El Rey User's manual: https://app.box.com/shared/static/zaak9 ... eznanr.pdf

“El Rey” is the third plugin of our DIAMOND series, created by Acustica Audio and Studio DMI, in collaboration with multiple GRAMMY®-nominated producer, songwriter, musician and mixing engineer Greg Wells and including exclusive presets from some of the industry's most important names ever.

Take one of the music industry's most talented and respected engineers: Greg Wells’, who has worked with a plethora of international artists like Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Adele, Mayer Hawthorne, Twenty One Pilots, OneRepublic, Grace VanderWaal, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, Pharrell Williams, Dua Lipa, Deftones, Aerosmith, Burt Bacharach, Celine Dion - just to name a few.

Then take one of the finest and musical sounding analog tube compressors and add a bit of voodoo to expand it's essence and gradually transform it into something extraordinary, through a thorough process of experimentation, artistic judgment, and trial-and-error, with the aim of extending the capabilities of hardware through Acustica's breakthrough technology.

Then take exclusive, finely crafted presets from GRAMMY®-winning, Multi-platinum and Award-winning engineers Dave Pensado, Joe Chiccarelli, Serban Ghenea, Jason Evigan, David Kalmusky, Alan Meyerson, Mark 'Spike' Stent, busbee and Mark Rubel - whose credits are so extensive that it would take forever to list them all.

This is the secret recipe for El Rey.

How long does the intro pricing on EL REY last ?

There is so many good AA Black Friday deals this year it would be better to pick up some other Acquas i missed the intro pricing on
and go for EL REY later, but before the EL REY EARLY ACCESS period ends

Thanks

I am also very curious about how long this intro pricing is for El Rey. I am gonna pick it up, but need to know if it will be this price after cyber-monday too or if it will be changed soon to a different „early access“-price.
Thank you AA for this amazing tool!

Thank you AA for this amazing tool!
it seems like the 45% off is to cyber-monday only, after this it will go full price i think
I asked on the GS EL REY thread the same questions and this was what G wrote back :

(Originally Posted by zaphod View Post
discounted this way: the blackfriday/cybermonday is guaranteed. Normally we extend black friday a littlr bit, but we stop as soon as sales drop consistently. Take your time for testing but don’t hesitate if you find it good: black friday is the only period of the year where we have deals! (for the exception of the presale/early access one)



I think we have only 3 days to test and make up our minds on EL REY before the sale ends
Maybe it will be a little longer than Monday but i cant plan anything on maybe

EDIT: its confirmed by Greg its on sale trough the weekend


Cheers

i used my monthly AA discount coupon on it , i usually receive 45% off discounts codes because i bought quite a few Acquas already
so 45% off on top of the EL REY Black Friday deal that also have 45% off was an amazing deal :D

dont forget everyone that if you have loyalty coupons you can use them on any Acqua also during Black Friday sales(except Ruby)
