    Blown away, simply awesome on any track, bus or for any genre. Just got it with 10% pre-order discount and another 10% off on top with the kind help of @SoundForSoul aka Alex --- many thanks bud. Appreciate!

    Hoping to have creative fun and I am sure it will be used in almost all my mixes. And if I find it that good, I am going to uninstall most of the digital plugins.

    I strongly recommend to get in touch with Alex if you plan to buy AA stuff to get some good discount.

    Hail Acustica Audio!!! :beg:

    Thanks man :mates:

    Ask him :). He must be in agony now and on the verge of sending police to search anyone's computer for his cracked plugins :hillbilly:

    Do contact Alex. I got 20% off in total.

    I am in the same situation bro, may be tighter. I just thought not to loose the 10% pre-order sale, as Alex could help me with another 10% anytime I guess! Sincerely hope you get it soon too :wink:

    Great move. It's almost unreasonable how much joy I felt by reading your post ! :rofl:. I'm loving those plugs a bit too much, I think.:unsure:.

    Overwhelming, innit? I could swear by AA products even when I didn't have one. AA is true sanctuary for those looking for analogue vibe. Lol I feel upgraded now. Hehe

    An outrageously comfy sanctuary for analogue lovers indeed, :bow:.
    And your timing for pulling the trigger was perfect, at this price and with the upgraded version of A III, separated elements and twice the number of eq models available, you couldn't join the brotherhood at a better moment !

    Do you all prefer this to N4?

    Is it the same quality except its all in one plugin? And its emulation all comes from the same console?

    Any insight is great!

    Don't have N4, this is my first AA venture. Quality wise I assure you Acqua plugins are top notched.
    I think someone suitable like @Jaymz , @Von_Steyr , @Talmi or @WillTheWeirdo or any other pro users would shed some light.

    I'm currently mulling over whether to get Gold or Amethyst to add to Sand. :unsure:

    Congratulations!
    I just pulled the trigger on Gold yesterday. I found myself using the trial so much, I figured I'd better get it before I found myself too deep in the rabbit hole. It just makes things sit so much better in the mix. I compared to Sand, and while that is a great plug too, I found myself preferring the color from Gold usually. It really defined my drum busses. So much better clarity, punch, and no digital shrillness from the hats or ride.

    Thanks @ed-enam :bow: , I'm starting to know those from using them intensively, and I'll gladely help to differiencate between them. I think it's fair from me to say that those guys have far more knowledge and experience than me, and most of the things I know about on the AA subject came from them at 90% and 10% from reading manuals, and threads on the AA forum and on gearslutz. I would probably not have a damn clue about N4 or acquas if it weren't for them. :mates:
    So in technical terms they are the same, it's the same tech at heart, but the workflow and the appearance change according to which you use, acquas are easier on the eye and to use, Nebula has a lot more libraries (but from the previous Nebula version, the 3, which doesn't mean they are not quality library, but there were less possibilities when most of them were sampled and created and the way they work reflects that) but is quite a challenge to work with (I have no problem working with it, but I recognize it can be cumbersome and I can understand that some people don't enjoy it). Acquas are a nicely skinned container for a lot of Nebulas libraries (in a nutshell). But there is a twist and a hope for avid nebula users : it should become more and more like acquas like the latest libraries (who are in fact and ironicaly kind of "acquas", a lot of libraries contained in one, in nebula) Violet and Rose illustrate it, well hopefully it will. Third party developpers have to get on board, and AA has to ironed out N4, which has still promised features missing, and for some new features (possibility to run acquas for example) are still in beta versions and in devellopement.
    N4 is a bet, a promise. But it's also a solid tool right now since it can runs all the N3 libraries, and a few dedicated N4 libraries. There is no exact date, no certainty to know when all those promisses will be achieved, although I believe they will be, and sooner than latter (hopefully). No warranty. As it is now to me it's a wonderfull tool, but you have to really test its workflow in your work to find out if the way it works now will suit you. AA develops a lot of acquas right now, and upgrades a lot of the ones they release earlier, and it's not a huge company so there is no way to predict how fast the developpement of those new features and new libraries on n4 will take.
