@AcuaticaCM. just checkin'... I recently purchased Tulip, which in my opinion is an excellent sounding plug in that filled a need for lifting the mid highs on a piece that nothing else in my portfolio was quite able to do. After the purchase, I noticed I am now in the 50% bracket of the Loyalty Coupon Program...so does this qualify me for Frost promo? I sent in a ticket to support, but no reply yet. Could you check into this? Thanks!

That would be cool if they grandfathered you in before the end of the Frost promo!

Thanks for checking! Frost has been added to my account. That's cool! (no pun intended). I was already using the trail...awesome clipper and compressor and I'm sure I'll find good uses for everything else!

I think the correct words for both techs would be sampled vs modeled, instead of sampled vs algo.

algo stands for 'algorithm' which is usually pure code (mathematically modeled). sadly there is no standard on how people speak or express themselves j/k

What matters in the end is that it's understood. Super precise semantics and the insight that everything is algorithms is a bonus. ^^

It is a type of error that we are trying to understand, and it sometimes happens in package product updates. It is related to an update of a part

It had also been used in the early days.
Honestly we directly never refer to "algo," but it was used by users in common descriptions. I prefer to talk about the FIR approach because for a long time we used pretty much only it. Lately there are also things in IIR.
Even the concept of sampling is no longer enough, because I could, for example, create an IIR based on black box and sampling and an error minimization technique, or model it manually.
In general, we are the company that is most often using black box techniques to model building blocks of various types that are then assembled into more complex products. A practical example is taking an entire fairchild sampled and approached in a black box way and making it the transient manager of a brickwall limiter.

dear Acustica,

PLEASE can a future app installer, have a 'install all' where I can tick one box for vst3/vst/etc and click go please! Like with the excellent installer of Plugin Alliance.
Thanks

Also, I find the updates confusing. Maybe they could all go on in the background of each app upgrade with the installers all in it, again like Plugin Alliance/slate (very slick, slate installer!) - I think now Acustica have established the respect they have earned, maybe time to think about slicking up the installer/update/uninstaller app please thanks

If anyone is interested. I just did a shootout between "fire the pump" and my elysia Karacter hardware. With the new hyper tech the saturation is there!!! and to be honest I can't say one was better than the other. The only thing that was slightly better with the hardware was the high end, it was maybe 3% smoother, but the stereo image on fire the pump seemed a tiny, tiny bit better! I think a lot of people are unaware of what they got for free here!

If it reassures you, green and greenzen hugely buggy on PC. Told them a year ago already. Trial has been updated, still buggy... One year im waiting and still wont buy it. Maybe the official one is working fine but i wont break my head on it.

I tried vst 3 as well, same. I mean unusable. Knobs blocked and cant be turned.
Only the mix eq works in the trial version.
I have bugs on gold also. Choosing a certain eq can literally block the entire plug, you have to shut it down and reload it. Still usable but can be pretty annoying.

From the behavior you mention, knobs not turning [or snapping back],
this has an Authorization issue.

My second guess ... A computer 'Permissions' issue. AQUARIUS needs to be run in 'Administrative' mode.

Not saying that is the exact or only issue ... but possible indicators.

I looked into the Beta-tester LOGS, and not seeing any outstanding issue
as you describe with either Green or Gold. They both run flawless on my system ... but these are computers ... so MMV.

Should look to Support to get this resolved.

That's classic 'Authorization' issue.

thought ... did you use a different Email by chance ?

anyway ... Support can get this straightened out.

GreenZen is very good.

just checked. i was wrong. zen eq is working only on right channel. no sound out from zen comp; one of his gain reductin meter is at max...

at least i can still buy it and then ask for refund if it doesnt work.


for black friday i can find others options. Coffee for example. I try to not accumulate too much and buy what i wil really use. So i always try to find excuse to not take plugins.
