ROCK YOUR MIX.

Simply put, SAND3 is the audio industry's biggest, most complete, insanely powerful and true-to-the-orginals plugin suite, created to give you the ultimate record-ready tone in the box.

We spent countless hours sampling the consoles and refining the sound of this suite so you can finally put an end to the endless search for that perfect console sound engineers have been raving about for decades.

In addition to a fully replicated channel strip, SAND3 includes 3 EQ modules, a compressor inspired by 3 different British units, and a preamp module, for a total of 6 plugins.

Last but not least, SAND3 packs the experience of 7 renowned engineers, who have been directly involved in the development of dedicated AI presets, ready for use.


METERS TO GO

SAND3 is equipped with different multivariable meters for the INPUT and OUTPUT stages including VU, Peak, True Peak, LUFS, K12, K14 and more. We did this to give you the utmost in level reference during mixing.

NEW EQ MODULES.

In SAND3 we introduced 2 extra EQ modules to give you even more tonal-shaping possibilities. SAND3 +E EQ is derived from an iconic british console - considered the desk which changed the face of mixing forever, whereas SAND3 +G EQ is derived from another revered British console which was introduced on the market in 1993. It features a switchable 4-band parametric equalisers with a preamp section and an additional high and low-pass filter set. Find out more in the user manual.

Another thing...maybe Acustica Audio should release a high definition master buss control meter (PEAK/RMS/VU/Loudness/etc...) with all needed informations and capabilities.
It would be a very interesting utility to add !!!! :mrgreen:

All the best

These forums are dead. Is the Facebook group where all of the action is?

Sometimes it takes a while to fully explore these really extended plugins. I've been a regular Sand user since the original Sand1 days. Today I tried out Sand3 EQ+G for the first time and fell in love! It was the perfect module to put between compression and mastering limiting to tighten up the sub bass. I love the 18db/oct. slope on the low filter. The 6k boost on top of that was the perfect touch of aggression and presence to finish out the treatment.

Congratulations on a spectacular sounding plugin!
