Or with aquamarine, the threshold is moving from minimum to max very fast and all the time when playing the song.
etc...

Then, I reload the VST2 Version of all New updates, and no more trouble.

Am i alone ?

Did I do something wrong ?

Thanks for advice.

Ted.

I've a Mac Pro Late 2013 - 12 Cores - 128 Gb Ram - Hight Sierra - Reaper.
I don't know if it's related, but I read that bugs occur with acqua vst3. I only install/use vst2 acquas for this reason.

I still don't use VST3 with AA, they've always caused problems for me. It's a fairly common reported issue among others.

I've just bought Amber3, primarily to use preamp 2 on the master after reading about it here. Anyone know what preamp 2 is from? The unofficial list doesn't have any details on the preamps.

Au, aax and vst3 will get a proper update, we'll support also sidechain in a better way
We are also migrating the code to new compilers for Mac os, and debugging it further.

IK Multimedia have released a tape plugin, apparently using "dynamic convolution". Has anyone checked it out? Compared it to Taupe? https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/trtapemac/

There are some comparisons to Taupe in the dedicated threads, both here on GS and at KVR.
Bmanic touches on the issue in the KVR thread.

I think they're excellent & prefer them over Taupe which is static. With IK's you can drive the inputs, sounds closer to tape than many others. I'm using them on mixes, mastering, asst. tracks but not for heavy mangling. The models are all different, they can be smooth, warm, punchy etc.. very nice collection.

It’s really good. Like REALLY good. Love my AA plugins and want to love Taupe but it’s too static compared to an algorithm. Especially where it counts, in the low end... Anyway the IK Tapes really do a smash up job.

It's funny, Taupe is the one Acqua I like more and more that I use it... I'm really starting to pick up on the subtle compression stuff. I'll try IK but I dislike their rack/central software thing almost as much as I dislike Waves Central.

Have you ever used TB RealBus 4? That seems to get a lot of attention. Curious how IK stacks up.

I haven't. I had some TB plugins years ago but thought they were pretty middle of the road... That said I haven't checked them out in forever so wouldn't be surprised if they've gotten much better.

I don't dislike Taupe per se, (the tape module, other modules are great). But to me it functions more like a static EQ curve with light saturation and dynamic characteristics.. (The dynamic behavior's also too static for my taste.)

The other thing is that it doesn't fatten up the way tape does when you deliberately smack it around a little. I guess I'd describe it as missing the 'spank' factor. (Which I feel the IK plugins do really well.)

That's great news! The quadro channel works ok, but a bit tedious to set up.
I really miss sidechain implementation in IVORY4 (3B) multiband and DMI studio LIFT2 as I often use these on my stereobus. Then it would be so easy to make correct stems to my clients.

I bought the Puremagnetik Verv synth a few weeks ago, put it in my plugin folder and now the guis of all my acqua plugins are messed up looking like deformed creations of that Verv synth with some buttons left from the original acquas.

I tried removing Verv from the plugin folder, but the acqua guis are still messed up.

I think I remember someone having similar problems here...what was the solution?

I have had the same problem with some Hornet plugins and one more eq plugin. But I could get the guis back by restarting Reaper and not using those plugins.
This issue was only with VST2 versions of Aquas. I contacted support and they aaid to clean the reaper cache and closed the issue.
In the end I am not using the hornet sw34 and the other eq which is causing this issue.

Honey 3 confirmed. They will probably release it tomorrow.

Bought it not a long time ago, and it's a nice eq. Let's see what more they'll bring this time.

I bought it, really liked it, LOVED the filters but didn’t use it much. The EQ seemed to be super easy to dial in and ‘never suck’ similar to Pink. Really excited to revisit Honey.

Where did you see it confirmed? Nothing on their site or IG yet (and the coupon I received today still says Honey2... occasionally their emails have pre-leaked the next release).

On Acustica's facebook page.

Giancarlo first posted "Nest upgrade on Monday". Then he posted a big jar of real honey...

So, I guess there isn't too much else to interpret.

Are you 100% certain that it wasn’t a jar of sand?

I hope I am. Otherwise, I would have real problems doing grocery shopping.

Maybe a dig in the Sand, and pull out an update of CORAL.
