Yes, having both options is perfect. Each user can decide, then : authenticity or precision.

Still wrapping my mind around Ebony. This is definitely a special release.

Initial impressions are that this is THE suite for that 60's/70's EMT sound. The whole thing reminds me of a lot of old records. I never thought I would love dipping 150hz this much for a quick boom reduction. Playing with 2k on different tracks let me set the perfect level of "honk." The EQ curves and gritty sounding filters just scream. I found uses for all the EQ's easily, and they sounded very nice together.

The pres are fantastic. I really like the E411 for poking out guitars, snares, or vocals. The D82 on bass brought out that perfect "thuddy-purr." Of course, the D437S over the whole mix glued things extremely well.

Compressors... I don't even remember what I used where, but all the compressors/expander found a duty somewhere. Thick and hard transients, very tasty! Great when crushing them in parallel too!

Then there's the reverb, which is spacial-gluing machine! Really enjoyed hearing all the reverb's tonal/spacial capabilities and variances. Like Gian has said, it doesn't get metallic. To my ears, it gets fuller and less percussive with higher input levels, which makes it fun to play with :lol:

I'm going to need more time with the reverb. Still not sure how I feel about the "authenticity vs. precision" kernels, but super cool that it's an option! Going to need more time with the whole thing honestly, but phew... this release really covers a very cool era/style of sound. I think I'll be using this WAY more than I had originally thought!

possibly a bug on the D473 compressor:
with treshold = 0
comp 1:1 1.5:1 and 2:1
there is still a compression action until -6db

then with 3:1 and above all seems to be regular as expected.

Windows 32 bit an 64 bit VST

anyone else?

Morning: After two days of trial, my nerves (ears) could not resist and I gave in. :shock:
Evening: It's been a few hours since I bought the ebony. :D
The first impression is the compressors. :o Glue, vintage sound of the 70's and many, many other epithets (and of course the killer expander!!! :twisted: )
Magic Equalizer friendly with the CPU. :D Preamps...WoW!!! :P
And....REVERB!!! :shock: So cool to glue the tracks and the whole mix there is no other effect.
I don't write about the channel strip because the CPU showed me two middle fingers! :cry: But I hope in the future to optimize or maybe I'll go to the new Core-i9. (Yes, Yes! I still think to sell a kidney because looking towards Ultramarine 3)
Right Now: Acustica Audio as Always on Top! G and AA Team Thank you for all that you invented and created!!! BRAVO!!! :D :D :D

Just happily demoed the verb on OS X (AU) last night. Yeah, wow!

What a beautiful and seem less way to give space to anything. Mono to stereo. Panning a source hard left/right and the verb on the opposite. I can do all these things that just never quite worked on all other verbs, and somehow it just works here.

One question; as much as I love the short ambiance uses for this, I'd equally like to use it as a Radiohead style long tail effect.

However, I'm finding that this nearly doesn't exist at all. If I turn the EARLY/LATE all the way to late, I get EXTREMELY low output. I have to you gain plugins to get +48dB to get any type of useable level, and even then, the early signal is still predominant. I can faintly here this somewhat odd sounding tail (at full decay setting).

I also seem to have this behavior where the late signal is actually delayed significantly from the early, and this seems to change based on the buffer size of my DAW (Logic Pro and Ableton Live).

I certainly love this as is, but I did quite love the VNXT EMT for it's ability to give you those super long cavernous REVERBS (rather than ambiance), but Ebony sounds so much better than that so I'm hoping the tails are there and I'm just experiencing a bug.

Cheers and congrats on another great release!
