Silver is a suite of Acqua plug-ins consisting of three FREE players available in the following formats: VST, VST3, AAX, and AU and dedicated to emulating reverbs of physical spaces and sampled equipment.
Silver is an amazing project that has taken a long time to design and develop and has paid off considerably given the incredible results obtained, in fact we have finally given birth to a new generation of cutting-edge reverb plug-ins.
Silver - Volume F includes 8 different emulations from a vintage Digital Reverberator under the name/category 'Lime 16'.
This unit was made in the early 1980s in Burnley, England, as displayed on the front panel of the device. Anyone familiar with these machines will have no difficulty in recognizing the model, a truly incredible device from all points of view.
It is a well-known classic digital reverberation system. When it came out, it was one of the first totally electronic reverberators on the market; the lack of any mechanical part, together with the reduction in size and noise, made this unit a standard back then. Still to this day it’s praised by sound engineers all over the world and used in high-profile productions everywhere.
This unit is a delightfully simple and straightforward reverb processor to set up and use and whatever algorithm is selected for a specific task, it always sounds exactly right with a minimum of tweaking.
Lime16 aims to give you the same convincing sound experience of the original hardware providing an absolutely gorgeous and realistic reverb emulation.
NOTE: In addition to the intrinsic characteristics of the reverb, thanks to Acustica’s technology you can also appreciate the harmonic distortion component of the unit in this emulation.
In the ‘Spaces category’ there are available (under the menu voice 'LIME16') 8 different emulations according to the desired Reverb type ( Program 1 – Ambience, Program 2 – Room, Program 3 - Hall 1, Program 4 – Plate, Program 5 – Chrorus, Program 6 – Echo, Program 7 - Non Lin, Program 8 – Reverse). Under the ‘Preset category’ there are 4 different choices based on selected reverb type.
To facilitate the understanding of the hardware emulations, when possible, we use the usual convention, so we have chosen compound names that include an apparent reference to the released 'Acqua plugin'. This should aid in the identification of the original sampled unit.
None of Silver's Volume F emulations are part of already released products. They are samples of hardware not included in the plugin suites currently released by Acustica.
