I think we applied a sort of presale price, because I have this "180 eur" in my mind. Anyway we'll check and we'll adopt the same exact one.

This would give to the customer less anxiety on the availability side and more attention on the product sound/features evaluation.

I cannot promise anything but we'll try to do. We are really running.

Such is the nature of Pearl. The original was only sold to 99 people. This one obviously has three times that number but it's following the same concept.

I'm actually quite excited about the possibility of the authorization app being available within the next month or two. Are there any details about it anywhere? Are we going to be able to transfer licenses around if we need to work on different machines?

Yep 180 presale.

And also, for those wondering about the nature of pearl, it's as simple as a buy before you try thingy, i actually worried that upon the release date i wouldn't be able to be a part of it. By that we also got a broken demo because the unit was damaged upon shipping, i still bought it as soon as money arrived because the hi-shelf were tremendous. And still there were complaints about it not being available, when even after 2 weeks if i recall it wasn't completely sold out and that surprised me, this time just save and grab, it's a bargain the tone is something else really!

Best,

Are you hinting that people who did not get the chance to buy Pearl 1 have the opportunity now? or is it just for customers of Pearl 1?

This is still the weirdest deal in software. I'd feel too guilty to use it myself, as the whole mission of Acustica was to bring exclusive world class tools to the rest of us.

Acustica, you are mad geniuses. With Pearl, the emphasis being on the mad!

there's a difference in tone, as i have only tried the old version of Silk i cannot speak for the new versions since Tim is constantly improving both techniques of sampling and libraries.

Pearl is something else, it's incredibly smooth a bit dark but at the same time it has a sheen that can really "repair" audio at the same time: it's something else really. Usually when there's a sort of faded timbre to these kind of units they tend to bring the highs down.

the tone has the same sheen as gold, that's the only right-brained association i can really make, it's truly classy.

they are completely different, it really depends on your needs, N4 is the platform itself and it comes with a real nice factory library that covers mix/mastering range nicely, if you're an owner of a lot of neb3 libraries and use them daily then the upgrade seems like a legit choice to me too. However me being an owner of both, i really couldn't give you any advice than to live low and pay large.


very best,
