All of us would like to use natural physical spaces for reverberation because they sound more natural, as it is our way of perceiving space in our daily experience. Unfortunately, physical areas are challenging to manage because of their resonances and slight imperfections, so convolution reverbs often tend to sound static and dimensionless.
Silver comes to the rescue in a unique and innovative way as it recreates the listening experience in theaters, rooms, churches, recording studios, and other real-world environments to give you the highest quality reverb based on dynamic convolution. We sampled all the best physical areas for you to have a wide and fresh sound with a unique naturalness.
Experience our innovative way 'to naturally reverb'.




Reverb is an essential part of every mix as it plays a significant role in music production, and we all know how difficult it is to tweak it to get the most out of it. Reverbs have the complex task of recreating the virtual environments in which your instruments play to achieve a more natural sound for the human ear since it is the way we perceive space in our daily experience.
Thanks to our experience with SIENNA, we have created a revolutionary processor that uses DSP & artificial intelligence: SILVER.

What you get

Silver is a suite of Acqua plug-ins consisting of three FREE players in VST, AU, and AAX formats that emulate reverbs of physical spaces and sampled equipment as well. It is an amazing project that has taken a long time and much effort to design and develop, and well, it did pay off considerably given the incredible results obtained! in fact, we have finally given birth to a new generation of cutting-edge reverb plug-ins.

Silver consists of:

1- Silver: the main FREE player (standard version) featuring fine-tuning controls, LP and HP filters, plus a 3-band EQ applied to the reverberated signal source. It contains, by default, four different emulated physical spaces.
2- Silver Mini: a mini FREE version of the Silver player, which includes the same features as Silver except for the mid-band EQ and a smaller display than the main version.
3- Silver Lite: an alternative FREE version of the player that includes the same features of Silver but does not include the LP and HP filters and the 3-band EQ.




What's the idea behind Silver?

With the Silver suite, you can make your audio source sound as if it's being played elsewhere, adding the acoustics of existing physical spaces to your productions.
This project stems from the idea to introduce a state-of-art product to the software market that can stand out from the rest thanks to its unique features to help change the way people use reverbs.
Our aim is to introduce to the software market a product of the highest quality that is unique from the rest, helping to breathe new life into the approach of physical sampling spaces by exploiting a proprietary technology capable of producing reverbs of the highest quality and fidelity. SILVER corrects each reflection, leading to micro-equalization resulting in a defect-free version of the entire reverb tail, making the sound much more natural.
Silver differs from all other reverb plug-ins by three unique features:

- The perfection control is unique and allows you to correct the sampled space by eliminating problems created by the actual geometry of the room. Think of it as an equalizer that works on every reflection, and a slider allows you to dose the environment's response with an "ideal" one for each context. Let me give you an example; the reverb in a church might be dark or have strange reflections, but you can correct them with this perfection slider and dose the original ones making the reverb more flexible.
- The time control modifies the tail of the reverb with the highest possible quality. Many convolution reverbs don't pay enough attention to this. What happens is that this step often affects the final quality of the result by distorting the first reflections in an unmusical way. With Silver, You can abuse this control and modify the tail of the reverb by increasing or decreasing its length at will, and the sound will remain simply fantastic.
- Convolution reverbs tend to sound static, creating a sort of sound texture that tends to be disconnected from the musical context. We have worked relentlessly to correct this flaw until we get this final result that you will hear particularly alive and dynamic. We have applied all the experience gained from Sienna to have the most immersive crossfeed possible, with a wide and natural soundstage. The reverb is, in our opinion, so beautiful that a single instance is enough to make a difference in the music you love.

Silver brings you the freshness you've always desired and lusted because it's so smooth and liquid.

What you get

We started by taking advantage of the wonderful cultural heritage of our nation, rich in historically, architecturally and acoustically interesting places, and then moved on to Europe as well.
The result of this journey led to the creation of Silver - Volume A, the first package in a series dedicated to reverbs, which includes a large number of what we believe is a series of carefully selected and acoustically attractive physical spaces.
Below are some of the most representative emulations you will find in this rich Volume:

Chiesa Santa Maria del Lago

Category: Religious
Located: Moscufo - Pescara - Italy
Description: The Romanesque church of Santa Maria del Lago takes its name from the nearby forest (Lucus). It was probably built on pre-existing Roman ruins and is the only surviving building of the 12th-century Benedictine abbey, as evidenced by the inscription (1159) on the ambo. Three different emulations are available for this building with varying distances from the capture source, plus a fourth artificial emulation called LARGEx3 achieved by increasing the length of the reverb considerably.


The Sphere Studio

Category: Studio and Scoring
Located: Montesilvano - Pescara - Italy
Description: The Spheres is a recording studio and events space in Pescara-Montesilvano (Italy) on the Adriatic coast. The studio was designed principally for acoustic music but is versatile and welcomes all genres. The studio was founded by Odradek Records, a democratic cooperative record label based in the United States, active in classical, jazz, and world music. Aside from being the home for Odradek projects, the control room is a stereo Tom Hidley-inspired non-environment space. The planning and acoustic were designed by John Anderson.


Castello Bolognini

Category: Music Misc
Located: SantAngelo Lodigiano - Lodi - Italy
Description: Castello Bolognini in Lodi (Italy) is located in Lombardy in the municipality of Sant'Angelo Lodigiano in the province of Lodi, Italy, a castle dated back to the 13th century, it was the dwelling house of important families: Visconti, Sforza, and finally the Bolognini dynasty who were the owners until the first half of the 20th century. We sampled three different locations for this building with varying distances from the capture source, plus a fourth artificial emulation called Largex3 achieved by increasing the length of the reverb considerably.


Bed & Breakfast La Gallina

Category: Public Spaces
Located: Lodi - Italy
Description: Main room of a B&B in Lodi - Italy


Prime Studios

Category: Studio and Scoring
Located: Mils - Austria
Description: Prime Studio is a recording, mixing, and post-production studio located in the beautiful Austrian Alps. Its one of the best facilities in Europe for the Audio Pro. The studio's clients thrive on its inspiring location, light, airy spaces, and first-rate equipment specs. We have had the pleasure and good fortune to sample these studios, and as a result, within Silver Volume A, you will be able to use several emulations (with different distances from the capture source) derived from 10 other physical spaces.
