I authorized the old way too, no problem there but Aquarius is buggy ( for me at least)
I'm using the trial ATM, maybe that has something to do with it like in the past?
Also presets function not working here, Studio One Cubase etc..again trial?

I'll work on Aquarius at a later time.
Right now I'm more interested in testing DCEQ.

I've tried it on a few mastering projects & am getting some nice results.
Interesting what happens when I place it either pre/post Pearl.
No problems I can report except the preset browser isn't working ( trial version maybe?)Otherwise the performance is snappy & it sounds excellent.

I can see this becoming a handy tool for mixing & mastering.

Congrats on the release.

There's a mistake in the manual - the first 20kHz frequency plot is labeled as 15kHz ...do I win a prize? :D

Actually I am scared to try it until I have more money in my bank account, I watched the video with Luca and realised it will help me to work much faster for many things.

A question: what you've written on the store about Diamond's Core 9 features (such as the AAX wrapper) - are these new features or are they already enabled in the other Core 9 Aquas?

yes, this is a core9 product, based on ultrasync and even several new improvements

from gs, several considerations:
This one is imho our best one: straightforward, light, easy, incredible sound, very analog result, zero aliasing when preamp is not engaged
Again: variable harmonic distortion (first time in acqua series), impressive sonic performances. This tool is USED in latest major lazer release and other dozens of remixes just because the betatesting, and the original (and now abandoned hardware models) used by Luca in countless productions. The tool was just released and imho it is already a classic one! Enjoy it!
I'm grateful because Luca was kind enough to share an important element of his signature sound.

Very important consideration: this tool is meant to be a complete replacement of hardware tools it is modeling
I'm telling you Luca literally replaced his previous hardware gear, and he is happy this new one is even more flexible and sonically equivalent.

You don't have a fake clone. You have IT.

Regarding admin rights on Windows - if Aquarius Lite can't copy authorization file, it shows a message about it and suggests you to run program as admin.

Detailed report about Aquarius Lite communication with server can be obtained by enabling LOGWINDOW tag in AquariusLite.settings file. You can send content of message window to me (using copy/paste).
