...well, sometimes change is in the air...
Only a handful of days before the release of the latest Acqua library
by official Acustica Audio 3rd-party developer SoundDrops!
MANTIS 2 AND MANTIS MB
PWM COMPRESSOR BUNDLE
A year after the successful debut of SoundDrops’ first Nebula/Acqua library…
...MANTIS 2 PWM COMPRESSOR is back!
As much as it was a plain, single-instance Nebula program, MANTIS 1 PWM compressor was
prized as a very effective and musical processor, particularly suitable for bus dynamic control and
mastering duties. In this brand new MANTIS 2 BUNDLE by SoundDrops you’ll see how the young
MANTIS has come of age, complete with a multiband version and pre-amp/clipper stages...
A Trial Version is available as well.
And in typical Acustica fashion, please be aware that the greatly expanded MANTIS 2 BUNDLE is
free for all former MANTIS owners!
PURETEQ BUNDLE is a collection of three sought-after vacuum-tube based processors that have literally written the history of professional music recording.
PURETEQ BUNDLE includes 3 different plug-ins:
- PURETEQ-Q, modeled on a universally acclaimed program equalizer;
- PURETEQ-M, its mid-range specialized companion;
- PURETEQ-F, a 18dB/octave High- and Low-Pass passive filter bank.
In typical MetaWare fashion, the original functionality of each processor has been enhanced in ways that would be highly impractical, if not altogether impossible, in the analogue domain.
A transformer-coupled, vacuum-tube pre-amp stage is included in each plug-in.
PURETEQ BUNDLE: 80€
PURETEQ-FREE is available in your Aquarius account!!!
PURETEQ-FREE by SoundDrops is a complimentary plug-in available in Aquarius. It is offered as a free appetizer expressly designed to give you a little taste of the magic that its three bigger brothers in PURETEQ BUNDLE are able to work on your music.
PURETEQ-FREE includes two filtering cells directly taken from the commercial bundle.
The Low Frequency cell offers two separate controls for boosting and cutting the same frequency range; similarly to its analogue counterpart, when used simultaneously these controls create interesting and unique curves characterized by a typical dip in the low frequency response (often colloquially dubbed 'bump') that is extremely effective in keeping track of that low-mid 'mud' which often tarnishes music programs.
The High Frequency Boost cell, originally a bell-shaped curve with adjustable bandwidth, here is enhanced with the option to gradually morph into a classic High Shelf response, for maximum adaptability to any mixing situation.
Every single band in PURETEQ-FREE has been sampled in a separate session; as a result, there's no unwanted additional tone coloration, whatever the number of enabled bands: the final resulting frequency and phase response always represents exactly the sum of what each cell produces by itself, and nothing else. And all of this while retaining the all the great sonic traits of real world analogue hardware, down to the tiniest detail.
PURETEQ-FREE is already available at no cost in your Aquarius account.
