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 G includes 9 different emulations from a vintage Digital Reverberator under the name/category ' Lace71'.
This great effect processor, well known for its classic sound, has been used by the world's top artists and recording studios and is still a benchmark and widely used to this day. It is a great sounding box for those who need a rich sound, lush, warm with grit and personality - all in a compact 19" rackmount unit in one space. Can definitely get 80s vibes if that's what you're looking for.
The sonic differences with other reverb units of the time were substantial, but great sounds are only half the story. The manufacturer of this model described it when it was launched as "unlike anything that has ever appeared before in an effects processor". The introduction of new selling points, such as Dynamic MIDI, made it a game changer, allowing it to be widely used and quickly becoming a reference product in many recording studios.
With Silver Volume G you have access to emulations of these incredible reverb!
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 'Lace71') 16 different emulations according to the desired Reverb type ( A-1 Concert Hall, A-2 Long Hall, A-3 Gym, A-4 Rich Chamber, B-1 Small Room, D-1 Tiled Room, D-2 Gated Chamber, D-3 Inf Rev, E-1 Rich Plate, E-2 Small Plate, E-3 Gated Plate, E-4 Let me go, E-5 Everybody, E-6 Extra 1, E-7 Extra 2, E-8 Extra 3). Under the ‘Preset category’ there are 4 different choices based on selected reverb types (Tiled Room, Rich Chamber, Gated Plate, Extra 3).
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 G emulations are part of already released products. They are samples of hardware not included in the plugin suites currently released by Acustica.
