Acustica Eminence - FREE!

Recommended Posts

gift for the one you love and one for you, too, from Acustica’s team!

EMINENCE, a free ‘Creamy’ channel strip, is our Xmas gift for you!

Get this 'vintage' tool to add mojo to your music with that old-school sound.

Add “rare” and special flavor to your tracks thanks to the ultra-rare 60s British 3-band EQ, famously used in probably one of the best and most mythical worldwide recording studios.

Go grab it and enjoy our Xmas sale until January 7, 2022

Looks like their copywriter has just learned about apostrophes and quotation marks:

  • 'Creamy'
  • 'vintage'
  • "mojo"
  • 'Cream-style'
  • 'Frankenstein'
  • ‘Old school’
  • “rare”

"Nice".

I guess their plugins are great but outside of that there is much to dislike such as their delivery system.  I've heard more than once some of their stuff is not resource friendly.

Grammar be tossed. I'm holding out for 'Cholesterol'.

"Freely choke any number of cpu cores you might have and grind your mojo to special flavored dust with this mythical tool.  

Featuring a hyper skeuomorphic user interface inspired by vintage science fiction illustrators utilizing a plethora of ultra-rare knobs which we can't be bothered to explain in our famously 'old school' documentation. 

Go grab it and channel your frustration thanks to the gargantuan downloads that will probably be completed by January 7, 2022."

You may hate on Acustica, but their plugins sound INSANELY GOOD!
Resource intensive?  YES...

That does seem to be the case. Recently A/B'd Ultramarine vs. the UAD 670 in a complex mix and could clearly hear the difference I was looking for, once it was done pummeling a fairly robust cpu. It's got me checking prices on the latest from Intel. fwiw, did buy the Ultramarine, just having some fun with marketing which has nothing to do with function/performance.

Don't forget to "purge" the Acustica "Aquarius" installers following successful plugin installations. I recovered 3.5GB of my SSD drive space that was being used for this purpose.

In Aquarius settings, Installation tab, Stage area path, "Purge" button...

There’s an Uninstall option in the Acustica Installer app. Would that take care of it all?

Holy Moly!  I had 40 Gb sitting there that I didn't even know about!

(I didn't purge them...I moved to my my archive drive)

Good to know that all I need is a 57 core CPU and not an additional SSD.  🙂

Well if you just want to purge the installation files from the staging area, and not actually uninstall the plugin. The Aquarius app apparently doesn't drop the installers in the normal downloads area on your machine, at least on Windows, it does not.

To set the path click the gear in the upper right of Aquarius then click the Installation tab

If all projects use the same sample rate, there is no need to have all the samples in the nebula repository. Deleting unused samples may shrink the install footprint considerably.

That's only 7 channel strips. Not enough for a multitrack session. Just sayin'

I wouldn’t do this, have tried in the past and led to a lot of minor issues like plugins deauthorising, etc. Not worth the hassle. Acustica should really only give user option of downloading sample rates they want, massive bloat the current way

This makes total sense to me. Same as there's no point installing plugin types I'll never use. I pretty much only install VST3 these days unless there's an issue with the VST3 version for some reason, or they don't have one available.

Most installers allow you to select only VST3, but still, frustratingly, some don't. Acustica is good in that way at least, but I like the idea of also being able to trim them down by only choosing the required sample rate too. Great idea! 🙂

Apparently everyone wants the creamy vintage mojo because I can't connect to their server.

Turns out the problem was an old version of their download manager.
