This is important. Tools are tools. Trust your ears and use anything, anywhere it can help.

Most things historically have been designated as "mastering" or "mixing" specific for marketing reasons, or to differentiate rotary switched, carefully-matched stereo HW units from lower tolerance/potentiometer-based builds with greater gain ranges in the same product line.

Why not an "algorithmic" approach?

He is maybe following stories in my instagram page (giancarloacustica)
It is a personal page about acustica things only (even meals are acustica ones!)- connected with the official Facebook acusticaaudio page, you see things from the ceo point of view.
I'm revealing a lot of things there (i like the 24 hours deadline thingy, so all leaks are somewhat controlled and I know "who knows what").
I'm trying also to be connected with you (trying to follow as many users as possible) so I know what you need! I'm also replying as many messages as possible there.
The account was created just a month ago, it is a new initiative, I'm spending a lot of time there


About diamond: no other things are planned on this front. The product will not be discounted further, we'll not include the product in other bundles or strips

Yes the idea is to build a bidirectional channel and provide a continuously updated direction we are following

Fantastic..look forward to the video.

Just wondering as you said in one of your post "just eq releases isn't enough", will there be a compressor offered with Diamond v2 upgrade in the near future or this will remain as an EQ only?

How does one tweak the XML file so the dials jump directly to the available positions on the 'dial'?

I find it counter intuitive and quite annoying to try and dial in a spot you think would sound perfect, only to have the dial flick to the left or right.

Because of the marketing gimmick on this one I thought it would suck, and maybe I could save some money.

I was wrong...

Good job, this one is awesome for EDM and punchy stuff!

This also works well using fine adjustments using very slight boosts / cuts.

Just tried it on mastering a track & boosting 40hz one increment. Other plugins I tried failed where this was simple & effective.

It's just what I was looking for in my toolbox.

Thanks for your reactivity! I was able to test it on a session and Coral fits perfectly my needs on the low end (the others bands sound really good too)

Diamond has special highs and sounds so good, very simple workflow, bravo!

You build the bridge between my high-end analog chain and the others plugins. I didn't test yet to replace my analog chain with your plugins but I will, to see..

So, I buy both, thanks for these great tools!

Best,

This is a great plugin. All-round solid with a sweet high end and it also looks great. Very nice.

Again a great sounding tool! Very cool Giancarlo and Luca!! I am curious about the advanced preamp technique, what exactly is going on? What is new? And is this maybe a first step towards real saturation and distortion in the nebula realm?
