ACQUA - Big Ceil


Take control over your 2-bus


Big Ceil is your ultimate British channel-strip which includes many classic designs in one comprehensive production collection.

In fact, BigCeil is the augmented version of an already versatile processor, which we have made even more powerful by adding additional features and flavors. An extended, straight-to-the-point EQ section, a magic 'air' knob, to add sparkle to your tracks, giving the illusion of a natural space 'around' the sound, plus independent pan controls for Left and Right channels.



Big Ceil was sampled using a new experimental automatized approach that utilizes a very accurate machine-based procedure, for even more accuracy.
We physically opened the machine and directly sampled the circuit paths so we could eliminate any unnecessary stages to best represent the most authentic character of such a classy machine. Plus, in doing so, we have minimized the risk associated with the human error which is always around the corner - we are humans after all! - We are more than sure that you will enjoy the final results very much.

Celestial Mastering Edition

In addition to the Celestial bundle: a two-plugin suite tailored for sound manglers who want to add some creative texturizing and psychoacoustic action to their tracks, we released an extra version of the Celestial line.

Our users have been asking for a version of the Celestial mix bus processor with ruler-flat frequency response, for precision mastering duties.

So we started tweaking things, but while the response was improved, it still wasn't possible to go fully flat due to both the architecture of the plugin itself and the nature of the hardware.

So we decided to develop an extra, dedicated plug-in for the suite called Celestial Mastering Edition, which differs from the other ones in that the mid-side encoding and the related controls (Elliptic and Dimension) all happen after the signal has been summed back together. 

This approach allows for a truly flat response across the frequency range, something that is not possible in the hardware.
