ACQUA - Amber3


Class-A legend.


Amber3 VST/AAX/AU plugin suite offers an accurate reproduction of an original, pure Class A optical compressor, a redesigned iconic EQ, and preamp by a celebrated US company. In designing Amber3, we aimed at achieving total sound purity and depth, achieved through the use of Class-A discrete solid-state circuitry, as well as a thoughtful mixture of active and passive filter cells, absence of any DC-blocking capacitors on the signal path, and more. We then squeezed all the sampled units into a high-performance channel-strip for your own earvana.

In addition to all this, we implemented a brand new creative control called Shine, which allows you to go smoothly from a shelf filter to a peak filter. Have fun!


Thanks to the continuous evolution of our core technology, we are excited to offer you a fresh and updated version of our acclaimed Amber plugin, which is now a complete plugin suite for the modern producer:

Amber3 includes:

  • Amber3 EQ (Equalizer standalone module) - a Pure Class-A musical equalizer, designed to deliver sonic excellence. Today it could be ranked as one of the most powerful, low-noise parametric EQs available in the digital domain.
  • Amber3 Stereo EQ (Stereo Equalizer standalone module) - a Pure 100% discrete Class-A Stereo EQ, characterized by an ultra-realistic design, optimized for absolute signal integrity. It can be considered one of the most musically transparent analog EQ ever created.
  • Amber3 Comp (Compressor standalone module) - Class A Opto-compressor: a very transparent, dynamic processor designed to deliver utmost musical performance.
  • Amber3 Pre (Preamps standalone module) - fully discrete, Class-A microphone preamplifier standalone plugin.
  • Amber3 Channel-strip - one of the most complete and versatile channel strips we have ever designed, comprising all the previous plugins and squeezing all their power into a single, mix-ready processor. Amber3 Channel-strip is ideal for both mastering and mixing studios;

Each plug-in included in the Amber3 suite comes in a “Standard” version and an alternative “ZL*” version which operates at *zero latency and is thus suitable for use when tracking, at the cost of extra processing resources.
