so there will actually be a pearl 2, nice :D
i think a beautiful eq like this deserve it

its a shame Pearl was limited because its so good sounding
its truly special :mrgreen:

i would like a proper installer for the temporary fix though, but i will get trough it if i must, so with this fix i can also use ZL ? :)

i dont think it will be possible selling limited editions of a product

i would not mind if Acustica opened up the limited of Pearl perhaps in v2 so all could buy it
it would add great sales to Acustica no doubt

its the best sounding top end eq`s of the Acqua EQ`s still to this date IMO
perhaps give current Pearl owners a good discount
on they're product of choice so they wont be too upset about it
i wouldn't be upset even without a discount code but thats me :)
to me it would add more fun discussing this great eq with new users :)

i know Acustica is focused on great products,
well this is a great product and its a shame no one can buy it

but what ever Acustica chose`s to do i will respect that


Cheers

less confusion i would say
Because reported issues in pearl are really few
- Less interpolation errors than other products, almost perfect
- No advantages from core8

We are waiting for new things to place on the table
Don't forget what happened to amethyst: it could have shmod and mix with a bit of patience. We released quickly version 2 and there is no space for version 3 in the short period. The more you wait, the better the product.

I think they were referring to maybe another round of releases...Pearl was a limited run, don't expect it.....

well its already been said that there will be a Pearl 2 by AA in previous page
im sure AA don't go back on their word :)

im not unhappy with the sound, that's not it,
i in fact love the sound and it has one of the best sounding Acqua top end boost to my ears if not the best,

only AA Acqua eq`s i haven't tried is scarlet 3 and the white
but to my knowledge the white hasn't a hi shelf so that leaves only a Pearl vs Scarlet3 to me,
they would still not sound the same though , no acqua does and what would be the point if they did sound the same lol , but i really hope i find much to love in Scarlet 3 too and that the hi shelf is something i really like about it even beside the mighty Pearl :)

i really love the hi shelf of Pearl and it even sound great and very very special beside some of the best nebula eq`s that got some of the best top ends to me :)

but i would like to see proper installers for it for the ZL
i would be more than happy with core7 for Pearl as long as we get a regular and a separate ZL version for it

in logic it still got bugs like chopping off audio in the beginning of the song

perhaps that is fixed after i moved to windows
if that's the case i apologize for bringing that up hehe

but going into the Xml file to turn on/off ZL is not what i wanted,
its absolutely better than nothing if its a temporary solution of course :)

could it be a workaround about that,
perhaps manually duplicate the installed Pearl and call the duplicate ZL our selves and turn on the ZL in the XML file with the ZL duplicate ?

i would not continue nagging about this if the Pearl wasn't so darn good sounding hehe

AA did a fantastic job on this eq, but i refuse to be punished for small sales on this one lol

i wasn't the one that decided this was gonna be a limited edition forever
AA did hehe

i hope in the future if AA decide to release a new limited edition
that there will be a unbearable time limitation instead of a limited forever limitation lol


Cheers and happy holidays :) 8-)

And please let the GUI designer have a look at the GUI one more time.

The latest plugins like Amethyst and Pink have a much better font size, read ability and overall better look than Pearl. I do like the basic GUI, the knobs etc, but the fonts could be slightly larger and the resolution could be higher.

- after all this is the special, limited version of a fantastic Nebula plugin, - probably the only plugin in the world with only 100 copies...!

I think it deserves to be the Black diamond of Nebula :D

Thanks!

There might be no chance to see the update of pearl.

Core 7 or 8 of pearl may not be necessary. But it is promised.

I guess I would consider more when buying AA plugins in later days.

Is PEARL2 also going to be a limited edition? The 100 plugins restriction only concerns PEARL1 I think.

It shouldn't be. Pearl is Pearl , not Pearl v2, v3

It was advertised & sold as a collectors item & a limited edition.
