Pink3 Commercial web-page:


Pink3 is an upgraded VST/AAX/AU Plug-in Bundle which is based around a collection of well known late '60s American gear that is still built to this day and enjoys a great deal of admiration among engineers all around the world.
We at Acustica Audio take pride in the first version of Pink and we consider it to be among one of our flagship products. Its release was followed by an immediate success and appreciation, and its development gave way to a series of important technological improvements within our Core engine.
Today Acustica is pleased to present to you Pink3 – a logical Evolution towards a better mature version of its predecessor.
Pink3 includes a plugin GUI restyling and the CORE 13 upgrade.

Package contents

Pink2 is a bundle consisting of 6 different plug-ins:

• Pink3 215: Preamp module with 8 different circuit distortion models.
• Pink3 780: 10 band graphic EQ.
• Pink3 1650: 4 band EQ module with 4 selectable per band models.
• Pink3 2412: Single band compressor.
• Pink3 7236: Multiband compressor.
• Pink3 Channel Strip: Full channel strip with EQ, compressors and preamp options.


Pink3 is based on our Core 13 engine:

-NEW: Our new Core 13 engine improves on the previous version by introducing our new VLA™ technology (Vector Loading Acceleration), which makes the response of the plugin much faster.
-Upgraded SASM (Symmetric & Asymmetric Saturation Modeling) high-performance saturation algorithm;
-Introduction of a new post-production sample de-noising tech for cleaner deconvolved impulses called STT (Super transient technology);
-Full compatibility with Client/Server architecture integrated by default in Acqua plugins;
-Engine optimization introducing a new highly efficient algorithm. This innovative technique is applied to all the deconvolved impulses for further de-noise processing and subsequent elimination of any incorrect low-level behavior (including the so-called "echo bug").

-Download and Install Aquarius, our products manager, for either Mac or PC
-Log in to Aquarius using your user email and password
-Type the product name in the 'search' field inside Aquarius to find the '(trial)' version of the product, then click on the thumbnail or on the 'Install' button. This will take you to the product page (the trial version of a product is also visible in the 'related products' section on the right)
-Select the right plugin format according to the DAW you are using and click 'Install'
-Aquarius will download, install,and authorise the trial product automatically

The old trial authorisation method - which required the 'LASTTRIALS' code - is now obsolete and each trial version of a product can be easily downloaded/installed directly from Aquarius, for a more streamlined process
Should you see an authorisation error, the reason could be that the product has been already authorised too many times and the limit has been reached

Are we certain that the proper files were released with this update? Many users on the Facebook page aren't noticing any change in the CPU performance? Seems to be exactly the same as that of Pink 2...

For Windows VST3 I noticed a definite performance increase for project/session loads.

Which OS and platform are you using?
