Acustica Audio have reduced the price of ACQUA – Honey3 for a limited time, now only €59.00, (usually €159.00). The offer ends February 26th.
Honey3 packs all the power and musicality of a world-class American console, highly regarded by many industry professionals for its musicality and logical layout.
Since 1975, numerous top-selling records have been crafted on this marvelous piece of audio engineering, including gems like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, Paul Simon’s “Graceland”, as well as many hits by AC/DC, ABBA, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, and many more.
We managed to find one of these consoles in a stunning condition so we called up our collaborator SoundDrops to meticulously sample the console in its entirety, replicating its full sonic DNA inside our plugin suite, which you can now use to sweet up your tracks.
The original console design doesn’t feature a compressor though. And we REALLY wanted to include one. So we built it. We built a superb-sounding VCA unit and transformed into a home-brew processor, whose character is a natural extension of the original designs.
Honey3 includes 4 separate plugins. A home-brew version of a famous EQ (CLASSIC), a faithful VINTAGE version of the same unit, the above-mentioned VCA compressor, and a channel strip that includes select modules, wisely chosen by the Acustica team. Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside the suite.
- Honey3 Vintage EQ (A 4-Band standalone Equalizer with high and low cut filters derived from a 70s American series console).
- Honey3 Classic EQ (A 4-Band standalone Classic Equalizer with high and low cut filters inspired by a broadcast console built by the same renowned American manufacturer).
- Honey3 Comp (A versatile VCA-based channel compressor based on a feed-forward topology).
- Honey3 Channel-strip (A Channel strip that includes some of the previously cited standalone plugins)
Each plug-in included in the Honey3 suite comes in a “Standard” version and an alternative “ZL*” version which operates at *zero latency and is thus suitable for use when tracking, at the cost of extra processing resources.
ACQUA – Honey3 is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX).
