Acustica Audio’s ACQUA – Mint Is Currently Half Price

Acustica Audio have reduced the price of ACQUA Mint, now only €69.00, (usually €139.00). The offer ends March 5th.

Mint is a suite consisting of four different plug-ins embodying a very rare solid-state console called GL2112 built by an engineer from a well-known Swiss company on commission in the late 1970s.

Mint is the second in a new series of ‘Boutique Collection’ Acqua plugins that aims to reproduce the essence of unique gear, those elusive, extremely hard to find devices, of which very few units were ever built and/or whose traces have almost been lost in the mist of time.

The centerpiece of this project is the recreation of an iconic vintage analog console module assembled with the best elements that Swiss technology offered at that time, sampled thanks to the invaluable contribution of Oxygen Recording Studio and the guitarist, producer and sound engineer Paride Lanciani, the owner of this priceless equipment.

Mint brings together emulations derived from the extremely rare GL2112 console, which was built as a prototype by a ‘Guru’ designer and engineer from a well-known Swiss Pro Audio company, who built them to order and went on to create professional equipment for various studios around the world. Any engineer and sound creator will immediately be captivated by the unique features of this plugin suite.

What’s included:

  • MINT EQ: a 4-band EQ (Peculiarities: a double 80-16000 Hz for the Mids) with Bass Cut plus eight Line solid-state preamps from the eight channels derived from the GL2112 console from the 70s.
  • MINT COMP: a Solid-State Compressor / Limiter; featuring 3 different switchable dynamic processor emulations (the origi-nal model called COMP 1, a ‘Frankenstein mode more aggressive by Acustica called COMP2 and finally the Limiter) with a preamp emulation.
  • MINT PRE: sixteen Line preamplifiers, sixteen Mic preamplifiers and two Stereo buses to recreate the same sound as the original console, powerful and colorful sound that can evolve into a range of distortions whose musicality is unmatched. Plus, to make the section even more interesting, two extra preamp emulations have been added, derived from a tape machine with different settings, which is one of the standard models par excellence used and sought after in the world’s major studios. In particular, this unit has been meticu-lously restored by Tony Arnold, who was one of the manufacturer’s official engineers in Europe and embodies part of the sound of the Oxygen recording studio.
  • MINT CHANNEL STRIP: a 4-band EQ, a Compressor/limiter with 3 different switchable modes, a complete preamp section with a Drive control

Each plugin included in the Mint 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. For further details consult the Indigo user’s manual in the Overview section.
