How will these different gui designs work exactly? Will they be separate VST's that will get installed and we will have the option to choose between the different display formats? Or will it be configurable like in a global setting of some sort?


Also, for us who pre-ordered (which I did), so we just get the additional frequencies, but not the hi-resolution pack in which there will be a separate purchase needed for that add-on item? Not sure if retina display means it is designed for Macs only and since I'm using Windows it would not apply.

- they are two different plugins. 3 rack one features also magenta filters. 2 rack one is a compact plug without filters and meters
- 3rack plugin is shipped with an installer upgrade, which features 44-48-88-96. The upgrade is free for users who bought it in presale. It replaces standard 44-96 one
- the retina description is confusing. It is an additional pack, very low priced which adds a 3 rack skin big-size. You replace existing one. Manually you could configure a separate plug if you want. Big size skin is useful for using magenta using a touch device, or extensively (ie mastering facility) and you need a clear interface, big sized and less fatiguing, or using a 4k lcd

This discounts before the plugin has left the market very well and is very good at follow an online marketing !! But not everything can be good, not ?? What about users who do not buy their products because they are waiting for a long time support for 64-bit Audio Unit? I not only speak of aqua, but the nebula, and I do not know if the day is released, we'll see some version AU64bits benefited in some way or another. Excellent work with plugins aqua, but hopefully the next release of any product is already developed by Acustica Audio AU64. I know there is a phase in Betatest work, but we do not know when it will launch, for too long we hear bells, but do not stop ringing.

Thanks

Hi Giancarlo, I went to the website to buy magenta today, and it seems the presale has ended, I thought it was until today (included).

Is impossible that I could buy it today with the presale?
(mostly for the 48k version that I was asking before)

I hope there´s a chance that you can include today in the presale.

Thank you very much!!!

Yes, I think it wasn´t very clear, if the 15th was included. I know it´s not a lot of money but if I then have to buy the 48k pack, I won´t be able to grab this one.

Maybe you can extend another day for us loosers that were left out of the presale?

thanks!
