Amethyst 3 - TBR 10-11th may

Post by giancarlo » Thu May 04, 2017 10:53 am

This update will be free for actual customers
Planned release date shifted a little bit (it was planned for tomorrow, but realistically we want to add several days for further testing and fixing)

Soon we'll explain new features and fixes

is there more added to Amethys3 than a re-sampled eq
and a upgraded comp with Shmod ?
is this the reason why the original release date was delayed, more parts more troubleshooting ? ;)

Thanks

we added a rackmount 9098, separate plugins.
The eq was not resampled, though

Any reason the EQ wasn't resampled? Couldn't you take advantage with your latest breakthroughs (ultrasync)?

Because it was already sampled properly
We also prefer the continuous action

Yes, the EQ already sounds amazing! One of my few preferred.

Very good stuff ! I really appreciate your choice of keeping the continuous control for the eq ! Amethyst might be my next purchase :) Super excited !

Amethyst 2 is great, eq sound fantastic, can't wait to see this updated. The separate plugs will be a big plus.
Will the updated strip be gentler on the cpu ? Be a bit more responsive (will it be core9) ?

i cant possible see the eq be more CPU efficient
since the eq isn't a re-sample
and it was core 7 sampled
i could be wrong though :)

I agree lol. After all the excitement over the last releases this silence is kinda :? :? No real superlatives to describe the improvements to Amethyst as seen previously with other releases.

it's an update... with a new eq and a fixed compressor (but you could access the previous one with a button if you liked it...)
There are separate modules (eq, comp, preamp), we used ultrasync.. we used ultramatch... like for gold I can guarantee it will be noise-spike free...
We preferred the old core7 behaviour for knobs because the eq is not stepped... the compressor is continuous too (so it is unique in acqua land: you can dial continuous attack/release times)...
Stedal is "improving" the "glove" mode right now (our unit was acting "strangely" in that mode; it's a long story; in any case we are improving the original design with a continuous transition between the normal state and the "glovy" one)
that's all...
