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 L includes 6 different true stereo emulations from a vintage Analog Plate Reverberator under the name/category 'Ebony 140 ST'.
This is the Holy Grail of reverbs! The first plate reverberation unit designed in 1957 by Wilhelm Franz marked a significant change in recording history, simplifying the process of affecting recorded sound while providing the engineer with a more versatile and customizable interface.
What is the special feature that makes this Volume a real must-have? Besides providing 6 different vintage plate reverb emulations each with different time settings, they are True Stereo! In fact, two different 140 plates have been combined to create these emulations, this actually makes a night and day difference thank just having a single reverb. You get a much better and very realistic sound, it will surprise you how much it makes a difference!
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 6 different true stereo emulations according to the desired reverb time (TIME 0.5 TIME 1 TIME 2 TIME 3 TIME 4 TIME 5). Under the ‘Preset category’ there are 3 different choices based on selected reverb type: VOCAL I, CLEAR PLATE, CONCERT HALL. Under the ‘Preset category’ there are 3 different choices based on selected reverb time: Short, Medium, Long.
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 L emulations are part of already released products. They are samples of hardware not included in the plugin suites currently released by Acustica.
