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 K includes 30 different emulations from a vintage Digital Reverberator under the name/category 'Russet VR 1990'.
Silver - Volume K is based on a large digital rack reverb produced in Japan, released in 1984, built like a tank and includes some nice and really interesting reverbs.
It has several reverb effects, such as a natural reverb and a non-linear reverb. Although it is definite-ly digital, many of the unit's different reverb settings can be adjusted in a 'warm' way to give an ana-logue impression.
It's a reverb that stands out from the crowd, for creatives who want to experiment with sound. It is great on guitars, drums but also on vocals and synthesisers. It has contributed its undisputed quality to dozens of critically acclaimed albums by many artists such as: Robert Plant, Steve Vai, Klaus Schulze, Chris & Cosey and many others.
Acustica has made the best of this unit by creating several convincing emulations that are super lush, but not overbearing!
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 'Russet VR 1990') 30 different emulations according to the desired reverb type.
List: VOCAL I , VOCAL II , LARGE HALL, MEDIUM HALL (I), SMALL HALL, LARGE ROOM (I), MEDIUM ROOM (I), SMALL ROOM (I), CLEAR PLATE, TUNNEL CON-CRETE PIPE, LARGE CHAPEL, OUTDOOR THEATER, NON LINEAR, NON LINEAR (IN-VERSE), SMALL ROOM (II), MEDIUM HALL (II), SLAP BACK, MEDIUM BRIGHT ROOM, CONCERT HALL, LIVE ROOM, SMALL BRIGHT HALL, LARGE ROOM (II), REFLEC-TIONS, DIGITAL CHAMBER, REVERB #1, MEDIUM ROOM (II), DELAY SMALL HALL, DIGITAL TAJ MAHAL, DRUM GATE.
Under the ‘Preset category’ there are 3 different choices based on selected reverb type: VOCAL I, CLEAR PLATE, CONCERT HALL.
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 K emulations are part of already released products. They are samples of hardware not included in the plugin suites currently released by Acustica.
