Blues/Rock and Acqua

If you were commissioned for a blues/rock mix and could only use two Acqua plugs for the entirety of the mix, which two would you go with? I know that seems pretty limiting, so as a second parter, what instruments in this blues/rock mix would you use Acqua plugs on over any other brand, and what Acq...

Using Aqua with Reaper vs Pro Tools on Mac

I have a pretty powerful MacBook Pro; I never run into any problems when using Pro Tools. However, the Aqua plugs that I've tried run insanely sluggish and always cause the "run out of memory" message. This is especially the case when I run 96 Hz sessions. I've read that Reaper handles Aqua WAY bett...

Initial ACQUA releases come with both 96k and 44.1k native sample Libraries.

At a later point, AA releases the 48 and 88.2k expansion paks. [N/C].
Do these sample libraries come with the trial versions or the full versions only?

Plugin Suggestions

I'm thinking of buying a few AA plugins, but there are just so many awesome ones to pick from. I play rock, blues/rock, heavy blues/rock, etc. Which AA plugs do you like, or are your go to for this type of stuff? I liked Lime best out of the ones I've tried. Gold is cool, but a bit to creamy for mos...

Aqua Harware Emulations

Hey, where can I find out what hardware Aqua is emulating with each of their plugins. Some are easy to figure out, like Ultramarine is a Fairchild, Purple a Pultec and Pink is some kind of A*I. What are the other plugs?

Thanks,

All I've downloaded so far are the three free plugins, Red, Tan and Ochre. Red and Tan downloaded fine. Ochre's status bar looks full, but won't...

Re: NebulaFree - N4 Demo Not Working

I finally got the N4 demo working, but the 14 day library trial has long since expired! It's too bad.. it seems like those free libraries have some cool plugins.. I'm not sure what I did to get Nebula (N4) to work, but hopefully I can find some quality free demos. There are some cool looking ones o...

Sliders/faders snapping to OFF position usually indicates a non-registered plugin. note: be sure to read the manual. very helpful. I have Aquarius Lite and it's just a blank window. Where...

I installed the NebulaFree (N4) demo along with both library bundles on this site. N4 loads fine as an insert in Pro Tools. All the programs from the library bundles seemingly load fine into N4. The problem is when trying to adjust any of the knobs/faders. After I adjust the value, and let go of the...
