is there a timeline or expectation for older acqua plugins to be updated to core 7 or 8?

For example, blue, titanium,...etc. the latency makes them unusable, but Pink is amazing.

:D

I use all of the old Acquas with zero issues...Just don't use them tracking and save them for mixing when you can raise your buffers a bit...latency is not an issue mixing (unless you do some pretty intense automation)

someone yesterday asked about how sontec knobs look like.
I share this post, it is a new recente device. It is a pity there are not so many good pictures on the web, so I'm sharing
We are not affiliated with them, I remember to everyone scarlet is an homebrew/home-made hardware product and there is no business connection between acustica and them. Take pictures for what they are, examples of the hardware interface for demostration purposes.

This picture was taken under the sunlight. Speaking strictly about reflections on the pots, scarlet3 knobs have the same glare you could get in a studio light environment.
The shape of the knob is slighly different because we were not sure about existing trademarks on them. Scarlet3 looks quite differently, but the glare/reflection is "similar".

Nice unit. :) The knobs are very reflective.

In Scarlet 3 please do not make the knob reflections very bright.

No bright white reflections on a black knob cap. Make the reflections grey so they are not distracting.

And all the the indicator lights are too big.
And the red, yellow, blue colour all around each knob looks meh.
Keep the little red pointers as in your photo.

It is beautiful as it is. Just better than real one. Nicer... cooler. Haha real company should copy plugin design.

flipnaut you have included your comment inside my quote. Please fix that.

There is too much contrast between the black and white on the knobs.

The thin circle of colour around all the knobs looks yuck.

The indicator lights style does not match the style of the knobs.

previous picture is not for showing that we are copying a sontec. It is showing the material used in a real sontec, which is REALLY reflective and it is the same material used in Scarlet 3. Everything started because you was saying knobs in sontec were based on different material and with a lower glare, which is not exactly the truth.
Reason for the blue is the reflection of the sky, because the picture was taken with the sunlight, outside the studio. Normally in the studio the device appears "gray", with a very high reflection (you could not use flash at all, otherwise those knobs would reflect completely it, they are similar to mirrors).

Said that,

scarlet 3 is not a sontec

There is no point in copying a design, and to be honest, we could BE SUED FOR DOING THAT WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION.
This is the GUI for Scarlet3, it will not change.

If you want a different gui for Scarlet4 open a ticket.
