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 M includes 22 different emulations from a sophisticated Digital Reverb and Effects unit under the name/category ‘KEPPEL 780’.
Silver - Volume M is based on a vintage, 80s Digital Reverb and Effects unit, built by one of the most prestigious British audio companies, with a 40-year pedigree and even a TEC Lifetime Achievement Award to back it up.
The original unit (1986 – Kidderminster, U.K.) is not simply a digital reverberation/delay processor, it is considered by leading audio engineers around the world as the industry standard. This reverb unit gives the user a unique and flexible means of producing realistic acoustic simulations for environ-ments of all types and sizes. It’s a compact 2U, 19 inch rack-mounting device equally at home in the recording studio, dubbing suite, broadcasting studio or on the road. Still today, it is considered one of the greatest sounding reverbs ever made.
The original device offers unique and incredible reverberations that cannot be found elsewhere! They are extremely useful, especially in a thick rock or pop mix. If you like natural/transparent reverbs, the 780 is a good addition if you want to give your source more character, density and something differ-ent, compared to other digital reverbs.
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 'KEPPEL 780') 22 different emulations according to the desired reverb type ( 01 HALL 1, 02 HALL 2, 03 HALL 3, 04 HALL 4, 05 HALL 5, 06 PLATE 1, 07 PLATE 2, 08 PLATE 3, 09 PLATE 4, 10 PLATE 5, 11 CHAMBER 1, 12 CHAMBER 2, 13 CHAMBER 3, 14 CHAMBER 4, 15 CHAMBER 5, 16 ROOM 1, 17 ROOM 2, 18 ROOM 3, 19 ROOM 4, 26 ALIVE, 27 NON LIN, 33 MULTITAP). Under the ‘Preset category’ there are 4 different choices based on selected reverb type: HALL1, PLATE1, CHAMBER1, ROOM1.
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 M emulations are part of already released products. They are samples of hardware not included in the plugin suites currently released by Acustica.
