ZL version

Post by stephencole » Mon Apr 25, 2016 6:23 pm


I'm new to Acustica products, and I am wondering if there are any differences in CPU usage between the ZL version and the standard version of White? I understand that the ZL version is supposed to be 'zero-latency' but I'm wondering why there are two versions? I didn't see any explanation in the manual. Why would you want latency? All I can guess is that it is either more efficient in CPU usage, there is a sound quality difference, or it is simply for compatibility issues.

Thanks for the help!

Acqua Effects F.A.Q.

Q 7.19. I can see two instances of my Acqua Effect plug-in one is named as ZL. What ZL means?
R: Acqua Effect plug-ins based on CORE7 use multithreding technology by Acustica Audio. It's a fractal approach to partitioned convolution that allow to optimize Acqua Effects plug-ins performance for maximum use of system resources including zero latency mode (ZL). Instance marked with as ZL will have a minimum latency due the emulation presets loaded into the Acqua Effect plug-in engine.
