ACQUA - Ebony


EBONY is an innovative VST/AAX/AU plug-in suite which comprises accurate software emulations of a number of different mixing consoles and processors built between the 60s and the 70s by pro-audio German and Dutch companies. EBONY includes 3 different equalizers plus filters, 4 compressors, 6 preamps and a real plate reverb from the 60s! Each of these modules has been carefully crafted with the goal of building a set of awesome sounding professional-grade tools for the most demanding pros.



EBONY is a suite that includes 5 different plug-ins:

  • EBONY (channel-strip)

We have put an insane amount of passion in this project - Ebony is indeed a true audio 'BEAUTIFUL-IZER'!

"When you first listen to it on its own, you think 'It sounds like a plate. It doesn't sound like other plug in plates'. And then you bring it up in the track and the source just MELTS. The reverb and the source together become one sound, one silky, floating sound".

EBONY is based on CORE X:

  • Input level can now exceed +3 dBFS without adverse sonic consequences.
  • New algorithm for hard-clipping.
  • New "Multi-input System" implemented.
