What i fear is occuring is mixing scripng breakthroughs, like corex, with new products which IS either MADE, or has made and then samples, and this is the product we get, so both are important but the two aspects are not the same. Otherwise wed have no updates. and do appreciate the updates with the extra compression, deeply. esp, in my case, i am very thankful. AA is the best plugin comany ive come across and is and will be my goto until im pushing daisies. But in the end of day the value of gear is relative to consumers needs or practical neccessity and or penchants.

I mean this to be constructive and not derogatory. It has been hard to express myself well last months, if not year, i apolgize for that.
thank you.
Be well, and i wish you all fortune.

@ nous777

We don't have to buy every Acqua that comes out from AA just because they are the best. Every Acqua releases from today onwards will always outshine the previous Acqua because it will always be better.

Just for the record, i did not buy the latest best-est Acqua plugs like Pearl2, Gold, Cobalt or Amethyst3 because i don't need them even tho they sound fantastic. I chose Diamond instead hahaha.

Just be wise and choose what we need for our music. We do have limits in our pockets ;)

As for Ebony, i will demo but i may or not buy it...depends :D

If AA comes up with a TC 6000, Bricasti or 480L..i would buy them in a heart beat hahaha but until then, i watch what i'm buying :)

There are 2 kind of musicians/producers:
1) collectors
2) musicians/producers

The first ones will mainly tend to buy everything, keeping themselves busy to tweak, try, and update.
The second ones do mainly their best music, even with just with Acquavox, TAN, and RedEQ.

The history is plenty of awesome albums made passing by "just" through SAND or LIME.
Having this vaste choice from AA should be perceived as an advantage that our fathers hadn't, not a doomed spiral.

Then keep calm, love AA, and your music ;)

Lol! Im in the same path... cant afford evrything but their sound is terrible fantastic :) Will see how Ebony works, ive got many channel strips from Acustica, but the thing of the reverb is what it has me worried about. Will see how this ends :D

Details
- 140 reverb. Till 5th harmonics. Separate early and late reflections
Separate harmonics control = only acustica does it
Separate early/reflections and predelay on late reflections only = never achieved in any other acustica acqua or nebula library
- Rare 111 and 411 module equalizers (2 consoles)
- 277 rackmount compressor, featuring also expander ratios! First time in acustica land, not possible till now.
- 112 console compressor, featuring also 487 attack times
- 487 rackmount compressor (n.man)
- Ultrarare e 82 broadcasting console and compressor.

- Very powerful routing, with dry/wet lines

= Mindblowing. Easily the Acustica product of the year

Thought Cobalt was already doing 'expansion' when an eq1 band was above 0 and Dyn button engaged? How does Ebony's dynamic section differ then?

Yes cobalt do expansion, but using a trick. You expand to a level, but you don't follow a static curve derived from reduction or sampled expansion, with a real physical expander behavior and a target ratio.. Basically the effect is an exponential curve, not a linear one. It's a matter of curves.
Cobalt does the trick using a blender. On the other side, ebony achieves expansion using the compressor approach. But the compressor approach had limitations on nebula funs because you are adding gain. Normally you do it using sources, but sources are limited to a range and it is not possible to "add"
So basically cobalt does expansion, but it is not really a classic expander. Nebula cannot do it using raw funs. It is still possible using normal funs but you could not measure reduction - so basically it is useless, there is no control in such case and deconvolution is trivial.

I won't buy anything new from AA for a while i guess , i got almost everything released already and it's more than enough to make great music !

Besides , i'm "punished" for being offline (Aquarius lite) , no extra slots and i can't "trial" anything anymore ... just buy !

A bit "Funny" for someone who's been buying from AA since the first Aqua , not to mention N3 , N4 and all the 3rd party librarys ...

I'm happy with all i own but it's time to make the best out of these great tools and i need a pair of new monitors to really hear what's going on anyway .

I'm not making any money out of mixing , i'm an instumentist in the first place , i used to make money out of my compositions and get incomes from la "SACEM" but not anymore atm :(

A bon entendeur , Salut !

PS : I kinda wish G dropped me a line but anytime i mentionned abt my problem , he plays "ghost" , a bit annoying isn't it ?
