Would it make sense to use the high pass and low pass of the Mammoth in coordination with Magenta? I work at 96k, and though the Mammoth is not completely 96k, its high and low pass filters are!

If this does make sense, does it matter which goes first in the signal path, Mammoth or Magenta?

I'm talking to my mastering engineer to buy it and use it on my upcoming album :)

Hi Giancarlo, I know that you are very busy and we should release this EQ ASAP. I also know that it will sounds absolutely amazing as it is. I personally think that it will be one of the best things in the Nebula and in general the ITB world as it is. With such price it is a no-brainer and I think it will turn into a flagship plug-in for Acustica.

However, below is just my personal opinion about a possible V2 release in the future (even if this would be after 6 months or so.., even if it would be available for a small upgrade fee).

1) It would be really good to have the filters in the plug-in for mastering reasons (with on & off option)
2) it would be great to have an on & off button for the pre/harmonic distortion (especially for mastering reasons)
3) it would make an amazing add-on to release an extra plug-in with the filters & the pre only for mixing reasons (again with on & off buttons both for the filters and the pre). This would allow to have the filters/pre in the start of your insert chain and the EQ somewhere else (possible post-compression).

IMO such upgrade will really make the EQ an absolute beast and give a lot of flexibility both for mastering and mixing - such that it would be impossible in the hardware world.

Cheers

I've listened to de demo and a demo in this topic and I must say wow I'm impressed. You should have called it the Emotion EQ, because in my opinion the best way to describe the sound the EQ generates, is adding emotion to the music, making it musical. Not just warmth or bright or whatever, it just really makes it musical (that low-end holy shit!). I'm amazed what difference it can make to the perception someone will have about your song, although it's that exact same song, but with the warmth of this EQ it just makes the song sound like real music with strong emotions. Maybe non-engineers won't hear this at the first listen but I am sure they will feel it, even more when it gets played out loud at festivals/concerts. (Does this make sense in anyway because I'm not good at explaining things very often :D )

Anyway, before I preorder, I can run this plugin without the nebula interface correct? So for example just as a standalone AU plugin on Logic Pro (without dongle etc...)

Btw quick tip for people that say they often hear just subtle changes and don't have their ear maybe yet developed as a listening ear: Instead of playing the Original first and then the processed, try playing the processed first and then the original. It will blow your mind if you listen through some good headphones or monitors.

yes, that's how acquas work, completely "standalone", no need for nebula. authorization goes via serial/auth file.

about logic and au 64 bit, you may need bluecats patchwork or another wrapper for the 64 bit vst.
i don't know if magenta will be released in au 64 bit, this may come later.
au 32 bit is available.
somebody from acustica needs to clarify this.
