ACQUA - Honey2

€129 €102 - Save 20% OFF

HONEY2 is a VST/AAX/AU plug-in which emulates a well-known American mixing desk that first appeared on the market in 1975. Many world hits have been recorded and mixed with this prized console, and still to this day many producers and sound engineers swear by its musicality and logical layout. Thanks to Acustica proprietary VVKT technology, now you can enjoy the same analog vibe, the same ease-of-use, the same depth without having to give up the convenience of working in the box.


HONEY2 offers the same celebrated equalizer and filter section of that acclaimed American console. The equalizer section consists of 4 variable-frequency peaking bands, the first and last of which can be switched to a shelving response. The EQ cells are designed to have a variable Q, depending on boost or cut levels. In all honesty, it's really difficult to make anything passing through this EQ sound bad.

Honey is based on the new Core7 engine, a revolutionary multithreading technology by Acustica which allows optimizing the use of system resources. Core7 is based on a fractal approach to partitioned convolution; it maximizes the performance of Acqua plug-ins by splitting the processing load into several real-time concurrent threads. Core7 introduces as well a new “Zero Latency” operating mode.
