About Aero

Aero is a plugin suite consisting of two FREE players, AERO STOMP and AERO AMP, both available in VST2, VST3, AU and AAX format. They represent a pioneering and innovative new project from Acustica aimed at the world of sound design and guitar. It is our first suite of Acqua plug-ins using our revolutionary new AI-based Terra technology.

Their design and development took a long time, but this time, which we gladly spent, has been amply repaid by the incredible results achieved. We hope that AERO will improve your approach to ITB guitar effects, providing you with all-new tools to get the results you are looking for. Designed not to be homologated with current market standards and featuring emulations that are not 'pre-packaged' and sterile as a result of our painstaking, state of the art sampling.

Aero consists of:

1- Aero Stomp; FREE player focused on Pedals and Tonestacks.
  It includes by default:

  • an American Tonestack model.
  • three different pedals (from Distortion, Overdrive, Boost & Fuzz models).

2- Aero Amp; FREE player focused on Amps and Cabinets.
    It includes by default:

  • four head emulations derived from the same Classic American amplifier model with different settings that represent some of the best American tones from the 50s and 60s.
  • five emulations from a US cabinet according to the 5 selected mic and derived from a American Classic cabinet.

What's the idea behind Aero?

If your need is to find a particular and refined sound for your productions, Aero is the way to go. Unlike other manufacturers, Acustica's choice was to create a tool that provides a palette of sounds that give you the total freedom to be manipulated at will without any a priori imposition, e.g. equalization. Aero is definitely different from  other amp sims and so may be an acquired taste for some.

The sampling has been as pure as possible and  conceived more with the sound designer in mind than the guitarist purists. The result  is a dynamic and realistic sound that will make your guitar scream like never before, without all the typical sound limitations and artefacts that often make it difficult to harmonize guitars with the other tracks in the final mix.

Therefore, a little extra effort may be required to find the right sound, but the end result you can achieve is absolutely guaranteed!

Although Aero was designed as a creative tool for sound design, focused on the electric guitar, it is also great for processing and re-amping other instruments. For example, drum tracks can be processed to remedy an overly dead ambience, keyboards can be made livelier by warming up their sound with distortion pedals or guitar tube amps. Voices can be distorted  adding a little extra spice, new sounds can be created for truly exceptional effects... and much, much more.

Aero - Volume A

Aero Volume A comprises many American heads/EQ/Cabs and Pedals that we have carefully measured and profiled for a total of over 173 different emulations.

It includes:

  • 50 Pedals (Distortion, Overdrive, Boost & Fuzz)
  • 57 Heads/Amps
  • 66 Cabinets (sampled with 4 different microphones)

We started this project by exploiting the wonders made in the USA, then moved on to other Continents.
The result of this incredible journey led to the creation of Aero - Volume A, the first package in a series dedicated to the world of guitar and sound design.


- Other Additional Volumes/packages will be released in the near future
- For further information and explanations of each emulation, please take a look at the Aero User manual.
