2 (IAE-2), an ambitious project whose goal is to provide a set of unmistakable and faithful plugins introducing new important features.

What’s the main novelty?
This third version is completely new, it's a bundle made up of 6 different plugins in CORE X,
this is the largest plug-in suite built by Acustica, providing the customer with a full pack featuring an absolutely distinctive sound.
Acustica has carefully redesigned the Ivory product, ensuring faithful emulations, ensuring precision and accuracy of the emulations while guaranteeing performance and quality, adding a Dynamic EQ and Multiband Compressor and their Stereo versions of them. An absolutely unique and complete ANALOG HARDWARE VIRTUALIZATION SUITE!

The IVORY3 suite is made up of 6 separate Acqua plug-ins with gorgeous graphical user interfaces that enable easy and quick parameter changes.

This bundle includes:

AMETH3 Front Teaser

Ivory3 is based on CORE X, the revolutionary upgraded multithreading technology by Acustica.
It is an optimization of Core9 in terms of high performance, it introduces new important features allows to optimize performance of Acqua plug-ins.
Features actually supported in Core X:
  • Internal saturation of the plug-in no longer exceeds +3 dB
  • New algorithm for hard-clipping.
  • "Multi-input system" implemented
  • "Blending algorithm" to reduce the number of istances, it allows significant saving in terms of CPU.

To Authorize Ivory3 we suggest you to use our Authorization Manager Application called Aquarius lite.

Key Features



Below is a brief overview. More details in our user's manual.
Ivory EQ / Ivory EQ Stereo 
Ivory3 is the upgraded version of IVORY intended for professional audio use in recording, mixing and mastering applications.
This plug-in is carefully crafted to provide an equalizer with a great sonic character and high performance.
Ivory3 provide four separate equalizer sections, with EQ in/out for each channel. All section are switchable between shelving & five different peaking responses.
The newest Ivory3 was sampled again to guarantee more precision and accuracy, it’s composed by double samples level for the gain, this resampling has been done so well that it was not necessary to syncronize (ULTRASYNC) any sample.
Ivory3 Eq Stereo is the stereo version of Ivory3 EQ (IAE-2), so each MONO-channels can be controlled independently or dependently by an identical set of controls.


Ivory3 Comp 1B (MAC-2) / Ivory3 Comp 3B (MAC-3)
IVORY3 suite is equipped with 2 different compressors, IVORY3 MAC-2 single band and IVORY3 MAC-2 multiband comp. The multiband compressor is a faithful emulation of units built by a celebrated UK company offering an accurate reproduction of the original device. The 1 band compressor derived directly from multiband compressor, it’s added to this pack to give to all customers a complete bundle. We’ve chosen to sample the best units in circulation to provide you with the perfect solution.


Dynamic EQs: Ivory3 DYNEQ/ Ivory3 DYNEQ Stereo
The real innovation in this suite is showcased by our Ivory Dyn EQ (dynamic equalizer).
It’s an extremely versatile and useful tool; it can be a powerful problem solver for many audio engineers, and we believe it’s going to become a milestone in our product line.
After the great result of Cobalt DYN EQ we decided to also introduce a new Dynamic Equalizer in this bundle, IVORY3 EQ and IVORY3 COMP merged in a single plugin.
The pack also includes the STEREO version of it!
The outcome of this fusion is an incredible Dynamic EQ (the second one based on sampling and FIR filters), characterized by several important features.


IVORY3 suite includes:

  • IVORY3
  • IVORY3 ZL (zero latency)
  • IVORY3 STEREO ZL (zero latency)
  • IVORY3 COMP 1B ZL (zero latency)
  • IVORY3 COMP 3B ZL (zero latency)
  • IVORY3 DYNQ ZL (zero latency)
  • IVORY3 DYNQ STEREO ZL (zero latency)
