I believe that the plug-in will be the best sounding thing.

Like one of those legendary units found in Olympic Studios in London in the 70s.

Any plans to sample one of those?

Viridian has Helios as well as some nice compressors, particularly the Pye comp.

A part of Product transfer policies, terms, and conditions:
Additional transfers may be requested, will cost at a fixed price of 25 euros plus the difference between the product purchase price and the retail price listed on the Acustica Audio store. Any additional support request pertaining to license transfers has a fixed cost of 25 euros.

What i have accept to pay now for transfer?

so they want their customer appreciation discounts back? lol

"Acustica Audio - A gift for you" it says on the emails. so much for the gift... forget on a business level... it is BAD even on a personal level to take back a 'gift' that is freely given.

beware of karma lol

If you ran out of free Aquarius Web transfers, then yes, the difference between the purchased price and the list price plus the 25 euro fee for each transfer.

Weird. I was under the impression that the difference price policy was scrapped for transfers. That there were a few free transfers and then afterwards was a flat fee. Which there is, but still with the price difference thing?

Correct, this was the situation for a few months, and then it quietly changed in late January 2021.

It was changed after years of user complaints, but the powers that be changed it back.

We all have to remember you don't own the software you buy, so AA can do anything they want with their IP. IMHO we end users have two legit options... use our voices to apply public pressure for change and vote with our money.

To each their own.

But I had him send pictures of his aquarius, and he indeed own the plugins he was selling. Moreover we can see his email account that is [email protected]

I contacted the support about this, and they told me that I should have shopped on their website, and that's too bad for me.

So I'm asking directly to you, can you do something about it? Several of your users have been scammed by another user, who has an account and own your plugins. Surely you have full power over the situation. Also, I remember Zaphod saying that he wanted a safe marketplace for his users, solving this case could be a first step.


Thanks ever so much
He is back and tries again, now on the official acustica facebook!

We do own a license to the software however and that is a tangible thing with intrinsic value. We should be allowed to buy and sell these licenses in an open market just like anything else we pay hard earned money for. AA are petty tyrants in regards to these licenses and transfer policy.

You can buy and you can sell pretty much all your products if you use the free slots from Aquarius Web in a smart way. And tyrants... wow! We are only a plugin company, not a national leader or mass murderers.

pet·ty /ˈpedē/
adjective 2. of secondary or lesser importance, rank, or scale; minor.

ty·rant /ˈtīrənt/
noun 1. a cruel and oppressive ruler.

The definition fits.

I just reached my limit of five transfers. Just pulled my remaining AA plugs off of the classifieds. This policy is ridiculous. If I want to sell my remaining AA plugins,
it will cost me way more than I spent! Makes it pointless.

You might want to reexamine your world perspective if an audio plugin manufacturer "rules" you.

Hm maybe if you buy a plugin at full price you get a transfer voucher? Might benefit all parties.

COBALT2 is OUT! We took Cobalt to a whole new level by completely resampling its EQ and preamp sections, for better performance and sound quality. Plus, we added two new features, for extra versatility.
Get it now at 40% off the price https://www.acustica-audio.com/store/products/cobalt

(*) As usual, the update is free for owners of the previous version of Cobalt

What's new?

• New M/S control in COBALT EQ (Stereo Equalizer).
• COBALT EQ and the EQ2 of COBALT Dynamic EQ now feature a -10/+10 dB gain excursion (PRESENCE control).
• All preamps have been resampled.
• Two new preamps were added to the COBALT PRE module.
• Meters have been optimized
• Various graphic improvements

Anyone who buys software should consider it disposable. After transfer costs basically worthless. These guys give you some free ones so consider yourself lucky. It costs them money maintaining databases etc. Also takes away buyers if you think about it.

Between sales and discounts I haven’t paid more than for a good algo and most AA products are multiple with free updates. That’s another revenue stream they forego so maybe tone down the rhetoric....

these are small operations and I’d be surprised on the risk reward scale if they’d be models for a business school profit center....
