Acustica is proud to release an upgrade of N4, this upgrade is free for all current N4 owners.
N4 is our fastest-processing, best-performing, plug-in creation yet, a multieffect plug-in in VST/AU/AAX format for PC and MAC. N4 emulates the character and personality of analog hardware with exacting accuracy allowing you to emulate and replicate several types of expensive audio equipment, eliminating the need for costly and bulky studio hardware. Whether it is high end outboard equalizers, classic compressors, the latest reverbs, or vintage time-variant effects like phasers and flangers, N4 has them all. Experience the full power of our proprietary audio processing technology, based on Vectorial Volterra Kernels, and find out what Nebula technology can do for you! N4 is bundled with over 450 included presets, you'll be adding the warmth of analog to your digital mixes in no time at all. N4 load emulation presets from factory library or from 3rd developers which are created using a sophisticated sampling approach with a custom stand alone application developed also by Acustica Audio, making it possible to record the main aspects of the sound of audio devices and play them back using N4. The result of this sampling process is highly realistic, complex emulations of many types of audio signal processes, captured and utilized all within N4 VST/AU/AAX plug-in that is compatible with all major audio sequencers and non lineal editing software.
Inside this bundle you will find:
Acustica is pleased to introduce with N4 pack our amazing Rose acqua plug-in. It's free for N4 owners and it is based on CORE9.
Rose is a compressor with a double identity. At the click of a switch, it is able to change its personality from a gentle and forgiving action to a tight, superfast control down to the sharpest transient.
The reason behind this versatility is easily explained. Two distinct hardware compressors with very different attitudes have been built and sampled specifically for this plugin: an optical device and an FET-based one.
The opto compressor is built around a Vactrol cell. You might call it the “Dr. Jekyll” of the pair, since its features are those typical of all the compressors based on this technology: a smooth gain-reducing action, a soft knee, and last but not least, attack and release curves shaped in a way that over the years has proven especially good for vocals and bass instruments. The optical cell isn't the fastest device in the world, but its action is always musical and easily set. You'll be surprised by how much gain reduction you can achieve on most materials before things start to sound weird. And even more so with some HP filtering in the sidechain.
The FET compressor is a whole other story. Its typical traits are a lightning-fast action and aggressive A/R curves; furthermore, it can easily talked into pumping like mad. All these features make an FET device ideal for heavy drums/percussion processing and for any other task where a snappy reaction is needed. Parallel compression (aka New York compression) is another field in which our unsettling “Mr. Hyde” excels.
Core 12 represents a new technological advancement by Acustica:
Core 12 allows performance improvements for each plug-in of the Acqua Effects series, while at the same time preserving all the features already supported in previous CORE upgrades.
