ACQUA - Pink2

PINK2 is a VST/AAX/AU plug-in bundle which is based around a collection of well-known late ‘60s American gear that is still built to this day and enjoys a great deal of admiration among engineers all around the world.
We at Acustica Audio talk with pride of the first version of Pink and we consider it to be among one of our flagship products. Its release was followed by an immediate success and appreciation, and its development gave way to a series of important technological improvements.


Today Acustica is pleased to present to you PINK2 – a logical evolution towards a better and fully mature version of its predecessor.
This update brings much more than just a simple GUI restyling: it’s a real technological leap that leads to an incomparable sound quality within the Aqua series. PINK2 is the first of Acustica plug-in based on CORE 12, a significant upgrade featuring new important features affecting both the performance and sonic quality of our products.

PINK2 is a bundle consisting of 6 different plug-ins:

• PINK2 215 - Preamp module with 8 different circuit distortion models
• PINK2 780 - 10 band graphic EQ
• PINK2 1650 - 4 band EQ module with 4 selectable per band models
• PINK2 2412 - Single band compressor
PINK2 7236 - Multiband compressor
PINK2 Channel Strip - Full channel strip with EQ, compressors and preamp options


With 5 different EQ models, a super flexible single band and multiband compressors and a collection of preamps (circuit distortion emulations), this is one of the most complete suites offered by Acustica. We are proud to introduce to you what can be defined as the ultimate collection of plug-ins, conceived and designed to become an integral part of your “go to” favorite equipment.


Core 12 represents a new technological advancement by Acustica:

  • Upgraded SASM (Symmetric & Asymmetric Saturation Modeling) high performance saturation algorithm;
  • Introduction of a new post-production sample de-noising tech for cleaner deconvolved impulses called STT (Super transient technology);
  • Full compatibility with Client/Server architecture integrated by default in Acqua plugins;
  • Engine optimization introducing a new highly efficient algorithm. This innovative technique is applied to all the deconvolved impulses for further de-noise processing and subsequent elimination of any incorrect low-level behavior (including the so-called "echo bug").

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.
